When it comes to Kickstarter campaigns, we generally find out about the more interesting ones well in advance of the campaign going live. Â This time around, I became aware of one that ends in just a few more days, but I wanted to get it to your attention right quick. Â Which one? Â Why, the HKED Nemo, of course.
Now, something like theÂ HKED Nemo should be right up my alley – an affordable, small-maker steel dive watch, coming from minds that call Michigan (my old stomping grounds) home. Â I cannot say as I know a lot about the brand, but our buddies over at TwoBrokeWatchSnobs. Â Kaz and Michael have sounded suitably impressed in their podcast, and Michael has a full review done on the watch as well, along with a ton of really great photos.
In terms of specs, the HKED Nemo has things down just like we like to see (above). Â A 40mm stainless steel case protecting a Miyota movement, that’s the stuff of indie divers. Â Add in a domed sapphire crystal and a ceramic bezel (with lume), then you’re taking things a bit more upmarket. Â Thankfully, pricing stayed down, with prices starting at justÂ $375. Â As of this writing, the campaign is sitting at 92%, which is so, so close. The project ends on Monday, October 29th, so if you’re going to go, do so quickly. Â And if you, let me know if you jump on one of the very lovely bright dial shades, or some of the more traditional ones. Â kickstarter campaign
