Re: Latest Watch Design From Hemel
avatar November 14, 2016 09:11AM
Hey everybody, this is where we're at right now with revisions and updates. I started all over with a new factory...they just couldn't seem to grasp what we're trying to do here. My questions for you are:

1. Would you like to see a screw down crown?
2. What lume color do you think I should go with?
3. Do you prefer a brushed or a bead blasted finish?
