I saw this earlier today and planned on posting it when I got home. Looks good! I like the 40mm sizing and the fact it's <12mm tall, too.

DO you thin that watches like these will be worth any more than the Kickstarter purchase price?

Hard to say.
I've seen other micros unload inventory on Touch or Modern or Drop at prices that are close to what the Kickstarter pricing was.
Then you have certain brands that are able to stay competitive and hold pricing or even move beyond the group funded model. NTH comes to mind.

The hope is you shouldn't lose any more than you put in if you eventually flip it.
But I'm sure there are cases where folks have taken a hit when they sold one later on.

Pledge made. In for a penny, in for a pound! Let's see how this goes.

Also, if you like and share the Isotope watch Facebook page you'll get a 10% refund when if the kickstarter meets the required amount.

Since you're a backer @Animal Mother , maybe share this particular thread on the campaign so others know they can discuss the watch here.
Not sure if Kickstarter is cool with it, but we won't know until someone tries it!

Shared on the Kickstarter page. I've also attempted to start a thread in the other place.

Thanks for your comments and support guys.
The project is really well explained (thank you!) but please let me know if you need any other clarification.
We have a three independent reviews on the way so hopefully they will help generate more pledges.
Meanwhile take a look at this video about Johanna Nordblad:




Cheers.
