After having a V1 Sea Storm for about a year now, I can confirm it's a great watch. I'm not getting a V2 but I'm interested in the SS bracelet, when and if it will also be available for purchase separately. Here it is next to my recently acquired Portus Cale:

Nice duo!

The bracelets will be available if and only if we manage to sell at least 300 Sea Storm V2s.

Success depends on pre-orders.

Carlos,
I have a question about the construction differences between the sapphire and ceramic bezels. It appears from my V1 Sea Storms, that the insert color ,lume, and markers are all on the underside of the transparent sapphire insert. This would appear to make the sapphire insert color, lume, and markers very resistant to scrapes and wear. The ceramic insert, on the other hand, appears to have the lume and marker color on the top of the colored ceramic, in etched grooves, with a coating of some sort over the lume. This would appear to make the ceramic insert more prone to scuffs and wear, compared to the sapphire insert, even though both types of material are very hard. Is this a correct interpretation of the construction of the two insert types?

Some extra variants (there will be a total of 18 versions)
Thanks for bringing back the Sea Storm. Is the brightness/longevity approximately the same between BGW9 and Old Radium lume, or does one noticeably outperform the other? I like the aesthetics of Old Radium more but if BGW9 lasts markedly longer I would chose it over the former.
Thanks in advance.

BGW9 lasts longer though old radium has a higher initial glow

Carlos,
Is the blue V2 Sea Storm really a dark blue, similar to that shown? I ask because I've been bitten too many times by shades of blue that came out a lot lighter than shown in photos.
Thanks!
