Limited (30 Pieces) Edition of The Twelve - Interest List

Post by altapowderdog »

Hi, Everyone,

I wanted to share this limited edition version of The Twelve, which has a non-textured blue sunburst fumé dial. If you want to grab one of the remaining spots, the interest survey is located here: https://www.carterhurd.com/cw

It pairs a fumé dial with the steel case, which in my opinion will make the dial pop even more compared to the fumé on a darker Ti case. It's also the first 40mm The Twelve that I am aware of which does not have a date. The goal was to simplify things, draw more attention to the faceted case bezel, and take the watch a small half-step away from some of the initial Gereld Genta inspiration. It's a unique take on the model, and I've got a whole video describing my thought process and inspiration for the design decisions on the page linked above.

At only 30 pieces, this will be the most limited version of The Twelve that I am aware of. I am gathering an interest list to provide CW. I posted this on reddit yesterday, and already have 21 interested people, so 9 spots left!

I think the base The Twelve is an excellent platform, and while they have a ton of color offerings already, so far they all have fairly similar vibes with the flashy textured dials. I'm very excited to see a different permutation, and to make these renders a reality.

Cheers,

-Carter

Good luck Carter. I am sure you will get the takers for that lovely shade of blue.

Personally, I would just like to see some hour indicators, which i feel would complement the very clean design. :D

Hi, Everyone: Quick update, we have secured our list of 30. If you are seeing this and interested, do still fill out the Form, and you can get on the backup list in case anyone in the first 30 backs out.

Cheers!

Nice, clean dial! The blue gradient works well in this version. Congratulations on filling the queue.
