Nah. Heard/read too many comments on Helgray's lack of quality. There should be a drop for this Tactico watch, which is similar in design, but superb quality overall (movement, finishing, materials, etc): http://www.tacticowatches.com/styled/styled-2/photos-5/index.html

The Tactico is indeed better quality, but it is also at a different price point. It is at least double in price. Tactico often sells out of their limited edition watches and not likely want to give much of a discount. The helgray is actually very good value and quality for the price point. I have mine since KS launch with no fuss. The finish is good, the movement is solid, the design unique and very attractive in person. Since the seconds hand is on its own dial, you don't notice the jumpy quartz movement, a big plus for me.

You're right. Maybe it wasn't fair to compare. Still, at double the price, you get a limited (numbered) edition, much better materials, an infinitely better movement (Swiss ETA Automatic) very well built. So viewed from that perspective, the Helgray seems overpriced to me.
You say Tactico is not likely to "want to give much of a dicount". That, I don't know. I know there was a drop for the top of the line TC3 (1200 EUR from Tactico) but missed it, so I don't know what the drop price was (hence, how much discount Tactico gave).
