- 41mm 316L steel case with 20mm lugs and 200m water resistance

- sapphire single domed crystal with inner anti-reflective coating

- choice of dials, bezels and leather and/or steel strap

Early birds will start at only $184 for the leather strap version and only $224 for the steel bracelet version (which also includes the leather strap)

Looks good. Not sure which color bezel and which dial type I prefer. I'm not familiar with this movement. Does the second hand tick like standard quartz or is their a sweep?

1 second tick.

Until Citizen and Bulova combine their tech to give us a sweeping second hand solar powered quartz movement...which will likely never happen. SIGH.

Edit: So, I like the Armada, but I would have preferred the "30" on the bezel instead of the triangle in its place. Still a nice watch for a great price. I hope it does well!

Seems things have slowed to a crawl on the KS campaign:(

Hopefully more will join so this one will get funded, be a shame if it never saw the light of day.
