    I was afraid of that. Rules me out. The domed acrylic is just far too much of a door magnet on my wrist. I have to treat my PRS 53 so carefully and have already put a scrape in my PRS-5. :?

    Edit. Just noticed my post count is palindromic. I may never post again...

    i dont think this will stand proud like the 5 though, it looks like a wrist hugger.

    I'm guessing that shipping so many different models would require more hours of sobriety per day than Eddie is willing to commit to.

    I've resolved to a whiskey diet since New Year. It's working a treat, I've lost six days already.

    Almost the inverse of the MKii experience, watch completed, demand in place and customers hovering over 'add to basket', just need them to arrive!

    Wonder how many paid preorders would cover Eddies cash flow to get them in....

    I don't think the delay is because of cash flow but the manufacturer's speed challenge.

    Re: CAF update

    Well, given the time passed since the original CAF proposal - years - it must be worthwhile or we'd have given up by now!

    or, based on the stanford marshmallow experiment, the capacity to wait for something desired is a sign of good emotional intelligence and an indicator of success in life.

    Wow!!! Now that we have waited for ten years, does it mean we can get two CAFs for the price of one? :bounce:

    I won't take them into stock before 1 April, I don't want to increase the value of stock for the end of year tax return. The self-employed on this forum will understand :wink: .

    Indeed. Although 'taking into stock' and actually having the items in my possession didn’t always coincide IIRC. :wink:

    Distinctly remember working in a midlands car manufacturer where volumes of material were put on trucks just before the annual stocktake and told to drive round Birmingham while the stocktake was done.

    In the spirit of the forum, I'd be happy to look after a CAF during the stocktake...
