After a series of struggles, including an expired travel document, a two hour wait for a one-time travel permit and a mad dash across Shenzhen in a speeding taxi, we finally made it to our manufacturer’s China office.

Time was of the essence, so I didn’t take many photos. I hope you all understand. On the whole, there were no major issues, just some bezels that needed to be cleaned up and one watch with a stiff bezel.

The first batch that passed our initial QC process will arrive in Hong Kong over the weekend. I’ll check them again prior to shipping. We will go to Shenzhen to QC the remaining watches in early January. Well, as soon as I’ve renewed my China travel permit. Yep, it was me! It’s early morning and I’m currently queuing up at my local China Travel Service office to get it ASAP.

Anyway, here are the photos and we are very pleased with how they’ve turned out. The watch in the background of the first photo is our prototype vs the final production in the foreground. The more refined bezel numerals and markers are a marked improvement, in my opinion.

A quick update:

The first batch of watches were delivered to me on Saturday evening and I’ve started final QC. Looks like shipping will begin next week :)

Please bear with me as I have literally hundreds of watches to check and send in the coming weeks.

Another quick update:

I forwarded tracking numbers by email to members whose watches were been shipped yesterday. Please be patient if you haven't received yours yet, as I'm sending watches loosely based on the registration list.

Another China QC session is scheduled for this Sunday, 30th December. Time to continue QC on watches in Hong Kong now. No rest for the wicked :)

I would really like to see a close up of each different version.
Obviously, I haven't followed this project very closely (barely is a better word - long story) and I see versions in the "group photo" that I wasn't aware of.
Looks like another successful project to me.
Well done, Ed and all

Are the yellow and powder blue dials in the picture the Nemo?

I looked at that project too and really liked the powder blue dial. But I liked the overall look of the Emperor a bit more, especially the larger/bolder indices.

Yes, the other watches are from the Nemo series.
