Just got this one in, its a Halios Bluering diver. This is my second watch made by, or for Halios. Halios is one of those micro companies and the Bluering is their second release. Some specs then the lousy photos.

ETA 2824-2 movement
Diameter 44.5mm, 14.5mm thick, 51mm lug to lug
Domed Sapphire crystal
300m WR
Stainless bracelet with divers extension and flip-lock clasp
Rubber strap

I ordered the blue dial with ETA 2824-2 and bead-blasted finish. The Bluering comes encased in a custom Pelican case. Please excuse the pictures as the domed crystal makes dial shots difficult.

Pretty nice package, Mark. The dial looks like a nice shade of blue... and some puffy little clouds floating past.

Really love everything about this one Mark! I hovered over this one for some time but hesitated...........Love the size of the hour and minute hands and the larger arrow on the seconds hand. The dial is very clean and the hour markers are large and have some nice depth to them.....the lume has to be pretty good on this one! Great choice on the dial color and on the bead-blasting. Congratulations!

Good looking watch...

I would have gone with brushed over bead blasted...

Is BLUE RING significant of anything?

Congrats and Enjoy!

I'm guessing the dangerous Blue Ring octopus

I've never seen where the name came from but I think you're right Tim. Don't pick up one of these if you happen to diving near the Great Barrier Reef. A full grown specimen can contain enough venom to kill dozens of people.

Your watch is much better looking than the octopus, Mark. That thing just looks dangerous.

What an IMPRESSIVE watch Mark !!! Halios Bluering Icon_eek Halios Bluering 803574 It's got a uniquely
cool look, that seems very well thought out. The case, and bezel
flow together nicely, while that bracelet not only looks awesome,
but seems REALLY well made. The bead blasted look is out of this
world too ! Halios Bluering Icon_smile So is the dial for that matter. The wide hands are
almost TOO good, and I like the way they match the markers also.
Have to say, Halios makes an especially nice second hand as well.
Those triangle markers change things up nicely too ! Honestly can't
say enough good things about your watch ! Even the packaging is
exceptional !..Congratulations on getting this one !..Enjoy !!!

Very nice...really like the smooth case contours. Also its contrast with the hard bracelet edges.
Wouldn't have guessed the hard/soft would have worked so well together.
No problem reading the time on this one, nice big bold hands.
Congrats and Enjoy.

Nope, that was the Wilson Watch Works diver I got in December. Until this week that was my last watch purchase. Got two this week and expecting another in a week or so.
