SUBDELTA ACE Pre-Flight Briefing 11


Dear Future Fliegers and civilians,

Please pay attention to Pre-Flight Briefing 11. Last time, HQ briefed you on the final design. Let’s elaborate on that a bit more, shall we?

Hereunder you find some digital images of the lower and upper dials, as well as a close-up of where the seconds hand “meets” the inner lumed circle.

Finally, let’s take a closer look at the do-it-yourself-kit Jan has ordered to be able to lume the dial and hands of the prototype himself. It’s the good-old Swiss Super-LumiNova BGW9 and boy – is that spot-on, or what?

Yup – it’s a neat little BGW9 kit by RC Tritec of CH!

Jan will receive the lower and upper dials next week, after which he will spray-paint the upper dial in badass matte black and lume all the cavities of the lower dial and hands. After this, he will mount the stunning Isoprog IP13, fit the crystals, mount the crown and Remie’s beautiful olive leather strap… In other words: Jan is very close to presenting our prototype! It’s a matter of weeks now. Kickstarter is within reach so to speak.

For now: please enjoy your missions over the week-end and until soon!

Over & out.
