MKII has released the Swiss Made LRRP Milsub Circle-Y watch. The watch is MKII homage to the military issued Rolex reference 5517. The watch is powered by an ETA 2893-2 (Elabore grade) that has been modified by MKII to only display the time. The watch is a basic 3-hand watch with no date complication. 

As mentioned earlier, the LRRP Milsub is a homage to the reference 5517 but with a number of 'improvements'. The watch now comes with a HRV (helium release valve) and a versatile screw-pin strap attachment. The watch comes in at 42.1 mm in diameter and will also be fitted with the double-dome sapphire crystal like the original. 

The watch will also feature the Circle-Y logo instead of the MOD Circle-T (for Tritium) on the dial. The Circle-Y logo is of course important as it is the second initial of MKII's founder and also the first initial of his screen name on watch forums.

The watch will retail for USD 1,150 with a choice of either a rubber or NATO strap. For more information:
