I couldn’t wait for Tyler and Josh to return – not that I missed them, but I couldn’t wait for them to bring in the parts they manufactured in Germany. They landed in Sydney on Thursday night and first thing Friday morning I pulled out rebelde N00 prototype. It was the day of reckoning – I really wanted to find out whether the screws and stem they manufactured in Germany would actually fit in the watch.
Well, as you may have guessed, they did.
For those of you who are probably not familiar with the entire exercise, it was a matter of accurately measuring the original parts, redesigning them in CAD software and then writing the code for the machine to produce them. A huge step for the smallest watch brand in the world.
It won’t be long now until the rebelde watches assembled in the workshop will come with the label –‘warning, your watch contains Australian engineered and manufactured parts’.
The amount of interest this project is generating definitely exceeds our expectations. In the past 48 hours we made another major step which was totally unexpected. Stay tuned for more.
