#RoseGold Stargate is up on the site. Don’t plan on making any more of these, but we’ll see.

Email backlog didn’t get much better. Vacation is not, apparently, the perfect time to get caught up on work. I’ll try again tomorrow.

#RoseGold #Seiko #Stargate with matching #Dagaz BB tribute dial and matching #mercedes hands, #custom made aluminum chapter ring, #sapphire crystal with blue AR, rose gold buckle on the strap. 1 assembled & almost ready to go, to be listed soon.
Out of town for a few days, but planning on getting back through my messages and emails this weekend, and I have some updates for a bunch of people since a missing package finally decided to show up.
Crown preorder is up. Once crowns have been received, the price will be raised.

Pre-orders for the new #ArtificeHoroWorks crowns for #Seiko Divers will be live in the next few days. Compatible models include the #SKX007, #Stargate, #SRP777 #Turtle, and more. There are 2 styles, the Bolt Face crown, similar to the Monster/Sumo crown, and the Coin Edge, similar to the stock SKX007 crown. The current aftermarket crowns are simply not good enough for what we’re (the customizing/modding community) doing; our watches deserve better.
The main focus has been strengthening the internals in order to prevent the stems sticking in the compressed position, or the internal interface stripping. These crowns are significantly stronger than the current options for threaded stems, necessary for movement conversions.

AHW crowns have redundant water barriers- one inside the crown for the end of the case tube, and other on the stem housing. They come with 2 small gaskets on the stem housing, but are compatible with the stock SKX gaskets.

More info once they are listed.
As for everything else- had to deal with some things, but I’ll be going back through the inboxes tomorrow. First I need to get an order status from a certain company that deals in destructive light.

The OG #SKX011 in its current form, with Zero DD #sapphire, AHW bolt crown prototype, rose gold #Stargate hands, 12hr ceramic bezel insert courtesy of @dlw.watches and an AHW layout. Damien – Would be cool to get some 12hr Batman inserts, minus the pip, like the latest ones.
I’ll try and go through my messages and email tomorrow. Just getting out from under a very… unpleasant… week and a half of dealing with the fallout of a 16hr reorganize the workspaces day, which still needs to be finished, but since I’m able now, it’s time to push what I can aside, and finish a few things.
Laser engraver is working on workholding solutions for parts. I forget about things like that when I’m trying to come up with realistic timelines on all the engraved parts. Should know more on that in a few days. Yes, I realize this is many months beyond what I had envisioned & stated, and yes, I realize it’s not a satisfactory situation. Maybe there’s a reason these services aren’t commonly offered. Once first run is out of the way, it will be much easier to judge these projects realistically.
Still need to stop by a new prospective printer for PF, Pete, Josh, and Andrew’s dial projects. – – from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2umzUul

The #SNZH55 is a nice size, really exhibits Seiko’s case design philosophy of making watches that fit a large range of wrist sizes.

I’m not quite ready to throw out the computer and Photoshop, but USB-OTG and Pixlr make getting half-decent pictures from the DSLR to the web pretty simple.

#Seiko #SKX007 with seamless #ArtificeHoroWorksZero Double Dome #Sapphire and #Submariner bezel insert in graphite black #cerakote, Gen 1 #Sumo dial.
There should be a whole bunch of projects wrapping up with the engraving situation nearing resolution, and I’ll be updating a bunch of people here soon. And a couple mock ups… And a bunch of other stuff. Tomorrow will be a big day for cleaning & organizing, and a bit of lathe time to make another dial spacer for Matt’s ever present SARG, lug drilling, and just maybe, a smooth bezel for the mohawk case that has been waiting patiently for a year or so.

After one final excruciating round of edits, tweaks, and set up, laser work has been finalized for completion.

Just a few hundred more emails and I’ll be all caught up. I’ll probably hit the other messages via social media this evening, email is still going to take some time.
Finally managed to get this AHWSG9-E posted. Available now on the site under (Almost) Ready to Ship along with a 2 tone SNZH and the ceramic shroud Stealth Scallop in black & gray cerakote.

Not a very productive week, unfortunately. Still a ton of email/messaging and CS to slog through, and assembly on projects I was planning on shipping before the short trip at the end of June, which I’m only now over the effects of. Laser work should be about 10 days out, then there will be plenty of processing on all the various parts before they are ready for installation.
Hope everyone had a good, safe 4th of July, particularly here in the US, as we celebrated Independence Day. Had to be the pepsi SRP779 in red, white, and blue, right?

A few very intense days before led to a rather chaotic trip- camping with my kids and family/friends, but since there are decent amenities nearby, nothing critical was missed. These kinds of activities are always a struggle to get off the ground, because I’m usually trying to finish something, and if that something gets finished, there’s another right behind it that could use some attention.

Back to email and messages tomorrow. I know they’re piled up, but I’ve needed a day or so to recover from the heat, exertion, and drive. It was rather warm in Southern Utah last week, and the smoke in the air from a nearby fire definitely took its toll. Glad to get some relief in the Virgin River. My #Seiko SRP779, with it’s movementI/dial/hands back in place, served well. @crystaltimeshorology found this one for me back when they were first released, and it has Alex’s nice low rise double dome #sapphire that is all business. Stock 4R36 with blue #Stargate
dial, Mohawk m/h hands, and an SRP637 Baby Tuna crown to better match the stock bezel.
