A few weeks ago, one of my sons sent me a pic of his friends #Orient, which he had received for his birthday 2 or 3 days prior. A locker room mishap had shattered the stock crystal, and he was a bit down about it. I told my son I’d swap it for him, his friend would just need to pay my cost for the crystal. When I asked the other Alex @crystaltimeshorology what he had for this watch and explained why I was looking, without prompting he offered a sapphire at no charge. So, our young #WIS in the making is all set, and will, I’m sure, take the necessary precautions to avoid high speed crystal impacts with concrete from now on.

The Mk-V on a black leather strap for my little sister’s wedding last weekend… Not particularly dressy, but it matched. The good news is that my first, and likely only, time officiating a wedding went well. The not so good is that we spent a lot of time preparing, and the Friday I was going to be wrapping up a bunch of projects was obliterated by wedding emergencies. But, back at it today, and there aren’t any more weddings in the near future. That I know of.

Finally getting around to making delrin plugs for a certain limited run of @orionwatches. If I have to mask 1 case & bezel, I usually don’t bother. It gets very time consuming masking before multiple processes for refinishing, so this project is worth the investment in time up front.

Keep your eyes peeled on the Orion and @watches_by_nick feeds for some special releases.

Mk-V shot for the #illumenauts at Joshua Tree, with the Scouts. Will must likely be out of range until Saturday evening. Have a good weekend everyone.

Rendering of the Oban Diver White. 1of 1. 5 total will be sold: 1 black, 1 white, 1 green, 1 pink, 1 bead blasted Stealth model, and that’s it forever. Specs are on the site. I have the cases, I have the AHW Zero DD sapphires, but considering all the other projects that need my attention, these will not be ready until at least February. The Oban Diver will feature AHW Incisor dials, which will be available in other watches in the future.

Thing 1: if you’re awaiting an email response, I’m caught up to the early 20s in October with the ones that don’t require a lengthy response.
Thing 2: As of last week, instead of having some site orders and some direct PayPal orders, it will all go through the site. This will allow clients to choose from secure credit card transaction, PayPal, and Amazon payments. More importantly, automated order status updates can be sent without having to dig through email- which, as noted above, is kind of a mess. It’s a work in progress, but I hope it’s a step toward better keeping clients in the loop without spending all my time at the computer instead of building your watches. If course, since I am my own developer, it’s come at the expense of other work, but it simply had to be done.

Thing 3: the EXTREMELY limited Oban diver. 5 will be sold, and that’s it forever. Specs are on the site. I have the cases, I have the AHW Zero DD sapphires, but considering all the other projects that need my attention, these will not be ready until at least February. Pictured is a test case (not of the 5) with a prototype #carbonFiber dial with indices case from pure lume. I just wanted to use it in something- the Oban Diver will ship with AHW Incisor dials.

This #Seiko #SKX009 AHWSG9-S has been in the works for a very… long… time… and it’s finally just about ready to head home across the pond. The original plan was a sloped ceramic insert, but the blue Stargate dial just didn’t mesh well with the blue of the insert. There were many mock-ups and tests before settling on this bezel/ insert combo. Went back to the #Dagaz insert, modified #Yobokies baby tuna bezel (more than usual), also NE15 #hacking #handwinding #automatic movement, Mercedes hands.

Some #Seiko #SKX007 lug drilling from over the weekend. Goes a lot easier now that I know to 1. always use cutting oil and 2. do not “take it easy” on SS. If you aren’t aggressive enough, it work hardens, and it is more difficult to get through it.

#custom #artificehoroworks mil sandwich dial. The case and bracelet for it has literally been sitting, already blasted with a smooth stage 3S finish, for many months. It’ll need some special day / date parts, and a custom bezel insert to go with this one off dial. A very patient client is waiting up north for this one.
There is a lot going on right now, much right around the corner, but still plenty of projects that need attention, so I’ll hold off on saying much there. I’m literally weeks behind on email, my apologies to any who think I’m just ignoring them. Doesn’t help when a couple unrelated automotive projects pop up that have to be addressed. If you’re waiting on something, please hang in there. My planned watch work schedule for the last 7 days was grenaded, so everything has had to be pushed back.
