The Countdown Has Begun for the 1858!

I am very happy to announce via this shameless plug of self-promotion for the Oberlin Watch Company, that the 1858 is nearing completion and we are projecting the first models to be complete in the next few weeks!

The pre-order sold out, but there will be some additional pieces available for purchase - our hope is by the end of May, but it could be sooner.

The specifics:
The 1858 is a hand-winding watch. It is stainless steel, with a solid case back to allow for personalized engraving. The movement is made by Seagull, a Chinese manufacturer. The movement is the ST-3600, which is a clone of the ETA 6497.
The watches will be assembled and tested in the United States. The strap that the watches will ship with will be black. The blue strap in the image is strictly for rendering purposes.

The initial production will be for a minimum of 25 pieces with the potential for a larger series, up to 100 pieces. This will be dependent upon the number of preorders received.

Case - stainless steel, 40 mm in diameter, solid case back
Movement - Seagull ST-3600
Strap - black leather with stainless steel folding clasp
Warranty - 1 year
