    Green. The most natural colour.

    As it has 'special edition' on the caseback I would have thought we will see plenty more than 100 pieces

    Lovely shade of green, which compliments the black face. Stunning...

    Perhaps a silly question and apologies if it is, but where are these available as I couldnít see it on the Harrods website?

    Give the watch room a call at harrods & they will probably tell you to call back next year.

    Harrods green black bay

    Hi all! just wondering whether the guys who are lucky enough to have got their names down for the first batch of 100 have been contacted by harrods yet? I read on another forum that the first 50 have arrived and I'm surprised that some haven't immediately been flipped!

    Thanks

    Clasp is a bit plain and a bit ugly for my liking. I guess the nato partially makes up for that

    Really! I suppose the Rivetted bracelet more than makes up for it! I wouldnít use the Tudor Black NATO much preferring a TZ or MS one in Black or Tan or Olive Green

    Besides the hour hand that is a great watch, what's the chance of getting one?

    Very high, a) if you are prepared to pay a crazy premium; and possibly b) if you wait and see if it will be a regular special edition for Harrods in the same way as the blue BB Bronze is for Bucherer.
    It's just a matter of time...

  15. #165
    Agreed. Riveted bracelet looks ace

    That clasp though. Not befitting of this watch

    All that said, I should reserve judgment until I see one in a day or two. I'll be back!

    Crazy premium? It's nice but it's something only say a few dozen people have actually bought and handled yet. What premium do you expect there to be?

    I can't see there being a crazy premium on this one. Maybe 1k on a good day (for the flipper). 2k if you buy from some Mayfair watch boutique or Instagram sensation or similar.

    You don't regard a £1000 premium on a watch that costs £2630 'crazy'? In % terms isn't that beating the likes of the current DSSD?

    And almost as good as the 50% premium on a Steel Daytona!

    I guess its all down to opinion and preference, but its a rather sweeping statement to say that a certain colour doesn't "work" on a certain object...

    ... do all Ferraris need to be red? All Bugattis blue? All Astons green and all lamborghinis... erm... is it yellow??

    Most of those cars do look best in those colours, I saw a purple Aston the other day.
    Horrid the lines looked all wrong.

    I donít Like the Harrods special either, give me the red or black any day.
    But it doesnít matter we canít all like the same.

    I like that clasp, simple but functional. I don't really like large fussy clasps, especially when they start to get way out of proportion like some recent rolex and omega ones.

    Well, why don't you ask how much someone is willing to sell you one for and see if you think the premium over rrp is crazy or not. I doubt you'll get one for only £1k over list in the next month.
    It's just a matter of time...

    It works perfectly well for a lot of people, and that's all that matters for the sales of this model. It doesn't need your approval or endorsement to make it a sales success, it will be one anyway.

    The reason that some of those cars are associated with those colours is absolutely nothing to do with their appearance...

    ...you just dont like purple astons - personal opinion.

    Will this lead to other collaborations,

    Orange dial = Sainsbury's anyone?

    Perhaps a Poundland Timex?

    It's probably the same guy who paid Watchfinder £10k for their first Speedy Tuesday. Bragging rights come at a cost

    Discussion in Harrods today suggested this model is likely to have a future beyond the original limited run.

  33. #183
    Now that is good news for people who want one at list. They were always going to do this, itís printing money.

    People should stop paying premiums/above rrp for these watches to what are basically parasites.
    The people who do this profiteering are no better than ticket touts and should be treated as such.

    Its got everything to do with appearance.. As well as the team heritage and racing colours.

    It is a nice watch in the flesh, suits the green
    i have a mate who works in the watches salons in harrods

    first special edition will be 100- regular edition to follow will be 50 a year as they figure they can keep that rolling for several years at that rate without ever having one on show that's "not reserved"
    also total package for regular production will be slightly different ie aimed more at the people who like harrods as a brand rather then those who like tudor black bay as a brand

    Does your mate know if the subsequent 50 a year will be numbered or not?
