Looks great! Any idea of the thickness? Some of those chrono>>
avatar September 22, 2016 08:57AM
>> movements can be pretty thick. I'd bet that adding a view back would further increase thickness, in order to maintain water integrity. So I'll echo the need for a steel back. I have a prs-5 which is about 40mm, and the optional view back. It's like a crystal-burger sitting on the wrist.

-10,000 of those screws will fit in a coffee mug. If I were you, I would pack them in fours, slap an exorbitant margin on them, and make sure they are always in stock in the webstore. It's really difficult to idiot-proof watches; I'm amazed at the "civilians" (non-wis) that will take a watch to the jeweler for a strap change.

-anyone ask about a black tachy bezel insert yet? Maybe if the screws are screwed in a little extra, it could immobilize the bezel?

-I love the idea of swappable bezels.
I love the look of the "a" bezel, but the elapsed seconds are redundant to those on the dial chapter. But red triangle/red chrono hand would look awesome.
Wouldn't change a thing about your "b" bezel; it's the choice for those who cross time zones.
And the "c" bezel is a classic for those who prefer a more classic look.
