I think the pre-order price of $325 is fair for what you get:-!Isn't the price is a bit steep for what you get ?
Afaik Arctos is managed by MSC M.Schneider & Co. in Münster/Germany since 2010.
(MSC M.Schneider & Co. - Wir erstellen Uhren in limitierten Auflagen sowie Unikate). A lot of their watches look like Private Label.
The standard preorder price is $525.$ 325 indeed is fair, however when I visited the preorder site it was 525 Euro ?? I must be missing something.
