2015-06-18: Project GMT Ordering/Updates


  • The June/July round will begin June 22nd. To submit your email address for the lottery please see this page.
  • Please note that there will be no July round because the office will be in vacation mode from July 2nd through July 20th. We will do the June and July rounds in June.
  • We have made one significant change. All of the case backs for the Project GMT series will be the same and none will use the Nassau case backs. More details below.

Project Updates:

  • The total quantity of Project GMT watches will be between 350 and 400 pieces. The reason for the range is that it will depend upon how many good cases come from the inspection process.
  • The 2nd stage pre-order will allocate the 350 pieces (This includes the Plankowners and the 2nd stage pre-0rders to date). If we have more than 350 pieces available the last 50 pieces will be sold through the General Ordering process.
  • We will be having more case backs made for the Project GMT so that we will not have to use any Nassau case backs for the production. Everyone will be getting the special case back.
  • QC of the parts is ongoing and we are beginning the process of prepping the cases for assembly. The beginning of assembly is not imminent as of this time because we are working on the dials and the date wheels.

2015-06-09: Project GMT

A quick update:

* We have worked up a couple of ideas for the case back engraving. We will post these as soon as we can for everyone’s review

* I have finished refining the bezel insert design. The changes are subtle improvements over the original posted to the site.

* We will be submitting the parts to a new step, coordinate measurement, to confirm that the parts all work together and to adjust the bezel insert diameter as required to get the best fit. We hope to get this completed later this month.

* Date wheels are currently in production. We are doing them in two batches and doing the QC. The second batch I hope will be in process by July.

2015-05-21: Project 300 Drawings

I just submitted the latest comments/revisions for the case and bracelet drawings. The issues are minor. At this point, assuming no surprises, I  expect that we will be able to sign-off on the drawings and begin the sampling phase in June 2015.

2015-05-13: Project 300 Design Feedback

We received the latest iteration of the technical drawings.

2015-05-13: Project GMT Date wheels

The first batch of date wheels have arrived. I hope to review them next week and check their technical issues before moving onto the aesthetic QC.

2015-05-04: Project GMT May Round
