Stew77....you might like to know this. I am wearing my Kampy today (Monday, July 27), and the all stainless steel model I am wearing and the titanium Kampy shown here by Anders present a few differences....therefore may not result in a duplication if I were to save up for the ti version:

Roman Numbers: in the steel Kampy, they are I, II, X and XI but on the titanium one, they are at VII, VIII, X and XI. I think this is a sweet detail variation.

Minute Hand: unless some reflections on the photo from Anders has affected my study of the photo, the steel Kampy's minute hand is pointed while that of the titanium is square-tipped. Again, a nice detail change.

Lume: I believe the lume on the titanium is superior to that of the steel Kampyhand6.gif

Bigrusty - Thanks for the additional comments here comparing the Steel Kampy to the New Vintage California Titanium design.

I had not even noticed the differences between the Roman Numerals on the models...agree...cool design change.

...I have always been a sucker for sandwhich dial watches and brighter Lume is always a good thing!!

I'm saving my pennies.  Of course working 1500-0300 helps that too, as I have no time to spend money elsewhere :D.

This model may go down as one of the most sought after Dievas model in years to come. Very well done mate! I like the unique dial design and the titanium finish is something else.

Can't wait for mine to arrive early next week! Continue your great work Anders!

Here are pics of my Cali Ti! I apologize for the dark pics it was taken using an SLR. :)

with an EF- 50mm lens.

FliegerTimer 42mm vs 47mm


STOWA Airman LE 40mm vs 47mm


Another Dievas winner IMHO!

Cheers guys!

Very nice Jason...that Vintage California is very sweet indeed!!!Thumbsup3.gif

Nice pics as well....thanks for posting pics that show this piece next to others for a nice frame of reference (have to admit that FliegerTimer on the vintage strap has me drooling as well).

Congrats on the very nice pickup!!!

So, I just received my Dievas Titanium California this afternoon. It is a fantastic looking watch, the sandwich dial is amazing. This is my first Dievas and likely will not be my last. I do have one issue with the piece, which is that it looks fairly small on my wrist. Granted, I do have larger wrists (about 8"), plus my watches do tend to be hefty pieces (usually between 45mm-50mm), but this watch just seems to wear small, at least, smaller than I hoped or anticipated. Please understnad that I'm not knocking the watch or Dievas. The design, build quality and even presentation are first rate, no doubt, but it just may be that this piece wears too small for me. If I do end up returning it, I would like to still have a Dievas watch and therefore, was wondering if anyone who owned a Vintage Kampfschwimmer and also the vintage Ti California could post a side by side picture for me? If nobody has both yet, maybe I could impose on
Anders to do this for me? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


PS - Attached is a wrist photo, I was hoping to get your opinions on the watch. Thanks.
