Hello together,
after a long time I have had build two new wristwatch again.
With this watches i am able to build a handmade series now.
I would hear with pleasure your opinion by the clock.

The watch is, except the clockwork and the pointers handmade by me.
The caliber is a swiss ETA 2824 automatic.
I have made the case the bottom and the lunette from high-grade steel that never can oxidize and it is completly antimagnetic.
The buttom is 4mm thick.

The prototype of this watch was tested in a pressure chamber till 200bar = 2000m = 6562feet.
The saphirglass is especially made for this watch.
The saphirglass is 5mm thick und is sealed with selfmade teflon seals.
The bezel hold the glass on the place because there is a step in the saphirglass.
The strap is also handmade and is made with specially thick leather (7mm thick)(It is not on the Pictures)
The strap will hold with screwed pins.

What do you think about this two watches ? I would be glad about every comment.

I am sorry for my bad english.

greetings from cologne
Lothar

Kind regards Kelvin

overall i like the design!

what i would change:

no roman numbers, it's to classic compared to the character of the watch

if possible use an other type of hands, these ones are a bit to simple for me

try to angle the sharp edges of the case, i know it gives a sturdy look but maybe you tried a bit to hard and it gives a bit of to much of an unfinished look (and by that a to cheap look IMO)

a 7mm strap would maybe just not be so comfortable, 5mm will do the job also )


but hey .... it's just my opinion and you asked for it ))

best,
Pat

I wholehearted agree with Patrick's comments, especially with chamfering the edges to finish off the case.
