I will send Jas a TF and the Seestern to compare and review against his Maranez if he wants to do it.

After his review, we can send them both out to others who want to try these for fit and build before they drop some coin on one. If TF fixes the bezel, I will grab some more colors for beaters. I really like the look and build of these, the TF just fits me better.
That works for me, and very generous of you.

This guy did some of the most comprehensive reviews of the homages and Doxa also.

From other reviews, most lean to Maranaz as the best, but I don't think there's been a good Frog vs Seestern. Maranaz is also the most expensive with the same movement.

A guy on Facebook bought both, mostly Frogs, but as usual on Facebook, not much details.
PM me your address and I’ll get them out.

Swiped from Facebook... I spoke to a rep from Maranaz, and she confirmed they use a gloss dial, not matte.

I like the Seestern bezels better. The Maranez appears to win on case finishing, dial design and bracelet quality though. At least that’s my take, based solely on that photo.

Would still wear either.

Dang, that orange dial looks fantastic in his video.

Allison sent me the watches, and I should have a review tomorrow or Wednesday, including the Maranaz.

Looking forward to it.

A legitimate review by someone I trust, this is cool.
