Introducing- Model 3!

With the Model 3, I wanted to bring back the unique styling of the Model 1
but with some changes that many of you asked for, mainly a smaller,
lighter watch. The Model 1 weighed in at almost 200 grams (7 ounces) with
the steel bracelet, the Model 3 meanwhile is 73-90 grams (2.5-3.2 ounces)
depending on the strap and bezel material. The case width also shrunk from
42mm to 40.33mm, and the case thickness from 13.3mm to 10.9mm.

What allowed me to make the Model 3 so much smaller and lighter is using
a quartz movement instead of a mechanical, specifically the Miyota 2035.
Another benefit to using a quartz movement is the reduced cost, the MSRP
on the Model 3’s is about $100 less than the previous two models. The
accuracy on the Miyota 2035 movement is about +/- 20 seconds per month.

A nice plus to a quartz movement is that there is no need to wind the
watch after the mainspring runs out if you don’t wear it for a few days like
on the Models 1 and 2, simply replace the battery on the Model 3 after it
dies every few years.

Another change is the two-piece bezels. Bezels will be available in a
variety of materials- titanium, copper and carbon fiber to begin, other
materials later. Bezels changed out simply by unscrewing the 4 screws.

The water resistance of the Model 3 is 200 meters, the crown and caseback
are screwed in to provide maximum water resistance. Dial lume is Swiss
Superluminova, BGW9 on the 12, 3, 6 and 9 indices, C3 on all the rest and
also on the hour and minute hands.  

Model 3’s will come with two straps, a black rubber like the one that came
with the Model 2 and a brown leather. Both straps will have stonewashed
buckles to match the case finish.

$225 due when watch is ready to ship in 3-4 months.

A few small changes will be made on the final watches:
The leather straps will likely look a bit different than
the ones I have in photos. The screws securing the
bezels will be changed to use Torx instead of Hex. The
OD green dial color will be changed to have slightly
more green in it, currently it’s more brown than green.
