Time for HQ’s update. Great news! The Swiss handwound movements have arrived! Since it’s almost Christmas, let’s do some unboxing 😉
And now on to the actual movements. They look even better in real life than on the countless images we already shared with you.
What a finish! And what great blued screws, and central seconds modification, and Swan Neck Regulator! We can’t stop looking at them… André will receive them soon, so he can micro-adjust them and for safekeeping until assembly in Q1 2017. Thanks Ernst of Switzerland, for supplying SUBDELTA with these absolute stunning movements!
Eddy had blackened a pre-production top dial, but André and he were not quite happy with the end result. It was a bit too shiny, and therefore Eddy has beadblasted another copy. It will be more matte to begin with. Soon, you will see the end result. Finally, some images of this blasted top dial (as you can see, the copies are still tied together!):
Just look at the amount of detail… The laser has cut very precise and left us with very straight corners.
Have a (bead) blast this Christmas everybody. Look after your loved ones, but don’t forget to get really drunk.
