              Phabulous photos, Sparky. As always of course.

              Great looking watch by Bremont, too. .... Good subject matter!

                Brilliant . . .


                That is a wonderfully complex case construction. And your photos certainly highlight the superb detailing. I love the grooved PVD midcase against the brushed and polished steel of the lug saddle.

                Be great to see an exploded diagram of how all the parts are assembled.

                    Great pics

                    and great watch Brandon. I love what they did to that watch. Great blend of the hints of the old with the strikingly new.

                            I'm not that cruel. Anyway - posted the photos over on ATG, where John hangs out occasionally too!

                            The blue is lovely tho...

                            Exploded view, as requested. This is pre-HRV, which was added after the initial prototype was developed...

                              Thanks for that Z.

                              I followed the link to ATG. I love to get a chance to study all the technical drawings.

                              I see the lug saddle (or upper case or whatever it's called) is secured to the mid case with just four tiny screws, but the mid case passes right up through the saddle, and it looks like the crystal is mounted therein to the mid case. Very interesting and very sophisticated.

                              It's cool to consider that if the lugs or other parts of the upper case get damaged they can probably be detached and replaced, or simply polished much more readily than would be possible with a one-piece case. Also provides an opportunity for personal customizing - how about a bronze or (gulp) blue PVD on the lugs along with that black lower case?
