Not a bad looking watch. Honest price IMHO

Though the 821A might be "compared" with the ETA 2824 and 2892 it doesn't mean equal to. The ETA's win every time.
Clever marketing for a watch that not only doesn't exist , but might not ever exist.

Amen to that. The 821A shares one thing with the two ETAs- abundance. Not that it's a bad or inaccurate movement, but even the "workhorse" 2824 is a more robust design. Not to mention the 2892, which is probably one of the most universal and well-made ebauches out there.

Not that I dislike the Miyota, but comparing it to the ETAs is largely like comparing a Sherman to a Tiger.

Has a Tudor-ish vibe. The raised bezel pip is a bad idea.

That brand name sounds like a scuttled ninth verse of Shirley Ellis' "The Name Game."

A Black Bay homage in green? I like it.

If I see a Kickstarter watch I like, I wait til it is released then look for one on the used market. There are plenty of flippers within the first week or two of release.
I bought the COURG that way, everyone was gaga over it and had only good to say when they posted it on forums. I looked around and got an insane deal, the cheapest I've seen yet.
I was very underwhelmed when I got it. The reviews didn't do it justice, I don't know the quality of watches these people were used to, but it couldn't have been anything over a hundred dollar fashion brand. The more I wore it, the more fault I found and I tried to like it. It looks o.k and serves a purpose as a beater if I want to wear that style in unfriendly conditions, plus the size is great for me. But it just isn't close to what I hoped for or was led to believe it was by other forums.

So now I am hesitant on a Kickstarter on the used market, it would have to be a heck of a deal for me to try another one.
