Quick Post – Engraved Insert Sample

Sample insert engraving looks good, the rest are underway. Up next is light sanding, then polishing, then enamel, more polishing, cut out, and probably more polishing.

Acid washed #SKX007J with custom 0-11 stainless bezel insert, patina dial & hands, milguas style second hand, custom Russian/Roman day wheel, sapphire crystal.

Barely back from the dead with some horrible bug that is making its way through the family, once again lots of status emails to go through. Need to revise pre-prep artwork for dial printing for the PF batch, Harold’s 6309, Andrew’s Infinity dial, Pete’s Seawolf mod, & Matt’s 013. Custom SS bezel insert pieces are due in about 2 weeks.

Check the “Ready to Ship” section of the site.

There was an issue with the mobile version of the site that wouldn’t allow the checkout button to be clicked which has been addressed.
All status@artificehoroworks.com email through last Wednesday has been answered. Cerakote projects scheduled for last week were delayed with some media blasting equipment problems that had to be addressed, but everything from that batch is ready to be coated Monday.

All status@artificehoroworks.com emails for watch orders through last Monday has been answered, though it took a few days with the necessary cross-referencing.
A black & blasted SNZH with ceramic insert will be posted soon, and there is a Sinister SKX007 available with or without custom case back.

Starting 8/13, all email sent to status@artificehoroworks.com (for existing orders only) will be answered each Monday. There may be other days that it happens, but Mondays for sure, so the first batch of email that has come in over the last few days will be addressed 8/13. That will also provide a time to better schedule the work for the week and prioritize the following days. In some cases, the response may be brief, it may not give a specific completion date or contain new information, but there will be a response, one way or another. I had hoped that having someone handle the bulk of communication would allow me to focus on getting things done, but it is clear that it was not an efficient system, and since I’ve lost my assistant to his familial responsibilities, I’ll give this a shot and see how it goes.
As for the watch- this may end up being a standard spec, it turned out great. Might end up going to a stage 3S finish, though. #Seiko #SKX007 based Blasted Mil Pilot with #hacking #handwinding Japan made NH36 movement, #Dagaz smoke super dome #sapphire and matching sloped insert, Dagaz dial and hands, stage I blast.

A couple slightly different #seiko #skx009 based AHWSG9s just about ready to go home. Both received Japan made #hacking #handwinding NH36 movements- One with flat #sapphire crystal and stock M/H hands, but snzf S hand, the other w/ snzf M/H hands, and super dome sapphire and sloped insert. Just about anything looks good with the blue #Stargate dial.
In other news, there are 2 watches for sale on the site in the ready to go section, a #Sinister SKX007 that needs to be redirected due to medical issues, and a Blasted Mil Pilot. Link in profile.

All status inquires for projects underway should now be directed to status@artificehoroworks.com. I am hoping to get a handle on that part of communication at least. I’ll be going back through, looking at custom project requests as I have time. I found several thousand unread emails that had been archived, but I don’t know when I will be able to get to them.

#CitizenWatch #EcoZilla in 2 tone #Cerekote. This watch disappeared once, and had to be recreated. This spec (minus the strap), will make it on to the site as standard option. Anywhere possible, #CerekoteElite formulas will be used in favor of previous options. Great stuff to work with.
Bezel inserts are the next test pieces for engraving. The balance of dials for outstanding Mk-Vs and other custom dials, as well as the last of the outstanding case backs, will be accompanying them.

I’ll be setting up a dedicated order status email, (probably something like status@…) to make it harder for them to slip through the cracks.

#CarbonFiber #Panerai homage with gray lumed sandwich dial, relumed hands, dial shaved to fit the case. The first dial samples from the engraver are in and they’re really clean. Stay tuned.

1.For now, status inquiries should be going to the main email address (contact@artificehoroworks.com). 2. Yes, still waiting on the first dial test runs from the laser engraver and printer.
3. Most of the case backs and friends are in some phase of refinishing.
4. There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make things run more efficiently, to be able to assemble in a space that is at least suggestive of a clean room type environment. Still a bit more to do, but it’s an incredible improvement over the previous arrangement. More to come. – – from Instagram: https://ift.tt/2kjbPlH

Finally… A bunch of engraving is back, ready for processing- light sanding and refinishing. Now there are a bunch of projects that can get wrapped up with case backs, crowns, clasps/buckles. Better would have been dials and bezel inserts, but that will be next.
