    That's the reason why they always arrive late in Berlin/Schönefeld!

    Anyhow the number-thing is presumably causing to much work for Eddie anyway, I think we just want to be on that first 50 NonLE-run.

    (You know what happens always with these NonLe here, no? :twisted: )

    And interestingly, the allocation of a number has given me a curious sense of security and satisfaction.

    I'm much, much madder than I thought I was. :(

    But what a lovely number, 26. It hadn't struck me before, but it really is the very best number. :lol:

    Someday I'll learn how to write a question in an unambiguous way.

    You mean no 2892 or still a possibility (no no longer)? :)

    Yes it is lovely, I've got a PRS-20LE no. 26 & a PRS-50LE no.26...
    .
    Since there isn't anything official from our host, I was holding off
    from joining the feeding frenzy that seems to be occurring until
    there was something official...

    It seems that he who hesitates is indeed lost. Enjoy no.26...

    Any number for me but preferably one with a 7 in.

  11. #161
    Have we determined that there is indeed a list? If there is, I would love to be on it (number doesn't matter). If not, I'll be keen to click "Add to Cart" on the day.

    This is a first post after much lurking on the forum and I have to say you are all crazy (in the best way :D ).

    I signed up for the forum because of my interest in this watch and now I have no idea whether it is a limited edition by design or availability :? . So this probably breaks with all etiquette of the forum but I soooo do not want to miss out on this. So if there is such a thing as a list please put me on it. Any number would be great but 47 if it would make things easier.

    I have sucummed to the feeding frenzy :lol:

    You are entirely within the rules of etiquette. Welcome to the madness!

    Had you registered solely for the purpose of selling something however, you'd have been hanged, drawn, and quartered.

    I have also been lurking, mainly because of this watch. I'm an American from California.

    Have a look at the first post on the first page of this thread.
    The mechanical design indicates an ETA 2824-2, reason why I asked before if the 2892-2 was still an option (and couldn't be sure of Eddie's answer, due to my dubious way of putting the question, although I'm inclined to think he meant the 2892 is no longer an option). :?

    The original plan was to use the 2892 but that movement cannot be easily sourced. That's why the specification changed and now the 2824-2 is what will be used. The 2892 is not an option.

    Thanks, as allways good (lower price) and bad (less exclusive) news, the balance will be positive, even or negative depending on personal perceptions.
    Anyway I'm in, it's a beautifull watch. :)

    Not trying to reserve a number, just noting that I updated the spec to match the thickness reflected in the mechanical drawing.

    I've been a long time lurker of this forum and as it looks
    as though the SB3 is about to materialise I would like to
    reserve one, any number will do.

    Many thanks,
    Iain

    P.S Shouldn't the watch forum be called 'Tick Talk' :lol:

    Many thanks Henrik for your warm welcome.

    No Timefactors watches (yet!) but I have an Omega 53/6B, an Archimedes
    Flieger (which I really like), a CWC G10, plus an assortment of Seiko 5's,
    Submariner look-a-likes and the odd Timex and Casio quartz watch.

    So nothing special I'm afraid, but each one had some feature I liked at the
    time - I'll never rest until I find the perfect watch (the SB3 could be it! :D )

    Ach!

    I was resisting well for a while there as, as far as I can tell, there is no need to put yourself down for a number (is there??) but now that Abraxas has done the deed...

    I'd like one of these, Eddie.

    As far as I knew this watch was going to be unlimited, so I didn't bother putting my name down, but the way the situation is now where the unlimited are more limited than the limited, we better make sure the ground is covered. I would really like this watch, especially if it's not going to be less than 39mm. In fact, 39mm with 20mm lugs would be ideal. :wink:

    Oh boy... here I've been checking on SB3 progress almost daily for months - and after a three week vacation I find out you guys have started a list? :lol:

    If there were to be such a thing as a list - can I please have #29? Thanks so much!

    Hi John,

    I wrote you down for #2 - you had stated that before :D

    By the way for the professional collectors who are building up complete sets with fitting
    numbers - 30, 40 and 50 are still free anybody knows who would need them especially?

    All the others, the list is on page 10 of this thread, please klick here , I added the requested numbers.

    Beware: This list is completely un-official, and I put it up just in case another Eddie Non-LE gets a LE :D

    I suppose Eddie will sell it on a "first-come-first-serve" basis.


    Cheerio, Frank

    Yup I'm a taker too. Love the sterile dial and clean lines.

    Put me done for an LE. Any number will do! Thanks.

    hi gregflat9,

    i put your name on the list as well but beware: This is not a LE!

    (But of course we have seen Non-LEs getting rarer than LEs :) )
