    i wonder how long they'll actually last?

    200 available

    will the site be gridlock and just freeze up while 1000 people are trying to buy 1

    trying to find the reference in TimeZone from a bunch of years ago when Massena was "golden" there was a whole bunch of discussion about the "radial flip".....seems that he has gotten over it.

    I love the detail of these watches but something about not having a seconds hand bothers me.

    These have that futuristic version of a classic that I find totally unappealing. Kinda like these

    Great (visual) analogy. I don't love these but I do like some other Ming models.

    I checked too--it was like that as of 10:20 eastern time as well. I wonder if they've sold *any* or if it's been swamped the whole time.

    lol 1000's of people going to the site hitting refresh and the same time.

    the bots prolly got them all. if they have a good bot they can buy multiples at the same time.

    john q pubic is screwed

    my friend has a T1 and he still couldn''t get though either

    don't worry,..you get through eventually only see that it's sold out. lol

    always a chance that the site seized before the drop and the watches never made it on there to be purchased

    32 minutes later still anxiously hitting refresh

    In case anyone's looking for a lesson in futility, try the link for the MassenaxMing again today. Even if you pass the captcha prompt+ID all the bikes/trains/planes/boats asked of you, you then get to the page+find you are forbidden.

    It's honestly just too bad; they're great looking watches and would be fun to wear. Given all the flipping it will be fascinating to see how or if this issue gets resolved--if, for instance, Kurona's solution works out.

    Got the same forbidden page. I must not be human as I fail the captcha often. So would a motorbike fall under their bicycle? :taunt:
