First off, I would like to thank Watchuseek and the admins, especially Brad for allowing us to post in this forum regarding our brand.
My name is Eric and I am one co-founder of EMG Watches and Derek (chicolabronse) is the other. We met via the watchuseek affordables forum while discussing ideas for an F71 project watch. We shared some designs, and things snowballed from there.
Our first design, a dual crown GMT, was put on hold because Derek and I lacked the funds to really get anything moving. We then came up with the idea to work with Ed (HKED) to produce a small run of 50 vintage styled chronographs utilizing the 42mm Seagull 1963 Reissue. We were able to make enough through deposits based off our renders to get a prototype started. Currently, the prototype is expected to be complete before the end of the month (MAR2017). At the time of this post, we are at 42 of 50 watches accounted for.
