    2/17 Helm Komodo Incoming, what'd ya get?

    Orange for me with the optional stainless bezel. I forgot to order a SS2 bracelet though so I gotta try to add that to my order.

    Damn, sold out in 17 minutes!!

    Man, that was the one I was originally going to get, it was a tough decision.

    Yep ... nice choice. I managed to snag an Orange version as well. Sharp watch ...



    Happy Landings

    Hey congrats! Wow! They really sold out again that fast. I know Helm is pretty amazed at the success of their product. Even after numerous releases, one would think the saturation point would be met, but no way. These lulls in supply just pump up the audience even more. It's nuts. I'm so happy for them.

    They are very good about adding on to orders and they're extremely organized and focused on customer support, service, & communication. Drop them a line and add your parts while you get the "with-a-watch" price break.

    Congrats! That's a great pic, makes me even more anxious to get the watch!

    Thanks! They just keep selling out time and time again, pretty incredible.

    Yeah, I went ahead and purchased the SS2 bracelet moments ago and dropped them an email so I'm sure they'll sort it out and send it along with the watch, should be a great combo!

    Sorry to rain on this love parade, but in my opinion Helm is manipulating its customers by creating an artificial scarcity. They sold out in less than two minutes tonight. That's not a company committed to meeting its market demand - it's a company trying to maintain an image of being unobtainable. The fact is they can allow pre-orders of as many watches as they choose. They aren't actually making any watches - just assembling components like so many other watch companies (that aren't artificially and arbitrarily limiting production).

    I for one am not going to play into it any further. There are lots of other options out there.
