I am trying something out, that may or may not work and be a new direction. I am making my first buckle on my cnc mill now and will be selling them in a few weeks time.
Once I have mastered 3 or 4 different style of buckles, I am going to make a case in-house.
That is the only way for Aegir Watches to work long term, so now is the time to try it.
I have 6 DLC cases and 7 SS ones, and once they are sold I do not plan to make more until I understand if it will work here or not.
Manufacturing here is costly, so I cant go the route of getting them done locally, but rather I have no choice but to make them myself.
Its a Wabeco 1410. A smaller German mill for smaller work like prototyping.

I got it from the USA actually and it is certainly up to the job, just not as fast as some.
If I can make a case on this and prove to myself I can, then I will straight away add a Haas V3
I've been thinking of buying a mill for a couple years. After I move into a more permanent house next yr, I might take the leap.
