    Marine Original - first casepictures !

    Hello everybody,

    Yesterday i received the first unfinished case to make a first quick shoot to show here.
    You will see the proportions and the caseback with it´s 8 parts where the caseopener goes in later.

    The case is not drilled for the strap and it is not polished yet !

    Also the movement is not the original one - of course not !

    But you see what you can see later from the movement - quite a lot !

    I am happy with the shape of the case - it is always a high emotion moment when you see the first step of a case - drawings can´t show you the real feeling and shape.

    Now i know much more that this watch will be a absolutely hit !

    Best regards

    Jörg

    As soon as i have the original movement with Code Geneve, blued screws, screw balance and swan neck regulation i will post - of course ! The same with the hands and the dial (the dial in the watch oin the picture iis the first prototype from the dialfactory to check the technic and position of the hole for the small second and the pins which hold the dial on the movement)

    Thank you very much for the update Jörg.


    Now I really can't wait to see it with the dial and especially the hands!

    Great Stuff, Jörg!

    I am sure this will be one heck of a watch ... the only thing that is keeping me from it (and drawing me to the Marine Auto Date) is the forthcoming handwound Flieger ...
    Cheers,

    Fantastic !

    The caseback is great, you're able to see the whole movement ( which is of some importance for what Mr. Benzinger will do to the movement of my Marine Original ).

    Good to see the progress of the project - thanks for posting the pictures Jörg, keep us updated

    Greets,
    Andreas

    Could you state the lug-tip to lug-tip length of the case? I know the case diameter will be 41mm.
    The only thing holding me back from ordering this watch is that I have small wrists and am uncertain how it will fit me. The lug-tip to lug-tip measurement is usually a good indication.
    Thanks.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.
