Anyone else hear from Matt? I sent him a email, twice, asking if he could hold mine till I got home. I shortly received a shipping label after so guessing he didn't get it or I sent it to the wrong address.

Yeah, i’m pretty sure he’s been slammed. Tracking says minen should be here tomorrow. I bet he forgot the swag though. #rainbowdildo

I know he’s still alive, if barely, after starting a company from scratch and delivering initial product in roughly 9 months.

Puts some other ventures into a bit of perspective. Still, the dildo fulfillment is concerning; only time will tell.
Skittles says “taste the rainbow”.

I forgot to ask to see his “reject hands” pile.

Me either. I think it means it will be hand delivered.

No shipping notice here so I guess I'm also getting a "special delivery" too :excited:.

Ed is a bezel action afficianado so if it passes his smell test I'm sure it's solid.

I’m impressed, Brian. The bezel is well machined, nice blasted finished, no missing lume, and nothing rough or sharp. It clicks solidly. No play. At all. :clap:

And the arrow seconds hand is hitting all the marks on mine. :fro:

I picked this one up second hand from Ralph. He said the maker was RedRock Straps https://www.etsy.com/shop/RedRockStraps

It was a light gray canvas that I waxed and darkened to more of an admiralty gray now. :salute:

I can’t believe I missed the launch of ARES - only happened upon it somehow after accidentally tapping on Ed’s thread while driving. So cool!
