I assume he will be using an ETA movement. I think it is a great looking watch and am excited to read more on his project. I am not too sure about the symbol on the upper part of the dial, but it is his watch. It just seems a little big.
I like the 'puristic' design. But from these pictures, it seems to me as if this watch is pretty high? The bezel looks as if it tops the rest of the watch for another couple of milimeters? No idea, if this will be a handicap for the daily usage...
Is it another version of a Fricker cased tool watch?
It's not ugly, but will it sell among all those other tool watches?
Or is there a hidden gem?, no ETA movement?, something else to make it different to those competitors?
I hope so.
I would like to apologize for my bad English first.
I discover this Thread coincidental and i am glad to see a very honest discussion about my watch.:-!
Maybe i can give you few infos about the Watch.
1.) Waterprotect...I hope about 1000feed. I think the very thick Saphir glas(domed 5mm) will show the Limit because the diameter is very great(38mm). The Saphir Glas is not a standard saphir glas and it is made for this watch only.
2.) The Lunette will be hold from 12 screws he get trough the the Watch bottom and the Watch case. And the Lunette hold the seal above the glas with a step in it. Therefore the Glas is protect against below atmospheric pressure.
3.) Multiple sealed screwed crowne(I think it is also waterprotected if the crowne not in save position but i have still to test it)
4.) The case material is very tough. The matrial is not rusting, acid-proof and high seawater fit.
5.) The Band is leather with kevlar inlays(at the moment i have to test the feasibility )
6.) Movement ETA 2824
7.) Dial is mill without a solid
8.) probably i will build to different watch's with different dials
9.) I think the first Watch will be done around August.
If you have any questions or suggestions i would be very glad if you ask or tell me anything.
