Getting rid of the logo is brilliant, thats what stopped me buying the Carter Hurd one.

That's what the VULCAN XII is for though :thumbup:

I checked your provided link & the Vulcan XII is a very nice looking watch! I do like the time track on it that doesn’t seem to intrude on the overall design.

Thank you :thumbup:

You will see these on wrists soon, as the VULCAN XII is being delivered later this month.

In checking your provided post for the Jade Dragon, I noticed the Jade Dragon design on the watch box slip cover. Another nice touch & I must say that I am impressed! Wonder if you wish that it had been a larger limited edition run for such a thoughtful, sharp looking design? I have a feeling that 75 or 100 would have sold out quickly as well.

Delmar
Thanks :thumbup:

With the benefit of hindsight, given the number of requests I had, I could have set the number at 500 and still ended up with a reserve list.

It's really hard to judge these things and when I started the Jade Dragon project I wasn't sure if it would even be liked. I referred to this often in my update messages. When it was finished I felt it would sell out within an hour. But under 2 minutes was inconceivable.

I am working on my next CW bespoke, and it will be produced in much larger numbers. It's a much more complex watch though.


P.S. the Phoenix also has a custom bespoke box and manual. All my bespokes are like this.

Maybe CW would do a bespoke in the same way as Studio Underdog.

Accept orders for several hours or days, and supply everyone who.places an order. :D

Beautiful.

Once again, please no 36mm versions and I'm fine as is. :D

Yes, but that's their own CW project rather than a bespoke one, but it would but useful if they could accommodate increased demand for a bespoke project in some cases.

That might not be desirable from the standpoint of those who commission the watches, who might have an interest in keeping numbers low?

I meant really as something CW might be willing to do with the agreement of the bespoke sponsor, if you will. Not mandatory.

It's happening exactly this way very soon, for a friend's bespoke.

My next bespoke is underway, and will have much greater numbers so I hope far fewer will be disappointed.

I am planning on 99 pieces, as I did with the Phoenix, and it will be a high horology piece.

I started on it in February, and formally with CW this month.
