Halios Seaforth Pastel Blue

The Halios Seaforth is one of the first ever micro-brand watches I came across, and I thought it was very well designed, and put it on my list of watches to look into. But like most of the uninitiated, I only learned about each Halios release after they were all sold out, and I felt disappointed and confused. I wasn't aware of the crazy demand, and I was oblivious to all the production constraints going on behind the scenes. The good news is that Jason at Halios seems to be getting this stuff under control, and the most recent Fairwind release appears to be going smoothly. I recently reviewed the grey Fairwind, and that made me get back into this brand. But I've been revisiting some of their older designs, and the Seaforth remains a watch I'm still very much interested in. I love the design, and I particularly love this pastel blue dial. I began to annoy my friend Mike, who writes excellent watch reviews for The Time Bum and Watch Clicker, with a bunch of questions about his pastel blue Seaforth. In an attempt to shut me up, he kindly offered to let me borrow his Seaforth for a few days. This is the Halios Seaforth III with a pastel blue dial, and no bezel. Halios Seaforth watches in general can be found on the secondary market from anywhere between $600 and $1300, depending on how popular the dial and bezel combo is.

I know Halios gets a ton of love on this forum but I gotta say, I think they're a little over-rated. I've never seen a reference of a Seaforth where the 12:00 markers weren't slightly crooked. Also on the few that I've seen in person, the steel brushing is pretty uneven. I know the owner is very secretive about where they're manufactured, and I know that other brands have no problems making the dual-stick markers without being crooked, so that makes me wonder whether the factory making these is of the premium level suggested by the price.

That being said, I did like your review.
