    Ordering today, 13 September

    I expected as many as 400 orders today, it's now standing at 661. All the 36mm Everests are gone, the Expedition and white dial are almost gone and all the 40mm Everest are gone.

    Looking at the RomanCart stock control (it's a joke), it appears that it accepted 69 more orders for the 36mm Everest than I have stock, 11 more 40mm Everest than I have stock and 8 more Air Ministry than I have stock. After I complained last time it happened, they said they had built in a feature which checked stock in real time before completing an order but that appears not to have worked. It will take me hours to extract and notify those orders for whom there is no stock.

    It could take up to 40 days to ship all orders so please be patient.

    Eddie

    Congratulations on your sales success - and sorry to hear of your issues

    It makes you wonder what will happen when the Navigator becomes available...

    Thanks for your hard work Eddie, I've had an elevated heart-rate since I woke up this morning - very exciting day.
    God luck with all the orders.

    Eddie, Tks for update. Any chance for another run of the 36 mm black Everest? I had mine in a cart but something went wrong at checkout and when I got back in again it was out of stock..

    Congratulations Eddie! Mad and great at the same time.

    Maybe you should be placing the second order for the Navigator about now.

    Is there any other brand around that is so sought after and so difficult to buy?!

    Wow over 600 orders! That is amazing. Last time it was about 275 when the Baby series had just launched. To get more than double this time around is impressive.

    Congrats on a successful sale day, Eddie. Though I sincerely hope I'm not one of the few who get bumped.

    It was like being in at the kill for something that you really wanted on eBay.

    I got through at 14.00 exactly & managed to order a Baby Dreadnought to go with my full size Dreadnought (PRS2)..at least I'm hoping that my order went through because I only received a confirmation email from Sage Pay, not one from Time Factors as well. If you don't get the latter does it mean that the order didn't go through?

    Halios and Lorier are 2 that come to mind and each make really nice watches and have quite the following but then there is Eddie and TimeFactors which I believe have the best following because his watches are just that good.

    Be pissed if thats the case as it says at the top of the Sage email that "your timefactors order has been successful"

    Fingers crossed

    I received both one from sage and one from time factors confirming my order.

    I have a confirmation email from 14:02 so hopefully the order is fulfilled. Good luck to those who placed an order, especially those who ordered a model where the orders exceed supply.

    Frustrating, but a testament to a much loved watch company.

    I am hoping I made the cut. I received my first confirmation email for the Everest 36mm black dial at 14:10, but someone posted here in the forums at 14:15 that it was out of stock. If 25 were sold per minute, which is just my rough guess, I should be ok. If not, oh well. Best of luck to everyone, and thanks to Eddie as always!

    Some shift Eddie. Good on ye. Appreciate it might take some time to get these out, but meantime it would be good to know if I made the cut for the 36 black Everest.

    What does it mean if I didn't get mail from Timefactors but did from sagepay about successful payment at 14:02?

    Well that's a bit of a blow, I got both emails through (Sage & Timefactors) @ 14.02pm and have checked my bank and the funds have been withdrawn so I am hoping I was one of the lucky ones, with this being my first purchase from Eddie, I have always managed to miss the boat on previous sales.

    So I'm guessing no news will be good news from Eddie, fingers crossed.

    Check your spam folder. When I ordered the PRS 68, the Timefactors confirmation went in spam while the sagepay one went to my inbox.

    Same here. Had crazy expenses last month but saved extra for this order just in case. I would be devastated Tbh.

    Hopefully you'll all be successful.

    Try not to be rude if you're not one of the blessed.

    You know EP is doing his best and hopefully you'll get what you want. Which is more than Mick Jagger did.

    Is that a cultural reference that I (being young) don't understand, or is there a TF story there?

    I tried to get one... Khuraburi in their last sale and spend 46 seconds filling out a form and when I clicked "Proceed" they were sold out...
    200 watches in less than a minute!

    I did manage to get in a succesful order for a baby dreaddie tho :D And it looks like they weren't on the list Eddie wrote so looking forward to getting it!

    Not a single mail from Timefactors nor in spam.
    Should I hope or had no luck again?

    I'd say if you got your purchase completed by 14:02, you have grounds for optimism.

    Same with me today, Sageplay notification went to my inbox and the Timefactors confirmation went to my spam folder. A fraught afternoon and evening has ended well. Many Thanks 'SussexScots' for the pointer in the right direction.

    Yup, indeed.
    Sagepay confirmation received 14:01 and creditcard charged for GBP 353,00 but no Timefactors confirmation received in mailbox.
