    Here are some pictures of the prototype watches.
    There will be a few tweaks for the production watches:
    1. Bezel will be thinner (outside closest to case).
    2. Bezel insert lume will be clean and crisp and numeral will be same font size.
    3. Hand set will be a bit thicker and will not have long tails closest to dial center.

    I am generally pleased with where I am and full scale production has commenced with the above changes.

    I welcome your thoughts and opinions and appreciate your input.

    I hope for your sake Todd that the finished product will look a lot better. Edges look bad, bezel looks strange and the lug holes are way too close to the tip of the lugs.

    Lugghålen ser sjukt felplacerade ut, men gillar den feta bezeln, synd att den minskas

    +1 iochmed att bezeln är så fet så särskiljer den klockan från myriader av märken som fantasilöst kopierar Submarinern mer eller mindre rakt av. Ser ingen anledning att minska den alls.

    Thank you to those of you who like the watches for the kind words. I understand it will not be everyone's cup of tea but that's what makes this hobby so great... everyone has different tastes. I will, however, say... not sure there is any resemblance to a Submariner. The Sub was certainly not an inspiration for the Baltic Shield, at all. I am a huge Rolex fan though and owner.

    Please enlighten me. The way I see both watches, which I am looking at in the flesh as I type this by the way, is that the Baltic Shield has:
    Different specification size
    Different case shape
    No crown guards
    No Cyclops
    Different date wheel design and numeral font
    Different crown sizing and design
    Different bezel design
    Different bezel insert design
    Different crystal profile
    Different dial design
    Different hand set design
    Different case back design


    Other than these, the watches are exactly the same.

    I like the watch, perhaps for it´s bit odd bezel. Don´t know. First impression has to sink in. Although, how will you do with those lug holes? What kind of movement and what price are you aiming for?

    To me the looks mirror what it is, a hobby project.

    If most invest hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars into producing 300 watches for their "hobby project", then yes, I agree with you.

    Fixing the lug hole spacing as well for the production pieces. It will be a bit farther from the lug end than it is on these prototype watches.
