Hey everyone, 

I can't even tell you the amount of spreadsheets we have going on around here... three massive lists, each one 26 pages long! But one by one, the orders are getting crossed off. 

Thank you so much for your patience in this process. We are ALMOST DONE! All the orders will be shipped by the end of the week. 

But, it's not all rainbows and unicorns. 

The U.S. orders seem to be taking a really long time to clear customs. Not a single watch has landed there as far as we know. Please let me know when those American watches start landing! 

Also, a lot of people have been asking for tracking numbers. That is unfortunately not possible. Because we couldn't use a fulfillment centre (due to the backer numbers), we couldn't get access to bulk courier shipping prices. This means we are using regular Canada Post. We are filling out all the paper work diligently, so I'm confident everything is going to arrive safely. 

I know so many of you are patiently awaiting your watches. It shouldn't be too long now, and I really appreciate your understanding. 

When your order arrives, I'd love to hear what you think! If you have any problems or concerns at all, don't hesitate to drop me a line. 

Thanks so much,

Leo

P.S. 
I really wanted to have the watches ship in Mountain Standard Time. They're Alberta Watches, after all! Buuuuut, this guy over here forgot about daylight savings. Not my finest hour (excuse the pun!).

      Hi @Muhammad,

      All the watches were shipped as of last Friday! The international shipments take up to 8 business days + customs, so you should get it next week :)

      Thanks,

      Leo

      My husband is really pleased with his watch. It's such a beautiful timepiece and its face is sublimely minimalist. The best! Will there be a woman's version? I really want my own :)
      Great job on the design, Alberta Watches!

      Yey - the watch I ordered arrived in Norway yesterday, and my husband is really pleased with it (I am too!)! Bought it as a gift for him for our wedding, as our relationship started with 2 years of long distance dating Calgary - Norway 10 years ago. Thank you - it's beautiful!

      Thanks, Leo. Sorry for the confusion! I must have forgot what I put on the survey. Love the watch and thanks for a great design.

      Hey @Sami,

      I just checked your backer survey, and you asked for a black in the survey. I'll PM you and make sure you end up with the combo you like!

      Just received it in California! Its great...... but I received the wrong color strap. I ordered the saddle maker strap in light brown, but I received the black saddle maker strap.

      Not a huge deal, I know you had a lot of orders to fulfill and there was bound to be a mixup. Just wanted to bring it to your attention. Otherwise, I love it!

      Safe arrival in Seattle. The watch is beautiful. Thank you.

      Received mine in Chicago today. Very nice looking watch. I prefer the original strap over Horween leather one. Much cleaner look. Good job! Thanks.

      @Elizabeth:
      Very sorry about that! Most post-campaign orders were shipped out with the original orders, but yours somehow slipped through the cracks. I'll ship your 3d watch right away!

      Just arrived, LOVE THEM! Even better than I thought they would be. I am super excited to give them to my sons for Christmas. One thing, I ordered a third watch and it did not arrive, how could I get that one as well?
