We are working on a new Ideapixel custom piece. He has been on vacation for a few weeks so he just got back in the shop. We have a general case shape and some ideas which he is working on now. He has the dial art mocked up. The 8 is his logo. I'm deciding if the art should be in superluminova or laser etched on a bare metal dial. I am thinking we might not be able to get the details with lume. Also I think for the hour markers and the numerals were doing a sandwich style with lume underneath. At least we had talked about it but obviously I’ve got to confirm how we’re doing everything. I asked him and am waiting to hear back. He is in Thailand so he is 12 hrs ahead and probably asleep when I'm up.

The art.....so the skulls are on a chopping block as are all of us in my line of work 24/7. The skulls on their sides are fallen fellow officers. The wings are the guardian angels that hopefully fly as fast as I drive. The skull in the center is how we must live....at the front and center in front of the masses. This applies to all first responders and military.
What do you guys think???

A very cool design indeed, Brad! Looking forward to hearing, and seeing more, as this unfolds.:wink:

That is awesome man. Love the symbolism of it all. I have a brother in law that is an Arizona State Trooper and think this could really resonate with him as well. I would be interested to see what kid of case and sizing you have on this and what kind of cost is associated with a super super limited run if that is an option. might be a nice gift for him.

It’s all good Scotty. The eight is the logo of watchmaker. If it were just his version of an eight I may not be as interested but I wanna give him his props and help him get his product branding out there. I may run it by him and see how he would feel about a regular number eight there. I do agree with you

Update: we’re going to do laser etching of the skull set up and Panerai style sandwich dial for the indices and numbers with lume underneath
