+ + START OF PERISCOPE MISSION UPDATE + +
To all civilians,
It’s Friday again. How often have we started our SUBDELTA Periscope Mission Update like this already? Time flies.
Dials & hands
CMDR 13 (our watchmaker Jan Binnendijk) sent a couple morses. Please note the upper dials in the image above are not airbrushed yet, it’s just the rough base metal. You get the idea, right?
The upper dial is not applied on the lower dial in the shot above & below.
The “dark orange” lume clearly has much less light emission than the C1, but it enhances the contrast between the both of them quite nicely we think. Happy! “Lume man” has done a fine job once again. CH is where the good stuff comes from and nice people live 😉
Remie has finalized all straps! Thanks Remie, right on time and do they look stunning, or what? He’ll drop them by @ CMDR 13’s personally in a couple days, thus making sure no enemy will intercept the postman.
Crowns & buckles
CMDR 13 has detailed & beadblasted all crowns and buckles and will deliver them @ the laser engraver in The Hague, NL this very afternoon.
Besides, his sister lives in The Hague, so why not combine it with a coup of tea (or maybe something stronger on the side)? Send her our warmest regards, will you Jan?
To avoid enemy interception, he will not be driving his beat-up BMW this time. Instead, he will mount his blood-red Ducati 750 SS.
He has prepared a plastic mold for the crowns & buckles, so the laser engraver will have no trouble alligning the engravings perfectly at all. Good thinking (again), Jan, and that beadblasting of yours is absolutely fine.
Cases & casebacks
After reading about the customs delay of the movements, CMDR 13 and HQ decided to take a bit extra time to perfect your Ti 5 hardware. It will be sent to the laser engraver next week, but the laser engraver can already start engraving those crowns & buckles, can´t he? All Ti 5 hardware will therefore be back @ CMDR 13’s within 1-2 weeks. Ready for assembly, if those darn movements finally arrive, that is. In the following image, you can see the screw-down casebacks mounted on your cases already. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Godspeed, have a good one & until next week!
