One Week Late, and Address Changes

Posted by Alberta Watches (Creator)

Hello backers!

Address changes

Let's get the important stuff out of the way first: 

If your address has changed since taking the backer survey, please change it on the survey. 

Unfortunately, it seems the only way to do this is to find the email that was sent to you containing the survey link. If you are having troubles let me know. I've also contacted Kickstarter to see if there is another way to change your address other than through the email. 

Address changes will be possible until Nov 1st.

Progress

OK, but this is what everyone is waiting to hear:  

I've been patiently awaiting word from the manufacturer, and we finally have a date for quality control. Inspections will start this Thursday, unfortunately about a week later than we had hoped.  

This means we should be shipping the watches out in the second week of November. 

In the timeline, tasks that have gone or will go over time have now been extended in red. 

And here is a screenshot of how I hope things will roll out. I think it's aggressive, but still realistic, and we are definitely going to try to beat it! Other than receiving the watches, everything is lined up and ready to go, so for now all we can do is wait.

OK, thanks for everyone's questions and support! Hopefully we can easily navigate the world of customs, shipping, and fulfillment, and everyone will get their watches soon and safely! 

Thanks, 

Leo

      Hey Sam,

      I think we will be shipping your watch out before the 9th, but I don't think you'll get it by then.

      Things are going pretty much to the revised plan, updates pretty soon.

      Thanks,

      Leo

      Leo, think there's any way to get my watch by my birthday? Nov. 9?

      @Natalie, I have sent you a message, we'll do everything we can :)

      @Scott, thanks for the kind words. They'll be done right.

      Take the time you need to get them done right. I don't mind waiting even if Natalie gets hers ahead of mine, wedding is a wedding :) keep up the good work.

      Hi there!
      I purchased this, in theory, as a day-of wedding gift for my spouse. The wedding is at the end of november. Is there a way I can expedite my shipping (willing to pay more for this, if necessary) to ensure I get it on time? It would be so nice to still be able to include this gift (for my Albertan husband-to-be) in our day.
