    Sorry if it's already been asked.
    I'd buy one for my Expedition if they were on offer. I don't think the question has been asked.
    Exclusion is at the root of their success

    Been away for awhile and hadn't heard of these (or hadn't remembered that maybe I HAD at some point) until I got the e-mail. Now, after seeing this pic (OK, and the video) I'm going to have to try and grab one.

    That music reminds me of Unreal Tournament 2004 just after you've dispatched the baddies and you're waiting for the next level to load.

    Watch looks top notch.

    Eddie has said before that they will be available separately (in limited numbers) but not just yet.

    Silver Jubilee Everest



    The jubilee changes the watch so much. Would love to get me one. Any idea when these will be available to buy separately?

    I though there was a maximum number of orders that can be taken per 2-week session - 200 I think; so you may be in luck next time?

    The system had dropped all my details from the last time I'd failed to buy one. Or was it the time before? I went through the motions, but I'm gratified to know it would have been pointless even if I hadn't. It's good for Timefactors, which has got to be a good thing in the big picture, but...

    Eddie said he caps orders at about 200 per opening session, so a maximum of 200 orders could have been placed. That covers not just the high-demand items but low-demand watches, straps, etc.

    So there are definitely more Silver Jubilees to be sold.

    I'm not so sure about the Monopushers though.

    I know the store only opens for a short time but is it always less than three minutes? That was faster than I expected.

    It's volume-limited. I understand from what he has said previously that Eddie can ship roughly 200 items in the time he has to take credit card payments after purchase authorisation, so he keeps the shop open for as long as it takes to rack up 200 orders. Nowadays that seems to be about 3 minutes!

    A common problem. Looks like eBay will be as busy as ever.

    Fast closing saved me from getting told off by the missus. I bought 2 watches yesterday and was in the store when the shutters came down. Every cloud etc

    When you buy sought after Albert Hall tickets, people can pinch them even when they're in your basket and not paid for. Its a war out there

    I had a monopusher in the basket but decided against it as I was just getting carried away with the theatre of it all

    Hoping to get that silver jubilee on the next batch. I'm just one of the many who tried but failed.

  39. #189
    Maybe not as versatile as the satin black dial but I think this one is very very special and a great way for Eddie to celebrate 25 years selling watches on the net. That jubilee finishes it off perfectly. Speaking of which any idea when itís available separately?

    Indeed, every dial will have its own uniqueness too. Curious to see the variations in dial colour, more blue or more black. What strap colours would this pair well with? 🤔

    Similar to others, I pressed buy at one second past 2pm & it showed in my cart, but by the time I got to the shipping page it was showing as sold out. It was 2:01

    I think the title of this thread should perhaps be "Gone in 60 seconds".

    I agree. I love the sparkly dial but I just can't see myself wearing it, whereas the normal black dial goes with everything. Will definitely be in for a jubilee bracelet when available, but what I really want is a normal clasp (plus the two links that attach to it) for the original "Oyster" bracelet .. the one with the chunky ratcheting clasp that didn't have faux rivets etc etc. That bracelet was perfect ... apart from the clasp ... :-)

    Eddie said to me that he has an 8.5" wrist and removes two links.

    You can have my place next time as I won't be able to do it due to work.

    Yeah he responded to my email as well regarding the links. Sounds great to me since I have the same wrist size.

    Has anyone got any idea how many of the jubilee Everestís are left?

    It has to be more than 300 of the max 500 run still available (even if not yet received in stock from the manufacturer).

    As a minimum Iíd say. If there were 50 of each monopusher, and they are sold out, and Eddie only takes a maximum of 200 orders, then I assumed a large percentage of the remaining 100 orders were the Jubilee Everestís. So plenty left. Only one person can say for certain thoughÖ.
