That looks fantastic! They (Baltic) really do a fantastic job with design. I have seen them in the metal once, but would love to hear your thoughts overall on the piece!

Sorry for my late reply to your question. Overall, great watch that punches above its price point. A few nitpicky things:

1. case shape - basic, you don't get the curves and finishing at this price level
2. case design - at least for me, the lugs are a bit too long
3. thickness - thicker than anticipated, despite it being a manual wind
4. dial - love the two different finishes.

I haven't had any QC issues with mine but note that a few other collectors had problems with theirs that needed to be sent back.

No worries, I was just curious. Thank you for taking the time to reply.
