New Design update

Post by Graeme » Sat Jan 30, 2016 3:53 am

The other thread is getting long and some are missing the updated design so I am post them here.

This is the updated design with the revised endlinks and without date. The watch will include both metal and our rubber strap so I have added a picture of each.

I will post up another thread regarding pricing etc when I have it all nailed down.

Will you be doing a DLC version?

Hi Chris, not right now, maybe in the future if there is demand.

Put me down for one of each, then.

After having owned a SAS Sea and Air and realizing that both are too big for my wrist.... This makes me happy :love:

Looks great and the size makes this appealing.

Great revision of your design, especially the no date version!

Hi Guys,
This is just a rough drawing, but this is the type of ratcheting clasp I am using, it will have the logo on it. I'm sure you know the one.

I gotta say I love that bracelet. Not sure where you are sourcing but the one that came on the Irreantum Magellan was very similar and I loved it. Was so comfortable.

Just make sure the clasp isn't to long. Resco made a nice bracelet then it came with a stupid clasp that you can't use unless your wrist is bigger than 7.5 inches.

Are you only doing a no date? I know a lot here like it (and it looks good), but a lot of guys want a date on their watch.

I used to be one of those guys that HATED if a watch didn't have a date. (Would not buy if it lacked a date.)

In recent years I've come to enjoy non date watches. Mostly because so many use small movements for the case size and the date wheel ends up being in such a weird spot on the dial.

If a date is used I prefer it at the 6 position.

I've actually come around to no dates. I'm just wondering whether the "average" buyer feels the same.

I'm thinking about doing a limited 100 piece no date for kickstarter and follow up with the date version.

Regarding the bracelet and clasp, I am meeting with the manufacturer in Switzerland next March so I'll be going through all the fine details. Same for the case etc.

I enjoy the symmetry of the dateless dial.

Love it!

I just spotted the new threads this morning and was utterly HORRIFIED at the new ghastly 'onion' hands - but loving the amended version!

As a Mileata owner I can attest to the 9015 movement, and would actually prefer it over ETA now. Brilliant to have a diver with "Irish Made" on the face.

As a shift worker that completes paperwork requiring numerous date entries I would prefer a date, but its not a deal breaker.

The new size will open up SAS to numerous people that didn't have the wrist for the SEA 01.

I'm on the Fence with this clasp. It doesn't seem to flow right with the overall design

+1 and with a smaller wrist I think it would look awkward and fit awkward--essentially all clasp...

Bear in mind that this is just a very rough drawing, I will be looking at it in detail when I'm in Basel in March
