Goodspeed Watches out of Sacramento will be launching a new model, the Scout on Kickstarter on Mon Feb 1st.
The campaign will only be open for a week's time.
This one has really caught my eye, and I may have to jump on this one if I can scrounge up the $$.

You can learn more about the Scout here - https://www.goodspeedwatches.com/

Goodspeed has posted that the preorder pricing will start at $360

The Scout will be available in four colorways - blue, black, green, or the recently included crimson.

Check out their mid-century style ads, I absolutely LOVE these:

The dimensions work for me. Let's see what the price is.

I could do without the cursive font used in the model's name, but that's a small issue.

Looks like the GOO (left part of the logo) is wider then the EED. Seems the kerning isn't right.

Good eye....knew something was off but couldn’t quite place it. Can’t unsee that.

More pronounced on the dial, I think.

The hour hand on the red dial version is shorter than that of the other three.

The longer hand looks best to my eye, anyway.

Thank you for adding this info here, John! I didn't even think to add it to the brand/model specific thread. Adding a mental note for future finds.
