Good and bad NEWS + COLOR STRAP SURVEY

Hi Guys,

Here we are with another update. This time I bring good and bad news. The good news is that the watches will be ready on time, we have only a couple of days delay which should not affect the delivery. All colors are already done and this week we will do the assembly in order to be ready for the packaging end of the week. We should be able to start shipping from Wednesday 21th of December.

GOOD AND BAD NEWS

Now hat the delivery is getting closer and closer we find out the reality and some lies from our suppliers are coming up: The bad news number 1 is that the Italian leather (Nato, Saffiano and Racing) will not be ready on time for the shipping but it will have a 4 weeks delay due wrong leather colors. We have the same problem with Warranty and Certificate of authenticity cards. The supplier made an error during printing and we have to re-print all again. Unfortunately it’s a process that takes 2.5 weeks. We will send a virtual warranty card for all the solar system editions, while limited editions and special editions will receive the warranty card and certificate of authenticity + Italian leather strap at the end of January.

We want you to have the watches by Christmas so we will ship the watches with black nato strap, Nasa and travel bag. Late January we will ship out the straps with the related cards. Anyway you will be able to register your watch and activate your warranty once our website is ready, end of January which means you have an extra month warranty.

STRAP COLOR SURVEY 

At the following link you will find our strap color survey, where you will be able to communicate us your favorite color. If we don’t receive any preference we will send you the Best color option to match with the model you have ordered.

      I have no problem with that. If I can get the watch by Xmass I would be very Happy.

      Thanks

      looks ok, however, lets be realistic: starting shipment on dec 21st from dubai will not lead to many christmas shipments, also considering customs etc. respecting the holiday season with many backers not at home it might be backer to start shipping in january. just my 2 cents.
