By TLex Here's an upcoming dive watch project that I have been following with great interest. The name 'Makara' is taken from a Hindu mythological sea-creature. The name 'Octopus' was chosen to reflect the watch's octagonal case shape. Shown here is the final rendering, specifications are below.
The Makara Octopus is approximately two weeks away from the pre-order phase. Follow the thread on WUS for updates - it might be worth your while, too because two watches are going to be given away; one in steel and one in bronze!
