TNT Watches

I've been keeping my eye on these. I got an email from TNT on this earlier. I've been meaning to contact the owner to tell him I like what he's doing and that a 1-2mm case size increase will result in phenomenal sales. I've just been busy. I love this piece just wish it were bigger. 44mm-46mm=perfection.

That's a very limited production run. Sal, would you expect to see another model run sometime 2014 or are manufacturers like this frequently 'one and done'? I really like this.

I'm on the reservation list and am debating moving forward. I've got a couple of other pieces I'm interested in and I do have a budget... I like the look and have small wrists so 43mm works for me (I bought a 50mm once and it was clown big on my wrist :laugh:). I'm just really curious regarding quality.

I'm not sure if you mean another run of this model or will they make limited editions of different designs? I can tell you that this is probably the 3rd LE watch they have emailed me about in the last few moths. so it seems that they are cranking out quite distinct and different limited edition watches in rather rapid succession. Now, will they make an additional run of this particular model here? I don't know.

Seems like you get quite a bit for your money. Nice movement with some pretty unique styling. Have never handled one so I can't comment on quality first hand. I wonder what that bezel is made of?
