Project 38 Special

0

Once again here at Minuteman Watch Co. we are looking at offering a lower priced watch in a smaller size. The past two attempts have not gotten off the ground. This time though based on the response in facebook groups we appear to have a better design.

The idea is to have a watch that will fit both men and women. This watch is more for non watch collector types that still wear watches. Thus we want something that looks really nice but has a reliable Swiss Quartz movement. The current thinking is that we would offer this in 6 versions via a pre sale. Though we might offer more than that via the pre sale then actually produce the 6 most popular versions. Which we are trying to come up with a good way that does not cause issues for you fine folks. The reason we are thinking of doing this is we feel this design looks really good in a lot of colors.

Based on pricing we’ve gotten from suppliers thus far it appears these would pre sell for about $299. This watch would have the most expensive dial we’ve ever offered in a watch. The dial itself will cost us about twice as much as our current models. The reason is that applied markers cost a lot more money especially when they are filled with the type of lume we want to use. This should give us the highest quality appearing watch we’ve offered to date with the best glow in the dark.

We would like to have you help us in picking which colors to offer. Please have a careful look of each of these versions and let us know which 6 version you would most like to see us make. You can let us know by emailing us at minutemanwatch@frontier.com
