Today I got news from the MEGALODON

The quotation is much higher than I thought, but ok with some small changes it could work and we can stay by the $550 early pre order price.

I still have to sell Sea Devils , the Moray will come and I also have to pay my long long time ago ordered Fricker Divers.
Normally this is the worst time to start a new project
but the Megalodon created so much interest that I cannot say it is only a dream.
I want it and I guess and hope you too.

 
 Now what is finally most important  for me is how many will really buy for $550 (in steel) with $250 deposit with the conditions below.




 
- Expected release is in 5 month - 6 month
 -Eta 2824 movement
 -47mm case with 49mm bezel
- Steel bracelet
- bezel design #1 but with 3 different options, luminos acrylic or enamel , alloy inlay      and  steel
- sapphire cristal
- WR minimum 500m maybe a bit more
- very very close to the design below  (first 4 dials) brushed dark grey and different hands

 I know we discused a second dial but almost all who asked me for a reservation asked for dial one, so I think if the interest is really as high I have make 100 pcs from dial one to satisfy all reservations

 It can become reality!
 

Btw.

PVD coating ($50) or DLC coating( I still have to check the exact price ) is also possible

Does this mean that there will be no option for blue or red carbon fiber?

No it doesn't ( I love the carbon dials) but the Megalodon threads  became a bit confusing and I have to know how many are serious in this configuration and design
 to make the dial in carbon instead of brushed is the smallest problem

Just as long as it's no bigger than the Sea Devil and can come in red or blue carbon fiber, I'm in for #11!

Can you bring the price down with Miyota Mvt ?  Or has the decision been made to use ETA ?  My Cave Dweller and Orsa Monstrum have Miyota, and the sweep second hand seems fine to me.

It seems the interest for the Eta is much higher so lets wait for the responses first
