    Turtle's are great - solid watch
    (I've still got the hefty bracelet it came with but I prefer leather so leather went on it)
    Here's mine saying hello in readiness for your imminent purchase

    (Apparently mine has a chronomètre grade movement in it too)

    It looks nice, would like the white dial more if it were the same style as the black, rectangular markers with no giant numbers, and of course I don't like the bezel insert ( needs fewer numbers and full indexing, personal preference) and looking at the shot on that serious wrist it looks like is to flat for the length.

    still a good looking watch

    I agree w/ Lex. White dial is much nicer. Reasonable price for Made in Germany and reputable, solid build.

    Kemmner has a very good reputation for quality although he can often be slow to reply to emails from what I hear.
    Good watch though and definitely worth the money.
