I wonder if the promised site improvements have been made which is reflected in the improved responsiveness. Similarly I wonder if new processes on the backend introduces temporary challenges making dynamic updates to the daily specials.

Been refreshing for last 35 mins and nothing.
Surely if they had no sale stock left they would have said, then I could have stayed in bed 😀

I am wondering if they migrated to a new server set to a different time zone. Hopefully it is not California time.

The release of NN stock has been late is before I think but I associated that lateness with the slow running of the site...

Today it’s running like greased lightning, and considering there is probably the same number of us refreshing that us unusual, surely any update would be done before a planned event like the daily specials, not at the end of it?

Thanks Andy...

I was blindly refreshing and looking for watches, now you mention it I can see the new message as well 🧐

As a side note wonder what the issues are? site is running so well, and that is unusual at almost any time, but when there is so many of us refreshing it’s unheard of.

See you all at 1200hrs .... if I remember

What a waste of time. Another disappointing day of refreshing for there just to be "server issues."

I am sure all the ones on eBay are coming down in price as there is plentiful of supply of the bronze there now, so don't worry too much!

Seems to be a few sellers who buy the sales gear, stick £100 on the price and relist straight away, a few with multiples of the current sales watches relisted

Same here....
Wonder if the server issues haven’t been fixed, I say this as the site is still running well....
as it was this morning ...

Or maybe they didn’t mean 1200hrs... this is where the 24 hour clock saves any confusion...

Perhaps they are just late?
