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.

Graphite Black #Cerakote SKX007s can now be configured and ordered on the site (look for Direct Action Black SKX), like Simone’s and Melvin’s cases pictured. Jeff’s yellow one is not an option, and likely won’t be added.
Coated 5.56 cartridges not included.

Since this beast is still hanging around, decided to throw it on an old strap for the day. Available on the site with a black/black Zulu strap, and original soft rubber dive strap with black coated hardware. If you insist, I’ll throw in my old gray strap, too. #Ceramic shrouded SRP655, sniper gray #cerakote for the case, graphite black on the bezel and crown. Custom AHWFB1 sandwich dial with 6:00 date, 3:00 day.
I should have an idea on when all the laser work will be completed today or tomorrow (need to spend some time on the phone with the shop). So that means Pritish, Fred, Simon, Kaz, Riad, Josh, Shannon, Chris, Casey, Cameron, Leon, Scott (almost forgot about the Sinister case back), Ian, and the Mk-V crew Evan, Chad, Matt, Ranjit, and a whole bunch of others with other projects that I cant think of off the top of my head, will be getting some updates here pretty soon.
However- I am leaving on a short trip in 2 days, and as much as I like to think I’ll be able to somehow cram all that email, and wrapping up and shipping some projects before we go in the days ahead, along with packing and whatnot, from experience I know that I’ll have 175 things on my to do list, and check off about 15.
Stay tuned.

Earlier this week, finally finished and prepped around 50-60 files /layouts for the big laser batch that it seems like half my projects are waiting on. Still have a little organizing to do. Some watches require several for dials (the Mk-V dial alone has 4), a case back, bezel insert, crown, clasp, etc, others just need a crown or clasp or whatever. Either way- is been a huge undertaking, really glad it’s done, though it’s well past time, like everything else right now. My goal for this next week, aside from getting a few watches shipped, is replying to all the unanswered email & messages that have piled up.

In the near future, there will be a change in how this all happens, as I list some of the more popular configurations on the site for order. The projects requiring specialized design, parts, inventing things that don’t currently exist, etc, will be handled separately, and differently. More on that TBA.

2 more soon to be listed in the (almost) ready section at http://ift.tt/2rBg29l. Probably tomorrow.
#Seiko SKX007 & SKX009. One with a #ceramic insert & smoked super dome #sapphire, the other with coin edge bezel & standard blue AR double dome. One with matte black heliox dial & snowflake hands, the other with blue #Stargate dial & #6105 style hands. Both with #hacking #handwinding
NH36 movements.

These 3 just reduced 15% off listed prices. If you want something relatively quickly, and well below what it would cost for any of them as a custom spec piece, this is your chance.
