its a shame he has such a Fd up purchase process or else i too would have one. Im not patient enough to deal with the crazy process to try to get one. They are beautiful,,,too bad he cant produce in greater qty and have a normal sales channel.

Give it time. If history of this forum is any indication, one of those will end up for sale within a month, if not sooner.

A few already for sale on recon. US$1500 for a pastel one.... what did those things costs originally (I haven't followed this at all to be honest)?

Those ebay prices are ridic. I wouldn’t pay 1500 for one even if it had a beer flavored crystal.

My gen 1 was nice but damn, these things are hyped to the max.

I want one of the Bahama dials. A fixed version would rock.

Biggest part of the announcement is, drumroll, pre-order process!

After the first 3 attempts and losing one from my basket after Forasec got there delivery and they started turning up on EBay I managed to snag the one I wanted with a slight mark up off a decent guy in the Uk... He could have sold it for a lot more but he just chose to sell it on with the fees and a drink on it... Nimbus Grey Sapphire I can now let episode 4 wash right over me...lol

I hope he did this for the right reasons, and doesn't underestimate the new headaches and pressure on him throughout the process.

Mathematically, $200 makes sense as I believe that these are his cost on a per watch basis, and always believed that he makes about 400-500 watches with each seaforths run - to minimize his total outlay where he feels comfortable (80-100K is a lot to lay out plus Ispares, etc.).

I believe that there will still be unhappy people after this.

And I want an orange one.
