I wonder which limited edition. A long way to go on the off chance, though.

It will be a limited edition designed specifically for the event. Not one of the existing versions.

Feel likes a transparency dial like Studio UNderd0g 02Series collection / field watch would be different enough for 10pc ltd ed, otherwise it seems like they have offered every popular colour options.

Rest assured there's loads of unused colours. There's billions of colours on a PC.

There's not been a bright red, a deep red/burgundy, or a yellow for instance. Maybe teal or a turquoise would be good. The pastel colours of the 12 haven't all been used. The beak could be a different colour.

There have been Special Editions with different dial treatments as well, not all sunray finish.

Maybe they go for broke and do something of an homage to the Roger Smith Great Britain

Is anyone else going to the event? I bought a couple of tickets (dragging the missus :lol: ). Excited to see what they have in store. Plus there will be other Enligh watchmakers like Farer, etc. Would love to connect with other forum members, it's a good opportunity.

I give myself half a point here as the Union Jack theme was included in this LE Bel Canto as Roger Smith did in the Great Britain.

From the Oracleoftime article;-

. . . . the Bel Canto 9324 British Watchmakers’ Day is priced at £4,995 and is limited to just 10 pieces. It’s exclusively available at the Alliance of British Watch and Clock Makers’ event on March 9th at Lindley Hall in London where you can enter a raffle for a chance to purchase one of the watches, ensuring fair allocation.

Answers some earlier questions. :wink: :wink:

That blue is awfully close to the original Azzuro Blue version. It is a different watch with the textured dial and (yuck) roman numerals but the colour might have some people asking questions.

You can't retire one of your best colours just like that. :D
