Last moment before this young bachelor became a married man! My little brother @liamsnewaccount ties the knot with the lovely @jonatay - court registration today and the big reception next month. Congratulations on taking this massive step in life!
Dozens of iterations and prototypes to get the signature look perfect. We prototype using CNC milling, 3D printing and hand-finishing. Prototypes are actually made from brass (which is much faster and cheaper to machine) that is then electroplated to get the 'look' of the desired production metal. This particular example was a titanium prototype which we plated using a metal called Ruthenium to get the cool gray look - if you look closely at the drill points on the lugs you can see the brass underneath as the electroplating is only a few microns (1/1000th of a mm) thick.
Traveling through the valley, there's always a drinking fountain nearby with clean fresh water for free. Almost like having Evian on tap. Well that's what I tell myself - I'm probably drinking someone's p*ss 😂🤢But it's Swiss, so it's good p*ss! Cheers! 🥂 #trump #fresh
Attention to detail. When it comes to bringing designs to life, the process is an intense, involving, frustrating, tiring and almost endless cycle of iterations. Everything has to be perfect, from the angle and gradients of chamfers to the precise radius of curved planes, it has to be perfect. I'm obsessive about these things to the point it irritates the people around me 😞 In this photo I'm with our engineering team going over what must be version 10 or 12 of just our first model! #watchdesigner #watchmaker #jewelrydesigner @avantist.ch#engineering 📷 @zacman
