    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    This project tends to get overlooked by the Key West, but here is the latest update from a few days ago.

    2017-02-21: Project 300

    Here is the current status of the Project 300:
    • Case parts have begun to arrive.
    • Bracelet is still in production. The EP (end-pieces) are still in production. We had some comments on the finishing and saw an updated EP last month and sent them our feedback earlier this month.
    • We have finished the review of the non-date dial sample and that should be going into production in March. Right now we are prepping the sample for the catalog photos so that we can finalize the ordering page.
    • We are still reviewing the date version of the Project 300 dial.
    • We will resume the production of the hands next month. We had been testing the supply chain and are comfortable with proceeding with the mass production of the hands. This will take more time than normal since we are sub-contracting with a specialist in lume application to finish the hands. To compensate for this we will start the production of the hands as soon as possible.
    • QC will begin soon and we will start contacting Plankowners to submit their final selections and payments next month. We have to shoot the catalog photos before we can open final selection.

    As always thank you for your patience and support of the Project 300.

    I caved and put an order in, couldn't stay away, I love the pics I've seen. Is the prod version going to have a white date wheel as well? I actually like the look better, but haven't seen this discussed at all and seems the originals were black, so hoping to confirm.

    Thanks for sharing the update. I pre-ordered at the end of December (newbie). Happy to see the progress on the non-date dial, as I plan to order non-date. Eagerly awaiting......

    Caving in and buying an MKII isn't a bad thing..especially when it's a Limited Edition forum project!

    As far a the date wheel, all the pics I've seen have been white. I'm pretty sure that's the final choice but could be wrong. It's been awhile since I've read through the Project 300 design threads. If you haven't already check out MKII's IG page, Bill has some great pics of the 300!!

    You're welcome. Congrats on getting in on your first MKII. I'm going with non date as well.

    While the KW has had most of the attention, the Project 300 will be equally as special. Bill is still putting as much energy, focus, and passion into making the 300 as great as all other MKIIs have been. This one is a sleeper that people will wish they had gotten when it was available.

    Actually, this will be my second MKII. I picked up a Blackwater through a forum sale a couple of years ago. The 300 will be my first MKII built just for me

    Cheers

    I agree. I think it should be considered and would show precision

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    Seriously on the fence about putting a pre-order in for one of these. I missed the Fulcrum and would love a tank-like MKII to take with me everywhere. Not that the Kingston and the like aren't sturdy, but something about the military heritage of the 300 draw me in. I can only wish that bill would have put a circled "Y" on the dial ALA the Hawkinge which had the same. The inside joke here being in the original SM300 royal navy variant they had a circled "T" for Tritium and the same on the JLC pilot watches that inspired Bill to make the Hawkinge. Bill doesn't use Tritium so instead put a circle "Y" on the Hawkinge. Just nitpicking here of course, still a beautiful watch!

    I think this was hotly debated amongst the plank owners at the beginning of this thread.
