Default Micro brand with Seiko Movement Coming

I think this will be of interest and hopefully not off-topic. I bought into a Kickstarter event last September to manufacture a new watch design. So I was one of about 130 that financed this project and I'm expecting to finally get the watch next week. If there is interest I will post pictures of the unboxing.

It is from E. C. Andersson who is from Sweden. He chose the Seiko NH05 movement for it over others like ETA. It's called the "North Sea" and you can Google it to see the website. Here are some of the Kickstarter pictures. I really like the design especially because the exposed date wheel makes the watch look a little like a Rolex Sky Dweller with its GMT wheel (also shown at the end for comparison). The watch with two bands is coming in at about $540.

Nice looking watch, I like the NH05 movement too, I've dropped a couple into a pair of 4205's, they keep near perfect time.
