Update on the rate of sales to gauge some sort of snapshot of the relative desirability to the wider watch community.

The cart is currently showing the following numbers remaining:
46 x Blackout w/strap
58 x Sandstorm w/strap

I'm loading the shopping cart with a hypothetical bulk order of, say, 100 pieces of each variant, and then clicking through to checkout.

The billing software then updates the order to reflect "Out of Stock" and advises how many pieces of each variant are left... :thumbup:

You still get free shipping on an order of 150 watches! ... mind you, it will cost you about $350,000 US. :lol:

cheers

Good God, people seem to think there are replacing the C60 and C65 Image
I don’t think any comments have suggested that anyone thinks that to be honest
Idk, some people here seem almost apoplectic that these watches exists......

Hardly apoplexy, but you can expect a broad spectrum of opinion. It is what we have come to understand as part of the forum process when any new model or line is introduced. There will be those who love it, those who hate it, those who remain indifferent, and those who keep their opinions to themselves. Not a great deal wrong with that.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Nothing wrong with people expressing their opinions, of course. This is a great forum to do so.

However, I’ve felt what Commisar is expressing since this thread first started. There is always a broad spectrum of opinion, but some opinions on this watch appear to have stretched much further to the negative compared with all the other recent releases. Unnecessarily so in my opinion, but maybe that’s just because I particularly like this watch.

Well said. We should respect everyone's opinion and have a balanced view of all comments. Personally, I view this watch as a potential classic being of small proportions (which is always good over time) with the rarity aspect that makes it a potential future collectible. I've bought one to put in the cupboard along with a plethora of other (hopefully) potential investments. I may wear it though!
