Olmsted Matte - Production Update #4

Olmsted Matte - Production Update #4

It's getting real. 

We recently received a big box of ceramic coated parts and they're awesome. So rewarding to see that all our hard work creating the dummy covers and working with the supplier over the past year has paid off. Now it's time to put them through quality control and prep for assembly!

Olmsted Matte - Production Update #3

Olmsted Matte - Production Update #3

The cases are getting blasted...

...and by blasted, I mean prepped for coating! 

I received some really fun photos from our California-based ceramic team of the Olmsted Matte parts beginning their journey through their coating process. It's really fun for me (and I hope you!) to see the process unfold. To be honest, the sandblasting part scares the pants off of me.

Olmsted Matte - Production Update #2

Olmsted Matte - Production Update #2

The movements are in!

A quick reminder: as promised, I will send everyone periodic updates via email about the production of the Olmsted Matte. 

These emails will go out only to the folks, like yourself, who’ve purchased the Olmsted Matte and will contain information and photos that the public hasn’t had a chance to see yet. I figure since y’all ordered first then you should get special sneak peak access!

Ok, now for the second update.

The modified, no-date movements are all in the Chicago HQ, passed quality control and are ready for assembly. Modifying movements, heck even getting access to ETA 2892, is a true challenge. But we made it happen. Woohoo!

We're definitely moving along at a fast pace. All the cases and strap hardware are in California being coated, the dials are going through quality control in Switzerland and hand-made leather straps are completed.

Assembly will begin once everything arrives at the HQ and we've had the chance to inspect it all. We will likely begin assembly late December / early January. These are all hand assembled by Nathan and we will ship watches out in batches based on order number. We will go as quickly as possible but everyone’s patience will be much appreciated. 

Ok, that’s all for now. More to come soon!

Have a great one!

Olmsted Matte - Production update!

THANK YOU!

First things first. Thank you. Thank you for the overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of the Olmsted Matte. I’m super pumped about this piece and cannot wait to get it on your wrist.

As promised, I will send everyone periodic updates via email about the production of the Olmsted Matte. It’s a really fun way to stay in touch and watch as we build and assemble your new timepieces.

These emails will go out only to the folks, like yourself, who’ve purchased the Olmsted Matte and will contain information and photos that the public hasn’t had a chance to see yet. I figure since y’all ordered first then you should get special sneak peak access!

Ok, now for the first update. The nylons with matching hardware arrived last week and they are flat out awesome. I mean, seriously. This may be my new preferred way to wear the Olmsted Matte. You’re gonna love it.

We’re still on track to -begin- deliveries in late December. Because these are all hand assembled by Nathan (thanks Nathan!) we expect to deliver watches in batches based on order number. We will go as quickly as possible but everyone’s patience will be much appreciated.

Ok, that’s all for now! Thanks again for your support and trust—it is truly appreciated.

Have a great one!
