15/11/2019 Since designing the earlier OCS Portsea ring concept in consultation with the project’s early supporters (from multiple classes), the project team has since completed technical final artwork (FA) for the manufacturers we have shortlisted.
See this file containing the range of OCS Portsea (OCSP) rings we designed, in both white precious metal (WPM) and yellow gold (YG). The images are shown below.
Recently, we requested design proposals from several shortlisted vendors and have whittled the list down to 2-3 finalists and we are now in the process of evaluating their design and commercial proposals.
We anticipate the winning designs being available for posting on the project’s blog by the end of Nov. 2019.
Subsequently, prototype rings should be available as photographic product models by year-end 2019 or early Jan. 2020 at the latest.
Once the rings have been supplied to the project’s early supporters (from multiple classes), class 6/83 “2020 SE Asia Reunion” attendee buyers, and class 6/83 buyers by end Q1, 2020; then ring orders will be opened up to all OCS Portsea alumni buyers who are interested. We expect from Q2, 2020 onwards.
Eventually, orders will be able to be placed by individual OCS Portsea alumnus buyers directly with the vendor(s) selected. Our project team and class 6/83 has no profit motive and has completed this project as a public service to the OCS Portsea alumni community.
