Have a question?
Elshan - The Pics of the watch look fantastic, can't wait for receive FEDEX email? Are you shipping per the Backer #?, or what is the shipping priority? Many thanks for all your efforts.
Can't wait to wear the watch on my wrist. Thanks Elshan.
Sorry. I missed your post that some are going out next week. Ill be patient.
Yes. Everything went silent. I never got an email. What's up Zelos?
I also received an email from fedex :)
fedex mail received :-)
looking forward to it!
First quarter of the shipments are going out tomorrow while the rest are looking to be picked up by fedex on Mon-Wed. You'll get a fedex email with tracking once your label is created and do allow for 1-2 days before it will be picked up.
A little worried here. No update and i am moving very soon. Kind of need to know when my watch will be here.
Can update us pls
Tomorrow is "middle of next week", have you shipped the watches yet?
Will the shipments be trackable?
@Elshan - Hi, I was just wondering if you're still on track to have all the watches shipped out by the middle of this week? I'm super excited to get this on my wrist!
The straps will be available on the website and shipped separately as I hope to get all the watches out first. Don't want to tax our logistics too much with the various strap orders :)
Hey Elshan, what about the additional straps? Are they available for sale and possibly be delivered at the same time as the watches?
Thanks Eishan! Can't wait to see this versatile dress piece on the wrist. You continue to raise the bar in the micro market and will really look forward to seeing how you top this model, It sure won't be easy!
Great stuff - looking forward to it
Hi guys! QC is all done and the packing begins for the watches! We're aiming to ship all out by the middle of next week and all backers should get their watch by the end of the month. Cheers!
Hi Elshan, any news? Just an update on the progress of the QC would be nice to hear. Even bad news is better than no news.
Please advise on shipping date. As i am moving at the end of september i need to know if i should change my address.
Eishan, any updates on where we are in the QC/shipping process?
@Zelos Watches : what about the additional straps you mentioned in update #9, are they available now ? (thinking about the grey one and the blue one)
Yes all watches come on the black strap to make things more consistent, and the brown strap will be included in the package. Cheers!
Hi Hunn, yes thank you.
@Iggy Please check the Update 5 "We are nearing the end of the campaign and I appreciate all the support from everyone so far! I would like to offer Stretch Goal #4 which means every watch will come with BOTH the brown Horween leather and the black croc leather strap."
Hi Elsan, I was looking at the pictures of the last update. I realised the straps were of black leather for all the watches. I pledge the meteorite dial in bronze and would like it to come with the brown tan leather please.
They look awesome!!
@Elshan It is a great news. So I may get my watch early since shipping out locally? :)
@Elshan Good job... looking forward to getting my watch soon!!
I second the request for a few photos.
@Elshan - Hi, it looks like we're about a month out from shipping. Do you have any updates as to where you're at in the process? Also do you have any photos you can share of the watches in production? It would be great to see the progress. Can't wait to get mine!
Creator, any update??
Agree... also if it is possible to let us know the progress and estimated shipping date....
@Creator do you have any update for us? Would love to see some pictures! I love kickstarter campaigns for the creating process as much as the end product!
@Ben, no worries, sorry if I came across angry, it was because the fees these courier companies charge enrage me, mainly because they are have zero transparency and are completely random, I can attest to this because I've paid so many of them on so many occasions that there has never been any logic to the amounts charged.
17track is fantastic, I've rarely had something that it couldn't track with the exception of some very very cheap asian postal services, which even then work just with long delays between updates.
@Brian Sorry, I was attempting to agree with you. I despise courier companies for effectively holding my package hostage. I was just trying to stay positive because I'm eager to get my hands on this watch, even if I know it's going to be accompanied by flat-out extortion. Also, I've never heard of that website, so thanks for the tip!
@Elshan any news about the additional straps?
@Ben Pearson, for most people it's not time to time, it's every time, and every time it's extortion and not in any way decipherable and attributable to any actual physical factor other than possibly a random number generator, and you can't dispute it as you end up paying more if you do. As to tracking, I would agree when it's some tiny pigeon carrier from some far flung tiny protectorate somewhere in the middle of an ocean, but the majority of international carriers do provide full tracking which works perfectly well when using 17track.net
I hate to say it but most international postal carriers don't have tracking that covers multiple countries. Sending something from Canada to the US would, but not to, say, Malaysia. So at least we'll know where our packages are.
I get screwed by couriers from time to time and I absolutely hate it, but once in a blue moon I think it's worth it. Like now. :)
Right now its looking around the middle of Sept but getting the entire batch out usually takes 2-3 weeks. If all goes well all should be done by the end of Sept. Cheers!
@Creator May I know our orders will be dispatched by early, middle or end of September?
FedEx, DHL, UPS, doesn't really matter, they're all the same, random calculation of shipping cost (always higher than any realistic value) and extortionate admin fees. The best option IMHO is tracked international postal carrier rather than courier
I'll be shipping via fedex, hope that works better with the customs. Cheers!
I will second that comment as I received a watch from them as well and was charged $70 by DHL in Canada!
One reccomendation to the Creator in the interest of all backers. In another project I backed (Richard Legrand) DHL was choosen to execute the shipment. They debited to the recipients an handling/administration cost (10-15 euro in the various cases) and in the calculation of the custom duties they arbitrary considered a virtual freight cost. In my case, the import cost I calculated with precision in 48 euro became 74 euro. Please do not use DHL and in any case please put in clear that: 1) shipment and freight costs are included in the amount paid by the backers; 2) no additional costs of any kind have to be charged to the recepients.
Hey guys! Yes you'll be able to edit your address anytime before shipping begins. I will be sending out an update before it is locked for changes. Thank you!
Oh wait! I found the email that asked for my address in the first place and it seems I can change it there.
I can't find it either. Apparently we're supposed to contact you directly, Elshan.
Same situation as Ben mentioned below, I am moving a short distance. However, apologies I am new to KS, I do not see where to input my address under my account or profile.
