We have been quietly working out details of the Borealis Medusa (redesigning it from scratch) and are now able to share with you some of it specs







Case diameter: 45mm, lug to lug 45mm, lug width 22mm, 500m water resistant, Miyota 9015 movement or NH35.

Thickness with 9015 movement: 12.50mm, thickness with NH35 13.50mm.

Yes, a very interesting design, and quite different from the previous design. I like the thinner profile of the current version. I'm not sure about having the bezel smaller than the case, though. It looks like it could be difficult to operate the bezel. Also, I'm not discerning any difference in the three black dial pics.. There will be more detail to come, I'm sure!

I really don't know with this one ...

Somehow dial and bezel look very busy to me. I actually very much prefer the earlier designs... and colours !



So, the bezel is no longer removable and compatible with the Manta Ray, I presume ?

Will need to see more pics, really.

I generally like the design, though the hands and markers now look a bit too "dressy" for the tool-like case.
...Unless the case has some polished surfaces.

The case has combined brushed and polished surfaces. The bezel will not share the Manta Ray system as thickness would be of 16mm compared to less than 13mm provided by a 9015 movement with this type of construction.

I prefer the previous dial, hands & bezel insert design. It was easier for my old eyes to read the time, without my reading glasses.

But I prefer the current overall shape & size of the case and bezel, which seems thinner to me. :)

Great to hear it will use regular straps, I'll probably end up ordering one.
...I hope the final design get less generic hands, something with a bit more personality.
