My Snow Flake Project Watch

Well the parts arrived and have finally put everything together. I would not bore you with the put together pictures (because I did not take any :) ). The hands I got earlier and I got the case and dial from another supplier. The case and dial is based on the new Submariner design, thus the case is 41 mm in diameter. It is also fitted with the new 'Ceramic' bezel insert. The supplier had both the blue and black version of the Submariner. I went with the black version.

The watch is powered by the ETA 2836 movement.

The watch. Note the sterile dial. I appreciate that the hour markers are wrong for the Snow Flake design as it should be square and not round. I wanted to get the dial later from another supplier but after putting the watch together, I decided to keep it like that.

A closer view of the dial.

The crown. It is also sterile. I like it. It is big. I am not sure what is the water resistant rating of the watch but I know it has been tested to 6 ATM (I know it is not much) and it has survived a couple of hot shower and also going from a cold room to hot shower to cold room. The watch has also been check, timed, adjusted and water resistant checked by my friendly neighbourhood watch guy.

The case back.

The project watch and the original.

The Tudor 94110 Submariner.

Look out for a review of the project watch and the Tudor soon.


  1. That's really cool. Would you be willing to share your suppliers?
