2016-06-17: 30th June End of Financial Year Down Under

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My apologies for another OWC News. But it is end of Financial Year and I would like to end and I thought you may like to know the results of the Odyssey in Quartz.

As I indicated, I have been calculating more accurate pricing for the models as new components come on line. One thing that became obvious is that watches with the ST-1812 are under-priced and this needs rectification. But I will not make any prices rises until next month.

In an effort to whip up some end of financial year madness, I will retain the current pricing (yes on the ST-1812 as well) and I may have some specially priced pieces. As you know all my watches are made to order and shipped in the sequence of order receipt. I have a couple in the drawer. For anyone who orders and pays a USD50.00 deposit, I will hold the prices, although you will get the watch in the New Financial Year.

I have made a small modification in the Puzzle Box and they will be sending me a sample soon…. The Box Chick has left and now I have the Box Man. He seems a nice bloke, she sent me a photo of his Labrador…Dog Man, so he has to be good…ha-ha.

We are moving into winter and regularly wake up to zero degrees. This morning the visibility was 10m if it was a centimetre.  We went to school this morning and the whole school had disappeared into the mist…just like being in Narnia – (yes I keep trying to loose myself in the wardrobe, but nothing works).

Oh yes can you make: 40mm Diver - Sapphire Crystal - SuperLumiNova lumen – Date - Lug holes - Good level of finish.

Thank you for all who responded: there was an overwhelming response of no, quartz is cheap and if you produce a quartz it has to be cheap. I totally understand and respect the voices of the troops. But I was asked and it was an interesting exercise.

But what I am taking away from the exercise is: if …if it happens it will be at the top end of the quartz hierarchy. So there will be no CHF6.00 1 or no jewelled movement as I think this is not a good use for my cases to be a vessel for a cheap engine. Practically (in my mind) the only quartz that is available is the ETA 7 jewel Thermo-compensated. ETA said I could buy a sample. It will be interesting, if nothing else

Amongst the end of year madness, I have 1 (one only) MS-9411 Snowflake Blue/Blue No date, Soprod with some scratches on the back (that I now cannot find, but I did write a note to self with “back scratches”). This I am offering at USD975.00 with the Screw Bars & Torx screwdriver and delivery (VAT etc. for your account).

Friday night, no school tomorrow and if the rain continues no netball…yippee. I am not your average “soccer dad” (is that a term…. or have I opened a whole news Politically Incorrect can of worms) …not really getting off standing in the cold watching sports. Oh…yes a Red soon after I make the Kinderfocken dinner
