I am starting a new thread that is just continuing on my previous one: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f77/fir...t-1482449.html
We have a new design concept that I want to present, and I would appreciate some comments. So far, some people think that it is excellent and some think it is not so good, but this what we have right now. There is some room for improvements, especially in the dial area - we might need to chose different materials or shapes, so any suggestions are welcome.
Don't look too much at the buckle or strap - they are not fully designed yet. Pushers will be changed too - we might even go for capacitive touch ones.
As you can see, charging port is changed, it is not USB anymore, we will have magnetic charging cable to be attached on the caseback.
The size of the case is still big, but not to big: 46mm width, 58mm lugs to lugs, 15mm of total thickness, 24mm strap width.
Only high quality materials will be used: 316L stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, carbon fiber dial, Italian rubber band or/and a genuine leather strap.
All internal mechanics are sorted out, electronics and batteries too, and the only thing left is to finalize the tube productions process.
As for tube production progress, it is still slow, due to very long lead times for any parts that we order (in months :( ). But, we had a major breakthrough last week and that was the last technical obstacle we had, so now I need to wait for couple of months for the new parts to make a new prototype.
Be patient guys, it is going to happen!
