I love it when these BaliHa'i threads pop up. Takes me back to 2008/9 when the microbrand market was tiny, and you really rooted for the owners. Forum input played a huge role in the development of these watches, and they were priced a lot higher comparatively than micros are now. These guys really had to do a lot of work to get a case produced, etc. Not the catalog watch with your name on the dial that exists now. My tastes have been refined over the years and I no longer wear these watches, but I still have two. The "original" Project 1, and the later Project C.

Very cool WB

Love the C, makes me think I should keep an eye out?

How does it wear?

Thanks Boatswain! It wears smaller than most of his stuff with the lug-less aspect but not as small as the Ha'i Q. It is still puck-ish and quite thick. Extremely heavy (which equated to quality back then). I'm familiar with most of the stuff you wear and think you would be ok but not thrilled with it's size. If you can do the Gavox you can do this.

Thanks for the note back

Maybe the Hai Q is the one I am remembering and thought I could pull off?

Was that the last one they made, quartz model?

I own a “Q.” Probably my favorite watch. Reminds me of the warm trade winds... the pedal steel guitars... the rumble of the waves beyond the reef...

I have been quietly searching for the chronograph version for almost year and I have only seen one pop on eBay. I really wish he was still selling these...
