It’s unbelievable to think that our VIP Pre-Order is 4 days away! Our community keeps growing and the response from the project has been nothing short of remarkable. Since starting on this journey there have been many things we have had to work through to ensure we can reach our VIP Pre-order price of just 6,990CHF(excluding tax and shipping) and we are pleased that we are able to keep to this price for everyone taking part in the VIP pre-order.
VIP Pre-Order Price 6,990CHF (w.o. VAT/Tax)
During our VIP pre-order we will also be extending the opportunity for 50% payment with the remainder due a month prior to shipping. For those that wish to pay 100% up front we will reward you with 50% off all additional strap purchases at the time of checkout. As well there will be the option select your case number on a first come first serve basis and the option of a COSC upgrade.
Case Number Selection
COSC Upgrade 300CHF
Partial Payment for VIP Only
Full Payment 50% OFF Additional Straps
8 Straps to Choose From
Additional Straps 180CHF
VIP Pre-Order 6,990CHF (w.o. VAT/Tax)
June Pre-Order 7,490CHF (w.o. VAT/Tax
We have increased the amount of straps we were initially offering from 4 to 8 straps and we will be offering those for a very reasonable 180CHF inclusive of Swiss VAT.
Initially we had hoped to keep the VIP pre-order the same price for both pre-order dates, however with the limited margin and a few additional unforeseen costs we are keeping the initial pre-order at 6,990CHF (excluding tax) and we will be increasing the June pre-order amount to 7,490CHF (excluding tax). In case we have a lot of late birds joining the party we may consider a 3rd order window.
904L Stainless Steel
Gold Case Upgrade 3500CHF
The samples we produced are both 904L Stainless Steel and Grade 5 Titanium. The reason for the two metals was that we wanted to decrease the weight as typically tourbillons can be heavy. After taking the watches to the scales we were shocked that there was only a 12 gram difference in weight. After spending more time with the watches we noticed how the two metals performed and the clear standout for us was the 904L stainless steel.
The 904L Stainless Steel at 52 grams makes for a light watch, is anti-allergic and has a wonderful brilliance about it. In addition, the majority of enthusiasts that have had a chance to see the watch have gravitated towards the 904L. Therefore to further make the decision easier we will be offering only 904L Stainless Steel or the upgradable option of an 18K solid gold case.
No Future Stock Availability
Discontinued After Production
Many have asked just how many watches we plan to make and if they will be limited to one production run. Our most audacious goal would be 500 pieces and to date we have pre-purchased a few hundred movements for this project. However we will only produce the amount of watches sold from the total of our pre-orders. This means we will only have one production cycle and when the projects pre-orders are complete and the one an only production finished we will not produce anymore of these watches. There will be no stock of the watch and it will be discontinued after production. By doing so we believe it will return greater future value for our hobbyists and collectors alike.
We look forward to you joining us for the VIP pre-order starting February 29th 2020!
Till next time…
