Ed is putting out a nice looking vintage dive watch. Here is a link with the specs.

It's 40mm, NH35 movement, 660 feet, domed crystal, custom bor bracelet, a lumed 120 click bezel with full markings (except the blue, it will not have full lume). The blue is also the only one with a date.
It's tasteful, choices are a nice blue, a cool brown and standard black dials.
He said it is being made all from scratch with no off the shelf parts for the watch case, dial, indices, bezel and bracelet.
If you have seen Eds previous projects (the 63 and the Bundeswehr) then you know his work is very good and quality is super.
You can expect your watch in Aug or Sep. I know you guys don't like to pay and wait, but Ed is legit and has a good reputation.

$175.00 deposit and $175.00 before delivery. Not a bad price at all. Oh, plus shipping.

I do not work for Ed and am not a schill. I just think it looks better than a lot of other watches and it's cheaper and a good size.

Yeah Mort, I like the brown too.

Here's some watch projects I bought from hked.
The 63

The bundeswehr

I think his homage watches are tops, he always seems to nail it. They seem to hold value too, I'm not saying I could get what I paid or make money on a resale, but I won't take a bath if I sell them.

He said the quality of this new dive watch will be one of the best he's put out.

I really like the blue model. I don't really mind the rice band either.

Well, I said I wasn't getting this, but I put a deposit down for the brown. I thought about how I hate being on vacation and having to switch from a vintage to a big hunk diver all the time, so this diver is small and looks vintage....the best of both worlds.

Well, HELL, Svagy, that means I may have to as well, though I definitely don't want to take away your joy at being the ONLY one to get this pup, if that's your druthers...still...that BROWN rocks the house!!! I just wish he would use a Miyota 8N24 auto movement instead of the "TMI" (AKA Seiko) series... :| I guess I'm a Miyota-holic! :shock:

I won't be the only one getting one. Koi and Love are getting the blue.

I like that it is a small size diver with vintage looks and style, I won't have to wear a lunk of a watch in case I want to swim while I'm out and about. I have no doubts this watch will be nice. Ed said the quality will rival his 63, so I know it's going to be great.

Better hurry, he said once pre order closes there will be no more made and it is a great tribute to the Technos dive watch.

I think they turned out nice. Of course I folded and went in for the brown.
