    We love preordering on the early stages because of the much better prices than after shown and after being ready to be delivered.

    Otherwise, why would anyone preorder ?

    I paid more on the Bullshark than others did from early preorders.

    I understand pre orders...I'm referring to the fact that this one seems to be 2 tiered pricing on the pre order. Just curious...I have no vested interest as I'm not really a fan of this one.

    Oh ok. So it was a rhetorical question on a project you aren't interested. Gotcha.

    No it was a simple question if this pre order was 2 tiered. I have not seen that before...at least I don't think I have.
    I was also simply stating that I'm not interested in this particular watch. So my question would not be construed as complaining.

    The multi-tier preorder is normal for borealis. Lower price for those willing to put down money based only on renders and specs. Price goes up as soon as prototypes are ready. Price regularly increases based on lower risk to buyers who can see photos of the prototypes, not selective price gouging in response to prototype popularity.

    NTH also had progressive preorder price increases, but based on qty sold.

    Basically rewarding early birds.

    Turning is a pointer, the passing of the time, the same is true. Time to rush to flow to me only care about you. If time is a circle, and you are in the circle of the other head.

    Didn't the Zelos Hammerheads start real low...then jump $30 every 20 watches sold or $20 bucks every 30 sold...
    ....something like that

    I think it's fair. The earliest birds gets the lowest 1st tier pricing. So I have no complain here.

    The problem, probably with me, is that when it goes into higher 2nd tier pricing, my initial interest in that watch will drop. So the higher tiers it goes, the lower my interest will become.

    Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense. That's all I was asking.
