EU Proxy: https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/group-buys/gmk-calm-depths_125
ASIA Proxy: https://en.zfrontier.com/products/gmk-calm-depths

GB Ends: January 1st 2019
Estimated Delivery: April 2019, EU will be ahead of NA/Asia as usual due to not having to ship overseas and go through customs.
MOQ's: Base - 250 / Assembly - 100 / Spacebars - 100
Colors: Will be matched against BBQ/GTA/BFR from SP. I'm sending in keys from the original SP SA set for color matching. The result of that will be posted in future updates here. SP SA Reference in broad daylight: https://i.imgur.com/x54eCwM.png

Correct, the exact time on the day depends on the timezone though, best to order by 31st to be safe.


is this keyset waterproof?

At room temperature yes! ABS will suffer from boiling water IIRC

Is it the same alphas color as GMK Nautilus ?

No, much darker alphas on this one.

I just noticed 2.75u convex keys, does this mean the mold has been made now? Also two R3 nav keys is nice, I know the perfect keyboard for this. Will order in a couple of weeks :p

Yes, those molds are being made for Carbon despite its struggle, and Calm Depths will be produced afterwards since we close January 1st 2019 and Carbon ends in a couple days.

Stay tuned for EU/Asian proxies, also revealing tray design soon  ;)

Still don't get what kind of witchery you and kono pulled off in order to get this pricing, but I'm loving it and that's exactly what we need! Already hop in for a base + space kit. Now moving forward, if only this could be a staple for all GMK sets hmmm....

GMK Wavez won't be at least until Q2 I think, with Godspeed, Danger Zone and Oblivion are all scheduled on Q1. Also this price, it's a no brainer to join. Hop in and welcome on board  :thumb:

Don't want to diverge away from the group buy discussion for another keyset. I remember the man Oblotzky himself mentioned GMK at some point in the past, but you could always ask him directly if that's your concern.

GMK Oblivion V2 is scheduled for 2019, SP SA probably not before 2020. But yeah that's all I'm gonna say about this in this topic, please don't derail :)

An Oblotzky set with UK ISO included in the base kit =P, not being run on Massdrop and EU receiving first!? And it's only Ä129! Have I died and gone to heaven? I had never planned on getting same set in different profiles but it looks like I'm going to have to break that rule for this.

If they match JTK Hyperfuse against the SP sets, then there should be quite a difference. This mix would be more along the lines of the first GMK rounds that used stock colors. So it really depends on how 'authentic' you want to go for.

Also just realized that both Calm Depths and Shoko are all very affordable at under $135 for a base kit. It's even more mind blowing given the fact that both sets use custom color which would raise the overall price of the kits. Just about when I'm about to lose hope in an affordable GMK set, they pull this out. Whoever from kono is behind all of this negotiations with GMK certainly didn't miss a day in their business 101 class  :thumb:

One of the current GMK Carbon set's unique features is its R5 bottom row.  But all the Spacebars in its Space kit will be R4C?  I see that some of the Spacekeys are R4, but assumed the unlabeled Spacebars were all R5C.

No, all spacekeys will remain in the standard spacebar shape, which is usually called R4C.

Looks like it. With shipping about the same price from main store and proxy. It is cheaper to order from kono store instead.
