Not sure about you guys. BUT I am eagerly anticipating the release of the 'Schaumburg Watch' Aquatitan 2000m. I was told by a contact at Lindburgh & Benson on May 20th that it should be available in 8 weeks from then. Anyway, I thought I'd share some shots + a few details (pdf) for anyone else who might be wondering about this watch.

Cheers :-!

Okay, now I'm confused by Lindburgh & Benson's branding strategy....

Which is their main brand? Nauticfish? Or Schaumburg?:-s:-s:-s

Overall, I like these better than the Nauticfish, though. The bezel looks easier to grip, and I particularly like the date wheel. Don't like the hands, so much.

Oh, and the 'He' marking on the dial is really cheesy. It should be eliminated.

The 3rd crown is....what? A bezel lock?

But definitely going in the right direction! Could we get a gray/silver dial?

Looks good but theres just too much out there @ that pricepoint I would pull the trigger on first.

Movement is a wiss made SW20 A . SW stands for Schaumburg Watch ? But what´s 20 A then ? Sellita or ETA ?
It's a Sellita SW 200, a copy of the 2824-2 using a few parts from ETA.
It's nowadays very difficult to source either one of these Movements, so small watch companies take what they can get, sometimes even writing in their specs: ETA 2824-2 OR Sellita SW 200.

The version with the seconds subdial at 9:00 is very interesting though. It's a 2824-2 modified by L&B/Schaumburg. They call it SWA-612. Didn't know that was possible. Panerai uses a 7750 to achieve the same result.

Looks like the AquaTitan is out for $1400. I just wish they wouldn't put these silly 3 dates on on the dial :roll:. Otherwise I think this is a very fun looking Ti diver and 2000m :-!. Also has a nice bezel lock.

Here is a nice pic from watchbuys:

Is that a tachymetre around the chapter ring of the blue model?

Why would a non-chronograph have a tachymetre? Or, better, why would a dive watch have one? To time swimming fish?

Very true, that version is a bit busy and I'm not sure that the blue really works, well not for me anyway. :-s BUT perhaps in black or the more simplified Karbon 01 version might be more appealing.

This first one is a real beauty and the strap is a perfect match! :-!

The black Karbon model is sweet, but where's my bracelet? No bracelet option = no sale...

Not a bad looker, but I agree with MD51. To many others out at that price I'd go after first. I must say it is interesting.

They are two separate brands that use the same case. You can also add Enzo and Ocean to the group that use the same case.
