    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    It is interesting to see that Bill uses a different approach between this watch and the Key West. The latter wasn't revealed until the last minute; in fact only after the moment Dietmar got his, we had a chance to see the pepsi dial. Where as the P/300 is out and about even before the final design & components are in place.

    Both approaches appeal to me. Just curious why Bill has chosen this 'route'.

    It's not radically different than some past releases. The LRRP was just a single "head shot" until the first two were delivered. The Kingston made its debut in the flesh at the first meet-up in 2011. I think it all has to do with how well the QC goes on the component parts. Clearly, the 300 QC is ahead of where the Key West was so we're seeing assembled examples pretty early. May also have something to do with the production timetable. Seems perhaps the 300 is ready to go but simply waiting for production slots.

    Far fewer variables with the 300 too. 2 dials- date and non date, but the printing is the same vs 3 dials on the KW. One bezel on the 300 vs 2 for the KW.

    Hopefully this all equals less headache for Master Bill.

    May also have to do with the fact that Bill clearly loves the one he's been wearing while globetrotting, and posting on Instagram. ;)

    Ok, I've succumbed. Do I need another watch, probably not, do I want a project 300, hell yeah. Now it's just a case of saving those pennies and sharpen my trigger finger for the monthly allocation scramble. Game on !
