Watch Analog watch Clock Watch accessory Rectangle


I placed the order on Friday, October 1 through their official website.


So far the order is marked as paid and Unfulfilled. So far there has been no response to their website chat nor from an email I sent to them regarding when it will be filled and shipped.

I did just get an email from them letting me know that there is a National Holiday from October 1-7. The courier will pick up my package on the 8th. Hopefully it will be here before my birthday on the 27th.

Very nice Gary, awesome actually ! :cool: ;) Hey, and it looks like
you get a sporty NATO along with it as well. (y)(y)

You have to hand it to Heimdallr with how they seem to go the
extra mile details, as well as extras wise. Seriously, this dial is
probably first on the cool check box right sir?! And that is a real
homerun all by itself. ⚾But the bezel, case, and bracelet are
all checked off as exceptional too. ..It should just rock Gary !
A HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY congrats ahead of time !!! :D 🎂

I owned the same watch, but have now sold it. Absolutely brilliant watch for the money, and almost certainly better than the original. I ordered mine through Aliexpress, and it arrived in 6 days to the UK.I did a review

Apparently all of China is on a National Holiday from October 1-7. Here's what the email said:

Hi friend
Sorry for your waiting.

We are on national holiday from 1st to 7th Oct and courier company doesn't work as well.

Courier will pick up parcel on 8th Oct.

We add an band gift and will update tracking code ASAP.
***
But yeah, it seems they are making the Seiko watches that Seiko has stopped making and they're doing a better job of it.

In looking at the specs online for the original Seiko SKX781 "orange monster"

You have an inferior movement, the NH36 is better than the 7s26 with hacking and hand winding. The sapphire crystal is better than the Hardlex crystal. And of course, if you can find the discontinued SKX781, you will pay much more for it due to its collectible nature.

The Heimdallr actually looks more like the Seiko SRP309, which does have the NH36 equivalent the 4R36, but it still has a Hardlex crystal. But again, this 2nd gen monster has been discontinued, so finding it is difficult, and you'll ay way more than $179 USD.

So after a week's vacation due to a national holiday in China, they fulfilled the order. Today I received the updated tracking information from FedEx. It looks like a pending delivery date of October 18. We'll see.

At least you got an update on things Gary. (y)

It will be interesting to see if it does get to you by that date with
all of the delays going on. But, it's a watch that will be worth the
wait no matter what. 😉

It's very cool of you to give us an update on things as well sir. 😎:cool:
Thanks so much !!!

Oh wow Gary, see it ended up being a short wait. 😉

I was honestly hoping it would get to you fast, but was
thinking it may still be delayed a bit. However, am blown
away how quickly it got to you considering the issues
going on with shipping, and everything. But I guess
since it had hit land, that it was terrific news actually
sir. (y) (y)

I don’t know how you are going to be able to wait
until the 27th, but am ecstatic that at least it’s in
your hands now. 😀 ..Wising you a BIG birthday
congratulations Gary !!!

It was pretty fast. Ordered in October 1. Fulfilled on October 8. Arrived on the 15th. In the future I might try to pay attention to Chinese holidays and order on a business day in China and not on a holiday weekend!

you if there wasn't a holiday. 🤯😵It might get to you almost
too fast possibly. 😄

Really hope you enjoy it sir ! Happy Birthday !!! 😀😉
