First Impressions

As far as Phoibos goes, the Nebula might be their most interesting release yet. While they normally focus on divers, the nebula is more of a sports watch. It’s almost like they took a look at the success of Seiko’s Dress-KX line, and said: “We can do that better.”

It has an interesting mix of elements. You have a horizontal brushing like an Omega Railmaster, combined with a sandwich dial, and lume dots that remind me of some of the older Orients. Plus Phoibos kept this thing relatively thin, and they did so by using a Miyota 9015 movement.

There is a lot to like here, and I’ll try to get a review out soon. So far the only concern I have is with the lume. It looks great, but doesn’t seem to have much staying power. The other thing I noticed is that with the linear gradient, some angles the dial can look very dull. Almost washed out at times. Yet turn it a bit, and the emerald green comes through brilliantly.
