Watch is undergoing the final steps of the design process, so I think we have a fairly final idea of what it will be. Please only choose an LE number if you are absolutely sure you are buying.


LE No.1, 2, 20, and 5 are spoken for at this time.

One of my biggest attractions (without seeing the design) was the #3, but I guess I'm too late for the party.

If I agree with the final design, I guess I'd be up for #19.

I REALLY need to see a visual mock-up of the dial before I can commit to this.

I also need a more firm figure for the cost as well

And the caseback engraving is a bit of a source for concern for me. A globe is fine ; something like the Wright brothers is fine ; the X1 (which was my original idea for the first LE) is fine. A lightening bolt is less convincing to me personally.

If some can do a photoshop job of the design that'll assist me immeasurably. (I mocked-up the original one myself, but I haven't got time to do it for this one too).

Worryingly, I find myself agreeing with Driver8 here!\

Guys please read my original post, all this "pending" stuff will make it much harder to get a confirmed headcount! I am working on the details and a final design mock up, please wait for them if you are not sure.

I think I have to disregard the reservations with "pending" attached to them. For the sake of simplicity I will just have to restart this thread tomorrow. Mods please close this thread up.

Fair enough. Then I guess disregard my reservation. If there are spaces left after the mockup is done, I will confirm then. I certainly understand your point, Altair, but I think a bit of patience toward those of us reluctant to commit to spending a sum of money completely sight unseen. The last one is great! I hope this one is it's equal!
