Raid Watches has been making watches since the 90's and are well
known in Italy as well as Japan. They have several collections including
this one..their MARINA Collection. Which is a tribute to WWII's Italian
Special Unit Xa Flottiglia Mas. There are a few models, most of which
have specially engraved bezels. There is the Special or Parabellum which
uses vintage styled orange lume. These come in stainless steel and PVD
finishes. There is also a chronograph model that uses white lume. It
comes in stainless and PVD finish too. The cases are 48mm, with 200m
water resistance, 100m on the chronograph version. The crowns are on
the left side keeping with this tradition in order as not to interfere with
diving equipment years ago. ETA 2824 Automatics are used, as is the
7750 in the chronograph version. These watches are limited in production
and cost between 1000 and 2000 Euros. You can check out a VERY well
done website from Raid with alot more collections below as well as the
Oceanictime website..Enjoy ! Ever Heard of Raid Watches ? Icon_biggrin

Some good looking stuff Tom; reminds me of some Zeno-Watch Basel models. I like the vintage look of the the Manual collection. Fav would be the Decima Mas Special.

Not 100% sure about the prices in dollars Alan, but it does say models
range from 1000-2000 Euros ! Ever Heard of Raid Watches ? Icon_smile..Good point with the Zeno look as well
Chris, the designs are really cool looking and they also have quite a few
collections to choose from !..Thanks guys..I thought they might be pretty
interesting to look at ! Ever Heard of Raid Watches ? Icon_cheers

There are some Aviation styles also like the D-Day 44 Manuel CDG that are
nice, as well as the Manuel 42 Murcielago which has a cool yellow dial, with
what look like bats on the dial. The Italo Balbo also has a dial that goes
sideways ! Ever Heard of Raid Watches ? Alien

Just saw them in professional trip to Milan in Grimoldi,Pza Duomo...
Beautiful pieces,but 1500 euro at this period look a bit steep for an unknown brand...
So didn't buy it and already partly regretted it...
