    Deep Blue starts Air Blue Pilot watches

    Interesting development. They are funding it with kickstarter. I remember when Deep Blue was started.

    Bravo looks cool , bit like a cross between a rusky aviator thingy (can't remember the precise brand) and a errrr damasko or a Sinn (more so the white dial version)

    Don't care for the others to be fair

    Yeah, Stan has been at it for a long time. I'm not crazy about the watches but at $190 it's not a bad deal.

    I wouldn't mind the Seiko movement at all , but think it's better behind closed doors to be honest , its not a looker like that lady next to Bernie earlier

    I do like the PVD Chrono. At $190 I may just be in.

    To me it looks like this Eco Drive you can get in Argos for 100 (and I've seen on offer for much less before)

    Find the collection a bit underwhelming to be honest. The usual suspects are there - fliegers, Sinnalikes, chronos - but no new twist to really grab me

    Well spotted Ohdark30, you obviously do one hell of a lot of watch seeking lol
    That's disturbingly the same

    Yeah, I bought one of these for an American WIS on another forum, he couldn't get it over there
    *Very* similar
    More writing on the Citizen, but better placed, I think
    And, as a pilot, I find the Air Blue logo a bit lame too, referencing a DI (direction indicator) - not found in many planes except little Cessnas etc

    I think they'd have been better using the established deep blue brand name on them (yes I know deep for diving and air for upstairs lol , but still) , but I agree the logo looks naff.
    Trying to branch out without the support of the existing brand name ..... risky business.

    No Pilot / Flieger / Aviation/ Military signifier has been left unappropriated.

    To be fair to it, the chrono movement is more useful than the one in the Citizen, which includes a slaved-24-hour subdial, always a sign that you're on the entry level.
