I'm always up for a sneaky preview but you can't see much of the watch to make a decision

Or indeed how much it is. I suppose the old adage applies - if you’ve got to ask, you can’t afford it..

Take what you think it should cost, then double it and add a bit on for a piece of scrap metal and you wont be far off. So, I’ll guess at somewhere around the 3 grand mark

Noticed the email mid afternoon. Decided not to post as I figured 'Overpriced Concorde Scrap Metal Limited Edition' wouldn't be well received as a new thread! I may be wrong, but it's a C8 PR with a different dial and a scrap disc in the back. Not for me.
Current collection incl Alpina, Citizen, Oris, Rolex, Seiko, Tag & Tudor.

It’d be fairly accurate though Chris

C8 model - I’m guessing that would be a 44mm case diameter beast then? If so, too big for me although I am still tempted by it. email sent asking for further specifications and pics.

Would also really highly appreciate a closer look how it looks like before reservation! Very strange to reserve one before looking into all details and the look, and not the least to know a price level!?

Design cues taken from the Concorde instruments (photo taken in #002 at the Fleet Air Arm museum).

I don't know the price, but assuming it is broadly in line with previous TMB Art Metal CW watches, I'm buying one.

Hopefully will be able to see one later today.
