New NTH Subs Pre-Order

You know The Time Bum digs the NTH Subs series. I liked them in 2016, I liked them in 2017, and I like what I am seeing for 2018 too. On Monday, September 3, at 12:00 PM GMT (8:00 AM EDT) NTH will release the latest variants for sale at the mothership JanisTrading.comas well as the following retail partner websites:
Singapore - Watch Wonderland.

[Don't forget that both Janis Trading and WatchGauge will be at District Time, Sunday, September 30, 2018, from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM at 421 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC.]
Näken Renegade

The watches being released are the Näcken Renegade, the Scorpène Blue, the full-lume dial Näcken Vintage White, the Bahia, the Skipjack, and two new unisex designs, the Dolphin, available in Magenta or Ice.  They are also offering two special edition models exclusively through two retail partners: The Holland will be sold at, and the Nazario Sauro will be sold only at
Scorpéne Blue
Prices will range from $625 - $650 based on the model (see below). Delivery is targeted for late-October*, just 6 to 8 weeks from pre-order, with the exception of the Holland, which should be delivered in mid-November.
Now, before you think they are just the same old Subs with snazzy new dials, you should know that NTH has made significant improvements to the bracelet since the previous release based on customer input, including thicker links, slightly shorter links to improve and comfort, repositioning the center links so that those links can pivot at both ends, oval links with convex-curved inner surfaces, and softer edges. In addition, they have produced a new, sturdier clasp with a chamfered top edge, and twice as many micro-adjustment positions.
