Usually I immediately discount anything with rose gold particularly cases as it just always strikes me as a ladies option.
That said, the rose gold accent on the 2nd image is really striking.
Particularly the date and seconds windows.
Its the 1st time I've looked at a rose gold watch apart from a Sedna and immediately thought, "I'd wear that!"
That said, the SS version would be my own preference still.
The SS really seems to compliment the Aventurine, it is just a photo I know but I do feel IRL the sparkle in the aventurine would be better complimented by the SS rather than the RG.
I would love to see that RG accenting on perhaps a red quartz stone style dial.

Looks great. I prefer the SS.

I'd for one be very interested, any idea when the kickstarter might launch? Would love to hear more about the movement and rest of the design, feel free to pm!

I think it's a great looking watch. Will the indices on the final product be triangle shape or rectangle? The triangle look much better imho

100% agree, the triangle indices are lovely.

The watch looks awesome. I know next to nothing about watches but I've been on the lookout for a new "good" watch with a budget of around 500, think I'll hang on and see how this project turns out.

Hey, that's fantastic man, fair play dhuit as the man says . That's fascinating that you're the lad from the ad! No need to be so coy about making a few quid either. For the project to succeed and be viable in a business sense then it also needs to be viable for you personally.
But either way, consider me interested and go n-éirí leat a bhuachaill.

I've been promising to keep updates limited to when I've got something interesting to say - right now there's not much to update - the factories are sending on technical drawings, I'm approving design elements. The hope is that the final production samples will be finished before Chinese New Year (Jan 25) when all the factories close.
I'll be flying out to the factories in early January to meet their representatives beforehand too just to inspect the factories/premises/working conditions etc.
If there are interesting updates coming down the pipeline I'll be sure to let us boardsies know. The sólás website won't be updated for a while longer. Intend to start contacting watch review places once I have a firm date for when the review/production samples will be ready by.
If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

I really like the stainless steel version too.
That is a classy looking watch. I'd love to see what the dial looks like in real life.
