Obris Morg. is still very much competitive.
I was browsing their catalogue the other day, quite surprise to see few other models with 9015 offered @ 299USD.
I am looking into HELBERG Chrono CH2 and CH3 right now... priced quite competitive compare to other dive watches with chronograph functions in the market. Although do not come with STEEL bracelet in the package. Duh...

From the British side... the only label with 2824 movement that is "budget" friendly with good WR specs, and good package content... is only from TimeFactor's PRECISTA.

priced @ GBP340, package with additional rubber strap that matches with the dial color... but shipping additionally charged.

I was reading about TimeFactors.com, sounded like it's a one man operation, much like Movas.

Considerably a "micro" brand, F71 from WUS Affordable forum...
Folks over there are planning to come out with another forum project which is going to be a homage to the recently announced SeaMaster from OMEGA for the upcoming "007" sequel "SPECTRE".
Meet project F71 SPECTRE... this is just the most recent design idea from fellow members over there.
Image

Price had not been fixed yet, but from the discussions, lots are expecting that it will fall under USD$250, depending on specs and volume of response.
Discussion here... should any bruds have their interests...

The design is not yet finalized, so as the price. Yes... it could be cheaper than the PRECISTA, but judging from the budget and the discussion so far, it will certainly not be fitted with Swiss Engine that costs a few time much more than China DG movement, or Miyota 8XXX calibres. In the discussion some where @ page 25 or around there... there was a mention of shortage of 9015 movement. So... let's see how the project continues to be...
But certainly, may not happen this year, due to the tight schedule...

This version may be based on the L&H orthos diver. Don't mind the larger case, but it needs coin edge bezel rather than the scallop bezel. A 12 hour bezel like the spectre would be nice too.

Engine wise maybe a NH35?

Yes.
Maybe base on Orthos. But if u take a look @ the poll most voters go for from scratch. I voted for the 2nd option. To keep costs lower by some percentage.

The brass version looks good but after adding shipment cost (USD60), I am not sure if is worth paying so much.

Maybe got bros here want to combine order to share shipment cost?
