Again, thanks to everyone who preordered a watch. We'd like to make a few things clear so there are no disappointmemts or misunderstandings - first, there is no wait list. Any watches not claimed by someone on the preorder list, will be sold at retail. The retail price has not been established yet, but it will be much higher than the preorder price. Sorry, but we made this clear at the beginning.
Please do not post any private messages about the preorder list, to this thread.
In about one month we will have a web site running, and we will sponsor this forum first, then one other. Announcements will always be made here, first. Between the time that the design is finalized and we receive samples, we won't have much to say, and we won't be posting messages, just for the sake of posting. We will answer questions, and we will notify you as we receive updates.
Attached are the latest CAD drawings. There are several mistakes on them - The bezel grooves were enlarged, and we prefer them the way they were before. We really like the crown, and this is the way it will be. The lugs show screw pins, but will be changed to spring bars. I think the CAD designer likes screw pins and tubes better.
The factory can make a dial with green luminous material surrounded by white luminous material. I've never seen this on a watch before, but it will allow us to use more material. I think we'll go back to chrome inlays, though, because we don't want to be the first to do this. The coating won't be as thick, but it will still be sufficient.
The case is actually much taller than it shows in the side view. The height will be around 16mm. Obviously, the 300m/600ft markings are incorrect, unless either the metric or English units of measure have changed within the past few days!
