Not quite ready to open up the pre-order yet (apologies if I wasn't more clear in my last post, and if you were preparing to throw money in my direction), but here is a bit more info as we continue to put some meat on these bones. You'll also find a pre-order open date at the end of this post.

- Pastel Blue is confirmed, and while it will be the third time producing this dial, I quite like the fact that it has become somewhat of a defining colour for the series (go #teampastel).

- beginning to rethink the decision to produce the Abyss Blue again. Thoughts on a lighter shade that doesn't appear black 85% of the time?

- orange is a go!

- ...which leaves us the final colour: sunburst grey.

- development and design work continue on the Roldorf edition. Expect Arabic numerals, no date and the ETA 2892-A2. Also, expect the pre-order on this one to start at the same time as the regular 2824-2 Seaforth.

- no date will be an available option. For the better part of a year, I had been searching to no avail for a source for an ETA part to do a no-date modification, but thanks to a tip from Matt Cook of A.M. Cook Watches, a true no date option is in the works. More info to come.

So, let's set a date for the opening of the pre-order to save you from incessantly refreshing the Journal: THURSDAY, MARCH 8TH (Vancouver, Canada time). You won't have to worry about hitting the site at a certain time, or a watch being yanked from your cart, or your favourite variant being sold out this time around. The pre-order will be open for one week to start, after which we'll reassess whether or not it'll remain open. When the pre-order opens up, you'll see all the final dial and bezel options, along with mockups of the variants.

Comments open!

could I kindly request for some simple measurement of the dial size?

1. end of applied hour markers (3-9)
2. end of printed minute markers (3-9)

thank you!

Ordered the orange. And the fixed DLC sunburst grey.

I’ve admired Jason’s designs ever since the Laguna (not really a Puck guy) so think I’ll have to jump at this opportunity. Abyss Blue/sapphire...but undecided on date/no date.

Did you go PVD?
I like how the PVD case works with the orange dial too. ,
I got a SS Abyss blue with blue sapphire and date.
But was hard to decide between 3-4 variants I really like.
I may grab a second with PVD case and fixed bezel. Just not sure which color love the PVD fixed bezel with orange, blue and grey
Figure if I don’t want to keep both at least I’ll be able to compare Watches in hand then sell one near new price

I’ve looked at the options and I end up liking the SS versions that look like my Tropik. I guess that means I don’t need to order one.
