So far I like it a lot. The build quality seems to be pretty good other than the bracelet could be a little bit better.... It's a touch on the flimsy side but no more so than standard Seiko 5 bracelets. It does however have solid end links. Lume is very good.

I did find that it was created by an outfit called Alexander James watches. Found some information on WUS.

Yup...it was advertised with that. I don't know if Alexander James added that dial or the prior owner. It was new so....

I just contacted Alex on if he will do a mod for me.
Your watch looks good, nothing not to like.

Let me know how it works out if you would please. He has a silver dial version that I've been checking out.
I did buy the same bracelet from him that was on sale to use for another watch I have

I like how AJ has taken this hobby and made it into something more. I'd love to have the skills to mod a watch someday, but if I never acquire such skills, I wouldn't mind picking up one of his. He seems like an alright guy putting together some nice watches.
