    Another Nut Job!

    Thanks a lot Buster, you had big patience during our 6 months of bad luck... the result really satisfy us, the Ergal will surely be our top of the range Watches due to its lightness and great customization potential. Just a couple of additions to your much appreciated review: - compared to the steel M27, those red lugs are differently shaped. This because we wanted to give the M27 the exact proportions of the M24. Now the watch case looks more harmonic.....that's because your "old" M27 had M24 lugs on it (as it was in our original project) - I don't know what you mean with PVD....that reminds me about a coating process.....here instead we had anodic oxidation on the Ergal, which at the end is nothing but aluminium. So actually the case parts are painted, not coated. Hi, All the body parts are crafted in Ergal EN EW 7075: The only exception is the crown, made in aisi 316L stainless. Then, we left the inner case (visible from back) and back ring in rough material finish to leave the engravings visible. the other parts have been anodized in black and red.

    Nuts about this watch...

    Hi guys, some news for you. first of all, I would like to show you a pic we really love, that puts together the Italian and British passion for pure mechanics. We use to say that " ErrediBi is to wathcmaking as Lotus is to automotive"... Below some pics of a M24 with "Genesi" dial: this dial was mounted on the first round of test pressing M24s back in 2003. We have a bunch of those dials left, an it can be mounted as an option as well as those "Gladio" hands. The result is very clean and reflects the original M24 concept at 100%. The back is now fully customizable:

    Hi! now the case back is fully customizable, as you can see on this titanium M27:

    Update after months in which we were persecuted by the blackest bad luck from the constructive point of view, with some photos of pieces ready for assembly, to complete the M24 / M27 range. Given our motto ("Iron Will"), after all we could not give up .... In addition to the 316 stainless steel versions, the CuSn12 bronze, commonly used in industrial applications for sintered bushings, is added: [/ IMG] The type of surface finish is chosen by the customer. Titanium grade 5, the most used alloy in general mechanical applications: [/ IMG] [/ IMG] Also here surface finish is buyer's choice. Finally, Ergal EN AW 7075, an aluminum alloy mainly used for mechanical components in aeronautics and motorcycles: [/ IMG] This material allows a degree of extreme customization, I would dare to say unique in the watch scene: through anodic oxidation the surfaces can be treated by donating any color on the RAL chart, or reproduce patterns of almost any type of surface finish (sandblasting, shot blasting, brushing etc. ). The unique shape of the case (9 parts of which 8 visible from the outside) also allow contrasts that are impossible to obtain on printed case watches (for example, contrast coloured lugs). This specific example, in delivery to a passionate Scottish, will be anodized in shiny black body and red lugs. Last but not least, this is an extreme material for lightness (under 100 g of weight, the steel equivalent for an M27 approaches 190 g). My dream is a small Ergal limited edition anodized in gold and green for Lotus Cars, of which we are hardcore fans. thanks and stay tuned for the assembled pieces in a few days.

    Hi and happy Easter to you all! would like to share a pic of a M27 screw in gr.5 titanium, the donor has been shaped to get the 2671 inside. We're using new materials and sometimes the process to get a good piece is very tough due to the material hardness and the multiple different machining needed. A special greeting to Buster (the thread opener), one of the most patient guy I've ever met (but we're getting very close).

    Hi everyone! a bunch of very special watches are coming in the next weeks! as a preview, see this custom made one off bronze dial studied for an ambidextrous M24:

    Hello everyone! We're currently working on a one off M24. The customer has chosen everything on the watch, with the exception of the mouvement. Case material, finishing, dial made in one off design, custom hands and indices, unique strap and box set. Custom engravings also. We're very happy to give this full customization possibility, these watches have the S serial. We're also waiting for a small lot of bronze M24s and titanium M27s.
