This is what I've been waiting for! Looks like the smaller version of The Twelve!

That would be my guess based on the images and the fact that CW stated at the 12 launch 36s would be coming later this year. I'd say 36mm green dial 12. Looks like maybe a different texture too.

This is earlier than I expected, is it the 11.5 launch?

Probably is the 36mm Twelve. I do hope that the color in the teaser is closer to the real dial color this time - that pink/blue teaser for the last release was pretty far off from the Mulberry we ended up getting.

Excited to see what these look like!

Ummmm... the Roman Numerals on the teaser:

X II

Clearly the 36mm 12. I am interested in the new colors but the size of the original is just right for me. :D

I'm avoiding posting links to Twitter or Instagram, so here's a series of Screenshots, in chronological order, from a Twitter / Instagram 'Reel' (or whatever you want to call it).

I think the message is clear. :wink: :wink:

If the message is clear, it may need to be dumbed down for me because I'm not getting it lol. Maybe there will be a 36, 38, and 39mm version? Are the other numbers color codes? If so, that would mean red, purple, dark green, light green and black.

^^^^ If you watch the Reel you'll see the numbers countdown (as if on a timer) from 40.000 to 36.000.

The numbers in my Screenshots are simply where I was able to 'shot' the film.

Ahhhh that makes much more sense, thanks. It wouldn't make sense to have 36/38/39/40. I believe Mike stated in the past that the smaller release later in the year would be 36mm, so that's no surprise. I can't wait to see if the whole design remains the exact same or if they tweaked it for the 36mm.

The image on the "small is big" looks to me like a part of the 12 sided octagon.

So there will be an MMA type battle to get the first wave, I expect.
