This watch is a fresh design and as such many of the parts require new tooling. Therefore please understand that the construction of the watch will take many months to complete. Progress updates will be given as new information becomes available. Pictures of prototypes and/or samples will be provided when available. For pre-ordering you are getting an awesome deal on a limited production timepiece. Many of us know that waiting for a new watch can be frustrating so please keep this in mind when making this commitment. I know this is a little vague, but there are so many things that effect the production cycle. However if enough interest early on, I'd expect to have them completed before the year-end.
As you may know there was an informal serial number reservation list a while back. In order to accommodate those who "reserved" a specific number, you will have first dibs to keep your number.
If you HAVE "reserved" a number already
, send an email to [email protected]
with your first and last name, WUS username and the serial number. I will provide you with a PayPal address you can send the $300 deposit to. There will be a reasonable amount of time given to hold your number and make the deposit. Afterwards, you will be contacted if I don't hear from you. And then if you don't make your deposit, your number will be removed from the preferred list and be made available for someone else.
If you HAVE NOT "reserved" a number already,
please stay tuned and be on the lookout for the open ordering process.
