    Thanks! Well, I won't show the insides of the tube, since the construction itself is part the patent that I am about to file.

    I am working with some case manufacturers right now, tying to agree on all details and to get a prototype. It is a long process, with many changes along the way. Big challenge here is also the inside construction of the case, where all should fit - the tube, batteries, electronics and charging port, but it is all sorted now.

    It is great to see this concept coming along. I followed the original thread and hoped the tech difficulties could be overcome. Kudos for perseverance. I love the design, it modern without being quirky. Dimensions are large but it's a small trade off for such an interesting and unique watch. This is watch I would love to have in the collection. I shall be awaiting updates eagerly. Well done.

    Good to see everything is coming along Vlad. I like the new design but I think I liked the previous one more, more contrasting lines and slightly less round. Any new updates since march ? I'm looking forward to more info :D

    Actually, you are right, I had a problem with that design. We developed it for too long, trying to compensate the size and about 3 weeks ago I rejected it completely and started all over again.

    I downsized the tube a bit and batteries too to be able to have a better design. This time we went for lugless design, no bezel and 4 crystals instead of one, no dial too. I will post some renders here during the week.

    Regards,
    Vladimir

    We are working on couple of different concepts of the case. At one point we went maybe too far and came up with this retro-future model. What do you think guys? It is in development, we need to work on many details. But please share your thoughts.

    New dimensions: 43 x 51 x 14mm

    Very cool! Neil Armstrong would have worn this to the moon.

    i can't speak for all but it appears the second design version isn't nearly as nice and as practical looking as the first. you're already dealing with unusual, why make it more than that. you have to focus on what people would be willing to wear. not some art object or space odyssey watch.
