Just received the following email from Mr. Schauer:
Dear Airman Original customer,
today I want to contact you personally.
After we now have built and sent some of the Limited Airman Original, we must once more postpone the delivery time.
The effort for each watch is simply higher than we calculated to be.
To ensure the absolute quality I would like and I have to give me the necessary time.
I don't regard it a worthwhile to regulate, build and control the watches 100 % perfectly only to keep the promised delivery times.
I must accept as these brings us some disappointed customers and may also leads to cancelations.
From me the quality counts, even-though of course I would as well liked to have built the watches faster.
But I must place myself to the effort per watch and I don't want to deliver over hasty on no account.
Therefore the watch and the movement is too precious and too costly. Each watch must satisfy my high aspiration.
(What the customers can confirm which received their exemplar: best quality.)
Here some details of the afore no calculate extra work.
Unfortunately I must regrind each case because the finish of the case grinder for this price category doesn't delight me.
Overhead to beautify - deaden, engrave, gild, etc. to this nor some "smaller problems" which arise at each new lot.
(But itself add in the sum)
In the sum I don't talk about minutes overhead but rather about the hours overhead (per watch) !!
Therefore I would ask you for being patient. We deliver each week some watches, but even not so many how planned.
Nevertheless we want and must observe the chronology of the deliveries / orders.
As soon as your watch is ready Mrs Hafner ([email protected]) will contact you and inform you regarding the shipping details.
I wish you a nice weekend and I hope that your anticipation is even existing.
Your Jörg Schauer
