@Creator, re: your update. Patience? You are conducting one of the BEST KickStarter projects I have ever had the pleasure of backing! Without a doubt an example to others. I’m a battle scarred KS participant and one after another keel over or turn out to be a scam. So much so it has made me decide to stop with KS all together but for you I’ve made an exception because I collect watches. Kudos!

Hello there, Thank you for new up date!
I'm looking forward to fit your watch in my hand. I have one wish, It's common sense normally, but ...
Previously, when I purchased a watch from another backer - I opened the box that arrived, I have experienced a ridiculous case that there is no main body although there are straps.
It was a thing I was looking forward very much, so a big disappointment lasted for days. I hope that something like this will not happen your shipping.
Also, since I have business stay in the Philippines, it is probable that schedule returning to Japan temporarily will probably be in October, so it will be late to check the real thing.
First look will be in October, please help me if there are any problems at that time. Best regards.

@Zach Whitt: Hi Zach! Thanks for your question, nothing has changed since my last update. As from tomorrow and the next 9 days I will be doing quality of all watches and then packing/shipping starts, hope to have all out between end June and first week July. I do quality control and packing all by myself which is the best way to ensure it gets done properly :) Regards Kyle

The Speciale watches look great even though the Bullhead (love these!) versions have not even been shown. Count me in for (at least) 2!!

@Dave: Hi Dave, that exact meca-quartz watch in the video was the only one out of all of the matte versions that the finish was darker. Its not correct, all other matte watches are correct. You can see it in the photos on the campaign page. Regards Kyle

@Andrew: Hi Andrew, thanks for your questions. Personally not a fan of butterfly clasps, the bracelet has a solid links with a fold over clasp, samples are complete and production going ahead :) Regards Kyle
Andrew
Review from Kickstarter
@creator. Is it too late to ask for a butterfly deployment clasp for the metal bracelets? I think it would be more elegant for the watch and the wearer. I'm not sure by just looking at the pictures what kind of clasp your metal bracelets come.

Survey completed and submitted. I chose blue dial polished case, extra brown leather strap and metal polished/brushed strap. I cant wait to get it. Address has been updated also.

@Mircea: Hi Mircea! Any of the straps with blue in it will work :) Regards Kyle

Review from Kickstarter
So hard to chose now! I chose the polished silver case, brown extra leather strap (as I wear brown leather shoes, brown belt on blue trousers), polished/brushed strap but I cant decide on the face: blue or black. God damn it I like them all! I should have gotten two! :( Blue looks sooooo good.
And I am not even sure about the racing striped strap. What goes well with the blue?

@creatir, thanks for the quick reply. I’ve an all black watch so trying to keep my options open.

Survey submitted successfully. I selected Matte black sandblasted case with black leather and v4 stripe. It looks gorgeous. I have watched all 3 review on YouTube too. :-)

Review from Kickstarter
@Sagar Desai: Hi Sagar, I think a silver matte case watch would look a bit off with a black matte strap. Just my personal opinion. Would prefer a silver matte bracelet :) its your choice!
Sagar Desai
Review from Kickstarter
@creator, I like version B with matte case, do you think the matte black bracelet strap would look good with it? or should I stick with the matte silver bracelet. Please help. I would prefer the black matte bracelet but don't know how it'll look. Thanks.
Straton Watch Co.
Review from Kickstarter
@Andrew: Hi Andrew, your survey answers were received. There are a number of striped straps with blue in it that would go well with the blue watch. You did not see the question regarding a bracelet in your survey because you only backed the reward 1 x watch and leather strap. If you wanted the bracelet you should have chosen the reward 1 x watch + leather strap + bracelet. I will send you a message now that you can respond to if you want to upgrade your order to include the bracelet. Regards Kyle

Thank you Kyle, I decided on blue with polished case. Even my wife thinks it is a gorgeous watch and she is not a watch person. I can not wait for it's arrival.
Andrew
Review from Kickstarter
@creator, I'm not sure how to pm you through the app. I just submitted my survey and i can't find a perfect match for the blue dial on those stripe straps. Also, I didn't find the metal straps on the survey.

Review from Kickstarter
This will become my 19th (or 20th) watch! It ticks all my 'vintage' boxes. It oozes the Seventies styling that I hated in the Eighties but that I now love so much. Keep up the good work, can't wait to receive it.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kyle, I also don't know what racing stripe I should chose. My first choise is to take the all matte case all black (version E quartz), but which racing stripe will look good on this case. If there is no stipe that match good, I will take the version A polished case.
Many thanks for your help!!!
