There's not a lot of content in L4P's watch section compared to the other forums I frequent; however, I've seen multiple "best sub-$1000 watch" questions floating around. At that price point, the suggestions usually balance aesthetics and features.

Today, this Kickstarter link was posted in a watch group that I'm a part of. The aim of the project is to provide an affordable auto. watch with features that aren't common in the targeted price range. I'm in no way affiliated with this project and the aesthetics aren't exactly to my tastes, but if this project secures funding, it will make for a great beginner's watch or even reliable, daily wear option.

Interesting project, as it's headed by watch enthusiasts that understand the demand. Below are a few pictures. I'm also including the Kickstarter link, as there's a video about the watch on the page. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/544218876/the-golden-age-dive-watch-a-new-era-for-affordable

nothing new and still can't compete with a Seiko skx007 and skx009 in my opinion.
Can't expect a brand on Kickstarter to immediately compete with Seiko. The SKX00X are excellent, though a major complaint has long been that they lack the option of having sapphire crystal, which the above watch has, along with 904L. Just another option on the field.

what is this EDI E-353 automatic movement?
where will the watch be made?
There's a section on the Kickstarter page that covers the manufacturing/assembly. Would like to hear more about the "partial rebuild" that happens in the Swiss location.
