Thank you Fateh,we did our best
I hope that this model, nickname "Navigator", will be ready by mid-year.
What impresses me is that these are not catalogue cases - no one opened a FullSwing catalogue and said "I'll take that case, with that dial, and those hands...." as we see in so many "affordable" divers today.
While the style of this particular watch isn't my cup of tea, I give a lot of credit to the four guys in Poland who drew up the case design, found a manufacturer to build this unique case design, along with sourcing the dials, hands, crystals, etc.
Best of luck to them and I look forward to seeing what is next on the horizon!
It's not really unique as it borrows heavily from the old Vostok Amphibia...

But, I see this as a nice homage so no problem .

Our next project is a "tought" watch, to be used where U need it. It will implement all that is need to be in use. Gerlach mountain is a VERY good icon to conmemorate it. Solid, rough, tough. Just like our watch. The Gerlach Mountain - sounds good enough for me
Ryeguy : thank you As a wise man said, we keep on walkin' ...
Guys, really - go to our web and Facebook profile, and leave your ideas there. There is always something new to be applied, just as curiousMan did. Our "tought" watch will be called "Gerlach Mountain". Just like that. It was your idea my friend, and we will do it.
Hey IanC I don't get your point but I have an idea: why don't you make your own design, choose the factories, produce your own watch and then start your own thread and report to us how easy it is to make a brand new watch from scratch?Originally Posted by IanC
That way you can report based on FACTS and EXPERIENCE rather then based on theory or other people saying which may or may not be correct. In any case, they have a product to show which is something outstanding and more then 99% of the people can accomplish.

Actually, Ian is trying his best - he made some conceptuals, asks a questions, looks for a paths - we are always pro!
We can even help, if we can.
We are a foundation - a non profit organization that goals to relunch a watchmaking industry in Poland. We all have a jobs, money to spend for living, but we have decided to spend some of it to make something ... just ... cool
We love it.
You can love it.
If someone don't ... well ... it will not kill our fun of making something inspiring.
