      it won an award at the grand pricks for something, or maybe it was just nominated? no idea what the website is saying but it has a nice video of the watch i impatiently await
      first thing i noticed was all the bloody dust on the crystal and the mark on the dial!!! i'm hoping this is a knock up for promo or i won't be impressed

        Do they give you a date for when it will ship to you? Had a look at the site - some beautiful pieces on there.

        the first batch have been issued in the last few weeks. i paid for mine at 2min past the opening and made it to batch 2! so im expecting mine in early december (NZ customs stupidity dependent) although it is sent by DHL so it should just be a phone call and card payment, i have been asked for my importers no. in the past as the authorities are still working from 1940s handbooks where only a large company could possibly be spending over $1000 on an item from overseas
        hopefully it will be the usual painless process but as even hope for and prepare for.

    • it's not really an incoming, but a returning incoming?

      it left like this...



      and is on its way back in these colours...

        And getting stuck in the East Midlands of the UK has got to be one of the worst places possible

        Not sure if this would help you feel better, DW, but at least DHL has their own planes. The rest of the snail-mail crew aren't so fortunate, as most global airmail travel on commercial flights, and most of these are currently grounded. This package of mine was posted in Chistopol, Tatarstan, Russia on 24th March, and now, more than a month a half, the rotor inside is swinging back and forth, somewhere.





        Last update 30th March. The postal services are advising that, due to the scarcity of flights, parcels are being carried by surface mail.

        • Me 3... waiting 6 weeks from the US. Given up on my UK shipment (not watch related) but won’t even post a claim as I figure it will turn up in a couple of months in any case. Probably need to tie some mail bags into seats on a passenger plane.

          • i shouldn't complain by the sound of things!
            mine is now in Straya so fingers crossed for next week some time.

              You will only need to a wait until the trans Tasman freight bubble gets its S##T sorted then

          • To anyone else waiting for international deliveries via the postal services, they are moving, but just very slowly... I received this padded envelope from Germany yesterday, containing watch straps currently on my wrist as I type. Posted in Dortmund, Germany, on 24th April, so 18 business days to arrive in Bangkok. Normally, something like this would make the trip in around 8 working days by Airmail. Not entirely sure whether it came Surface all the way, or SAL.






            The parcel from Russia, sent a full month earlier, is still not progressing. I'm guessing delivery will happen when it happens.

            • mine has now made it to Auckland. funny enough, it tracked as expected all the way to NZ, it landed this morning and the first text i received was from DHL NZ informing me of a delay in delivery but it was scheduled for wednesday so i think it will be on time. with any luck i'll be posting pics early in the week. the Guinand is off to the same man who can next week for a similar overhaul and a bit of refinishing.

                  I would have absolutely loved to have gotten this when I was little! ...The wait can just be attributed to "lengthy space travel"
