2015-09-24: Project 300 Update

A status update on the project:

  • Waiting on case supplier for feedback on my comments. The comments are regarding small, but important, details that needed to be double checked.
  • I completed the hand designs earlier today and have released the information to the hand manufacturer. Due to the time it will take to get the hour and minute hands made to my standards we have to start now before the cases are begun and slowly build up our inventory.
  • The dial designs are completed and ready to go the manufacturer. We will send these out the same time we approve the case designs and we know that case sampling has been started. I know some of you are curious so I will note that I have completed designs using a big triangle dial and one with the 12 at the, well, 12 o’clock position. Both dials have been designed in date and non-date versions. I will likely do a survey to see if there is enough demand to make all or if I should only make a selection of the dials.

2015-09-16: Fax line phase out

Dear Customers,

In the coming weeks we will be phasing out our fax number. There isn’t enough volume to justify keeping the number active. We will see if we can develop a replacement in the mean time.

Nassau Link Now Available

The Nassau replacement link is now available. Sorry for the delay in getting these up on the site and getting the ordering procedure down. Most of the time was spent on trying to find a way to get the S&H costs down to something reasonable for the customers that didn’t qualify for a free link. The best I can do at the moment is standard USPS Priority for our domestic customers. For the international customers I was able to do more for you. I have a “First Class-Uninsured” option available now for $12.50, which is considerably better than the $30+ that USPS Priority Mail International now costs.

I could have done a bit better, and I may be able to do so in few weeks, but I didn’t want to wait any longer to put this part up for ordering. There is a bug in the USPS system that prevents our web store from quoting First Class Mail as an option for US or International customers. If I was able to tap this the S&H could be lower for this link. If I had realized that this was a bug in the USPS system rather than a mistake in setting up the site on my part I would have had this issue fixed sooner.

For returning Mk II customers we will generate coupons so that you can order the part for free and have it shipped for free. For those of you that were on the Nassau Link mailing list we have already sent out coupon codes to those that qualify for the free replacement link. To qualify:

  • A customer wishing to purchase a Nassau link free of charge had to have purchased a Mk II watch directly from Mk II in the past. If you are a Project GMT or Project 300 pre-order customer you also qualify.
  • Submit a ticket to Service & Parts to request a coupon code.
