The exploded view shows the 45 components that make up this piece. With an average of two parts per component, that makes a total of roughly 90 parts to be made and assembled.
The dial is engine turned silver with gold chapter markers. The threads on the barrel for the optics were thread milled, a process which I will discuss in a later posting. The hands are handmade, hardened and blued. All flat surfaces were hand lapped to a final polish, as the polishing wheel cannot impart a "mirror finish".
This piece has been time well spent at the bench and the rewards were great, from the engineering aspects to the final assembly.
The Collectors Loupe is yet unclaimed, and available for purchase.
