My order for my first is in. Am also interested in wrist calendar developments.
I was able to snap some Calendars for 2017 and 2018 on Amazon, cannot find then now, would be great if you could make them indeed ! Especially the commemoratives dates ones
Ps: found those but the ones I got are H shape
Thanks very much! What I think I’ll do is include a small sheet for each band in the Forstner box (adding an instruction video on the site as well) and put a link on our website to where you can get a box of them - they’re like 10 bucks on amazon for a lifetime worth of dots
Does that sound ok? The box for the band isn’t big enough to hold a large sheet of dots.
I agree re the commemorative ones - I think I’ll focus on making those.
Someone else in this thread posted a link to a company who sells current year H shaped calendars. I won’t be able to make and sell them for less than that company already does. Plus those are available now and it would take me a couple months of lead time to make my own. That’s not so much an issue for commemorative calendars.
Thanks to OmegaForums' steel mesh repair log I managed to fix my 1964 JB-Champion... looking forward to a brand new Forstnerbands reissue
Looks great! How much thicker than a vintage JBC?
The re-release is 2mm thick (of course wearing 4mm thick on the overlapping portion), which I believe is similar to the JB Champion but thicker than the old Komfits. Helps make the proportions look better on the Speedmasters given it’s thickness.
Is the curved lug in close line behind the strait? I am having a hard time resisting the preorder as I am waiting for the curved. Of course if you say it’s a while behind, I’ll just have to order both
If all goes according to plan, the horned version will be available for pre order in about a month and ship out in about two-three months from now.
Order 2 of each, the man needs the business.
I’ve added a calendar reminder
Just FYI, by the way, I’m only taking a handful more preorders. I expect that today or tomorrow will be the last day.
The current year calendars are available now from a different seller (who I think was listed in this thread) I’m working on the commemorative ones.
No, I was mentioning that I “calendared” to our in my preorder for the horned lugs. Excited to get my hands on one.
Because after that they will just be regular old orders?
Ha! I definitely misread that - whoops.
Yep! Once we get more stock in
Damn psychology and scarcity factor- I just preordered a strait one.
I’m actually more excited to use this on a couple other watches besides my Speedy- I know, heresy!
And I’m still waiting for Ed McMahon to show up at my door with my big check- he did say I was already a winner.
Looking forward seeing these 2019 versions... which will look very cool on Your Omega Speedmaster and/or Accutron Astronaut wristwatches
Yes we are still waiting. A month is too long. I need mine now
