Orion prototype teasers!

The red variant.

The red variant.

The Orion prototypes are complete and looking good! Of course, I'll know more once they're in my hands, but right now these teaser photos will have to do! 
Some info about the watch: It'll be around 40mm and have 20mm lug width. It features an AR coated domed sapphire, drilled lugs, screw down crown and 100m WR. The lume is also the white-in-light but icy-blue-in-the-dark BGW9 which is second in total lume brightness to the green C3. It's powered by the venerable automatic (and handwinding, GOTTA wind that crown!) Seiko NH35. It's also cased in 316L steel. As you can see, it's pretty dressy but from the specs it's also gonna be pretty tough. It's the kind of watch that you may wear to a wedding where the chance of getting thrown into the pool is high.

 

At any rate, once the prototypes arrived and receive the OK I'll begin a pre-order, which for simplicity's sake, will most likely be through this website as opposed to Kickstarter. The first run will be pretty limited, I'll also be sure to do some extra limited runs of engraved editions.

I'm really excited to see this begin to come to fruition-and to all the people who've helped me along the way (you know who you are) whether it was sobering talks, design help, or taking me out for a beer so I could vent-thank you so much!

Now for some more pictures!

 

Caseback with simple holes-so it's extra easy to remove (not that you should).
