NSA (New Strap Alert) ๐Ÿšจ

Added an 18mm black artem strap to the collection, which cost more than I paid for some of my seikos ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Still worth it I think, love the material and...

Steel mesh would look great, otherwise cannot recommend artem sailcloth enough!

I added some bullet points ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

commented on Dream GADA watch? ยท

Some of this youre already doing very well:

+non numerical indices (otherwise its more of a field feel) can better transition from office to beach to dinner

+36-39mm case size but modest dial diameter (ranger is 39mm but is too much dial, for example)

+your premium bracelet with quick release is great (keep it up!) but bracelets can always be improved and tend to be a majorly distinguishing feature for elevating watches, GADA or otherwise

+matte finish on the dial but different color options perhaps utilizing the seconds hand as the only pop of color

+domed or boxed sapphire, screw down crown and at least 10ATM but ideally 20ATM

+perhaps not practical, but COSC certification

+I don't think lume is as big a feature as some make it out to be, and the only watch I depend on regularly for use in the dark has trutium tubes, which is also impractical or unnecessary for a vaer GADA in my opinion

+hardened steel is a hugely desirable feature, big reason why Traska is always sold out of many watches

+continue developing your own design language, separate yourself more to add to the value proposition of choosing vaer over other similarly situated brands with distinct designs in the GADA realm (thinking CW, nivada, formex, etc., which are more expensive but might present a better option for folks willing to spend a bit more for features and distinct design)

Cabot White Dial w/ Sapphire

Could definitely do without the "QUARTZ" and solid lugs, and yet I still love this watch.
