ROCKET is available to pre-order.

Guys that follow my instagram feed have been showing a lot of interest for this recent project and many have expressed an interest in buying one. 

Some time ago I made a proto version of ROCKET and from there discussions started about making a small run of these. The proto was made on my manual lathe and milling machine and I could carry on doing this. However, this method is very labour intensive and with all the best will in the world it would be hard for me to get every single one exactly the same !

So I have had some CAD drawings and renders made and from there have taken quotes from CNC shops. Based on the price I have back, I have set the price of these very close to my original rough price quoted on instagram. These are now £75 each.

ROCKET is manufactured from aluminium and stands 145mm high. It will come to you boxed. Its not based on any rocket design in particular, I just wanted a retro look and feel and hopefully I have achieved this. 

Please look at the images I have supplied here. You will have to use your imagination to get a feel for what the finished product will look like.

I can help with that by supplying a file that allows the Rocket to be viewed in augmented reality. Please email me for the file. In the meantime download eDrawings. This cool app allows you to view the Rocket on your desk and spin it around etc.

Q) What is ROCKET ?

A) Good question. Id just say its a super cool ornament or metal art. It could be a paperweight in your office or imagine it as a bonnet ornament for your classic car :-) 

~

Q) What does it do

A) Sits on your desk looking super cool.

~

Q) Its a lot of money, isn't it?

A ) Not really. I've built it from proto to finished product. Its a unique product and in small numbers. You're paying for CAD drawing, CNC work, fees I incur from my payment gateways, tax mans cut, oh, and after all that I have to make a few quid. Price is based on all these factors. 

~

Q) How many are you making 

A) I would love to sell a 1000 :-) However, I would imagine initial run of 30 and see how they go from there. Its not a limited edition with a set number. 

~

Q) What surface finish will ROCKET have ?

A) I can polish Rocket or grain it to give a smart brushed look. ( Pics to come later ) Purchasers will have the option of either. I can even get them ceramic coated in many colours, though this is not done by myself and would carry aditional cost. 

~

Q) Its not even a product yet, why should I shell out on a product I cannot physically see yet?

A) Please look at the other stuff I have made in the past. You can check out my insta feed @gasgasbones, in this website and also 6b watches.com.  If you are unfamiliar with my work those are a great start point to check out my standards and the uniqueness of my products. 

~

Q) Why are you taking money prior to build ?

A) Many companies take deposits prior manufacture of a product. Lots of people have asked for one but following through with an order is another matter ! Ive been bitten before, people talk the talk, they dont always walk the walk :-) 

~

Q) Whats the lead time ?

A) Not sure, I will need to check. I would imagine around 4 weeks once I hit the GO button. 

~

Q) Where is ROCKET made?

A) ROCKET is designed and manufactured here in Great Britain. 

~

Q) Do you make them ?

A) ROCKET body and fins are CNC made. They will come to me in rough format which I then do some post proccess work like polish and grain and box work.

~

Q) What happens to my money if it doesnt go ahead ?

A) It will go ahead. Im looking for 15-20 ideally for initial order which I should achieve. Any less than that Ill put my own cash to make up the CNC minimum order required.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE CLICK & READ BEFORE ORDERING

!!! IMPORTANT PLEASE READ AND DIGEST !!!

Due to the nature of my opening and closed catch up schedule, it is impossible for me to stick to a rigid lead time. 

Orders typicaly come through in a three day open phase making it impossible for me to then get all those orders out at a specific lead time.

I try my very best to get goods out within a couple of weeks but enevitably lead times do run over.

PLEASE ALLOW FOR AROUND 4 WEEKS 

At checkout there is a tick box. Ticking this box means you have read and understood this lead time.  


 

Depending on what is in front of your order this lead time may fluctuate either way a little so please be aware of this when placing an order. 

Please also note,  for all GGB BESPOKE goods the green IN STOCK tick only means I have materials to make up your order.

 

When I have reached capacity and to reduce backlogs I will close off orders to all bespoke made goods but you will then have the option to be notified when I 're-stock'

 

Lead time does not affect 'off the shelf' items such as Phoenix NATO's and tooling which will go at the next postal run from order date   

Emails : I get a lot of emails which I struggle to keep on top of sometimes. I do try and answer in a timely manner but please give me a nudge again if I do not respond within a few days.

Wrist measuring guide
When measuring the wrist for your wrist size it is important to get this as accurate as you can to help save any issues with fit.

Please measure the wrist with the tape measure touching all the way around the wrist but not pulled too tightly.

Please do not be tempted to add any to the finished length. I build the straps around a metal wrist/Jig that I set to the wrist size you give me.

Lug-to-Lug explained

Simply measure from the centre of one spring bar or tube, across the watch (north to south) to the centre of the other spring bar or tube. This is your Lug-to-Lug measurement.

Strap Adjustment

Each gasgasbones strap is made to your wrist size. I incorporate around 10-15mm of adjustment in each strap for use between warmer and cooler days.
