What are the chances of some of the previous models making a return to production? In particular the Remora and the World Diver.

Given the current history and long list of hits from Benarus, I would say that there is a better than good chance you will see future production of the Remora and World Diver.

They will just be in slightly different configurations (lume, dials, bezels, handsets, and possibly different case materials/finishes than you have seen from previous production runs), in keeping with the limited runs that Steve and Ralf produce for the various Benarus models.

Right now I am leaning towards a return of the 1km with some changes. Ralf and I are still discussing the ideas.

This is one of my favorite BENARUS models.

I am looking forward to it very much.

Very interesting and somewhat suprising to me. The 1km is nice but somewhat of an "older" and common design.

I would think you would be working on modernizing your more popular designs. A next generation Megladon with a smoother, more aerodynamic (lower) design. (but keep the external bezel)

How about an XL rubber strap for the current Megladon?

Maybe a Ti 47 (or maybe 45) in black steel?

Or step out of the box and do a Benarus pocket watch?

Just sayin.....

Love the sound of a return of the 1km Steve! bravo.gif

A sweet design for sure, and I look forward to hearing what you and Ralf come up with for new variations! thumbsup.gif

When I say some design changes for a 1km, my ideas are: a crown at 4:00, no crown guards, a wider dial, a different bezel, a polished steel DLC coated bezel insert (like some Grand Seiko), brushed/polished case, a different dial, different hands, different bracelet, NOT made in Germany.

As for a new Ti47, we are finalizing a new design right now that will begin production soon and includes a bracelet with the new adjustable clasp. The new Ti47 has a different dial design and will feature a single dome sapphire to add interesting distortions from the angles.

That's one seriously chunky piece of metal on your wrist, nothing personal but I wasn't a huge fan of the old one feeling it to be a bit to tooly for me but I'm interested to see how this changes effect it's appearance. Hopefully for the better.

No one knows your business better than you guys but it's a shame that the Remora wasn't on the radar this time round because with the dart dial it was such a striking looking piece.

P.S.
Loving the Moray B Steve, it's by far my favourite watch. ThumbsUp02.gif

Blue/Steel bezel looks fantastic.
