    No worries, I speak Google:

    Delays with fixes to some details due to the Chinese New Year. See how things look in March.

    Thanks. My google fluency is a bit down at the movement due to chronic insomnia. Excited for this to move forward though.

    The word "fur" comes up a lot in google translations of the thread. Does anyone know what it refers to? It seems to be case related in most examples. I think the word is actually "мех", but don't quite get what this means in relation to watches.

    Movement (мех is short for "mechanism" and also means "fur").

    Well, I just sent the deposit for watch #95. I'm not really sure why though, frankly this has got to be one of the ugliest watches I've ever seen...but these projects are fun and they did a great job on the Kirovskie. It is unusual however and I believe somebody would buy it if I hate it.

    LOL. It's quite a bruiser as well, looks like it could give a 1967 a run for it's money. Still, like you said if you don't like it the project watches usually are easy to flip.

    I hope that I like it, almost looks like it could be a Klingon or Vulcan watch.

    EDIT: I just now found these pics, so I take back what I said about it being an ugly watch. I didn't realize how big it would be... if it turns out like this it will look amazing. I'm very excited now!

    Wow! You can kill somebody with that. Was not very convinced but, as an image is worth far more than 1,000 words, I a m very satisfied to be in the project. Keep on!
