    A new update just posted:

    2015-07-01: Project 300

    I received the drawings for the last 3 parts I was waiting on. Unfortunately they were not received early enough for me to review before our annual pilgrimage to Taiwan to visit the in-laws (which begins in 12 hours from now). As long as these last three drawings don’t have any issues I should be able to complete a final review of the drawings after I get back on the 20th of July. The goal is to sign-off on the drawings and begin sampling by the beginning of August. We have an idea for the case back design but again we will have to present this after our return.

    A beefier update, just in: 2015-08-11 Project 300

    Update on the Project 300’s status:
    * I am reviewing, hopefully for the last time, all of the drawings for the project. I hope to sign-off on them this week or next.
    * Case back engraving: I have the details on the case back done (serial number, material, movement type, etc.) At this point we just need to decide what, if any, decorative design will be included on the case back. We are currently preparing a mock-up of a design we like for your review. We hope to get this published in the next few weeks so that it can be included in the first round of the sample parts.
    * MOD Sword hands: We have been testing a new supply chain for the hands. We discussed this in the post PoP – Watch Hands Pt. 1. We will be preparing Pt. 2 for release in the next few weeks. However the results were better than we expected and have resulted in the best set of MOD Sword hand that we have ever done. The downside of this process is that it will take a long time (6-12 months) to produce all of the hands we will need for this project because of all of the QC steps and frequent flyer miles that the hands will accumulate. With this in mind we will actually be starting production of the hands ASAP (i.e. before the case samples will be done).

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    Is it possible to become part of the "Plankowner" team for this watch? Or is the only option remaining to wait and hope to be able to pre-order it? I am excited about this watch, and would like to convey my desire for a steel bracelet to be designed/included. I also want to ensure a place in line to purchase one. :)

    Forgive me for not discovering the world of fine watches until 2 years ago. :) But given that, what are my options for getting involved in this project? Is the only option to wait for the pre-order phase?

    Welcome to MKII! You will have a chance at the 2nd Stage Pre-Order. Only one man knows when that will happen, so until then make sure you've submitted your email: Project 300/Notify Me. Also wouldnt hurt to check in from time to time, members are really good about posting new news/updates here on the forum.

    Let me lower the barrier even more .... no need to click; this is what you will read:

    • Waiting on case supplier for feedback on my comments. The comments are regarding small, but important, details that needed to be double checked.
    • I completed the hand designs earlier today and have released the information to the hand manufacturer. Due to the time it will take to get the hour and minute hands made to my standards we have to start now before the cases are begun and slowly build up our inventory.
    • The dial designs are completed and ready to go the manufacturer. We will send these out the same time we approve the case designs and we know that case sampling has been started. I know some of you are curious so I will note that I have completed designs using a big triangle dial and one with the 12 at the, well, 12 o’clock position. Both dials have been designed in date and non-date versions. I will likely do a survey to see if there is enough demand to make all or if I should only make a selection of the dials.
    It's all coming together, slowly but steadily. Like OCM, I consider this excellent news

    Suggestion to Mr, Yao, borrowed from the Kingston playbook: make both dials and put the alternate dial in the Plank-kit

    Both dials. I agree.
