    CREPAS Loggerhead price 654.48 US deposit 159.62 US

    I'm not a fan of group watch projects, but putting this up here.

    529 Euro equals 654.48 US Dollar
    129 Euro equals 159.62 US Dollar

    PROJECT "LOGGERHEAD" BY CREPAS WATCHES & DIVER´S WATCHES FACEBOOK GROUP.
    “CREPAS WATCHES Company in cooperation with Diver´s Watches Facebook Group, is happy to announce a newly-commissioned project, designed and produced from scratch, exclusively for the members of the Diver’s Watches Facebook Group.
    We have been working since August 2017 following the instructions and direct supervision of Andreas S. Gregoriades, the Founder of the Group, and it is a pleasure to inform you that this model is the first one which has been designed from zero for all of you; so this is an important advantage and added value for this project because this model will be produced exclusively for the Diver´s Watches Facebook Group. We, at Crepas/Tactico, are very happy and proud for that. During all these months our work has been hard but we believe the final design is insuperable, really amazing and looks like a vintage diver watch taste.
    The name of this project is ‘Loggerhead’ [which is the modern name of the Caretta Caretta turtle] and is inspired from vintage diver’s watches of the 1960´s. The ‘Loggerhead’ will be a limited and numbered edition of 400 pieces featuring five dial color options: orange, yellow, black, blue and luminova. The DW Loggerhead will only be produced for this group and will not be manufactured anymore after that.
    The ‘Loggerhead’ will carry the ETA Cal. 2824-2, the most common and tested movement used by the best brands in the market.

    It's a nice looking watch with some cool color choices, but I agree. I'm not too impressed with the price for a pre-order. I can pick Raven models up for less with an ETA 2824. It's still in the same price range. The Tornado kit I picked up last year was nice for the price with finish and quality.

    Doesn’t scream anything different to me. I have a few watches with this case design/look. I guess I was expecting something different from Crepas. Not horribly bad for the price but there is more to choose from at this price point.
    If you're an astronaut and you don't end every
    relationship by saying "look, I just need space"
    then you're wasting everyones time.

    So this is basically a Doxa homage, no? In that category, I've owned several Irreantum Magellans over the years, which you can find for $350-$550 and get that really nice beads of rice bracelet. The Irreantum, just as a comparison, also has the Eta auto, and the lume is nuclear.

    The Tornado just didn't live up to my expectations.
    I like the look of the watch, but the quality for the price wasn't there for me. The bezel seemed poorly done with too much backwards play. It turns almost freely the first half and then almost locks up and takes effort to turn the bezel the second half.
    I wasn't impressed with their CS either. Took 3 emails and a month to get the extras I ordered with the watch when they forgot to ship them with the watch.
