2016-09-27: Project 300 Update

We got word earlier today that the case parts are expected to be completed in Q1 of 2017. The bracelet end-link will be ready for our review before the end of the year. As noted before we do not expect that the bracelet end-link re-design will impact the delivery timetable since we expect to be preoccupied with the QC of the case parts while the bracelets are being manufactured.

In the mean time we will be working on the following:

* Manufacturing and QC’ing the hands we will need for this project

* Reviewing the dial samples and getting the dials into mass production

2016-09-16: Project 300 Update

The Project 300’s case components have entered the mass production phase. The only part that is awaiting approval for mass production is the end-link for the bracelet. As noted earlier we do not anticipate this creating any delays in the delivery timetable.

2016-08-30: Project 300 Update

Here is an update on the Project 300:

  • Most of the case parts have been approved for mass production.
  • The 2 components that are still waiting on our approval are the click spring and the bracelet end-link.
  • We re-designed the bracelet end link after seeing the first round of samples. We will post a pic of both after the new end-link sample has been delivered for our review. We hope that you will agree that the re-design was worth the effort. The bracelet and the case parts can proceed in parallel so the delay in the mass production of the bracelet will not effect the case production. The end-link re-design should not have an significant impact on the overall schedule.

A brief update on the Project 300:

* The second round of dial samples are in and I hope to get these into mass production in the next month or so.

* Part of what is keeping me busy is we are in the final stages of clearing the cases for mass production. Barring any unexpected problems we should have the approval completed by next week.

2016-07-12: Updates

Working on Key West deliveries for the first half of this week. I know updates to these projects are overdue so I will do my best to post some updates within the next week or so.

2016-05-17: Project 300

Brief updates on the project:

  • 2nd round of dial samples are in. We had to go through another round of samples because the background finish of the first batch wasn’t quite right. In addition there were some other details missing from the samples that were detailed in the design. So far the 2nd batch looks good but we still have to study the samples some more.
  • Case samples: The samples are nearing approval. There are still a few details that I have to iron out with the case supplier.
  • Bracelet: We are re-designing the end links. The end links work just fine but based on my own impressions, as well as of several other people that have seen the bracelet in person, it lacked a certain consistency with the case body. The re-design isn’t going to be dramatic but is more of a refinement of the design. Since the bracelet and case body can proceed in parallel processes this shouldn’t significantly effect the timing of the project.
