    "Flame-Blued Hands" Project (retrofit for Laco Pilot Baumuster B)

For now, though, I think its best to concentrate on the task at hand and finalize the design of the project.
    I have started this thread already, but suggest that the project only start after 9 May when the Laco watch is finished. Reinman60 has volunteered to be the project coordinator.

    The idea is that the special edition watch project can go ahead with stock black hands, and that the flame-blued hands (if they can be made available at all) would be purchased separately and retro-fitted by those watch owners who desire them.

    Please keep in mind that the project may also be of interest to those already owning a regular 2824-based Laco Pilot.

    EDIT: frank_be has takennow over the project from reinman60.

    Re: Project-in-waiting: Flame-blued hands (retrofit for Laco Pilot)

    Thank you to Crusader and Reinmann60 for organizing this special side project.

    I am wondering, whether Laco will get the blued hand from the same supplier as Stowa (Universo), which Joerg claimed one of the best hand manufacturer out there. If we want to have flame blued hand, then we should aim for the best

    Re: Project-in-waiting: Flame-blued hands (retrofit for Laco Pilot)

    I just saw this thread after being away from the Forum for several days.
    I think Crusader's point is well taken, and that we shouldn't bother Laco with the details of this project until the specs for the watch have been completely finalized. That way, they can devote their energy to making all of the proposed design changes for the B-Uhr that are currently being discussed over in the Project thread.

    There's no reason that we can't begin a discussion here, however, of what the specs for the blued hands should be, and any observations, ideas, suggestions, etc. would be welcome.

    Also, anybody interested in getting in on this project should indicate their interest in this thread or in a PM to me. The feasibility and final price of this project I would think will depend on the number of sets of hands we eventually order from Laco.

    Thanks...

    John
