I saw a couple threads about this watch but wanted to share my piece as well. I have been excited ever since I found out about this piece. A perfect match to my Omega MOTM's. For the money this is a great match if you are a current MOTM owner. In addition, this is a great purchase if you don't want to shell out $4k Canadian for a pre-owned or a bit more for brand new.

This watch is a definite green light but I have heard that they are sold out. Good luck to all in your search.

I had to put it on my replica NASA Apollo velcro! :D

Congrats to all who made the purchase. :smile-thumb2: When the rumours started flying, I was pretty psyched about getting one. But as time dragged on, I became less and less excited about it and probably will regretfully pass on this purchase.
A couple of questions tho those who bought. I know its impolite to ask. But I saw one watch with a $695 tag on it. Was just wondering if the dealers were getting all of that ? If not, what did they come down too ?
Does the 1/10th sec dial spin quickly when used or does it stay stationary then make its display when the chrono is stopped ? Probably not gonna get to see one of these in person. Was just wondering. Thanks.

Forzaferrari, the 1/10 sub dial spins quickly for the first 30 seconds, then stops until you press the chrono stop, of which it'll rotate to the stopped time interval. :)

They sell for $556 CAD here in Canada.
So that's $439 USD at today's rate.

Thanks to both of you for the information. I wish you guys nothing but good luck and lots of enjoyment from a great and very innovative brand.
I'm a huge Bulova fan. I own 16. Including 3 Precisionists and 5 Accutrons.
My Bulova insider told me to expect to pay somewhere around $455 once they came out. Thanks for confirming that he was in the ballpark.
Might have to run out and see if I can squeeze one into the budget before its to late. My son wants one so bad too but.... :)
