For the past year, we have been doing the entire process of its flagship piece, Project 1, from initial sketch all the way to prototyping and manufacturing. Project 1’s task was to develop unique time display complications in-house using the most modern advancements in 3D printing to significantly reduce traditional R&D costs. Barrelhand Project 1 features a 12-point Geneva jump time and a linear cam path minute system, both of which are being developed by myself in San Francisco, California. Barrelhand Project 1 is currently on its 14th prototype iteration and is set to release 100 full-metal replica watches UK in summer 2017.
Some weeks after my article was published, I was contacted by Urwerk telling me they like the article and would be like to meet me in person. They gave me a plane ticket, and before I knew it I was going to Switzerland to hang out with them during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH). It was my dream, and to meet the team of Urwerk was a big honor. What made me most impressed was the warm hospitality I was greeted with during my visit. Both co-founders Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei were very busy during SIHH meeting with investors and clients, yet they managed to take 2-3 hours out of each day simply to meet with me and talk about watches. Their passion and philosophy towards watchmaking inspired and motivated me to start a watch factory of my own.
I’m afraid that’s not the issue if you refer back to the pictures my wife sent you can see that the pin to alter the time won’t got in so I am unable to set the time on the watch which means I am unable to use it and my wife has spent a lot of money with yourself and as I said in one of my emails I have only put the watch on twice and feel a it let down that this has happened .
I will order again if and when both items are available, I don’t want to take the chance that the ladies watch doesn’t become available at all, we wanted a matching pair of replica watches sale.
I have to say this could all have been avoided if your website did not accept orders and take payment for items you don’t really have for sale.
I will send an enquiry as to the stock availability by return to this email in mid October when I return from holiday.
The linear minute system became one of the most challenging mechanisms of the timepiece. This method of actuating the minutes had not been attempted before, to my knowledge, and there was no database or equations to reference. I began testing different curvatures to maximize the traveling distance while minimizing the contact angle. Another issue was assuring that the force remains constant throughout the trajectory as the pin is pushed up and down in the path. Constant force is critical in timekeeping, thus with the use of simple torque calculations I was able to minimize these changes.
