I actually realised you posted 2 pages back, hence I remove the large "What colour did you pick" part of my post :P

I still have another 36 hours before the 'confirm your shipping details' is complete. But apparently all up it is 2-3 weeks from the moment you get your 'confirm your shipping details' email before you get the pebble. So the way I figure it sometime just after Easter it should arrive :D

They should never have offered colours, I understand why they did it, the problem is the only have 2 moulds to work from.

So the first 30,000 blacks were made using both lenses, now 1 is being used for the remaining blacks and the other for the colours. The issue with that is it takes around 1-2 weeks to set it up for a colour before they even begin production of that colour. Then no doubt 2-3 weeks to manufacture that colour range, and then back to 1-2 weeks to set it up for a new colour etc....

The good news is at least you picked red, ie the first colour to be made (after the majority of blacks were produced), so I would guess at 2 weeks and you will get your email and a further 2-3 weeks before it arrives (all up maybe 4-5 weeks?).

As I said on the previous page, had you of simply picked black then you could have just bought a wrap to change it to the colour you want

I unfortunately wasn't even aware of the skin wraps, if I had been I'd swap back to black :/

Ahh well it's all too late now!!!

You lucky bugger Ash, Out of interest any intentions on changing the band? I have ordered this little guy:

To give you an idea of how that will look, refer to this example:

That looks like a decent band, my problem is that the two holes I'm testing need to be closer. It's either too tight or too loose haha.

Might swap to that one you showed Chucky.. looks good.

I had to get it off Ebay, as for some reason Amazon couldn't dispatch it to Australia. I have never been a fan of metal bands, but always loved the look, so that was a great compromise (ie the look of a metal band but in polyurethane).

If you need a link to the seller let me know.

How are you finding your watch? Some have apparently bricked, so I am hoping I get one of the ones that it doesn't happen to :P

At least you know red have been or are being made. Where as Grey, Orange, White (and god knows what other colours) still have had no ETA set as to when that is happening.
