It's finally here, I ordered this on Kick starter back on Jan 19th....so 8 months! This was a retro diver from Manchester Watch Works.http://www.manchesterwatchworks.com/store/p11/The_TATOSKOK_Automatic_Dive_Watch_%28Pre-order_Now_Open_for_the_final_90_pieces%29.html
There is still 90 left from the LE of 300, I have #145/300. The price on Kickstarter was $255, plus with the stretch goals this came with 3 straps, sapphire glass, and anti-reflective coatings...this was an outstanding deal even with out the stretch goals.
