Let the bezel banter battle begin!
Bezel Fawlty? Consult the Manuel and don’t pay Ze Bill.
Which, by a curious coincidence is where my imagination slipped to. Except that I substituted the word Bezel for that of Fawlty's wife Sybil. That way I had the pleasure of hearing Basil answering back to Bezel.

As an aside, Beckie Murray @CW has been brilliant as the project has been three years in the making.

3 years :shock:

Mine is less than 12 months from start to delivery of watches, and I though that was slow. Why so long?
The amount of hoops and approvals that have had to been overcome during this time have been quite a headache. The project finally got the go ahead in Oct and hopefully should go “live” next year. CW’s and, as I mentioned, Beckie Murray’s patience and assistance have been unbelievable. As it happens, it still won’t be “signed off” until they are due to be delivered. Am counting down the days whilst keeping my fingers crossed.
I will obviously post pictures once allowed (though someone on here has seen a photo of the sample watch). Like any watch design it won’t be to everyone’s taste but with 200 being made and selling out in less than a week together with a healthy reserve list it has proved popular to its target audience.
Cheers,
Chris

I now have two potential issues to prepare for:

1. From the watch sceptic: "You realise there's no dial fitted? It's defective why don't you get a complete watch?"
and
2. So that bit there, what does it do and what's it called?

Nice, well done on getting there. :clap:

I had an easier job then, as mine is only 30 watches, not 200.

1. Really? I never noticed!

2. What? Oh, that? I thought everyone knew. In watchmaking circles it’s called a Repoussoir de Charrelage. Basically, in layman’s terms, it stops the Anterior Cthonic Micropatinator from getting out of sync. OK?

is that lume shot a quick snap, or a 5 minute time exposure before you wound the watch?
It's pretty impressive! :D

The lume triangle needs a lot of UV to give a good glow and fades quickly. The bezel goes next but the lume circle and hands glow all night. This version of the lume circle is much better than the C7 Apex ever was.

The colour looks very slightly different on the image, so is it a different lume, or is that caused by the underlying material?

I'm not sure. It could be a different lume or more of the same but I suspect a combination of the two. CW switched to X1 BL C1 some time ago and this, alone< will be a big improvement.
