Any update on the shipping on this? October 26th has come and gone... Thank you
Please bring this one back at the earlier, rather than the last drop @ +$200. I'll sign up! It's a cool watch, but the XCOR brand, sadly, has little value today as its time ticks away.
Previous complaints about the shipping time are not encouraging...
SoFar
Wanted to chime in on this issue.......My name is Max Robertson and I am the COO for Luminox. Mass Drop was not at fault for the late shipping on this last drop on this watch. We had a delay in our Swiss factory with regard to getting this watch produced in a short term turn around period AND then to compound the issue, we had a customs hold put on the shipment after it was received, because we were also importing some UV lights, which we use at the point of sale to demonstrate the tritium tube technology.......in today's climate, anything that gets tagged with "laser" in the description in a "no go" for customs. The watches being sold today currently reside in my warehouse in NJ and will be available for immediate shipment. Thanks........

Good to have feedback from the Manufacturer!
great watch anf great watch!
45.5 (ie approx 46) mm + holy katz that's a ginormous watch. a cool watch, really really cool watch actually , but a very very big watch.

I was stuck more by the 18mm thickness but I agree she's a big girl.

Agreed, somewhat expected that a valjoux 7750 based movement by it's very construction will be pretty thick so but agreed 18mm is significant girth I think my valjoux based chrono is 15mm But I'd have to pull a spec sheet
edit just checked mine is 16mm, which is on par and close to what i tend to see with other valjoux 7750 chronos
While I find it a bit overpriced, that really is a cool design that's a major departure from any Luminox I've ever seen.
$599 last time weren't they? Why the price rise?
PS: These are still using tritium I think (states: 25 years Night Vision Tubes)

Lailo,
Yes. All Luminox watches employ LLT (Luminox Light Technology) in our watches on the H,M,S and hour markers. These are tritium glass vials as you have referenced. The expected life of the gas is 25 years and we warranty the illumination for 10 years. Thanks
Nice to see Luminox departing from their usual faux Navy SEALs shtick. Also seems to be a decent price for anything with a 7750 in it.
Are we still expecting an update today for those orders that didn't ship? I might not have enough patience to wait past today if the news isn't great.

how long did it take before it arrived?
After contacting customer service twice, I was told that my order is on back order with no eta.
Massdrop isn't worth it and they can't expect customers to endure bad service.
Fare thee well.
I'm out.
I contacted support and was told an update is coming today, 5/18/17, supposedly with shipping info.
Fingers crossed!
Massdrop, I'm in the logistics business and we ship thousands of orders a day, most of which are far more complex than putting a single item in a single box. 50 orders would be produced and shipped within the first hour, if not quicker. If you're doing this work yourselves, give us a chance at helping and making all of your customers much happier with your turnaround time.
We're two weeks late at this point. When will these ship?
Massdrop,
How long does it take to put fifty boxes in fifty bigger boxes and then add labels and postage? You were able to process my order and charge my credit card in seconds.
This delay is taking all the the fun from buying from Massdrop.
Please provide an update. Better yet, deliver my purchase....now.
Thanks.
still waiting for an update...
Hi massdrop, Please update the status. I think it's a bit too long to wait for your warehouse to prepare the shipment. Thanks
This drop is not for those needing immediate gratification!
Dan.Stein
True, but when the estimated ship date is May 3rd, and we haven't received a single update since the drop ended, I think it's perfectly fine to poke the Massdrop staff and ask what's up.

I agree it's too long. . My statement was intended to be tongue in cheek
Any updates on this? Thanks.
Any updates? We're a day past the anticipated ship date. Thanks!
I have always wanted a Luminox to add to my collection but I'm not a fan of quartz movements and most of there line up is quartz based. This watch was on my list when I came across it and did some searching for it and only to find it on Amazon and Ebay for at best $1200 and or $2000 or more and best offer. I'm a big space watch geek snice my father worked for NASA during the space race and propbably owned a few Omega's in the early days. So when I came across this drop I'm all over it. Just hope the quota is meant to purchase the watches. I joined the Porchase Design one a few months back but the quota was not reached so the drop didnt happen but now glad it didn't. Hopping to add this to my other 2 space watches, have a space saved. Crossing my fingers the drop happens!!!

this watch is cool. on looks and function I think this is a great watch. that being said, the watch will not be worn on the first space flight by XCOR on the lynx space craft, because the entire passenger space flight program has been terminated. All the people who bought tickets to be one of the first to fly on lynx are having trouble getting refunded and the people who won tickets to space through the axe body spray/XCOR apollo campaign are not longer getting anything. kind of sad to see that lynx space ship on the second hand when the reality is it was a dream that has failed. However, I think this reality is what lets you buy this watch for the price they are asking (it probably sold for 50-60% off MSRP and would still be sold at that price if XCOR still had more than just the website promoting their passenger space flight program).

That is such a shame to hear that... would have been great to own a piece of history as I am a big fan of space flight :)
wouldve been all over if it was smaller like <43mm. Is this NOS or from Luminox direct?

Same here.. Gorgeous affordable auto chrono, but waaay too big.. 40mm is my limit.
HZZZA
And 18mm thick!
does the second-hand tick or is it just a chronograph?

Hello!
The big orange hand is the chronograph seconds hand, and it only moves when you start the chronograph or reset it back to zero. Being an automatic chronograph, the hand sweeps (it doesn't tick every second) while in use.
The dial at nine o'clock is the running seconds hand and it denotes the seconds for regular timekeeping. The runnning seconds hands is always sweeping as long as the watch has power.
The dial at 12 o'clock measures the elapsed chronograph minutes, and the six o'clock dial measures elapsed chronograph hours. The hands on both of these dials move only while the chronograph is engaged or while resetting to zero after use.

Second hand only moves when timing via chrono. Small hand at 9 sweeps seconds.
Could we please get a lume shot?
