i've been on Skype with Jake the last couple nites and we discussed the T2 project. i specifically asked what i could share and nothing was top-secret
progress is being made!!
-10 (maybe more) new dials in the pipeline: 6105 style with and w/o date, Explorer and Explorer II styles, PO and Ploprof styles, Black Bay styles, FFF styles, some mil dials (one like the IWC Mk) and one i suggested to him that i'm gonna keep a secret for now
-in less than 6 hrs he's taking a trip "deep into the PRC" to his handset supplier to see what he can get made up. i suggested something like the Hydroconquest which he got very excited about (he just snagged a ladies for his wife). he's restocking a number of popular handsets and should have at least a few new styles incl Snowflakes w/the diamond second hand
-case supplier is going to be the same as the T (which he couldn't be happier with their finishing job) and orders must be placed before the HK watch fair in Sept or there's gonna be a MAJOR delay in T2
-his feeling right now is we should start seeing them "by winter time" which, given the state of the last of the Tsunami orders being built, is more than reasonable IMO. in our discussions, i had some eye-opening info fed to me in regards to case production, watch assembly, yada-yada (so lay off Roland and i'll refrain from any more threadbombing the Olivier thread )
so, you guys waiting for your new Tsunami please be patient. he's working extremely hard to get them assembled properly while juggling massive amounts of e-mail, orders for parts, his family and the T2 production
EDIT: one other thing- a new website is in the works. some cool technology that will smooth out the ordering process will be a major component
