So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

I'm sure it was mentioned that the new 4 colours were going on general release on the 19th. The swish in that advert shows the 4 new colours.

But that thread had many more close up pictures.

Good question.

I was on the waiting list and received the link last time and then ordered mine.

I would think they will provide a link on January 19, but if you don't get an email you should still be able to visit their site and order one.

I was somewhat surprised that I received this new email considering I have one on order, but perhaps they expect some folks will be buying multiple Bel Cantos.

Looking at the prices on eBay etc, I wouldn’t be surprised!!

I don't want to say I'm disinterested but actually it's close enough for now.

^^^ Not yet, but I wouldn’t expect it to be too different from the original. They will tell us. In their own sweet time.

It will be interesting to see when Bel Canto goes 'public' as a watch for general sale, what they are saying about supply. Certainly a 'pre-order' as is a rolling situation for many models as they come in and out of stock. I'm buying some popcorn to see how this plays out .... :)

For those that enjoyed the Mad Watch Collectors style and delivery :shock: in the thread about the problems with Rolex viewtopic.php/other-brands/the-problems ... 198ff1c69b he's now done a review of the Bel Canto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVBkZIJ2URk and in the comments says:
