Hi everyone.  It's March 2014. Two and a half years since I started this project.  I am about 3/4s done.  Yes over 340 watches have shipped.  This month I completed about 30 total of the 48mm Swiss Mechanical, Open Mechanical, Skeleton, a few Quartz and have about 70 of the 40mm cut out with side holes.    I will post some photos on www.henrywatch.com next week.  The watches are more refined now than ever.  

Thanks for your patience and support.  

Henry


Update #26

Quartz with Date

Hi,  I just posted a nice image of the 48mm Quartz with Date at www.HenryWatch.com .  Production is humming away and we have completed all the machining for the 48mm Quartz with and without date. 200 cases.   I will need a couple more weeks to put them all together.  Survey soon.  The Skeletons and Mechanicals are also being made.  They do take lots more time to build. Sorry to test your patience.   I did receive a very nice comment from a recipient of the 48mm Skeleton. Much appreciated.   

Thanks,

Henry

A brief but important update.  I have been busy making the skeleton watches better.  New photos on www.henrywatch.com  All of the watches will benefit from what I have learned.  My weekends, and evenings at the shop are paying off.  New setups on the lathe and mill and much better better cutting of the stainless steel. Your patience is about to be rewarded.  

Anyone who would like a new case for there existing skeleton may contact me.  I am happy to provide the upgrade without charge.  

Henry (the slowest watchmaker)....

    More of the The Swiss Skeleton Mechanical Watch. I visited the watch mechanism supplier here today (06-07-2011) and he has great news...... I have the possibility of getting another 10 of these........ I received my first sample and snapped these photos. It is a very nice mechanism.......well trimmed and slightly decorated. The photos do not do this justice. The screws are dark blue the wheels are gold colored and the bearing are red...........Retail for this watch will be $3000.00. You can pre-order this at the collectible price of $650. The supply of this mechanism is very, very restricted. I am offering another 10 of this type.

    This is a bit optimistic but......... this level offers a reward of a WHITE GOLD version of the Swiss Mechanical Movement watch. My first nice watch was a Georg Jensen in Stainless and then an 18kt Blancpain. I always wanted both in white gold......
