WR specs of 3500m? This shall put most divers watches out there into shame... :lol: on paper.

For 500eu, you'll only get SS casing with bracelet.

For 550eu, you'll get BRONZE case!!! but with lubber lah...

Main stream brands with such specs will certainly hit more than 550eu. One benefit of keep supporting micros, is that you get bang for buck value from whatever you paid after a purchase. And these watches are made to be VFM but not for speculations... who knows, numbers of years later, when one micro watchmaking company goes down, those people who have positive impressions from them will look around for old makes again?

The prices quoted are subjected for further VAT removal, and inclusive of shipping charges worldwide. Hence this leads me to think of STEINHART... TRITON 1000 which is about this price with the workhorse movement we knew, but excludes shipping charges.

To be frank, i am tempted now... although my favorites still goes to the 'S' brands...

According to the last and latest post on the project update...
Pre-order will start tomorrow but can will already divulge pricing. Prices already include worldwide delivery via Fedex.

Regular Sales Price without VAT after pre-order
610 EUR for Stainless Steel
650 EUR for Bronze CuSn8

Pre-order price (without VAT):
499 EUR for Stainless Steel with 50% deposit
549 EUR for Bronze CuSn8 with 50% deposit

Pre-order special (without VAT) (for customers that buy a Prometheus Watch from November 1st 2014 till December 31st 2014)
449 EUR for Stainless Steel with 50% deposit
495 EUR for Bronze CuSn8 with 50% deposit

If customers choose to pay full deposit we have the following options:
Full deposit Regular (without VAT)
475 EUR for Stainless Steel with 100% deposit
509 EUR for Bronze CuSn8 with 100% deposit

Full deposit special (without VAT):
400 EUR for Stainless Steel with 100% deposit and customer purchased a Prometheus Watch from November 1st 2014 till December 31st 2014
445 EUR for Bronze CuSn8 with 100% deposit and customer purchased a Prometheus Watch from November 1st 2014 till December 31st 2014

Each watch will include:
1 quality 316L stainless steel bracelet with diver extension (stainless steel model)
1 hirsch 40478850-2-22 rubber strap black (retail price over $120 USD)
1 custom made leather strap with Prometheus buckle (stainless steel or bronze CuSn8)

So this means if you buy from us a watch from November 1st till 31st of December 2014 and choose a full deposit you will get a Prometheus Poseidon for 400 EUR in stainless steel version ($500.00 USD at todays rate) or 445 EUR for a Bronze CuSn8 version ($558.00 USD at today's rate).

This is in my opinion a very competitive offer and one of the best in market.

Doesn't sound too bad if the build quality is up to scratch with that of an equivalent priced Seiko or Citizen.

The thing about micro brands is the cachet of exclusivity, very much like how much extra people are willing to pay for say a normal Sumo vs a limited edition Sumo, or for that matter, a limited edition AP Royal Oak versus a normal one for example.

Since there's no mention of limitation in manufacture quantity, and according to the information given, we can have the little "luxury" of time to consider until he end of the year to place special full deposit which have bigger savings...
Hmmm... if you have the patience though... for deliveries schedule all the way till next year...
