This is one of the first offerings of a new brand from France, SYE -

After a successful crowdfunding effort, the SYE MOTION Automatic 24 is now ready to meet the general public.  Assembled in Besançon, and shipped around the world.

The case is of stainless steel and measures 40.55 mm in diameter.  The movement is the Miyota 8217, which provides hours, minutes, seconds and a 24 hour indicator.

But for me, one of the most intriguing aspects is the strap system which allows for a quick strap change with the use of a casebook tool.  The look is not entirely dissimilar to the original Omega Dynamic.
