    Wow. I am really happy with these. I have a Green and a Cream, but all four are great. As pretty as any Disney Princess!

    I particularly love the curvature of the case and the crystal. Well done.

    These look fantastic, can't arrive soon enough.

    The blue looks really good, happy with my choice, although I am drawn to the grey as well. My only criticism (and a small one at that) is the strap - is that the strap that it will come with? This is obviously my opinion but it looks a little bland and I don't think a puffy strap goes with the watch. I think a croc look would suit it, but that is something I can do down the line.

    Really good work guys.

    The princess fetish is a bit odd too

    They all look good. Numbers on calender ring fit within the aperture? The date shown, 8, looks cut off top and bottom.

    Thanks guys!

    We discovered most members change out the stock strap upon arrival anyway so decided to go with a standard strap.

    My name is Ed and I have a princess (in particular Disney) fetish.......NOT!!! My kids love anything Disney and it was the closest thing at hand :)

    Forgot to mention blue is the only working model. The others do not have movements installed and are dummies with stuck on hands, date wheel etc.

    Production will take around 2 months after we give the go-ahead (and tell Thomas what changes need to be made).

    Everything looks great. My only issue is that somehow we lost the time zones in North America on the case back. Here's what the final was in April:

    Hopefully, it's an easy fix.

    Not a problem Rick. Thomas knows of this issue and we will 'tweak' this prior to final production.

    Looking good, just one question, the original creme render had blue hands.
    And now?
    I understand things do change.

    The cream dial has blue hour, minute and seconds hands, the lighting probably makes them look black.
