Happy 4th of July!
We experienced some delays in manufacturing the new Railway Edition. After producing our first prototype we decided to make a few tweaks to the dial, hands, and case. We improved the cathedral shape of the hour hand, slightly reduced the size of the dial and made some improvements to the bezel and crown. Procuring reasonably priced ETA mechanical movements was longer than expected process. All of this caused a delay in our production timelines as we worked to build another set of prototypes.
Once the new batch of watches was produced, we were very pleased with the enhancements we designed and moved forward with parts production. We are pleased to let you all know that we had now completed manufacturing all of our parts and passed all quality control measures. We are awaiting delivery of these parts and will be ready to assemble the watches starting next week. For those who pre-ordered, we very much appreciate your patience. We should have these out to you within a couple of weeks.
We are also extending our Red, White and Blue 20% OFF 4th July sale on the Railway Edition as well. Use code 4July1776 at checkout. This ~ 41mm manual-wind timepiece features single or double sunk enamel dials, Cathedral style blued hands, classic Arabic numerals, railway minutes track, a large crown for easy winding, sapphire crystals on front and back, and a gorgeously decorated hand-wound mechanical movement. You can choose between Swiss ETA6498 decorated or the Chinese SeaGull Ty3620, also decorated. A few of the dials feature the 'red 12' classic marker, prominent in many pocket watches of that time.
