    It would only be better if it was Stephen Hawkings voice program.

    I guess this is why I got an email notification earlier that the watch is back in stock. But by the time I tried to "buy", it was "sold out" again. :(

    I assume a blasto-gram is sent to everyone on the waitlist and it's first come first serve. Gotta be FAST to snag one of these!!!

    A quick update on the e-mail that some of you may have received about the watch being back in stock- please ignore that.

    I am reconfiguring the website to allow for a handful of cancelled orders to be offered to the Waiting list, and in that process, the auto e-mail was triggered.

    Yes, there will be some watches available- but they will not be offered on a first come, first serve basis. They will be offered in the order of places on the waitlist, with each person getting 24 hours before the watch is offered to the next person, etc.

    I don’t know how many will be available at this stage..but it’s only a few.

    Apologies for the false smoke signals

    Good to know. :thumbsup:
    I like this process much better. It seems more fair and gives people a chance to react and think about such an important purchase.

    I am guessing a regular production model will be announced at Basel this month? A few tweaks from the forum edition maybe, one can hope.

    Hi John,

    No, I wouldn't have agreed to the project if TAG Heuer intended to release- fro example- materially the same watch but without the Siffert signature within a few weeks..that wouldn't be right.

    You won't see a while dial/ blue highlights Autavia for the foreseeable future

    I received a message today from a friend inside TAG Heuer who has been keeping an eye on the watches as they are being made. Today, a batch had the hands getting assembled on the dial on top of the movement. As he said "...it felt so good to recognize those blue hands.." :)

    A technical question for @Calibre11 ... how was the signature laid down onto the glass caseback? Some form of printing?

    Thanks. I'd be interested to know anyway.. . But Also in the image above it looks almost 'photoshopped on' is that a coincidence from tho direct angle of the photo?

    It's 100% photoshopped (of some type of CAD)- this was the image that was made up to approve the design, which then goes into final design

    Unlikely, but hopefully there will be future collaborations.
