    I heard there is a slight change to March with the Chinese New Year slowing things down a little.

    Really looking forward to the blue cathedral. Missed the coupon and the early pre-order, very annoyed by the tiered pre-order pricing.

    Yeah there must have been a delay before, they have been dealing with Chinese manufacturers for years, their February estimate must have taken account for the New Year. Probably because the Bullshark was delayed, pushing Cascais back further, that would be my guess.

    I expected worst case scenario - April.

    I don't mind the delay, as long as QC standard are maintained. :)

    Blue Borealis Cascais proto on DrunkArtStraps canvas. Turns out I like the cathedral hands more than I expected on this watch.

    This watch represents an incredible value in Microland. It may be the micro of 2017.

    Cheers. B

    24 days in is probably a bit early to place the crown.

    But the more you guys keep showing pictures of those the more I keep thinking I should buy one. Unfortunately I don't do pre-orders of more than 30 days. I guess I'll be looking for a blue with Cathedral hands in the fall of 2017.

    Just placed my order for a brown/no date with cathedral hands. Like many of you, the more pictures I saw, the more I had to have the watch. Bummer that it will be another month+, but something worth having is something worth waiting for!

    Not from my perspective and it's just my opinion, especially as you'll note that I used the the word "may" :) It wasn't an absolute statement of course. But after over 1000 watch transactions and having owned or handled many micros, I feel very strongly about this one and think it'll be hard to surpass for 450$ or less depending on how much one paid for it.
    Also took into account that it won't come out likely until April + and I've seen some of the other micros other brands are coming out with... the Cascais value is hard to beat for me
    It oozes qualify and is very well finished...it's obviously somewhat subjective, it's not like I have a QualityMeter on my desk to stick my watches on :) I just think it's an incredible watch and value.
    Others' opinion will vary of course :)
