My opinion on the expectation and hype of the Team Alingi have not evan began yet. Now we have a commercial on CNN I have read about this peice almost 2 years ago and have followed any info I could get my hands on up to now.
We all know Francois said at SIHH as reported to us by AT that all peices will be delivered by the end of june, time is running out here when you figure 8 weeks. Next week is the trunk show in NYC following week in Miami the question is will they wait until after the shows or during. I am trying but and not getting much info on exact delivery. Francois said at SIHH in 2 weeks we will see delivery start well we are in the 2nd week with no word as of yet. Can anyone else shed any info on this topic.
Another interesting thing will be the hornback strap with red stitch that will be available for the TA, my understanding you will need all peices for the strap to work a total of 10 guessing straps, buckle, screws etc. All add up to the magic 10 number. Much to my suprise I am told it will retail for upwards of $1800 US man is that steap. Only AP could pull something like that off. But my understanding from pictures the strap looks very impressive on the watch.
My only wish is that AP didn't increase the weight by 2/3rd's to get it to the between 90 and 100 grams it is today. For technological purposes they should of made it the lightest watch on the planet. The titanium back is outstanding looking but thought the all forged carbon back was beautiful as well.
I await mine as well and it's a long time coming thanks to the endless torture put to us by our very own TM ! Thanks Thomas......
