Ed, can you speak a bit louder / write a bit larger, please? Your message seems lost in the noise .....

Perhaps the committee members could be formally introduced in this thread?

The picture shows an automatic, but the description said it's a manual (hand) wind. Is there more than one version of this movement? 14mm total case height seems more in line with an automatic. I wouldn't mind a thinner handwound watch, especially since it has a power reserve indicator. On an automatic that will indicate 'full' most of the time, unless there is a problem with winding efficiency....

Sorry guys, typo. It is an automatic movement but I'll ask if it can be modified to hand winding.

The case will not be made thinner, however, as I'm sure some would prefer the automatic function.

On the other hand automatic movement is also part of your new "smart watch". Having the power reserve indicator you can check your daily performance of move (on foot). So this movement keeps you healthy by winding up your watch.

I would prefer an auto movement especially if that is how it is made originally. And with a 3 day power reserve and meter it will be easy to keep it wound up.

Eagerly anticipating where this design will go. I am loving the layout of the elements on the movement. This watch could be a real stunner. I have a Parnis Portuguese already and I love the idea of a chrono layout without the service costs.

I am guessing that this watch will reflect some IWG Portuguese influence, no? A handsome watch indeed. I am wondering if there are going to be multiple dials will they be variations on the same theme i.e. different colours or will the project go for some dissimilar looks ex. Omega Railmaster XXL influence in the batons or Aqua Terra dial and batons.

Just had a measure up and to give some idea of the size here are a few pictures of a (very busy) dial Citizen AT on my 7,1/4" - 18 cm wrist. The watch is 44 mm dia (+ 2 mm for crown) 13 mm thick , and 50 mm lug to lug . It feels comfortable to wear but i think it will all depend on the lug shape that's chosen . Hope this helps in some way. Remember the lens sometimes makes things look slightly larger but these shots are fairly accurate . DW.:)

The FAQ - Under Project Rules at the start there is a typo that still says "Bundeswehr".

Please state in the FAQ who the committee members perhaps create section 2.2 in the Project Rules for a list of names?

May be a small icon on dial to represent the year of the monkey?
