Spent some time getting up to speed on this one and I must say, and I
Don't for most micro brands, but this is a must have. What a classic interpretation of the original. bravo.gif

Any chance of it being 41mm? With 20mm SEL rivet bracelet?

Just came across this, very nice! I like the 42mm size, no crown guard. I'd probably prefer the sword hands, but the Mercedes is fine too. Only thing that could make it even better for me would be a no-date version, I'd be all over that.

Let me share a little inside info about my experience with a non date version. We had a few produced with the Remora 1 (myiota 9015) and the 1st bronze Moray (ETA 2824). When I handled the non-date versions I did not like how it felt. The factory removed the gear and date wheel for whatever reason on those watches and it did not feel right when you pulled the crown out in the 1st position, and then going into time setting position also felt strange. I had to send 1 of the bronze moray "Top Grade 2824" back to the factory because the crown wouldn't sit in the time setting position.

Ralf and I discussed the idea of producing some non date versions of this watch, I said we need to leave the date gear and the date wheel in place and just use a dial with no date window, but for whatever reason the factory will not produce them this way, I am not a technical expert on why they need to remove it, but in the end Ralf and I decided that the date is in a well designed place that looks like the 3:00 hour mark and I do not want half the watches to have technical problems due to modifying the movements.

Understood. You had actually mentioned this to me about the Moray as well. I don't understand the reasoning behind having to remove the date wheel, but if it doesn't work it doesn't work. I should have known you already considered it.

I wear non date hand winds often and I don't mind either way (date or no date), but when I check into the rock climbing gym I have to sign my name and date it and I always look at my watch for the date and half the time I am looking at a watch with no date, haha.

I know what you mean. No date has always been my preference,simply for aesthetic reasons, but more and more my watches have the date, and it has become natural to check for the date. I do find myself checking the date on my no-date models.-)
