“Craftsman Soul”San Martin Original Design Limited Edition Automatic Mechanical SN0010-G
11.29.2022 | San Martin Watch Authorized Store | Blog

Hello everyone, today I would like to introduce to you the watch SN0010 with the longest production cycle so far, named "Craftsman Soul". The design of this watch started as early as 2020, and the purchase order was officially placed on December 8, 2020. So far, most of the accessories have been completed and some of the designs have been changed, so it will take some time before it can be officially shipped.

I have been making watches for more than 6 years now, and I have to feel that time passes quickly. There are different understandings at different stages. Generally speaking, I still want to make some original works that I am satisfied with. Design ability has always been a short board. It is definitely not feasible to follow the design route of Tianma Xingkong. Simply combine traditional styles with good polishing techniques to start, so I am a bit paranoid about making original styles and want to make more complicated ones, forcibly combining good craftsmanship into it. So many cousins said that I designed too aggressively. Hope it's not too hard this time!

This time the SN0010 is square as a whole, strictly speaking it is octagonal (some original square titanium and copper shells were made as early as 17 years ago), and the square shell should first be associated with Bell & Ross, which is different from Bell & Ross. The curved connection around, SN0010 is more difficult to do straight line connection with a more tough style, the case is divided into four pieces as a whole, diving timing bezel + patch, face cover, middle case and bottom cover; first of all, the bottom cover, The octagonal shape is straightened and sanded on the front, and the eight inclined surfaces are polished. The straight sand on the ear surface corresponds to the straight sand on the strap; the bottom cover is also made of straight sand on the bottom plane, the octagonal shape is used for polishing, and the straight body echoes the case. The bevel smooth surface is much larger than the surface cover, and it is particularly difficult to ensure that each surface is clearly connected under the premise of grinding the smooth surface thoroughly. Few bottom cover manufacturers can meet the requirements, so the bottom cover is also made by the watch case factory. of. In order to echo the overall tough style, the cover is fixed with 4 hexagon socket screws on the top of the cover, and the connecting screws of the ear rods are also protruding hexagon socket screws. The inside of the teeth on the side of the bezel is a polishing process, and the outside of the teeth is made of heaven and earth sand. Our internal polishing of the teeth is ground through a single tooth. Use a magnifying glass to see that the smoothness of the inside is no less than the gloss of the outside. The patch ring is made of ceramic ring material. The three-dimensional digital effect, the inner silver is more layered than the black font.

PS- There are 51 faces on a single case, 17 on the face cover, 17 on the case, and 17 on the bottom cover.

The dial has been designed many times and made many effect models. Finally, I chose a more conventional black enamel surface. The pin is an ellipse + rectangular combination designed by myself. The effect is the largest at 12 points, followed by 369 points, and the rest Ordinary points are smaller. The main mark at 12 o'clock is Saint Martin's hexagonal metal letter logo, and the sub-mark at 6 o'clock is printed with a red "artisan soul" logo to highlight this originality.

The watch hands are also self-designed relatively traditional sword-shaped needles. A part of the pillow is cut off, and the hour and minute hands have the effect of marking flowers on three sides. The luminous window of the second hand corresponds to the shape effect of the surface time scale.

The steel belt has the effect of I-shaped bead true three-bead steel belt, the middle is polished and sand-brushed on both sides, the strap and the ear face of the case are sanded with the same type of sand belt to ensure the same effect, and the side is also very good. The corresponding case is also made of heaven and earth sand craft.

The buckle is a newly made diving buckle with fine-tuning and stretching. This buckle has been made by a friend for a long time. Compared with the previous buckle, this one is more beautifully polished, especially the inner plate is basically polished in place. Almost There is no sandblasting at dead angles. The empty space for accessories is also smaller, and the opening and closing are smoother. (Everything is good, but the unit price has increased a lot. I have already matched the original buttons, but I want to be more perfect, so I dismantle all the tails and make new buttons.)

In addition, because the surface cover, the middle shell and the bottom cover are polished separately, there will be a little bit of misalignment at the junction (it has been controlled to the best possible extent), which is acceptable. It is true that the process limit that requires perfection cannot be achieved, so let me explain here first.
