Hello Kickstarters,

Happy 4th of July!

I am about to spend the rest of the day with my family - so I'll make this update brief.

We want to invite five backers to our release party in Hong Kong this November.

What does this mean to you?  Well, we've added a pledge level just for you.  We call it the COOKOO RELEASE PARTY PACK and here are the details...

NEW UPDATE July 4, 2012 - COOKOO RELEASE PARTY PACK: ONE OF THE FIRST FIVE WATCHES PRODUCED OF EACH COLOR (Black on Black, Brushed Stainless on Black, White, Blue, Pink, and a Kicksterter Edition) directly off the assembly line. You will join us in Hong Kong as we celebrate the release of the COOKOO™ watch. Your trip will include your flight from anywhere in the world, three night's accommodations in Hong Kong, and tickets to the release party with the members of the ConnecteDevice team. We will also include an autographed photo of the founders as you are personally given the watches by Peter. You will also get a video of your watch being packaged on the assembly line so that you can see the whole story behind the watch.

I'm now prepping to fly to Hong Kong to meet with our suppliers, and with other members of the team.  This is a pivotal trip since we'll be testing-out some of the latest COOKOO hardware, apps, and software during my visit!

I'll be watching the close of the project from there, and celebrating with you as we wind-down the final 70 hours.

Thanks to all for your support!

      @pzboyz - the hour and the minute hands will be tritium / luminescent. The second hand will be thin and unobtrusive and will blend somewhat with the background.

      In the picture above, maybe the hour and minute hands should have a small bit of colour to make them easy to see.

      @All - Thanks as always for your support. As the logistics of the party crystalize, we will see what we can do for backers who want to make their way over there themselves. Regarding the pictures, we'll do what we can to post more shots.
      @jomnylee - thanks for your concern. We are fortunate to have good, reliable partners, but your concern is duly noted and all too often, warranted.

      a similar picture (size&angle) would be nice for the stainless steel on black watch, as a prototype already exists for that version
