My name is Fidel Chirtes and I am this guy:
Some members remember me, not because I am who I am, but because I am the creator of that thing from my wrist (Boschett WUS DWP, thank you Jim, if it wasn't you it would never happened, thank you Keith for bringing it to life).
Obviously some don't. Don't remember me, I mean, or simply never heard about my existence. Some of them never heard about DWP either, or simply hate it. Now, speaking about DWP, since I started to work on it, or even a little before, I was planning to start my own micro-brand, but being busy and involved in many other projects (car body parts, composites, various machines) I never had the time to do it. I still don't, but at least I made the great decision. Long story short: new company, a name, some tests, contacts established and here I am. I invite you to participate to my journey, my work and my fight. Feel free to come with suggestions, critiques and to share your impression even it is not favourable. I didn't come here for ovations, I came to hear honest opinions from the largest watch community. Questions are also welcome. Let's GO! (BTW, I mentioned something about a name, will be revealed soon.)
Day one, step one: base material, forged carbon. I know, not very original but so is steel and they are still using steel to make watches.
I made it, I have it, still working a little on the "ingredients", but the recipe is almost done.Here is the proof:
The structure of a forged carbon block on microscope. I added a sharp pencil tip and the smallest screwdriver I have to show the magnifying ratio.
The picture was taken here, in a man's cave. Carbon block - bottom left :
For those who are familiar to carbon fiber composite parts, you know how it sounds when you knock it. Like plastic.
Now listen to this, I love it. It sounds like ceramic piece. This is what compression does:
Thank you for your patience and more to come. Cheers, Fidel.
