Preview: Diewald Seahorse II

Fresh off the success of their first watch, the Seahorse, Austria's Diewald is back for more with the revised Seahorse II. 
The Seahorse II’s brushed stainless steel barrel case is 43mm wide and 48mm long with a double domed, AR coated sapphire crystal and decorated case back. It is rated for 200m water resistance and has a signed, screw down crown. Integrated, drilled lugs hold the 22mm rubber strap. The 120-click, unidirectional bezel boasts a tough and glossy ceramic insert. As before, Diewald uses a Seiko NH35 automatic, a reliable 24-jewel unit that hacks, hand winds, and moves at 21.6k bph. 
Based on input from their supporters, Diewald made some minor tweaks to the design, adding numbers to the ceramic bezel, adding a contrasting pop of color to the second hand and index, and deleting the fanciful “Seahorse” model name from the dial. All the rest of the original elements remain. Its dial is once again a sunray sandwich, offering blue, black or orange over C3 SuperLuminova, which also graces the hands and bezel. Other colors may be unlocked as stretch goals later in the campaign. 
The Kickstarter campaign is already underway and the project is fully funded well ahead of its April 30 deadline. Discount pricing is still available, starting at €189 ($233 USD). ⬩
