    While drilled lugs may have been discussed among forum members, they were not part of the design at any stage.
    Erm ..



    If they can't be done because of the case design then fair enough (ish), but let's not pretend drilled lugs have never been part of the concept.

    That was at the earliest stage of the project and drilled lugs were voted down.

    I am a fan of drilled lugs but this is not a dealbreaker for me.

    I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

    Not a deal-breaker for me either - if the bracelet is nice there's every chance that mine will never come off. But easier to say that drilled lugs were originally in the scope and were dropped through the design process?

    (I got on board after the voting was finished and wasn't aware drilled lugs were no longer part of the design - and not the only one from the sound of it)

    Usually I'd rather have drilled lugs but this watch was purchased to fill a bracelet void for me. I don't have a huge collection but all of them are on various types of straps ( Leather, rubber, NATO, etc) and I wanted a classic dive watch with a bracelet. The ratcheting clasp is a bonus.

    We will send invoices for the balance once the watches are completed, shortly before they ship. We are hoping for early Nov.

    There was not a poll for drilled lugs, but I am sure if there was a poll the majority of us would have went with them. I am hoping whatever spring/lug pins we get they are not flimsy. I wonder if we can get some Seiko-like fat bars, which are just a fraction larger at the pin end, but will require boring/re-drilling the spring holes??? Yes the watch looks great and I am excited, but I may not have locked into the purchase if I had known we are getting springs. I am hard on my watches and they just do no sit locked up in a box. From the start the lugs were drilled on the earlier design. I'm torn, because the watch looks amazing.

    I hate to state the obvious, but you should have read the specs and looked at the renderings. It was clear the lugs weren't drilled.

    I did read them and they were in the original plan and I have been aboard this project since day one. It was not clear to me and some others that they were removed. Drilled lugs were in the original plan and I noticed in another post that the Hexa guys left them out due to esthetics. Look, I am not trying to be difficult, but this took me and others by surprise.
