SAN I just showed up well worth the wait. Fully functioning and factory wrapped #193/250.
BTW went on Androids sight and looked at the 41mm IDEA. Much better color combos really like the gold on this one. Hope they offer them in the bigger 48mm size for you. I also agree the lizard strap looks much better than the leather.
Well Silver is the one you originally wanted anyway. Is it still at the $799 price point?That's great news. Glad they were able to make it happen for you. I saw the gold version on the Shop tonight going for $849 so I'd say your getting a pretty good deal. They also aired both an Arsenal and a SAN IV with the 7750 movements. They were $758 & $799. Once only deals. Of those 2 I'd go with the SAN IV but unfortunately I'm out for awhile. Looking forward to seeing your new SAN I.
The Double Escapement Android I was eyeing was actually a 42MM case size. They're bringing out a 48MM version in a few weeks but different colors and without the Lizard strap that's on the one I like. I could deal with the 42mm size just to have the cool dial design. And the color option on the smaller case is way nicer IMO. The larger ones will be in either blue or purple and I think they are on leather. They'd probably look killer on mesh though. But as I stated, I'm going have to cool it for awhile. NBZ.
That's the double escapement watch I think. If so very cool looking and a great size at 48mm. Don't know anything about the movement but if your going to try an unknown movement WING is the one to try it with!
BTW I am supposed to be getting the silver tone now not the gold saw some pop back and C/S grabbed me one still at the discount.
Sounds like it's finally headed your way though. That's good news. Good things come to those who bait, I mean wait. I've been kind of eyeing the Android IDEA. Genuine Lizard strap looks nice. I don't really know much about the movement though. It's a Shanghai movement. A bit small for my taste too. I know there's another execution that's a bit larger soon to be released, but without the lizard strap. I'm thinking I'll just sit this one out for a while. Excited for you though acquiring a really nice piece. I'll bet that Gold is beautiful.
The SAN I is showing shipped today on my SHOP account. No email yet though. Today is 1 month and 1 day since my original order and 11 days past when that order was due to arrive. Never gone through so much to get a watch kind of crazy!
Got an email today order processing silver tone SANI 674$ free shipping. Now just need to see a shipped email. This has been crazy hope the watch ships and is not a return and functions properly. Anyway gona watch some shows but wont be buying anything til this nightmare is over!
Quick up date. Just got an email from shop said she was reinstating my order on my old unclosed acc and should be getting conf. email later today.
The big problem was when I opened the new acc I then had 2 accs they closed the new one but were keeping it open til the SANI purchase ran its course. When they canceled the original order that acc went away but after they made the offer on the now deleted acc. Hope all goes as planned its been hard for me not to get angry in my emails but I do bare some of the blame here.
In another not emailed MATT says its all good so far just getting into the swing of things and internet is a little sketchy and slow.
Glad you were able to get your watch repaired and will let you know later if they come through on mine.
Wow Mike, that just doesn't seem fair to me. Is it the new acct. that they arbitrarily closed? Just curious. I would have guessed that when you opened up a new acct. that you also would have used the new acct. to purchase with. How can they just close the acct. without your input? As long as you have a legitimate money source I wonder why they would close the acct. I'd fight it too if I were you.
On another note, I was changing the battery on my Invicta Vintage Day/Date with the copper dial and after i was finished it still wouldn't work. I took it to BVP Watch repair in Auburn and Vladimir told me that the coil spring was damaged. He was able to repair it though. $30 to fix. He uses some sort of an epoxy that when set up is kind of like a weld job. He said it's quite expensive stuff, but the watch works fine now. I only paid $59 for it but he told me that it is worth much more at a retail value. Probably more like $150+.
Good luck trying to persuade the CS to see their short comings.
And the saga continues. I told you in my rush to get the SANI I opened an online acc. So I then had 2 accounts. Now shop is saying that the acc I bought the watch on is now closed so the offer is no longer available to me. Still fighting it hope to hear back from CS tomorrow.
