This week's update
I feel I've been posting boring updates recently, a side effect to being at my watchmaking desk all the time, so here's something more visual.
The chart below shows the shipping progress for the Type 40.
Very important: don't panic if you don't get your Type 40 within the specified shipping time...customs are notorious for generating unforeseeable delays.
Soon after next week, the original part of the Type 40 project will be completed (!) and I'll move toward making the improved water resistance units (last step before I start working full-time on the Type 46...thank you so much for your patience). At this regard, you can watch the video below that shows the results of my R&D. On the left is an improved Type 40 (stays dry inside) and on the right a regular Type 40 (you can see the water making its way inside after 30 seconds). Some ultra-violet cured glue did the trick!
Very important for remaining units to be shipped: If you moved since you confirmed your shipping address, please let me know!
