    Amen to all the above.

    Lost my pants in Grimsby once, not a nice experience

    Even half a childhood in Hull hadn't prepared me for Grimsby.

    Some of the comments on this thread are quite amusing, where common sense seems to have taken a walk. This is quite a nice watch, and anyone wanting one should get one, as for the comments on this being a 6k watch or at near 5k good value.... then clearly there is more going on and people arenít silly.

    Iím told one of these was very recently available at t3 duty free, so under 2k and they passed as they didnít like it, which is the right thing to do, let someone else who does have it. I suspect before too long you will be able to get one along with the customary beefeater teddy and green bag, all good stuff really.

    The reason people want this is because itís effectively Tudorís answer to the Rolex Hulk and these have become virtually unobtainable, trading used just shy of £10k. Tudor will stop producing them (much sooner than we imagine) and move onto other things, therefore I fully expect this Harrods version to appreciate quickly and and in a similar fashion to the Hulk. This watch not only has very good investment potential but looks nice as well.

    The price is £2630.00 And with harrods you will get £355 back from global blue so the total is £2275! Just fyi which is exactly what i got for mine! Tho i got mine from Harrods and not duty free!

    Thanks for sharing, still not a 6k watch, not limited, despite whatís been said here. So people should be aware these are coming through, donít get suckered in by the hype machine

    Surely though itís derivative of its own brand.

    It's basically the Tudor version of the 16610LV. It's not very original in any way. That's OK. The original LV's are too expensive for many and the new ceramic version is... not nice looking.

    Right see your point. Obviously a lot of people love the ceramics but have to say not to my taste.

    Agreed but still looks great. Better than the majority of black bays

    Iíd like to know this too. Iíd like one of these, but not if the market gets flooded with unnumbered ones.

    Does this waiting Ďlistí exist at all? Iím beginning to think they wonít produce anymore once the initial batch has been snapped up.

    Thatís the problem with fictional waiting lists. You provide them with your name and other details in good faith, thinking you might eventually obtain the watch you desire, only for Harrods to put it straight in the bin.

    I think the guys at Harrods are very fair and they would let you know when your numbers up but they probably need clarity on production numbers to be accurate
