Studio Underdog Limited Edition

Anybody participating in this one?

I’m passing on it because I don’t like it as much as the other color combinations, but its an interesting watch for sure!

I had never given them much thought until I listened to the founder on the Scottish Watches podcast.  He seems like a nice guy, which totally put them on my radar.

I like the colourway but I already have the Go0fy Panda. 
I found Richard to be extremely helpful. When I ordered mine, I asked if he could bring it along to a watch event instead of sending by courier - he did so with no fuss.

I had a slight issue with the winding stem, he asked me to send it back and fixed the issue within two weeks. Just good customer service and a nice person to talk to about watches. I hope his brand continues to do well

That’s great honestly, good customer service can take a company from good to great!

Yeah I believe he was on Watchfinder for an interview and he seemed like a pretty cool dude!

I still want the Watermelon version.  So does @Ichibunz.

Not me, but only because of the movement. I had that movement in a 1963, and it was gorgeous to look at. One hit on a doorframe and it was done though. I’ve subsequently read others complaining it’s not the most robust movement. I do attribute some of that to the case, however, which provided very little protection for the movement.

Yup!! tempting for the strawberry but I’ll wait for the watermelon.

The company and its owners seem like genuine watch nerds. Similar to Baltic, I’m in once they get serviceable/better movements, even if it means a higher price.

That’s disappointing. I’d almost rather have it be a Quartz chrono at that point.

What are your thoughts on the quality of the watch itself in terms of the movement as well as the construction and finishing? I currently have another watch based on the ST19 movement, and while it keeps good time, the chronograph functionality doesn't feel overly robust. I'm a bit hesitatnt to add another ST19 based movement to the collection, but the aesthetic appeal is really hard to resist.

I was originally drawn to the brand by the Watermel0n, but all of the other variants have really started appealing to me more and more.  I originally thought that the Go0fy Panda was the least appealing of the bunch, but the more I see it, the more I'm leaning towards it. It still doesn't look as "fun" as the other models, but I suspect it may have the most staying power.
