KREMKE HEQ (Military Spec. Diver)

By TLex Please find below details of Ian Kremke's latest project. The combination of blue and black work extremely well together!

From Ian Kremke I am thinking of introducing a "grab and go" High-End Thermo-Compensated Quartz timepiece to our collection.

The design brief is to come up with a rugged, reliable, affordable and super-accurate tool watch that can be used and abused in the line of duty and/or recreation.

By affordable, i mean under US$1000 and by no means inferior in quality and workmanship.

I am aiming for a fresh yet refined style, with a serious functional undertone.
