I understand that there were just two watches that were not even shipped..... Yours and mine......... Is there anything like a" watch waiting brother "?Any ideas on when the fixed FOKAs are shipping out? I never even got to see mine.....
Ps. I would consider just renaming this thread "part 2" instead of "new".

Haha just our luck eh? As long as I get it soon, it'll be all good. We also now don't have to deal with shipping it back, so not too shabby.I understand that there were just two watches that were not even shipped..... Yours and mine......... Is there anything like a" watch waiting brother "?

All good bro. Here on tapatalk, its really easy. So I was just curious.....I don't think I can edit the thread title.
Feel free to make a mod request, or perhaps someone will do it if they read the thread.
I feel for you guys waiting on your Foka repairs, though that's a kind of good problem to have (Like us gentlefolk waiting on our 303s) . ;-)
I'd also like to know?Link to original thread here:
I'll start this one off by simply asking about a status update for the 303 project.
Actually, we have two "tank" watches in mind right now. One is a very classic design with its roots back in the '30 of XX century again. There is a great story to be told - it is a story of major Rudolf Gundlach, the designer of rotary periscope. This item, patented back in 1936, was granted later to the Vickers-Armstrong, becoming Vickers Tank Periscope Mk. IV, that equipped functionally ALL british tanks, ie. Cromwell, Crusader, Churchill and Valentine ... what more, as the periscopes were sized by the Axis forces - Romania, and Soviet forces, and becamed Sovied MK-4 periscope used in T-70 and T-34 tanks! Same time, it was copied in all Axis designes, that included tanks and APCs made in Romania, Finland, Italy, Japan (!) and Hungary ... Last, but not least, technology transferred by the Vickers-Armstrong to the USA became a M6 periscope, used in Stuart's and Sherman's ! This all camed out from the 1936 patent registered by mjr. Gundlach - a Pole who is barely known even in Poland.... :-( So we are about to change that ;-)Will the 303 crown still have red lines painted on it?
I think 42mm is ideal for a watch; however, a 44mm watch from G. Gerlach (like the pilot watch) would be great. Perhaps the Tank watch? (Just a suggestion...;-))
