Has anyone gotten in the 1970 yet? I am thinking about pulling the trigger on it. Would love to hear thoughts if anyone owns one already. I did get a lume shot on it. Looks awesome!
Well ..., this looks better than expected . Not helping my 63 decision

Must be the angle but that looks very nice, where's the bracelet from?
I should have added in my original post this doesn't fit correctly but was an experiment to see if I like the look of a bracelet. It's an after market skx007 bracelet. It sits a little to high and I will be trying a couple different bracelets to see if I can get a good fit.

I'd love a good bracelet option too. Keep us posted! For now it sits pretty comfy on my HODINKEE horween strap.

I totally just pulled the trigger on the 1970, something about perusing these threads late at night leads to a new watch. The 1970 breaks a lot of my usual "must-haves" including a bracelet, domed sapphire crystal, 40-42mm diameter, and 20-22mm lug width but it just looks so darn cool. And that lume shot! After seeing pictures on the well designed website, I was expecting it to be in the $500 range, but at $250, my finger immediately hit add to cart and checked out.

My wrists are only 6.75" but flat and I've worn a few 44mm cushion cased watches with 24mm straps and they were surprisingly comfortable while having nice wrist presence. Hoping this one feels the same!

Isnt this strap almost the same price as the watch? How do you like it? Is the strap worth the $$? it's an amazing combo I love it
It's $140 over at the HODINKEE shop right now. I've had mine for about a year and on many watches, absolutely fantastic quality! The horween leather is very thin but is still strong while being able to flex a little. It's a magical leather and I'd recommend anyone who can to buy one! You won't regret it. Also, it smells incredible!

Just received word from Dan that he'll be introducing new lines of watches (including one similar to the 1970) but all smaller/more manageable in size. Woohoo!

I ordered the 1963 steel bezel as well. Can't beat a price like that & the vintage vibe as well, nothing to loose really. Only wish it was a mechanical.

Ha, ha, ha......you are not the only one.
Every watch enthusiast has the same issue even if he owns really expensive pieces.
Besides that, I think that both of them, 1963 & 1970, are awesome.
I know nothing about their quality but the design is amazing.

I have to believe w/ his own personal & amazing collection that these have to stand up to a good quality. I know nothing about Dan except what I've read but he has amazing tastes in his personal collection...

Only time will tell, I ordered the 63 last night & it ships from New Jersey.
