    Keep your chin up, I put mine down end of October 2018, and got my email end of January 2019

    When she out my name down, they said 2 year wait list. I have no idea how or why I got it so fast, but payment has been sent and Iím just waiting at this point for confirmation of that, and then have a friend picking it up for me.

    I got my name down end of September and have heard nothing yet. There seems to be little order in how they allocate watches.

    Absolutely agreed!

    Well, I finally found out Iíll be #1599 (which I think is an awesome number) not for an specific reason, other then for some reason it just seems like a good number. Unique I guess.

    Very excited, she said itís ready for collection, only thing is my friend wont collect until 2/9 and wonít be back stateside until 2/17 so February is going to stink. lol


    Not my picture, itís from the gram, but adding another

    That's a fine green selection. Price now is down to around retail, remember at first when the Harrods was priced at £8k by some ebay chancers.

    Thatís when most of us mistakenly believed Harrods/Tudor were only going to produce 100 or so of them. How times change...🙄

    Yup altho I have used that phrase mostly with the opposite meaning as we've seen prices climb mercilessly on Rolexes and Pateks.

    I have a friend who put his name down 2 months ago and received an email this week to say that his watch was in store ready to be collected within 7 days.

    He has no prior purchase history.

    That's strange isn't it? It should be a ladder so to speak, where new enquiries get added o to the bottom.

    I'd love to know how it actually works?

    Good to see the green watches in a line. My preference would be Hulk, Kermit & then the Harrods watch

    It is strange, but it seems that it can be a bit all over the place it terms of allocation.

    I put my name down yesterday and they told me the wait is getting shorter and is only around 4-6 months now.

    Collected mine Yesterday. Quite a few people in collecting.

    Sadly the Harrods experience wasn't what id call Luxury.

    They’re far too busy for a luxury experience, especially at “lower end” brands like Tudor.

    I wanted to look at a Cartier bracelet for my wife and visited twice whilst I was in the area. I had to join a waiting list with someone carrying a clipboard just to be seen and to see the bracelet out of the cabinet .....I waited and waited and left both times without even getting to speak to someone.....and that was for a £10k Cartier diamond bracelet.

    There should still be some sort of experience when buying a watch from Harrods.

    Was a lot of standing around a cabinet waiting. You get better experience from goldsmiths.

    You went the same day my friend did, wonder if you guys saw each other. His associate was Hannah, I know Oscar was there in the evening.

    He said he had a great experience.

    What did you not like about yours?

    Maybe I was expecting too much. But I wasn't expecting to stand around by a cabinet for an hour or so mainly on my own by a busy door of people coming and going. I felt a bit on edge when the watch was on the counter tops.

    All unboxing and removal of stickers was done out of sight.

    Was offered a drink but dint even have still water.

    The person who served me was really friendly and knowledgeable so he scores high points for this.

    But the over all experience was lacking and not luxury. A seat would have been nice and everything done in-front of me.

    I might go and prod them one lunchtime this week or next and see if that speeds things along. It shouldn't really, but others have reported success when hassling them.

    I would, I think my emails and a few phone calls helped to be honest. I emailed customer service to email them, I emailed a contact in Tudor Harrods, and I called Harrods Tudor to talk to someone.

    Not being sarcastic. Was curious why it was posted on a Tudor thread is all. So

    Seiko looks horrible in my eyes, to busy.

    (Start another thread next time)

    And I guess wait times just keep bouncing around.

    Fingers crossed for everyone else waiting to get one.

    I should have mine by this weekend, or Monday next week.

    I managed to pick mine up today; itís very very nice, with colour/size/weight all spot on. Stupidly I wore my Sub down, so had to leave the new one in its box. As I think has been said, the Harrods bag is a little ostentatious. For those, like me, who visit a few pubs on their way back to Euston - I just put mine in a Pret bag and ditched the Green bag.

    Getting your name on the waiting list really does seem a lottery. I put my name down beginning of january and was told an 18 month wait. I wasnt convinced by the bloke I spoke to so my wife put her name down a couple fo weeks later. My wife got the email today saying one is available. So i'm off to collect tomorrow. Obviously I'm pleased to be getting the watch so soon just not very impressed with the process!

    my colleague at work got the call yesterday - He put an order in mid-January. He has 48 hrs to reply and they are keeping the stickers etc for a year. He is paying for it today.

    They didn't keep the warranty card but removed all stickers off the watch when I collected mine on Saturday. They advised this was now standard procedure upon collection of the watch.

    Sorry I checked - he gets the card but the stickers come off. He doesn't care as it isn't going to get moved on (for a while)
