Hello!

The time has come! The watch is ready to order here:

http://www.russia2all.com/kosmodrom-...ed-editio.html

Details (from our website):

Vostok-Europe Kosmodrom (Spaceport) Special Limited Edtion for WatchUSeek Russian Watch Forum Gift item of custom flask with either the WUS logo or image of the caseback of the watch is included in the cost. Please choose only one.

This is a special pre-order opportunity for the Vostok-Europe WUS Kosmodrom (Spaceport) Special Limited Edition WorldtimerVostok-Europe Russian Watch. This watch was chosen by vote on the WatchUSeek Russian Watch Forum. The watch is called the Kosmodrom or "Spaceport" as all the cities on the worldtimer subdial are connected to worldwide space exploration. This dial and combination of cities will never be repeated in another Vostok-Europe watch, along with the name Kosmodrom. These elements are exclusive to this very limited edition, custom watch. The engine is the Russian 2426, 32 jewel movement.

Please read these instructions in full to understand how this program works. No discounts off the seling price are allowed or will be honored for this special, limited edition watch.

Please place your order through this private link. At the time of order a $150 deposit is required. The balance will be charged in May/June 2014 after the watches are in stock as this is a special custom order being built under a commission. (If you prefer to pay the total amount in advance, please leave a note directing us to do this in the comments section). We will be running your card separately, so either the deposit option or entire amount is at your discretion. Just leave a note in the comments as to your preference or email us at info@russia2all.com. If there is no comment, we assume you only want to make the deposit.

If you pay with PayPal, we do not have a way to split the payments when you complete the transaction. The only option is to hold the full amount until delivery.

The total run will be only 150 pieces. You are welcome to choose the number you would like to have, such as 140/150. This is on a first come/first served basis. The #1 watch will be chosen by a random drawing. Please put your number choice in the comments section as well. If you do not express a preference, a number will be assigned to you.

 

FAQ:

How many people have to order for this to happen and do I have to be a member of WatchUSeek to order?

We have to have a minimum of 100 orders for this to happen at all. (And would really like to hit 150). We will keep you informed here. We would like this entire ordering process to be no more than 15 days total. If this just takes off like a rocket, we will consider going to 175 or 200 pieces LE, but no more than 200 for sure. If for some reason the watch is NOT produced we will refund all deposits. You do NOT have to be a member of WUS to order. Anyone interested in this special watch is welcome to purchase.

How do I pay the deposit?

You can send $150 to info@russia2all.com via PayPal or order on our site. Vostok-Europe WUS Kosmodrom Special Limited Edition Worldtimer. If you order on the site with a credit card, we will run the deposit only unless you inform us otherwise. If you order on the site and use PayPal, your only option is to pay the full amount now. To pay with PayPal and ONLY pay the deposit, please refer to next question.

I prefer to pay with PayPal but don't want to pay the entire amount now?

The only way we have for doing this is to send you a PayPal invoice for the $150 (or you can send it via PayPal to info@russia2all.com). You would NOT place the order on our site. Please email us and we will send you the PayPal invoice and record your order in our system separately.

What about shipping?

We will be offering free shipping in the United States to WUS members. You will need to use the coupon FREESHIPWUS when you check out. This coupon is for USA customers only please. For non-USA customers, we will provide a $10 discount off our normal shipping rates. The coupon is WUSSAVE10. This amount will come off the cost of the WATCH and not the shipping. It is just a function of how the coupon works.

Can I order from anywhere other than Russia2all if I am in the EU?

Yes! We have made a deal with Irina at Vostok-Watches.com and she will be selling these watches as well. (The price will be EUR 279). It will be a few days before she gets the listing up. Because Irina cannot set up the deposit as non-refundable in Germany, we are eliminating that requirement. But we ask PLEASE that you only order if you are serious about this watch and want it in your collection. The flask will only be available for orders from Russia2all due to the logistics of getting them to Germany. (They are engraved here in the USA).

Please note we CANNOT switch any existing orders and we CANNOT hold any LE numbers until Irina has the watch listed for sale. Those of you who ordered from us already in the EU I will do everything I can to work with you on addressing any import fees.

 

How do I pick my limited edition number?

You can include it in the comments on your order. You can also email us at info@russia2all.com or PM me here (please make the subject line Limited Edition WUS Number Choice). This is strictly first come first served. And numbers can only be reserved AFTER the deposit is paid. The first of the series 001/150 will be chosen by random drawing.

What if I don't get the number I wanted:

It has already happened and will happen again. Someone may beat you to the number you want. If that happens, we will inform you and will AUTOMATICALLY assign you to the lowest available number or the number closest to the one you requested. We are happy to change that.

I didn't request a number and I see my number has changed since you put it up?

If you don't request a number, we will assume you aren't worried what number you get and we will randomly assign you another number or the lowest available. Should someone else specifically request the number we give you, we may move your number again since you have not expressed a preference. If you change you mind about this, you will need to let us know please.

When will I get my watch?

Vostok-Europe has set a delivery date for late May or early June. This is an estimate, but we will do everything we can to make that timeframe.

Will this design be used in any other Vostok-Europe watch?

We have decided that the name Kosmodrom and the cities on this bezel will be reserved exclusively for this WUS watch. And this dial configuration won't be used in any other watch. We may (and most likely will) produce a more traditional worldtimer based on this design. But it will have a different name and different cities. (The only way this watch may be sold WITHOUT the WUS logo is if we do not reach the minimum number ordered and we have to switch out the rotor for a regular VE rotor so we can sell these to the public at large).

How can I trust I will get my watch and is this sanctioned by WUS?

We have been members of WUS since 2005 and we are the authorized distributors for North America. If you have any concerns, you can contact the members over at WatchGeeks forum based in the USA. The members there were very happy with the custom watch we did for them. Also, this has all been done with permission and blessing of Ernie Romers, owner of WatchUSeek.

What is with the flask?

Since this watch didn't lend itself to additional straps, we wanted to do something extra for the members. So, you can pick one of the two custom flasks we did with this watch and it will come with your order.

Is there a bracelet for this watch?

No, there is not a bracelet for this model right now.

I am sure other questions will come up and I will add them here as they do.

thanks!

Craig

Here is what the gift item flasks look like... please pick one. The caseback one should end up looking cleaner than this in the actual production. This was just a quick sample so we could get the process started.

Craig, if I understand it correctly the watch will be shipped from the US. This means I have to pay an additional %21 custom duties because I live in the Netherlands Is there a possibility the watch gets shipped from within the European Union for the EU buyers? This would save us a lot of money and to be honest I'm not sure if I want to buy the watch if I have to pay an extra $80 to receive it. Since Vostok Europe is within the EU could it be possible to send the watch to EU customers directly from them?

I really put some effort in the design process and it would really be it pitty if I have to let this one go..

edit: I just see the post above this one and I think the reason for the question is the same as mine.
