I would do them at a fraction over cost, assembled in Germany by Fricker as well to save me a lot of work if 25 people were interested in them.
I say a fraction over, if I got one on my own wrist from the project, then I would be happy. I am sure Fricker would not use Brass!

They would not be cheap to do though, as the CD-2 lost me money in the end. I made 75, kept back 6 cases for spare which I could sell, made a couple of different bezels and so forth, but on 75 watches in total, I lost money. Partly my own fault however.

Having said that, if there was real interest I could try to make it work for the best possible price.

have to ask Fricker, but I laughed at their Ti price.
Per case, and we are talking some 3 years back, without assembly, no movement, hands dial, etc, 600 Euro per piece. Grade 5
Ti is not expensive, though it does take time to machine, but they are trading on the ''exotic'' label it still seems to have. I pay 400 Euro as it was, but 600 was silly.
I am sure now they want a deal more. Then the cost of everything else, it quickly becomes a watch that is hard to sell, which is why I did not make them in Ti, which was my preferred metal.
