Dave, awesome photos as always! Although it is a shame you didn't include some wrist shots ... a real tool watch looks right at home with those sleeves. :-!

In addition to Keith's selection of your superlative caseback design, I also remember his receptivity to a number of DWF suggestions when the Harpoon was in the creating stages ... including that ceramic bezel that we all are so looking forward to.

Holy Crap... The Harpoon checks so many boxes. The bezel is what makes this watch, and the lume is typical of Keith and one of the best. I love the bracelet he uses, this is one of the most smoothest and the most comfortable bracelets you will ever have on your wrist. The caseback is a work of art. Dave, you did one helluva job my friend. Kudos to Keith for putting this on the Harpoon. This one will be on my list of Must Haves, just hope some will be available.

loving the looks of this piece, especially the bezel. I have question for those that already have it, how is the bezel action? is it tight? and does everything line up?

Hope this helps...here is a link to a review on another forum: Watch Review: Boschett Harpoon 1000m Diver - Watch & Strap Reviews: - General Watch Discussions - Watch Freeks

Quoted "The bezel is a 120 click bezel and is very firm. It rotates nicely, but you do have to apply some pressure. This , to me , is a plus rather than a con, as so many 120 click bezels can be too easy to turn. The Triangle lume dot also matches up perfectly with the hour and minute markers as well, and when put in place, stays there. "

Yes, and yes!

As mentioned, the saw-tooth bezel is extremely easy to grip, but it has a strong enough spring that it should not accidentally turn if the bezel should strike a surface at the wrong angle.

Case back sweet. The watch evokes a feeling of "just another dive watch" for me personally. Can't always be flowers in these threads.

However, I do hope you enjoy your new watch!

Re: Harpoon has landed!

@ Sheriffd2

Great watch, and some great pictures there!

I see in your signature that you also have the Cave Dweller, I don't suppose you have taken any comparison shots of the pair of them have you?
