We are moving forward with the over-case design. The next thing we have to consider is the material used. I would say SS right away but not sure that is the right choice. This is going to be a very large chunk of metal, added to it the weight of the entire TT inside of it. The CNC'er was thinking aluminum. This would keep the price down and weight down. Please let me know what you all think.
One thing to remember about this though. The design is an over-case. Meaning that the Geiger is just a metal shell. The TT's crystal would still be being used. Because of this design, I do not think we can assure a watertight seal between the Geiger case and TT case. I feel the propose of this is to design replica of a prop used in a movie, not to design a dive watch. If we were to do the latter, the price would go way up. Also, the design would have to then have the guts of the TT replaced into the Geiger case which most said they didnt prefer. Does this sound right?
CNC'er has showed me a teaser of where he is at so far and it is really shaping up to be nice. Still has a night or two worth of work to get it right though. Then I will go over the design with a fine tooth comb and see where we stand. I'm excited though.
