Note: This is a re-post of an Alberta Watches Kickstarter Update from August 12th, 2015.
It’s been a long time since an update! Things are moving along at a really quick pace, so there is a lot to fill you in on.
The order to the manufacturer was placed early last week, and we are in production, right on schedule!
Even after the first simplification of the rose, the caseback design was still too detailed to laser etch (I think one of you totally called it in the comments, hat's off). The laser was lingering too long on the metal and burning it.
As soon as we figured out, I re-made a version of the rose to be more laser-friendly. It’s etching well, and I am happy to share the result (sorry for the poor image quality):
I actually quite like the new illustration. It has admittedly lost a bit of its hand-drawn vintage feel, but I think the gain in visual clarity (especially on such a small space) is worth it. I really hope you like it.
Delivery date clarification
There has been a little confusion as to the shipping and delivery dates of the watches. I just want to be clear that while we hope to be shipping the watches in late October or early November, delivery itself may take a week or more depending on your location. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
As always, thank you SO MUCH for your continued support,
