  6. Dailos Waveform - Affordable Titanium Diver

    I spent a little under a week with the Dailos Waveform prototype. This watch is scheduled to go live on Kickstarter in a month or so. I think if they can fix some of the (minor) QC issues on the dial and the bezel for the final production units, this one will be a big success. The dial is quite...
