Seeing URWERK made a mechanical activity tracker,  I can see them actually releasing this smartwatch.

$17,000 throw away, or a $65 throw away. Hell, I'm tempted to get one of these just so I can wear it to an Apple store.

(I am in no way endorsing this smartwatch, except for trolling purposes)

If you thought a week, or two weeks, is "forever" to wait for a package, try buying stuff from Russia.

Apple- $17,000 for something you and a few other people have. You will be so exclusive!

Me- $17,000 for a watch that nobody else in the world has. Now what were you saying about exclusive watches?

Wall Street analysts expect Apple to sell between two to twelve times the number of all smartwatches sold in 2014 in the next year.

"High-end market" at $350? Umm dude, $350 is one tier above a beater in the watch world. If you compare it to the market it's trying to beat, a Glashütte or Omega should be $350 as well.

Sorry +The Motley Fool, but the smartwatch makers still have no clue when it comes to the watch market. If they did, then last years numbers would be in the billions and not millions. It's not like they haven't have +10 years to get there or anything.

So after a fair bit of discussion and looking at tons of images, I think we nailed what she wants. It's either chromed brass or straight up brass. She really likes the hands and dial design you see. Sadly this specific combination does not exist so I'll be pulling from multiple watches to make it happen. The good thing is the needed parts are all from the same time period. So, while technically not authentic, the finished work will be within the realm of "it could have been" for that for that time period. 

The markers are raised in the originals but for the final they will be recessed with a bevel and lumed in the flat area. Think "bulb in a parabolic reflector". The blue dial may end up being brushed and heat treated to get the color. Never colored brass in this manner so it might be interesting. Need to replace that old mini oven anyway.

A little about the watch itself
The watch is a Vostok  Komandirskie "Wren". This was an official state design for women in the Soviet military at the time. It is one of two series of watches from the same "family", the other being the "Cadet/Junior" which is still in production.

While not standard issue (from what little info there is), it was made available for purchase and sanctioned for use by the military. It uses the same movement and functional design aspects as the larger Komandirskie, and well respected Amphibian. All of which use self sealing engineering and screw down crowns. So even though it is tiny by today's standards (34mm w/o crown) it is a 200m diver's watch. That puts it in a very small club of ladies divers, most of which are "fashion/luxury" watches vs straight up functional designs.

So while the one I am putting together may have never seen the ocean, the design and manufacturer has a history of use in the Soviet Navy. Very few watches can claim any Naval history for women, which makes it one of the reasons I chose this particular watch.


(Yes, I know they are bad shops. The point was to give a feel, and not duplicate 100% what the finished watch will look like.)

Working with Russian/Soviet watches has given me some interesting insights on improving smartwatch case design. It's a shame nobody but the Chinese and Motorola use circular PCBs.

What saddens me is how quickly the manufacturers drop support.

This is two of the three recent additions. The other was the type 33x (Padded round w/ 2 O'Clock crown ) that was lovely to look at but not shown. The movement is in dire straits, so it's already "in process". 

Vostok Komandirskie Generalskie (Export version)
Cal. 2416 Automatic movement
Early 90's

Vostok Komandirskie "Wren"
Cal. 2409A Manual movement
80's

Something to be said for those "ugly" Russian/Soviet movements with 10 year servicing cycles. The 2416 movement is within 2-3s/d, and according to the original owner, never been serviced. The 2409 needs adjustment as it's about 4m/d slow. The amplitude is the 300's, and the beat rate error is under 0.4ms so very good considering.

Sorry for the poorly done photos. All I had was a white sheet, some printer paper, and a 8x10 light box. At least the watches are to scale in relation to each other.

Good, considering.

Ahhh, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!! What most folks would call a "dumb watch" beats smartwatches to the market in chrono, TZ, alarm, and a number of other watch related data syncs. It will even graph the data for you.

Your move wrist tablet smartwatch.

Apple just invented a "prettier", and much more expensive, Galaxy Gear 2, then added NFC. But to call it a luxury watch is an insult, at best.

Price range: $349 to $17,000 (for a smartwatch)


The $17k price is not a joke, $349/399 will get a #basemodel .  Want metal? That will cost you as much as a Longines or Tag Heuer. Or in other words, more than the iPhone 6 you will be using it with.

UPDATED- Sources are now saying $17,000.

+Matthew Lesko added me on G+?

O.o

This is just as odd as when the CEO of a weapons design company did the same on G+ and Linked-In.

He emailed me a few years back when he was looking for a scooter and I was selling one.  Turned out my classic Vespa wouldn't fit the bill as he wanted a little 50cc to cover with question marks!

Watch Project Update;

So here is what the final design will look like for her watch. It has now turned into a His/Hers anniversary project. The third image is what the original "His" watch looks like. I will need to duplicate the dial from the smaller "Hers" dial which needs restoration.

P.S.-  Again, I have not abandon the Radiomir 360 smartwatch project. This just takes precedence over personal projects.

It falls under family. The Radiomir falls under self.
