    Re: Project GMT: Name discussion

    Yeah, that was kind of confusing. There is not a "wait list" per se, just a suggestion to make sure you're signed up for the MKII newsletter that comes out via email. You can take care of that at the MKII website.

    There were 60 pre-order slots that filled up in a matter of days back in late January after a Bill put up a post announcing it. Bill has said that the Key West will be limited to 250 pieces, so accounting for the full pre-order, another 190 will become available later when the general ordering opens up. I emailed Bill about this a while back and he said that general order will probably open around the time that the pre-order watches are "close to or in the process" of being delivered, and he hopes that will take place sometime in 2013. Of course, if you're read as much on this forum as I have, you know that the best advice is 'just be patient.' I also suggest keeping a close eye on the forum; that's your best bet for seeing the general-order open up in a timely manner...when it happens, there will be posts about it.

    That's the best info that I've got. If anyone knows anything more, or if I've misrepresented something, feel free to let us know.

    Great question. That has been brought up by someone else in this thread too; who knows, maybe. I'm sure it'll be addressed for popularity at some point during the design process, but I'm sure it would have to be a very popular option for Bill to go to the trouble, especially sice the Kingston bracelet is the simplest avenue along with being period correct and very popular already.

    Personally I prefer the oyster, but I'll tell you what though, if the jubilee becomes an option...I'd pay for both.

    Well, a jubilee will mean Bill with have to come up with the design and have it built. That will take even more time. Since the 6542 originally came on a riveted band, I would think that is what Bill was planning. Plus he has them designed and built already. Much like the Hardey Roma bands some have been putting on their Kingstons, I'd imagine there will be plenty of very nice, high quality jubilees's out there that will work. Then we have both options.

    The way see it, Bill is only making 250 of these. There are already a million different options that people are looking for. I know all of them will not make the cut in the end and the more there are, the longer things take. I guess time will tell.

    Very sensible responses, thank you!

    I hated waving the opportunity to buy the Kingston when it was available. I have a Nassau on it's way next February.

    But this watch has caught my full attention... When ordering opens, I will be buying. I love every detail of the GMT.

    Dear Comrades, I couldn't come across with any mock drawing of the Key West GMT. If I missed to see, I apologize. So, any drawing or any date for starting to build this run / batch? Any price at this point? Very Best Regards . . . Capt. Serdal

    Malyel posted some great watch mock ups on the how would you like the pan am to look thread at post #241, and Bill posted his dial mock ups on this thread at post #118.

    These mock ups make me salivate... Especially right now, since I'm out of the country on business...every time I look at my Kingston on this trip, I keep thinking how great the Key West is going to be.

    Build date unknown, but January marks one year since I put the deposit... Time is flying by. I don't recall the exact price but I think I put half which was $600 on $1200.
