    Unless Eddie has changed his mind since an e-mail exchange a few weeks back, he's not taking reservations for the first batch that arrives.

    I remember those deliberations over different elements to the design Crusader, It was great.

    The proposed model looks great and has wonderful features. Really looking forward to it too.

    Best wishes,

    AP. :) 8)

    I hope it's optional. Plain black leather for me on this one. VERY plain.

    Me too. I would never use the bracelet, so would prefer not to pay for it.

    And I refuse to ask for a number... :wink:

    This is ridiculous! Number 13 please!! Failing that, number 15, or 4!!! I might just buy three of the little devils anyway. :?

    That may well be the case but is anyone prepared to risk it until Eddie himself has confirmed.

    Would love to be on any list (for any number) just as long as I can get this beautiful looking watch as soon as possible.

    I am. I'll proceed to checkout when the website says 'In Stock'. If they run out fast, I'll wait until they're back in stock.

    I also refuse to quicken my pace when boarding easyJet flights. :wink:

    Are you crazy? I'd beat Linford Christie across the tarmac to be on first to grab one those exit-row seats.

    Granted I am new to this forum and I'm not sure if I'm breaking with protocol but put me down for one of these... with leather strap if at all possible.

    Awesome looking watch.

    In the specs it mentions "LE / LE indication" and also that it is going to be a regular production watch. Will there be two versions or just a limited number of one version?

    Most interested in this one.

    I don't quite understand what's going on here :? But if there is a limited number of these, I'd be up for any number that's available (especially #98 :lol: )

    I thought this was a non-le watch - has this changed?

    Will there be any problem getting additional movements?

    And now the inevitable ... Is there a list for the first 50? If so, could my name go on it please?
    Er ... bump, just in case? :D

    Augh... if it's LE, I'd like to request a spot on the list, whatever the number.

    Thanks, Eddie. :)

    When did this watch become a limited edition?

    In that case count me in. Number immaterial.

    IIRC the watch isn't a limited edition per se, but the number of movments available for production batches is, so that it is in effect an LUE, a limited unlimited edition.

    No. 48 for me, or any number will do (I believe we have been through that number thing before.) :D
    Cheers,

    There where a lot who had not yet a specific number - that's why I put up the list to get things in some teutonic order. :D

    What a lark this is. :D

    First we have a regular production model (where serial numbers are of no real consequence) that morphs into a kind of limited edition.

    Then we find we have to sign up, rather than simply buy it from the website (personally, I would have waited for a second batch if the first sold out before I got there).

    Then we are encouraged to nominate a number when we don't care what number we get.

    But as I think I said once before, I also refuse to quicken my pace when boarding easyJet flights.

    Frank - randomly allocate me a number if it aids your list. :lol:
