OK.... Order the C8 now on credit before it's too late and pay it off when you finally get the Victorinox sold. Does that help?

Hey... when you got to have, you've got to have it.... or go stark raving "MAAAAD"! :grumble: And then what happens? You end up in the asylum with Kip feeding you through a tiny opening of a steel door to your padded room until you come to your senses. Surely, this can all be so avoided by a simple click of the mouse! :computer:

Is it really a limited watch? So if you don't preorder you just won't get it?

I think the first batch sold fairly quickly - no idea of how many CWL are going to make.

I had a bought for me as a Christmas present - highly recommend the watch.

As Russ-Shettle says - order it now and you pay when the watch is ready to despatch :D

Haven't we all been there once? I waited for the price to come down on a vintage Zodiac Seawolf and lost it to another buyer. Now that will really put you in the asylum. Loosing is much worse than hesitation. A few electric shock treatments got me back to reality but lately I've started dreaming again.

Would be interested to know the answer to this, the sales pitch on the site doesn't mention anything about it being a limited run which it does for certain other models that don't specifically state Limited Edition - C9 JH, C70 COSC, C50 COSC for example... :problem:

Where's Kip, oh yea, stuffing some newbee in a cage full of tantalizing watch pictures. Orientation to the Asylum, you see. Anyway, I know Kip can answer your question. Keep checking back or send him a private email.

Neither the C8 Vintage Edition or the C8 Vintage Edition U-2 are limited production models. They are part of the regular line. :clap:

Highly recommend this watch. Wanted it from the first time I saw it, and it gets as many comments as other more expensive watches. :thumbup:

Just find a way, I bought a C9 in January part paid for by Christmas gifts, then I spotted the DBR1. I just had to have it. I Looked at it everyday, then I noticed the only ones left were the COSC versions and they were even more limited than the none COSC version. I decided to quit smoking to justify buying it. It arrived on Tuesday and it hasn't been off my wrist since. I bloody love it.

Sooooo to summarise, make an excuse, any excuse and buy it. You'll kick yourself if you miss out.

Yep, the DBR1 is gorgeous and for me, the pick of the GP series. Be careful of the bezel, though, they do chip quite easily - mine has one tiny dink even though I'm very careful with it. I just love playing with the chronograph and watching the fly-back - never tire of it!
Oh, and it's a hell of a good movement - my non-COSC is phenomenally accurate. I check both it and my quartz Seamaster once a month, then use them as master timekeepers to set the mechanicals.
Enjoy! 8)

I'm exactly the same, I keep setting the timer just so I can reset it. There are three c70s on eBay at the minute, a brook lands, a dbr1 and a GP corsa. Oh how I'd love the corsa and brook lands.
