A New Wait Begins…

Anyone else jump on the pre-order for the new Furlan Marri 2116A Sector dial?

Haven’t been given an exact date yet but having thought about it all weekend, I’ll probably get mine around Jan/Feb/Mar next year…

Awesome!  That watch gives off such elegant vibes!  Like, this dude would be sporting it on his wrist, back in the heyday of international flight, martini in hand!

A few years back, I was in the Vacheron boutique just having a look around. The sales assistant saw me looking at the Cornes De Vache and offered to get it out for me to try on. It was in a precious metal and she saw my face when she told me the price. Then under her breath she told me to wait a week or so for an announcement. It was released in steel the week after. Still couldn’t afford it but it did look perfect on my wrist. All this considering I‘m not a big fan of chronographs, especially the ones with pump pushers!

The lugs on this just remind me so much of it - they’re so beautiful…like you chica…er, I mean chico…or I don’t know…it’s so confusing with your new name….😉😂

I am in the 6k range with the order, 1st 1000 ships this year, the remaining will land next year by May. So its a long way, I might almost forget I ordered and act like I am surprised when it shows up. My 1st watch with sector dial and Cornes De Vache.

Congratulations (lets hope everything goes smoothly!). 
How do you know your place in the order list?

Pls correct me if I wrong.. the limit is 10k ? or is it unlimited? Looks like they are not hitting their 10k demand anytime soon. The responds to this release seems to be muted.. and its their best one so far.

I thought their plan was unlimited pre-orders for 10 days in this dial configuration. How do you know the current order numbers? it was near 7k when I ordered and there’s still a few days left so not far off.

The regular production series will be unlimited but we don not know the dial/colour configurations yet. It’s unlike the mecha-quartz run where once orders were satisfied, no more will ever be made.

I agree, it’s a nice looking watch - hopefully they can continue the good work from the mecha quartz versions

Stop buying watches, my friend.  You have a virus way worse than Covid!  🤑😵‍💫

I haven’t ordered and won’t, but that is a very beautiful watch and I love to see it coming into the world. I’m curious to see what they do with that line of watches after this first release. It has me thinking about James Dean’s LeCoultre again.

I see your comment about VC above and that reminds me of yet another watch that has very classy lines (and that I will never own), the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Aronde 1954, Reference number 81018/000R 9657.

You do realise you can literally cut and copy this onto every WC account and it would apply, right?? 😂😂😂

I was only criticising YOUR bountiful watch purchasing behaviour to make me feel better about MY bountiful watch purchasing obsession psychosis!   🥴

I was excited to see what the next FM release would look like but if I'm honest, it just didn't do it for me personally. Like the dial but not the lugs. But that's the beauty of this game right, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Looks really nice, have to resist, or my wife will unplug me 😂.

Absolutely! I love the lugs! Makes collecting fun and much more interesting!
