    I am notexpecting much movement on the Key West until the Project 300 starts getting delivered. Ihave no problem with that. Project 300 should be the priority at this time.

    Really curious to see what that watch looks like delivered to the MKII faithful.

    Hey, you got your spot in the queue less than a week ago and you're already getting inpatient?
    Didn't the seller tell you that you have to wait at least 9 months before you're allowed to speak up?



    Seriously now, participation in MKII Projects is an exercise in patience. Whenever Bill has news, he will post it promptly. We're anticipating a little more action / traffic / progress once Bill has finalized the Kingston run. I seem to recall something like that was mentioned ages ago, but I'm not perfectly clear on that. Maybe it's just wishful thinking.

    I like to be surprised / proven wrong, but I am not expecting to see Project GMT watches (being delivered) in 2013. Or P300 watches for that matter. Maybe in 2014.
    With that said, welcome aboard, make yourself comfortable and enjoy the ride.

    I have no idea as to when we will get and update, or see any progress, but in all fairness, i would expect that the Project 300 is going to have to get off the ground before the Key West takes off. I didn't realize, but someone posted that the Project 300 folks have had deposits down for 30+ months.

    Happy New Year to everyone.

    While surfing the net over the Holiday I ran across several photos of the GMT watches that Ken Sato put together back in the +/-90's. Some of the details look pretty good.....like the dial colors (black & white), crown size (7 or 8mm), bezel color, hour marker spacing, etc. I really like the look of the acrylic bezel.....is this still a possibility for the Key West?

    I think another nice detail is that the cyclops has at least a 2x or 2.5x magnification, and you can tell just by looking at the numbers. I doubt Bill will go with the acrylic because it is subject to the same drawbacks as the original bakelite bezels from the fifties. If it it not cost prohibitive he may lean towards a sapphire bezel - ideally with lume in the nemerals, but that's up to him.
