I understand we are getting a top notch OEM for this project. How’s their work compared to another recent offering like the Bundeswehr? That’s already pretty stellar in my book.

Overall quality is higher, in particular lume, case finishing and bezel. Although it seems unlikely a rotating bezel will be used for our f72 project, given the votes posted so far.

I will be focusing on this one for now as a field watch is more interesting to me right now. However, I will follow the F71 diver to see how it goes as I may switch or get both.

Also, as always I would like this to come with a bracelet!! Any chance we can stick to a vintage style and have it taper from 20mm to 16mm at the clasp? A jubilee might work for this design, if not then a simple oyster would suffice.

Or something like this?

A nice BOR would be cool! Also still interested in a ladder bracelet that was proposed before - maybe with a little less wide gaps than in the vintage example that was shown.

While I like the BoR better, I feel like everyone has one in their collection that they could just swap onto the head if they wanted, no? A ladder might be more unique. Just my .02$.

We will eventually vote on straps and bracelets (and associated costs).
I have the impression that my ladder bracelet idea wasn't universally loved, so not sure if it will survive. i found it a cool vintage sporty style.

I think the main body of negative comments was in the affordable project. Didn't see much comment on it here. I think, since f72 is a bit more vintage oriented, it might find some more ground here - don't write it off yet!

Also, I think the ladder in the pic you shared was very open, and maybe a bit too much for most ppl (including me). I think the render showed smaller gaps between the links, which looks better imho. There is room for optimizing the proportions. I like the idea, something different and if optimized it could look really cool I think!

Just a thought, but if the case will be the same for both projects, just with or without a dive bezel, then could we not have two bracelet options and pick the one we want on the watch?

Either way I guess we will all get to vote later down the line.

I guess that depends on the MOQ of a braclet and the amount of committed participants in both projects. Can imagine it might be a stretch to offer two types of bracelets..

I really do like the idea of the ladder bracelet! Let's not give out on that one just yet!
