    Will this be a downpayment or full payment due tomorrow? Not familiar with stripe.com.... anyone used it before?

    You have the skills to make it yourself if not.

    It's not just a case of dripping paint on to a watch you know... :unsure:

    @Calibre11, DC considering your location why is the launch being done around US timing? For the Miami event?

    Would have thought midday GMT or even +1 (Geneva) would have suited the global audience a little better....? But then again what do I know!

    I suspect in going to be priced out of this but looking forward to seeing the watch.... if I've guessed right.

    No matter when you release something, someone is going to get short shrift. The Omega Speedy Tuesday hit before dawn on the US West coast, leaving a ton of Omega's better customers in the lurch. There's just no good way to release something at once that will satisfy the US East and West coasts, Europe, Asia, and Australia

    Yes, it is full payment. Stripe seem to be a fairly universal plug-in for WooCommerce sites. Their only advice to me was that ultimately, it's the customers' bank that must approve the transaction. If you use a credit card to buy bread and milk at the local shop once a week and then you try and buy a watch, there's a good chance that your bank will reject the transaction as it's unusual. If you want to be 1000% sure, you'd need to call your credit card company and give them a heads up.

    Timing is hard. In the end, it was a timing agreed with TAG Heuer and was based on where most readers are. As someone in a totally different timezone, I know what a pain this can be, but I've gone with the majority.

    I'm guessing it's a Monaco with a special movement.
