By TLex Introducing PANTOTR Watches, a new start-up from Hong Kong. Their debut divers model, the Seahorse may or may not be familiar to you as it shares the exact same case as well as a number of its components including; the bezel, crown and bracelet as the Essex Watches La Primera.
The La Primera is powered by a Swiss automatic movement and has 'Made in Germany' printed on its dial. Its MSRP is around the 2000+ USD (one the main objections that people had about it). The Pantor Seahorse by contrast is powered by a Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic caliber. It makes no bones about its Asian origins and can be had for just 599USD.
