Project 300 Update

Here is a long overdue update:

  • Non-date dial is ready to be approved for mass production
  • Date dial....I have been reviewing these while I have been in traveling in Taiwan. They look good overall and should be ready for approval for mass production. I will go over them one more time when I get back to the shop.
  • Hands - We have been testing the packaging for the next part of the production process, luminizing. I had hoped to get these off to the vendor in June but a review of a second test batch of hands they did revealed some problems with the packaging that we were providing. The packaging caused a high rate of scrap. We are going back to the type of packaging we used in the first test batch but needed to make improvements to that packaging. The testing of the packaging delayed the shipment of the parts but we should be ready to send the parts out in the next 4-6 weeks.
  • Case parts: Parts have been coming in. The remainder of the batch that is due is expected to ship in September.

I have to apologize in advance if this update raises additional questions I did not anticipate. Normally I have the time to put more thought into these updates but this one was so overdue that it was better to get this posted than to wait until I had more time.

As always thank you for your patience and support!
