2001 holiday season is drawing near, and I'm aware that many of you are
looking forward to stuffing a few stockings with orbichron
clocks. Keep your fingers crossed, and quite possibly there will be
product available in mid November.
few weeks ago we received a first-article orbichron clock from
Hangzhou, China. There are a few tooling issues yet to iron out, and some
long lead-time components to obtain, but overall things are progressing
quite well. Below are some quick and dirty shots of a prototype and
the alternate finishes...note that these are rough as the tooling has not
been polished and hardened as yet, and everything has been handled
extensively. The case will be available in basic black, chrome or
gold plated, and a simulated wood grain that is very similar to
tortoise-shell. The base and faceplate are black-anodized
aluminum. The legending on the faceplate will be silk-screened in
chrome ink (on black) to accent the chrome-plated case and as an option for the black case,
and gold ink to accompany the other case finishes.
