The Seaforth wears a tad small but not as small as the photo suggests next to the Rolex. It’s only because the Rolex is on a bracelet and sitting higher than the Halios.

At Wind Up we tried it next to a 5513 and it almost the same size just thinner. Without the bezel the Seaforth looks even smaller.

He was on a shared server for his WP the first time when it crashed. Not a super smart choice but he decided to gamble on that. Support at the host looked into the issue and gave him some assurances it wouldn’t happen again. Alas it did and he is moving to Shopify. Migration can take a few days and then testing has to occur. Jason is he best in the business for customer service but has always said his web skills are let’s say below par.
Being Canadian I 100% hope things work out for him this time and suspect they will. People on IG and WUS need to STFU.

Let them bitch and moan. Others usually call the babies out after awhile. Until it rolls into a Ginault thread that is. Image

halioswatches: Good morning! Just an update for everyone - piles and piles of emails and messages to get to, which I'll tackle shortly. Work began on the migration to a new platform the same night of the 2nd *ahem* "tech incident". The goal is to get ordering back up towards the very end of the coming week. Still sorting out the inventory situation, but I will not be cancelling the "lucky" orders as there were less than 30 of them. Official update on the website tomorrow. Needless to say: if you suffered TWICE, woke up at an ungodly hour, missed work, ruined relationships, took the time to write, gave feedback - you have my deepest thanks.
I guess I actually got one by accident.

Orders start on Monday at 3pm Pacific Time. He moved to Shopify so hopefully things go smooth. 3rd time’s a charm?

I'm sure someone can help you out! Let me know what you wanted to order, and I can see if I can get in.

I was thinking of buying one randomly just in case anyone missed the chance. So if anyone needs one let me know.

Mine (already confirmed) is likely going to be an immediate flip at cost + shipping. I really don't think I'll ever wear it with some other recent changes to the collection. If anyone is interested in a pastel with dive bezel, let me know. Otherwise it's going to the highest fanboy bidder on eBay

EDIT: It is now spoken for.

Got confirmation for Yellow with steel dive bezel. Hopefully that means I really got one. Last time he had to cancel some orders.

Tried for a couple of friends, and the configurations they wanted must have been desirable. They were gone in a minute. Literally a minute.

I got myself a couple of fixed bezels. Blue dial and grey dial.

Blue with sapphire bezel was my first choice, but seemed like it was sold out from under me while I was getting my payment routed to PayPal. It was in my cart, then unavailable. Maybe I should have used a credit card instead.

Got my second choice though. Grey with steel diver bezel.

Wow that went fast....

I am sure that many people are bitching about the sold out as they went to pay.....saw that coming like a train wreck....

I went to the gym and had a great workout. Didn’t give it a second thought.

You were able to check out with a couple today, or the fake sale on the 19th? That's some fast finger action if you were able to check out even 1 today.
