- In this post you can find my sketch how the Limited will look:

Kingfisher Limited Prototype

One more final drawing will be produced by CW, but there won't be major changes, so it will look almost identical.

How to order:

Only start the below procedure if you really want to order the Limited CW, not if you are thinking about it, or will probably buy one, only if you are certain please!
- Send an email to: limited@christopherwardforum.com
- Subject: CW Limited Edition Order
- Please provide the following details:
- Name:
- email:
- Telephone-number:
- Country:
- Serial-number you would like if you have a preference (SERIALS ALREADY TAKEN):
- Steel bracelet, Steel/IPK bracelet, leather or rubber strap
- The number of limiteds you want to order:
- Your forum-name:

If multiple people want the same serial-number, first in line gets that serial-number.

After october 30 CWL gets the order-list and we will finalize the orders and make payment- and shipment-arrangements.

Regards,

Hans

Just a request for clarification, I notice in the list of options for the KF LE, it just says Mechanical/Automatic movement. I don't see anywhere the movement was actually specified. I think we all assume it to be an ETA 2824-2, but just to be sure, is the KF LE going to have the same movement as the Aviator? The elabor (I think it was) grade Rhodium finished ETA 2824-2? Or one more like the C5, or maybe something altogether different?

Also, on the normal KF, there is not a display back. Will the KF LE have a display back? I know some may want the non-display back for the NDL tables, but some may want the display back, and I realize it was never mentioned one way or the other. Since it wasn't mentioned, and the normal KF doesn't have a display back, I would tend to expect the KF LE to not have the display back. On the other hand, if it doesn't have a display back, is there a point to a more expensively finished movement?

Also, I notice in the specs that the superluminova is going to have blue pigment. Is that still the case? Anyone have any links to photos of watches with the blue superluminova? I have never seen it.

Thanks.

The LE-version of the Kingfisher will have the rhodium-finished ETA-2824-2. Not only does it look nice, it also is of a higher grade with better regulation and performance. The Kingfisher will be a diver with 30 ATM / 300 mtrs, so a display-back will not be possible...
About the blue superluminova, we are not certain yet, I talked with Chris about it, and we will investigate with the prototype model if that looks nice.

Order for #24 submitted through mail.

Why 24?
Well, because I was born on December 24.
Plus my grandson, who is likely to inherit it when I keel over, was born on May 24.
So there. ;)

Whoa, wait.

How do we express our preference for a strap or bracelet?
I'd prefer the steel/IPK contrast bracelet, or at least a steel bracelet.

You can express your preference during the final placement of the order at CWL; the rubber strap will cost a bit less then the contrasting SS-bracelet, next week the exact prices of KF with rubber and KF with bracelet will be published.
