Type 46 Update

2 likes

Hello collectors,

I feel it has been ages since my last update. I've always tried to make my updates very visual but since I've been working to improve the Type 46 mechanism and mainly sourcing new parts, there is not much new to show at the moment. I've made some important changes to the dual linear movement and I'm very proud how this is transforming the design (the visual appearance of the dial remains unchanged). These changes were made to improve reliability but they also complement what you can observe thru the back window of the watch...I really can't wait to show this off! Teaser: sapphire rods :)

My focus at the moment is to close the design before Christmas so I can get deposits from collectors who reserved a watch and mass order the required parts. Most parts are custom-made and will take about 2 months to manufacture (let alone the actual assembly and unforeseeable variables) so I feel the clock is ticking.

Type 40: I still have 8 watches ready to shipped for which I have not received address confirmation or accelerated shipping payment (if applicable). I've sent many reminders but no replies...at this point I'll therefore simply wait and hold on to the watches until these collectors get in touch with me.

      The type 40 is a really fun watch to wear.
      Best of luck on the type 46 design and development.
