Announcing my upcoming limited edition, The Lydian Skeleton Tourbillon!
This limited edition will be an edition of 30 pieces, the same number as the original Lydian Tourbillon LE. The edition numbers will be engraved on the caseback of each watch. Here are the other specs for the watch:
Size: 44mm diameter, 15mm thick, 54mm top to bottom of lugs
Case and Caseback: 316L stainless steel, 5ATM water resistance
Dial: ‘Lydian’ style skeletonized dial with Swiss super-luminova in the hour markers, seconds markers, logo, and hands
Crown: 7mm diameter, square style with recessed logo
Crystal: Domed Sapphire(front), flat mineral(back)
Clasp: Stainless Steel Deployment Clasp
Movement: 1 minute flying skeletonized tourbillon movement, hand wound, 28800 vph, 40 hour power reserve, Chinese made
Strap: your choice of either premium black or brown leather
Hands: tapered style, white Grade A Super-Luminova
Warranty: 2 years
Pricing for this watch will be $1150 Canadian dollars plus shipping. This is a very special price for the limited edition watches only. Normally this watch will start at $1325, but I’ve also decided to throw in a free sapphire crystal upgrade, a free premium leather strap upgrade and a free deployment clasp upgrade. Nomal pricing for all of this together would be $1520. So you get a reduced price for the watch plus extras for supporting the launch of my skeleton tourbillon models.
To purchase one of these watches, I will be posting each individual watch of the limited edition to my website for purchase on March 21, 2015 at 11am Eastern standard time in this area of my website: http://wilkwatchworks.com/product-category/limited-editions/
This is a first come, first served type of sale. Each individually numbered watch will be available at the specific time listed above, so if you are early enough, you can choose which number in the edition you’d like. If you would like a specific number in the edition, I would suggest registering yourself on my website ahead of time, to save time during the checkout process.
The build time for these watches is looking to be about 4-5 months from the time about half the LE is sold. I do require the full payment up front, but I will be keeping everyone notified through emails about the progress of the build, which will include pictures. Of course, I’m always here to answer your questions as well.
Here are some preliminary pictures of the prototype of the Lydian Skeleton Tourbillon. There will be more pictures coming before the launch of the LE, mostly through social media sites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
