I backed out of the Kickstarter on this and have been back and forth on it ever since. I was waiting for a decent sale to come up, but Black Friday came and went without one. It really doesn’t cost that much and I have done worse, so I got it.
I wanted a cheap orange beater and since the Seestern didn’t work out, I got this.
I like the Bakelite look and the 40mm size. I just have to wait a week for it to come in.

That's a funky, retro-cool look. I like that one. Look forward to seeing your pics.

It's a really cool amalgamation of various design cues, I think the bezel design was taken from the Certina DS Ph200M, and the hour markers - from the Longines Conquest.
Looks damn nice, the black chapter ring and date window are a nice pairing with the orange dial.
My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who adopts a manner of thinking for others!
