Just...wow...I don't even know what to say, but...thank you. Seriously. Can't express how much your support means. Sincerely.
Oh my GAWD...they are bonkers, right? They've gotta have the most crazy FedEx contract. Every time I received a prototype throughout the design process, it arrived in Michigan (from the UK) in 24 hours. I wondered what that would look like when it came time for order fulfillment, but it seems as though they must have been working overtime because I've not heard of an order that took longer than a day to arrive. Unbelievable! It's been a pleasure collaborating with a team who is not only creative, but also organized and conscientious. They've been a joy to work with from start to finish.
Awesome! I really hope this will go a long way to convincing the company that a reissue should happen. Thank you, guys!
...and I'm sorry folks missed out on the limited run. These moved a lot faster than any of us expected. All this to say, if you missed it above, they opened up a waitlist link:
If enough folks sign up, they'll reissue it in an UNlimited run. *fingers crossed!!!*
Yes, it's kinda their typical business model these days. Release a limited run of 100, see how it does, if demand is great enough then reissue.
From what I've seen, they keep their prices quite consistent. LE's and Standard runs function (and by and large LOOK), exactly the same. So I've not seen price fluctuation between LE's and reissues. From all my experiences with them, they're really a very thoughtful and conscientious company. I'm proud to be associated with them.
Yeah, ha-ha! I know this seems a little out-of-the-blue for me. On Tuesday, I'll post the whole story of how this came to be on my website:
It was first released on their website, but within seconds I was posting to my email list subscribers, on my website, social media accounts, Pinside, etc. My email list was timed to release pretty much the second the announcement went live on the MJW website. If you're interested in jumping on my update list (I send out emails roughly 4 times a year. It mentions things like my public appearances...back in the before times ...as well as new projects coming out, like Coin-Op Carnival, my comics, neon design, and now watches), then feel free to shoot me a private message with an email address you'd like me to add.
You're darn tootin' I was. Ha-ha! I even asked if I could give my readers (email subscribers) a heads-up a day before so they'd have a better chance of getting one. I was told, "Absolutely not!" Ha-ha! ...which is totally fair. But, as I mentioned, I did let my email list know seconds after the watch was live on the MJW website.
Hope this answers a few questions, guys. Thanks, again for all your support.
Finally, if any of you managed to nab one, I'd love to get a picture of you wearing it. I'm putting together an art book and would like to make a collage of folks with these watches. If you're willing, please contact me.
Take care, all!
