44mm Puck homage.

Post 6 and 8 on this page talk about a quartz puck homage 44mm, up for pre order.

A while back they had the 47 auto homage puck on pre order that sold out. I didn't get one because 47mm would not have worked for me. The watches were great looking and the people that got them loved them.

There is some stalled talk about a 44mm auto Mekur puck homage that may come to pre order, but the people who brought it up haven't talked about it for over a month.

I love the steel blue puck, it is a great looking watch and I would love to have this in a 44mm. I'm just not sure I want a quartz. I'm also not sure I want to give money to a pre order that may not happen and I may lose my money. However, if they sell out like the batch of 47mm's, I may not get one because people don't seem to want to let them go.

The renderings of these always look like a plain blue, when they come out though, it is the steel blue and it looks great.

How hard would it be to convert this to an automatic with a miyota?

Opinions please. I really like the look of this watch.

This one Arty. Halios Puck was the original and it was 47mm. This company made one and it all sold out in presale, I didn't get one because it was also 47mm. Now they are making one in 44mm. It will be a quartz and not on a stainless bracelet, but I love the steel blue look.

Quartz? not my idea of a practical Diver, then again I get my Divers wet....
Honestly , I don't like the watch either the same way I didn't care for the original Puck ...I think the best thing Halios ever did was the Laguna....

You're right, I am not crazy about quartz and it would still be huge on me. Even with the lugs the way they are, it would sit like a brick on my wrist. I like the steel blue color though, that color is one of the best blues I have seen. I need to be patient and not buy glamor crap.
