I know I am probably the only guy that LOVES these guys. I have a Clear Epic Case (20$), Silver Aluminum with Aluminum bracelet and just ordered a Black Aluminum with a Black Bracelet.

I have a Series 1 which I switch around with (perfect with the cases) Series 2's do NOT fit.

There website is gone.... :(

That's not a good sign if the website is taken down. Have you tried contacting them by E-mail or phone to see if it's temporary/permanent move?

I'm guessing that the company has gone under....I have been buying up the case/bands at BestBuy as they are on clearance...picked up a clear (engineer) case/band for $20.00 a black/black for $24.00...

Sorry to hear that. Did you try contacting them by phone or E-mail? Likely with all these third party manufacturers, the competition must be fierce, especially if they don't have access to outlets like Amazon or EBay.

I tried calling...disconnected. They were having BIG problems with cheaply made Chinese knockoffs flooding the market.
[doublepost=1490827121][/doublepost]I picked up their Premium Black Aluminum case with black aluminum link bracelet. it was $220.00 when first came out in 2015. I picked up a Amazon return for $83.00.

No doubt exacerbated by sites like MacRumors forums where people are always pointing each other towards cheap knockoffs.
Maybe if they weren't so damn overpriced to begin with - people wouldn't be pointing others to those knockoffs and maybe they would still be in business instead of folding like a cheap tent.

This is a real damn shame.

I have been a Lunatik supporter since the Kickstarter campaign with the iPod nano watch, still strapping my epik Apple Watch case, I was looking forward for a series 2 epik, but now they have gone, what options do I have now, I have big arms, the 42mm AW looks like a woman's watch on me, still get pulled up from people asking what is that watch you're wearing.

:(

Caseology case on amazon gives it some bulk. Not as much as the lunatik but still good.

They're back????

With Apple Watch 5 cases......?

Are they the same original company?
I have ordered the Lunatik Epik Lynk case in Black for my AW5. A bit pricey but judging I was still rocking the Apple Watch 0 with the original Lunatik all these years (got my AW5 in March), gives you an idea about the quality.

Loved their original cases, new ones aren't as big so I couldn't justify the purchase. They were so good before, loved how heavy they were. The new ones are mainly plastic sadly. I've yet to find any "ripoff" designs that work with Apple Watch 5 of the original case, I keep hoping one day i'll run across one. But by then I'll have moved onto the next watch.

Lunatikcase.com is a ripoff just ordered a phone case and had sketchy time getting a case delivered when I finally got the case there was no case packaging just a case wrapped in bubblewrap. Also when inspecting the case there is no branding whatsoever. Filing a dispute today although bank said the way they did this I may be out the money for a fake case.

when people talk price vs chinese knockoff, there is no AW case worth 220. when you price accessories like lunatik or element iphone cases, that’s what happens. i’m sorry, but these premium items are not worth those costs, and they are typically made in china with well over a thousand percent markup. nomad is one company that is rightly priced. lunatik buried themselves.
