About this Product

• The free turning helm is held captive by the planetary ring (already tested: the helm did not fuse with the planetary ring when printed in Strong and Flexible and Stainless Steel) • Could also be worn as a pendant (lanyard not included) • I designed it initially as a Father's Day present for my dear friend, John Predescu, who's like a father to me; John spent most of his youth crisscrossing the seas as a helmsman on all kind of ships; now, at 83, John is in very good health (he attributes this fact mostly to the incredible amount of Resveratrol in his favorite Chilean red wine) and keeps very active, not too much as a seaman but as a professional video-reporter for the Romanian community in New York; he drives around a lot in heavy traffic and, quite often, when he's not too busy fixing something on it, he takes his motorboat for a spin; he's more up to date on the latest technological developments than most people half his age! • Before I ordered the stainless steel version I added some copy on both sides of the wheel and ordered a model in "White Strong and Flexible", primarily to check on the clearance I provided for the captive helm and to make sure the text was readable. When I've got the sample – even though I wanted to present it to John on Father's Day as a surprise – I couldn't resist the temptation to show it to him; He liked it very much, but – since he decided that he's going to use it as a keying for his car and boat keys – he suggested I replace my "Happy Father's Day!... etc." text with some useful information that could come-in handy in case of an emergency; so, before I ordered the stainless steel version he asked me to put his Name, Phone Number and the Blood Group type on one side of the wheel and, on the other side, the word "EMERGENCY" followed by "DR." (Full Name of his family doctor) followed the Phone Number of the doctor's office (that provides around the clock assistance for his patients) • Just a few days ago, I received the stainless steel version; the captive helm did not fuse so it could turn freely inside the planetary ring; when I gave it to John, he examined it for a good while with his 20/20 naked eyes; then with his 6x aspheric Bausch & Lomb loupe; at the end, he said it was wonderful and gave me a fatherly kiss; then he surprised me with a question: "– Now, what are you going to give me for Father's Day?"; Since I know John for quite a while, now, I had my answer ready and surprised him back: "– I am going to give you the same thing with 3 planetary rings instead of one; "– You're wasting your valuable time; I don't think you can make it so I can steer it in all three axes" said John; "– Wanna bet?" said I. • Click on the "Create Your Own" button to specify the text you wish to be embossed on each side of the wheel (up to 40 characters on each side).
