This is a new brand - Orca Watches...interesting options - quartz or auto - different bezels and dial options...

Their models have a Kobold look to them, but I actually are very nicely designed. The pricing is reasonable, especially when you back out the 19% VAT that is built into the listed prices.

This is the latest info from Carsten Stasch:


Coating is PVD for black, pure titanium is uncoated. Case is not Fricker, it's our own production.

Here is a shot of the non-PVD coated version:

I've never seen the 15 minute markings on the left side of the bezel like that...?

Hi Anomaly, we call that "Countdown-Bezel": You can set it to see how much time is left to a certain event.

@All Members:
We take community-input serius, so feel free to ask questions or make suggestions.

Best regards

Carsten - Thank you for stopping by "The Lounge"!

Please provide us with updates on the brand as you progress and prepare for delivery. I am sure that many members here will be interested to hear about new features and see new photos of Orca's watches.


One question - Do you have any plans for a bracelet? If so, do you have any photos or drawings?

Hi, I'll try my best, but I'm very busy and can hardly keep track with all forums and replies at the moment.
I will make shure that everybody gets all the info sooner or later (talking about days of delay here, not weeks).

Yes, we don't just have plans, we have a prototype already:

I really like the bit that connects directly to the case. The raised middle gives it that extra "look".
And, it's not sheet metal! Full titanium. No friction pins either: Screws.

Best regards
Carsten

I love the look. Plus, the DLC'd Ti cases should be super comfortable to wear!
