I hope so.

Can the real “third” fox please stand up (or crawl or roll etc).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2ya8kegTT8 - Random Rob is going to do a review of the Starlight apparently (heh no, not a paid review) - the background is interesting in that it was actually a watch I sent on to a reviewer as a way to support his content creation for a small(ish) channel but he apparently knows Rob and sent it on to him to take a look too.

So it is possible to have 50k+ sub channels do free reviews too

Heh - I "squeezed every penny" and will be adding a QR springbar to the Equinox bracelet too - not the dedicated diver attachment - that will use non-QR for "proper diving" but drilled lugs will help you change out of those too... will allow you to swap the bracelet easily to say a salmon strap if you want to have your diver on a dressier strap instead...

Those bottom lines rise with every extra "little" feature I add - but I want to make this as awesome as possible ("for the price" - I know Fitz hates that phrase ha - but Sólás can't charge 4-8k for a diver with "no" compromises)... the QR bracelet is one less compromise though

Those lads have a great Discord network and send watches “on tour”. Some of the best unbiased watch reviews around. Just normal guys buying affordable/entry luxury watches without notions. Random Rob, Bruce Williams, DougFNJ, SaleenDriver etc. Definitely worth subs and catching the weekly live chats.

Latest update - over the next while I'll be relatively quiet I think as I get on with watch work - see you all on the other side

Well done. While I never publically said it, I was slightly fearful for you incase your factory partner would mess you around. 500 custom movements I suspect is a very small run for them.

It’s a good day for Solas!

Delighted to see things come to fruition Diyu. Long road and a lot of work clearly put in but you've done an incredible job.

Well done Diyu and best of luck putting the final part together, you have everything at hand now so don't be putting yourself under pressure getting them out an extra day or two won't matter now. We all look forward to the finished product.
