Good luck with the project bro, unfortunately divers watch isn't really my style.
However I got the AV001 on my radar, might very well pull the trigger before the year ends.

Seriously? Can you show me a second set of hands that look this close to what I've drawn for the Huldra?
Flieger or ploprof hands are pretty much stock and used every where but as far as I can tell the Huldra handset is/was unique because I designed them unless there's something out there that is 99% the same that I'm unaware of.

Have to agree with Chip. Those look just like his hands. Athaya must've inadvertently (hopefully) stumbled across the same hands supplier as Aevig.

Yeah, assuming an innocent mistake on Athaya's part, I think Chip should have a long talk with his factory. Not that it's likely to do much good. :)

Hello Chip, thank u very much for your comment.

Here is another details for this watch..



I believe most of Micro brand watch, including mine are inspired by other watch that ever made in the world. We make a new one to enrich the creation, adding another collection and also build a watch as a tribute to a masterpiece watch that ever made.

I do not deny that this Lamafa are the same, its made inspired by some beautiful vintage watch that ever made, such as Vintage Seiko 6105-8110, Vintage Wittnauer Super Compressor, and others, by improve and do some modification in hope to make it looks nicer and also get some interest from watch collector.





Looks really good homage. Why Indiegogo rather than Kickstarter?
I really want to put it on kickstarter, but somehow, it still dont accept kickstart from my country :(

again, thank u very much for all your comment and inputs.
