    Still love the green accents, but that bloody riveted bracelet just keeps holding me back. Drove me to sell by black version.
    Iím sure you could swap a riveted for an eta one or just wear it on leather

    Remember the days when this Tudor was supposedly a limited run of only 100 pieces and grey dealers had them marked up for over double RRP.

    The bucherer blue bronze bay has recently discontinued I think, didn't that start up at a similar time to the Harrods BB? Maybe suggesting the Harrods will discontinue soon ish? 3000 would be a round number to end. Purely guessing of course.

    Can they wait until I've had my kitchen fitted and I've had the call on my BB before they discontinue please.

    Still waiting on the call :(

    I picked one up last week on behalf of an American friend who couldn't get over, (they won't post). I was in there no more than 10 minutes and three people asked to be put on the list. They were quoted around 6 months lead time.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of them at all. Too slab sided.

    I picked mine up last week, just 7 weeks or so after I first put my name down. I think it helped that I was in contact with the guy throughout this time. I sent him a message 2 weeks ago asking if he was around and if I could drop by for a chat (I was also interested in the BB58 if the Harrods one had been too difficult to get.) Didn't make it that week but the week after he messaged me to go to Harrods.. apparently there was a cancellation and I got mine right there.

    I was told that they are getting much less stock now than a few months ago.. The demand is still crazy - at least 2 or 3 people asked about the watch while I was there.

    It's really a gorgeous watch, especially under warm lighting I think. I much prefer this than the Kermit (for example) - I think the green is a lot more subtle and the symmetry is much better without a date window.

    Here's a quick picture:) It's around 2650 when I picked this up btw!

    Cheers

    I was told that they are doing a run of 88 for the Thai market with a ruby red dial. I've got my name down for one with the AD in Chiang Mai. Let's see if A it materialises and B if it is restricted to 88

    if you're in the area its def worth a try but I suspect you would come away disappointed. I was in harrods over the weekend. In their for less than half an hour and two people came in asking for the harrods black bay. Both told they needed to join the waiting list which was quoted as a 3 -4 month wait.

    Yeah, given someone in the thread was able to get it on walk-in I might do. Wonder if they Ďselectí the customers to sell to, so if you look like a tourist and inquire about the watch without some conversation they might just turn you away? Just my 2cents

    In there yesterday and spoke to a young sales assistant called Sara. Very friendly and helpful, she got the display watch out for me to try on which was nice, previously I'd been told it never comes out the display but then I'm noticing the tudor desk seems to get the younger and 'still learning' staff so there's variation in helpfulness.
    I was told the wait is currently about 6-8 months.

    I viewed and chatted about the pelagos at the same time

    Hiya Neil , I believe the 6-8 months is a generic reply , the quickest way I believe is too put your name on the list then follow up with a couple of emails/calls. It really is a beautiful piece in my eyes and the little gold detailing does stand out .

    They've a display model, in a wall mounted cabinet opposite the Tudor area on the Lowe Ground floor of Harrods. The watch looks lovely, to me a much nicer shade of green to the Submariners.

    I meant the watch in the glass counter that is the tudor counter. When i was in there 6 months ago they said ' that can't be touched, its display only' but yesterday Sara just got it straight out an put it on a tray on the counter for me to try on when I said i was interested in it. It helped to see it on your wrist and get a feel for the colour against your skin. the Harrods 'swamp green' is actually very nice

    18 months ago Harrods was actively trying to stop the flipping of this watch. They had a customer on the waiting list who tried on the display model, he took a wrist shot of him wearing the display model then listed it on Chrono24. That unfortunately put pay to others trying it on.

    slightly flawed approach though, a flipper can take a wrist shot once he or she has the watch. Anyway I was pleasantly surprised that the policy seems to be different now.

    Friend managed to help me buy one on a walk in but the salesperson needed some convincing. I've posted some pictures in my thread (but trying to fix them cause they don't seem to be working?!)

    Number on mine is in the 2750s as confirmed by another member - bought the watch yesterday fyi.

    I'm so happy but have already posted here:

    Makes a mockery of Harrods' 'list'. Nice for the new owner, but infuriating for the people who've put their names down and are patiently waiting for the call.

    Yes I do understand and have had doubts before posting, but thought itís best for me to be transparent as I think someone else was also curious about whether these can be obtained by walking in, as well as where we are with the production number.

    I think they have probably sold more of these than regular Tudors now! Poor form

    Unlikely. I believe even the Pelagos LHD is well over 7000 now.
    It's just a matter of time...

    That is frustrating to those that are on the supposed list, but hey hoo.

    2750? They have come through with 100+ in the last fortnight then, that's a lot more per week than the previous few months. Hmm, time to email Hannah.

    Not sure what is going on with the numbering but my friend picked up number 2755 a couple of weeks ago...The admin side of this at Harrods could def be improved!

    Ahh yes, looking back through the thread I now see someone collecting a 2750ish watch 2 weeks ago. Either the 2650ish collection was a typo or it sat in the drawer at Harrods 'lost' for a month!

    Mine's 2754, so they definitely mixed up the numbers... I wonder if it's actually possible to choose serial numbers if they have a few in stock? Probably too much to ask for!

    Yeap that's correct, also comes with the fabric strap so more value than a normal BB.

    I've seen a 2650+ watch purchased mid June too. so there is definitely some sort of mix up, with the highest of numbers still being 2750ish.

    There was a price rise a couple of months ago. It was £2630 when I collected mine in March but they are now £2670.
