Watches have arrived!

Hey Backers! 

The watches are in Calgary! 

The watches arrived to our door yesterday. Fulfillment has begun! 

To say it's a complicated process is a bit of an understatement. With 3 dials, 5 strap options, and serial numbers that should match fairly closely with backer numbers, each watch has to be custom assembled for each order. With the serial numbers, it also means we can't hire a fulfillment company to help us, as they only deal with limited amounts of product options. Here, each product is unique! 

All this being said, we will start shipping out the first watches tomorrow! This will mostly follow the order of backer numbers, so earlier backers will get their watches first. 

As we gain more experience and improve the process as we go, I'll be better able to estimate how long shipping them all will take. For now, I just ask for your patience. The watches are here, and I want to make sure we do this step right while we're in the homestretch. 

And as always, thank you for your support!

      Have there been any shipments to Waterloo, Ontario yet? Just want to have a rough idea of when to expect it so I can make plans to stay home. Thanks!
