This dials was made in collaboration with a talented dial maker in Germany, 3dc.ing!


*Shipping estimated in Mar

*Above dial is a sample, and there will be a minor change in the product edition. More on that later.

 

This time, we were a bit late for the Lunar New Year, but here is the Year of the Dragon 2024 limited edition dial! So this dial is limited to 24 pcs! (because it's 20"24"!)

It's the Year of Dragon in some countries, including Japan! So we made this limited Pixel Dragon Dial.

That's the Moon on the left top, and the 12 o'clock is indicated with the Morning Star.

 

On the right bottom is the "3DC x AAA" logo, in a traditional seal-like square shape.

*above is not exactly the final version of the design.

It will also have the serial number engraved on the dial, here:

 
That red numerals there is where the serial number goes, but not with my hand written font, but I made a pixelised font just for this (I used FontStruct.com to make it):

 

Q: Why is it Pixelized? 

A: Because it's cool! :D 

Q: Why is it expensive?

A: This piece is not mass produced. Each dial is made by 3DC in Germany, with a laser machine, coloring, and various polishing equipment. It takes time and effort, and that is what you are paying for! :)

Q: What size is it?

A: 28.5mm diameter, with 2mm diameter hole in the middle.

Q: What material is it?

A: Brass! And it will patina!

Q: Can I prevent patina?

A: Yes but it would change the look. You can apply high gloss or matte varnish!

Q: Are there dial feet?

A: No. But it comes with dial stickers!

Q: Where is it made?

A: Designed in Finland, and made in Germany!

1-Year Manufacturing Defects Warranty

I have been wearing one of the functioning prototypes for almost 6 months. So far, it's functioned with no problems, and I am confident that it would for at least the next 6 months.

The reason I made sure that it's specifically 1-Year warranty for "Manufacturing Defects" is that I believe that most of the people who have never utilized the warranty of a product don't realize that the warranty only covers Manufacturing Defects. Some watch brands offer a longer warranty, such as 5 years or 10 years—but by then, how would you know that your broken watch suffered a manufacturing defect, or normal wear-and-tear? And would you ever be able to convince the brand's customer service that it was indeed a manufacturing defect?

Their warranty doesn't cover wear-and-tear, or user error, and neither does this warranty. But I do think it is important to clarify that it is a warrant for manufacturing defects, instead of just issuing that it is a vaguely worded "warranty" which sounds like something that might cover something more than manufacturing defects. And 1 year is enough time to warrant manufacturing defects.
