Thank you for the pictures @TheJohnP. These usually sell out quickly. Hoping for an orange blue Khuraburi with crown at 10 someday. Just an outrageous watch I think

Hi, Is there anyone did a successful order for this watch? I am very disappointed that i waited the whole day until midnight of May 17 checking at their website for the "ADD TO CART" buttom to go active but it never did. Maybe someone can share how to buy this watch with their pre order method.

Thank you for joining [mention]HONDAV4[/mention]. Hopefully, someone will be able to answer your question.

While you're here, check out our other sections and the Heads Up! thread. I'm sure you'll find a great deal on other watches you'd like.

Another round of pre order for the Komodo is coming up on June 16th but will be produced and shipped around December 2019 or thereabouts.

According to the email I received:

'Approximately 200 Komodo watches will be available for pre-order (full prepayment) beginning Saturday, June 16th, at 23:55 UTC.These watches have not yet been produced and are not yet in stock. We hope to have them produced and ready to ship by the end of the year'

To further expand on what @pgcity mentioned above regarding another batch of Komodo preorders:

A quantity of 200 Komodo watches (a portion of our next full production) will be available for pre-order (full prepayment required) on this page beginning Saturday, June 15th at 23:55 UTC. Your pre-order will reserve a Komodo in your name to ensure you receive the variation you want when production is complete.

IMPORTANT: Please note, this is a pre-order, which requires full prepayment for a watch that has not yet been produced and is not yet in stock. Once the pre-order session is closed, we'll begin production and hope to have the watches ready to ship by the end of the year. We'll do our best to keep production on schedule and will send occasional email updates to keep you posted on the progress, but minor delays are always a possibility.

REFUNDS: Is your pre-order/prepayment refundable? Yes, but not until the production is complete (around the end of the year). Your pre-order is paying for the production of a watch, so once production begins, the funds will be used to pay our manufacturing partners. Only when production is complete (and paid for) and we have watches in stock that we can sell, will we be able to issue any refunds.

ACCESSORIES: You can take advantage of the "with watch" discount to purchase accessories (straps, bezels, etc.) when you place your
pre-order or at any time before your watch ships. However, if you want an accessory bezel, we suggest ordering it now so we can produce enough of the most popular options. Any accessories purchased at the "with watch" discount price will ship with your watch order.

CHANGES: The only spec changes to note are the addition of an orange dial variation (03AR4) and a return to the FC1 non-ratcheting bracelet clasp as the standard clasp. The FC2 diver's extension clasp (which is still shown in some photos at left) will be available for purchase separately as an accessory, but will not be included with the watch (it was just too large for most folks).

PREORDER COST: US $285.00 + US $30 Shipping World Wide

Approximately 200 Khuraburi watches will be available for pre-order (full prepayment) beginning Saturday, June 22nd, at 15:00 UTC. These watches have not yet been produced and are not yet in stock, but we plan to have them produced and ready to ship by the end of the year. Your pre-order will reserve a Khuraburi in your name to ensure you receive the variation you want when production is complete.

IMPORTANT: Please note, this is a pre-order, which requires full prepayment for a watch that has not yet been produced and is not yet in stock.

CHANGES: Three spec changes from the previous production include new logo and dial text colors (please see images below), the addition of a date variation (02AR5), and a return to the FC1 non-ratcheting bracelet clasp as the standard clasp. The FC2 diver's extension clasp (which is still shown in some photos at left) will be available for purchase separately as an accessory, but will not be included with the watch (it was just too large for most folks).
