These days we were in Hong Kong, preparing everything to be able to have the functional samples - or in other words, a pre-series, in October-November.
Yes, initially, we planned to have functional samples by early October (or late September), but given the complexity of the watch - beyond the reliable TMI automatic movement, the FROG300 doesn't use any parts that we can find in the current industry and market - it won't be possible, and that's not a bad thing: it's further evidence that we are doing things perfectly right. Furthermore, the good news is that the unit delivery date, April 2024, remains unchanged!!!
HONG KONG in full swing!
Hong Kong is a spectacular region, full of many (some unimaginable) contrasts, and a global economic powerhouse with a massive focus on technology and production. The people are friendly and highly committed, setting an example of organized progress. Among various details, they take climate change and the environment very seriously, something vital to ensure a sustainable future for all of us and a world where living is still possible.
The famous 'carbon footprint' (emissions), to which they are already committed as a society through tangible actions, will also have a strong commitment in our OX® FROG300, especially in production and logistics, as our watches will be born, one by one, in HK!
Proof of that organization and commitment was the Black Rainstorm experienced, in which a simple government announcement caused the entire population to stay in their homes for a day, with stores, businesses, and government buildings closed.
Seeing the streets and avenues deserted on Hong Kong Island, without the usual exaggerated daily hustle and bustle, and under the rain, is a sensation almost unique!
WE ARE ALL OX-OCEANIX®
A big hug to everyone, future owners, friends who have reserved it, and followers who are waiting to hear about availability. We'll update you shortly on how things are going. But to all of you, we want to say: thank you, thanks for believing in us and falling in love, and for being a part of our disruptive and innovative FROG300 in its different finishes: a powerful watch that is OX OCEANIX's first 'big beast,' and it's already making a lot of noise because, undoubtedly, and not just us saying it, it's a game-changer (Next Gen) in the automatic Diver's world, and a supercharged beauty too!
We're excited that everything is going well. Bye bye, see you next week!
