That is looking like the start of a very rugged dive watch. That dial is definitely spot on and should be one to see in person.

Todays pics look good. A very classic, retro-look to the diver. Well done.
Looks good so far, but i was hoping the bracelet links would be more angular think Atrego/Armida not so rounded, but it still looks good :)

Really like that dial, exited to see an assemled prototype. Thanks for the updates!
Love the blocky "toolish" case with the refined dial and bezel. I'm looking forward to my #18!

No new production news to share this week - everything is still nicely on schedule as we wait for the final components of the prototype to be manufactured. We will do our best to catch up on any questions submitted throughout the week:
Any rough timeframe on when balance will need to be paid?
We will send invoices for the balance once the watches are completed, shortly before they ship. We are hoping for early Nov.
Are the bezel numbers “raised” - do the numbers go further out that the bezel?
No, the bezel numbers are lumed and flush with ceramic insert
I see screw heads in the bracelet but also arrows on the underside I assume for pushpins. Are the links screwed or pinned ?
Links are screwed.
Did we lose drilled lugs and the baby winged squid?
While drilled lugs may have been discussed among forum members, they were not part of the design at any stage. However, the end links for this model do allow for easy access and strap changes, while maintaining a more refined aesthetic for the lugs. The lug length and shape do not allow room for drilling where the bar end inserts into the inside of the lug.
The Cthulhu case back art is intact as planned - this case back is a pre-prototype sample of the component w/no engraving
The way the end link and lug ends of the case match up. Anyway to be sure that flows together a bit better?
The current configuration was the best way to achieve the shortest possible lug-to-lug with the chosen bracelet, and its large links. It flows naturally on the wrist, as the end links meet up with the next links at the correct angle.
