Hi all,
Just a quick update on the Artillerist. I hope to have the prototype in my hands for testing in a couple weeks. I will share pictures here.

Best,
Todd

I am leaning towards drilled lugs on the production watches.

That watch is going to be something special. If you decided to dill the lugs and have a brushed finish, it will be something extra special.

Drilled lugs or GTFO.

The Graham Combat watch will have drilled lugs. And lume. And hands.

And the depth rating will let you waterboard a dude for over an hour.

Here are a few quick and (very) dirty pics. I will be having more professional shots taken over the next couple of weeks and will be putting the watch through the paces.

Ohh and BTW, when you purchase the Artillerist, you get a Graham Combat free.

Initial thoughts are that the minute hand could be a wee bit longer and the crown could be bigger.

I agree on both points, particularly the crown.

Also, make sure a thicker nato (like Shiznit) can easily fit between spring bar and case.

Crown looks ok to me, no drilled Lucy's though?
The case looks like a bigger seiko SNK case.
Too bad it's 41mm, I like this one.

I may consider adding another mm to the crown size. The hands are set though.
Drilled lug holes will be happening.

I feel 41mm is the absolute sweet spot for a field watch like this.

Those pictures suck and it still looks great. I can't wait for a DWC Hustler photographer to take a few snap shots of this sweet thing.

Whomever thought of that idea to do an EZM inspired field watch was a smart guy with an eye for design.

It does look great. Hands are fine to me but maybe give us a face on shot.
The crown could indeed be a bitlarger

I typically give my wife the credit for anything remotely "correct" that I do but... she actually doesn't care for this watch. She's a dive watch only kinda girl.

These other watches leap-frogged it in priority. I still want to do the Treudd but it's on the back burner for now.
