I've been working on this one for years! Finally i like it. i REALLY like it. I'd like to know what you guys think. Of course there would be a few color variations but this one would have a white enameled dial with cobalt blue applied markers and blued hands. 42mm case with 300M water resistance and likely the 9015 movement. Its a little more classic looking and more "dressy" than our usual lines but thats what we wanted with this series. Case would likely either be 6061 aluminum or 316L stainless steel. The dial is inspired by an old railroad pocket watch (that's where the "RR" designation comes from) given to me by my great grandfather. We wanted to put a modern spin on it but without losing its classic look.

I dig it, but would prefer a larger case size personally. Would also love to see you guys put out 24 hour watch...

We did 4 models of our Combat B series with 24 hour dials/movements and they were the slowest sellers of all we made. BUT, of course, now that they are all sold we have been getting hammered with requests for them. Figures! lol. So likely we will do another Combat B series with 24 hour scale.

Pardon my ignorance. What is the difference between "blue hands" and "blued hands?" Does making the hands blue involve a process of some kind?

Yes, if you expose steel to a flame for JUST the right amount of time, it turns blue. Too much, and it turns black. One watchmaker I spoke with says that about 75% of the hands they try to blue, end up ruined.

As I recall, those were quartz models. I should have been more specific in that I'd like to see a mechanical. Apologies if any of these B series were mechanical 24 hour movements.

Once there is a 24 hour mechanical movement available i would love to make that. Absolutely! Nothing available right now. We look into that at least twice a year!

Updated render with different hands and white date.

I prefer these hands over the original one.

So, the other makes that have a mechanical 24 hour movement are all in house and the movements themselves are not available to other makers? I could have sworn several makers (Fortis comes to mind) have a mechanical 24 hour movement.

converted ETA 2836-2 can do it but those are not available. If you think of one let me know! A lot of people ask for that.
