Really admire your patience in waiting for it. Wear it in good health and may it bring many precious moments! I’m anxious to see it.

Ironically, I'm on day 3 of my own cold as a result of drinking too much cold water in quick succession.... Too dumb on my end, but I'm already feeling better, in a couple more days I'll be 100% again. Wish you a quick recovery, the Ed will help considera... 

Are you on a list, Y? . . .

. . . my order was placed last year in early spring, and delivered this year late spring. As far as I know, boutiques are either no longer taking orders or informing clients the wait could be as long as five years. I got my nephew on the LA Boutique's lis...

Does this mean that production is ending or something else?

I see! I will call anyway and report back!

It means the lead times are now so far out . . .

. . . that they can't reliably predict when delivery will be made. If you were a retailer and took a deposit on a watch that could take up to five years to deliver, would you really want the responsibility that goes along with the extended time frame? My ... 

Looking forward to the wrist shot.

My wait time for the Ed was about 8-9 months. It is stretching to way way over a year now. The boutique here has stopped taking new orders until the existing order backlog can be cleared.

What a gorgeous watch, Art.

Declared interest at my hometown's retailer last week, asking whether I might see one upon arrival of the 2 or so I assumed they'd receive annually. Right... Turns out they haven't seen a single one yet. Pre-ordered in 2019, they said. Cheers Marc

Congrats, Art!

 By: TheMadDruid : June 17th, 2022-14:23
You waited a long time for that one; and it looks to be worth the wait. Feel better, and have a great weekend.

Congrats again, Art! Get well soon!

Are you keeping your Ed White in isolation?😉

Oh, I'm ok now, getting ready to visit Uncle Steve in a little while . . .

Chances are good you'll see it . . .

 By: Dr No : June 17th, 2022-17:09
. . . on or before July 16th. 😉

Hello dear Art! I´m happy to know you are enjoying Ed so much. I take your word of viewing a nice wrist shot with the Pacific on background but in the meantime please take care of your cold...

... and get well soon!! What a great Speedmaster variant you choose! Mine says hello! All the best, Abel ...  

Glad to share another Omega between our collections, Abel! . . .

 By: Dr No : June 18th, 2022-20:56
. . . Ed will be on my wrist for at least a few days - gotta get acquainted with my latest arrival . . .

I’m glad too dear Art!! I can easy understand that Ed will stay on your wrist…

 By: Subexplorer : June 19th, 2022-02:26
… it surely deserves to be enjoyed after the long wait. The movement also attracts our attention being so nice to view it working. Enjoy it so much my friend! A big hug for you! Abel

Congrats Art.

I’ve not seen this one in the metal yet. But boy does it seem to be popular. Visually, I like the look of the bracelet. (I’ve had two Speedmasters, both of which I immediately moved to a strap). How does it wear? How does it feel?

My Speedy Pro is fitted with . . .

. . . a racing strap. My initial take is they're more different than alike on my wrist. Factoring out the immaculate condition and slightly smaller appearance of Ed, the '69 pre-Moon on a racing strap is more 'me', for lack of a better term. Ed is a bette...  

Finally you got it!!

I am very happy for you, Art. I hope you feel better again. AND… I MISS at least one photo of the movement!!! All the best Thomas

Many congrats again! ☺️

Fantastic, Art! So happy you snagged this cool watch!

 By: CR : June 18th, 2022-02:47
I met "mach" at an event two days ago and he told me you got one, so I figured I'd check! Congrats!

Thanks, Craig! . . .

Oh, I've been ok since Friday, Nicolas. It was a mild cold . . .
