Looks alright. I really dig the engraved spaceship on the back. How much? I was watching on mute.

I like that, it has a decent movement too, but at 44mm it would be too large for me.

Well. Looks like these are more Miyota-packed

I can't see any Carrera inspirations here, like the video suggests- there's something from an Autavia in that design, the 12 o'clock numeral looks very Panerai, the rest is slightly Breitling-ish. Design-wise, not a bad watch. Only if it had an automatic movement, even a modular one...

Checked other Dan Henry watches- I only don't like how their "1947" knocks off the design of the 1940s Omegas powered by the cal. 30 T2 RG.

The 1970 diver would indeed be greatly improved by cutting down the size. Even if not to 38mm, then at least to 40.

After reading pretty much all positive comments on various forums and looking at DH's watch collection and reading other shit I caved and ordered a 1963 black bezel.
I don't care that it's quartz cuz it looks so damn good and that's all I care about these daze!

Nice prices at ~$250. Looks like nice offerings at a more than reasonable price. Shame they run so large.
