    from the visit today

    ok had a long chat, thought i'd let those wondering what the story is from the harrods point of view

    harrods originally agreed with tudor to make 100 numbered as a special edition
    the feedback was so good tudor increased this to 175, the extra 75 mainly being rolex and tudor people who wanted one or promo pieces for magazine editors as they're using it to help push tudor in the uk
    so they will make 175 not all 175 will go to harrods so far they have received 69 ( i never understand this surely they made the whole 175 in one run), apparently the weekend it was made public they had 400 people contact them to put their name down to buy the piece

    so they have sold the number they had many times over so tudor have offered to make more, they are not sure if they will be the same or numbered but the feeling is they will be less to promote tudor and more to promote harrods, they think they will probably be different and probably won't be numbered but nothing is 100% certain, its more a reaction of this was a much bigger success then they expected for them

    interestingly they still have people phoning up for the green panerai harrods special edition- but they can't shift the blue one, so just repeating the formula doesn't necessarily repeat the success so they are worried about the people who have put their name down for the limited edition version may not want the non limited edition version but figure compared to the other watches they sell, it'll be cheap enough a lot of overseas people will buy one to show where they've been in the uk so no matter what can sell them and so that pushes it more towards more harrods branding

    Thanks for the summary!

    Much needed I think due to the amount of questionable facts people were throwing into this forum

    I did tell you the Head of Tudor UK said it wasnít a limited edition and would make as many as Harrods wanted.

    Do you think Harrods was only going to sell 100 if it can sell 500+ easily and with their branding on? They are not idiots...

    I'm just basically happy for tudor who have got a success on their hands. I don't care if they milk it, it's a nice watch. Looking forward to the hello kitty LE.

    I guess that some younger members of the forum will be wondering what on earth you are talking about. :)

    Green is Rolex branding colour but also a strong military shade and refreshingly different like a nicely faded LV feel to it but with the added bonus of green writing and hand tip.
