    Sunday 7th

    I suspect there was a PRS-25 fest happening today!
    Hopefully order secured for a gilt dial - I checked back after placing the order and at 14.02 it looked like Eddie's quota had been reached.

    Well my first go at the new format but I think I'm in, though the cart button didn't switch for me from stating order fulfilled until 14:01 despite numerous re-freshens.

    Tail end order by the looks of it with no. 1353

    I think I managed to get a gilt Everest.
    Anyway I saw people posting their order number and I saw #1193 and #1550: was it not supposed to be just 200 orders?

    Both the Original and Gilt dialled now showing as sold out on the site. That was some burst of activity on the Everest pages.

    If the system was only restricted to 200 sales then itíll be interesting to see what the distribution is!

    Yours must be one of the first orders! I was as fast as I possibly could (the "add to cart" button didn't show up right away) and I managed to get a gilt order #1224 :)

    I thought the new platform was able to stop orders at 200 and not let anymore through , so Eddie doesnít end up having to cancel any ?

    Same here.

  19. #19
    Missed it due to me having to put my billing address in. Had everything pre saved to auto fill and that with the billing address being different to my actual address messed me up ☹️ Does that mean there are no more gilt or regular dials Eddie for the next opening? Or will you have some more available?

    I hope the orders placed will be valid.

    I have bought an Everest - Non gilt.

    I'd hate to get an email later saying otherwise.

    It would also be a pain and loads of extra work for Eddie too.

    Likewise in not getting the add to cart button at 14:00 (according to the PC), took nearly a minute of repeating re-fresh to get were I could start my order at 14:01 and completing 14:02, so ending up with #1353.

    My order seem to go through all right, and is showing on the site (no. 1466), but I didnít get an confirmation email. Should I be worried?

    It was supposed to but it let 567 through, I suspect it's something to do with speed of ordering but I'll be talking to them.

    That was an early one, the last ones were in the 1700s.

    Many thanks Eddie appreciate the reply; at the time of writing I was thinking of the original 200 orders you had previously mentioned, not realising the website had got carried away with itself yet again.

    There's a thread running on Watchuseek casting doubt that I took 567 orders in 3 minutes last Sunday.

    https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/s...ctors.5279096/

    All the orders are numbered sequentially, the first order on Sunday was #1186 and the last order was #1752. This makes the total number of orders 566, not the 567 I stated and certainly not the 597 posted on WUS. A good number of orders are for more than one watch.

    Can people post their order numbers to show that the spread of numbers bears out my statement?

    Mine is for one PRS-25 gilt in the 1460's. Pretty much in the middle.

    Just followed the link Eddie posted and while I only skim read a few posts I would disagree with the comments from my own experience. Fairly new to this forum and TF but have been more than happy with how Timefactors work and the support I've received if and when needed.

    14:02 Order #1353 for two watches

    Still waiting patiently for notification of dispatch but I am 163 on the list; 'Don't Tell Him Pike'

    I'm not a subsciber there but I do hope that those of us who are can go and have a word with that guy 'thegamblershand':

    https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/5.../post-53006623

    I donít believe the numbers given out in terms of sales to be the honest amount sold.
    He doesn't think that's 'slander' - and he's correct. But it is libel.

    From the thread OP:

    "Thatís good to hear... after hearing peopleís thoughts and opinions Iím happy to say I have maybe been proved wrong and my initial questioning of Eddie and Timefactors was me being too presumptuous. 566 orders is a hell of a lot. I guess Eddie would do well to hire some help and manufacture more pieces. But thatís his decision to make."

    Point taken

    This Shopify screenshot shows cart activity for the top 3 products. Although it says it covers 14 days, you all know I was only open for 3 minutes in the last 14 days. Of course, not everyone who had an item in their cart was able to complete the transaction. As well as the top 3, the "Baby" range and others also sold well with at least 20 people ordering 2 watches and one person ordered 4. I don't exaggerate the number of orders I receive.
