Update on the Project 300’s status:
* I am reviewing, hopefully for the last time, all of the drawings for the project. I hope to sign-off on them this week or next.
* Case back engraving: I have the details on the case back done (serial number, material, movement type, etc.) At this point we just need to decide what, if any, decorative design will be included on the case back. We are currently preparing a mock-up of a design we like for your review. We hope to get this published in the next few weeks so that it can be included in the first round of the sample parts.
* MOD Sword hands: We have been testing a new supply chain for the hands. We discussed this in the post PoP – Watch Hands Pt. 1. We will be preparing Pt. 2 for release in the next few weeks. However the results were better than we expected and have resulted in the best set of MOD Sword hand that we have ever done. The downside of this process is that it will take a long time (6-12 months) to produce all of the hands we will need for this project because of all of the QC steps and frequent flyer miles that the hands will accumulate. With this in mind we will actually be starting production of the hands ASAP (i.e. before the case samples will be done).
