Holy Holystones, Batman!

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

It has been a couple of the most insane weeks we’ve had to date – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Pre-Orders
Our first batch of stainless steel Holystone & Six Pounder watches arrived last week and have all been packed and shipped out to those that placed their pre-orders! The second batch was only a few days behind it and just finished shipping out as well. And for those waiting for the PVD models, they’re getting close – the first few have arrived here in the US and are being calibrated as we speak!

Now Shipping!
We have stainless steel Holystone & Six Pounder models ready to ship – order yours before it’s too late icon smile Holy Holystones, Batman!

RedSea Watch Giveaway
We held the drawing for the free RedSea watch last Friday. Congratulations to our winner John P. of Austin, Texas. We called John to congratulate him and saying he was excited would be the understatement of the month! He has an incredible story that we hope to feature here soon. Thanks to everyone that participated in the pre-order giveaway.

Straps
We hope to be adding extra NATO and rubber straps to our site for purchase soon. And even more exciting, we’re getting close to working out the final details for RedSea’s first handmade leather straps in partnership with a local strap maker.

Thank you to everyone for the continued support – it has been fun to see these start showing up on wrists around the world. Check out the cool lume shot a local owner took of his Holystone next to another classic diver.

The Finish Line

Shipping Begins
Our first batch of stainless steel Holystone & Six Pounder watches are expected to arrive today and will begin shipping to those who placed their pre-orders. The next batch should only be a week after that! We’re expecting the PVD models to follow shortly thereafter.

Pre-Orders End
This means that our pre-order special will be ending today, July 20th. So if you’ve been waiting, now is the time! As a reminder, in addition to getting a $100 discount, all pre-orders will come with an additional 4th custom NATO strap and be entered into a drawing for a free RedSea watch of their choice. The drawing will be held on Friday, July 22nd.

Minnesota GTG
To celebrate the arrival of our watches, we thought it would be fun to have a little watch GTG (get together) this Friday, July 22nd from 6-8pm at Carbone’s Bar & Restaurant in Lakeville, MN. This is open to anyone that is interested – it would be fun to meet some local watch enthusiasts!

Check out a few shots of the completed watches before they undergo final QC checks along with some pictures of the final QC process.
