    Iíd happily pre-finance one of these. Iím not sure how many others would too.

    I know itís a different model to the norm here but it would (if successful during the fundraising stage) eliminate the risk of unsold stock.

    Side benefit would be the elimination of frenzied and competitive purchasing (for these models) come 2pm on Sundays.

    Having said all this, the pipeline of new projects looks to be rather full right now, maybe not the easiest time to be trying something new.

    If you are left with spare dials, then may I respectfully suggest that you have an obvious Everest dial variant - the one that was actually used on Everest:



    Which I suspect might be a trifle popular. If not then please let me know if there are any dial samples going begging and I'll do it myself!

    Pre-finance is a good idea too... Just not sure if there is enough people here who are ready to commit

    I'd pay up front too.

    Me too! Sign me up for (at least one) black waffle dial. Really hope this watch sees the light of day.

    I do too, especially the aventurine dial version.

    To echo one thing that someone said previously, though: For aesthetic purposes the bolt heads should either be obviously randomly placed (i.e. far off symmetric) or precisely symmetrically placed. Having them just slightly off-symmetric would appear like an error.

    Hi Eddie,

    any chance that this model is still in your pipeline?
