Prototypes arrived and assembled!

The red dial variant of the Orion: 1

Prototypes have arrived and I finished assembling them today! Overall I'm very pleased with them, but a few tweaks are in order-such as adjusting the lug hole position (so straps fit better) and getting brighter lume. Everything is very high quality and feels/looks great in person. The crown screw down action is exceptionally smooth and fun to operate. I'm looking into having bracelets (oyster style) produced, in the meantime, strap suggestions are welcome!

Some specs:

  • 100m WR
  • Domed sapphire crystal w/ blue AR
  • NH35 Movement
  • 20mm lug width
  • 40mm case diameter
  • 49mm lug to lug
  • Drilled lugs
  • Screw down crown

 

Blue dial variant, every 5 minutes there is a blue minute marker. Strap is a placeholder.

There are two dial variants, the red and the blue. On the red dial the WR text is red and all minute markers are white, while on the blue dial there is a blue tick mark every 5 minutes. Each variant has a different tone and look, whether you want something a bit more serious or lighthearted. 

Once prototypes are resolved a pre-order will be going up, stay tuned and be sure to comment with your feelings and share with your friends, it means a lot to me to spread the word and the success of this project is contingent upon it!
