In an earlier post tlinn asked how may SOAs were ordered/sent out in this first go round. So...

What serial #'s can we pinpoint out there?

Mine, ordered 9/22/06 is # 1-162.

Anybody else?

Mine is 1109. I have not taken a close look, but is the case number on the watch somewhere. I see something by the lugs but I am an old man and can't read it.

I am a very satisfied customer. I think this is a great watch.

11-035... I'm just becoming more of a fan daily of

Kobold and his watches... I really wish I'd gotten an Endurance II, the blue bezel and hands simply kill....... I'm really enjoying my first day with SOA and the extra band was just a classy move.... Kudo's Mike......

Well I think you can still get yourself an EII, as I have seen one or two up on Timezone within the last two weeks or so...

Mine is 1-097 and it was ordered in November, don't remember the exact date.
I THINK THEE IS NO PARTICULAR RHYME OR REASON TO THE SERIAL NUMBERS. I HAVE 1-109 AND WAS THE 4TH PERSON TO ORDER BACK IN JULY OR AUG I THINK

As mr2blue points out, there doesn't seem to be any correlation between order date & serial #, which sort of surprises me. I guess it really doesn't matter much, but with all else being equal, I'd prefer an early # to a late #.

Any thoughts out there on either the importance of the actual # or on the process (or lack thereof) Kobold uses in matching watch #s to orders?

I believe the serial #s will one day be important as with any limited production items. Remember, Kobold only makes 2500 watches per year and he seems to be sticking to his guns on this.

I picked my SOA up on Friday since it was having the bracelet installed and found my Serial # to be 1 037 which is pretty low it seems, from what others have posted. I ordered the first couple days it was available, but that doesn't seem to be pertinent... luck of the draw I guess. Beautiful watch, love the larger case and the decoration of the movement.

Regards,

Bob
