      Thanks for the update mrlmnop! You've got us all sitting here eager in anticipation.

      If I recall correctly, I've seen a couple of these new ZF 15202s in Rose Gold floating around Reddit and they look great from what I've seen so far.

        I’ll wait until they make the hour hand base smaller. Don’t know why they manage to get the minute hand base right but not the hour hand...

          In order to made the next version, and then another one, and so on till the v123 when, finally hour hand base will have the right dimension.
          Unfortunately at v123 the minutes hand base will be increased in measure, so that they will are obliged in making v124...
          Nothing new under the sun, today

            NOT a TD here, but here are some more photos I’ve found while we all wait for some QC to start rolling in.

              And a few more from PT:

              Bezel screw alignment needs repositioned. Easy fix for a TD though.

                weird how in some PT and the other photos bezel screws are fine but then in the second set they are not. seems like a pretty obvious error and dont see how that could be "screwed" up

                  Following and agree re: bezel screws. Curious to see more real photos. Thanks for sharing

                          Hopefully taking so long due to the many layers of plating they are doing.

                          But based on the price point I’m worried it’s not going to be as thickly plated as we all want it to be.

                                Let me put it in perspective for you. Find me the thickest plated watch you can in the existence of mankind.
                                I’ll show you a can of brasso or autosol. Give me a few seconds with that metal polish and the watch and said plating will be no more.

                                Comparing thickness of plating is meaningless. We are talking about a slightly longer lifespan and marginally better durability and resilience but not the difference between 1 day and 10 years. No matter how thick a plating is, it WILL wear off eventually. There are no exceptions. We are talking about microns, a depth thin enough for the surface finish and scratches to still show through.

                                Let’s not even go into plating VS wrapping. Totally nonsensical. In the context of this hobby, wrapping is just a fancy name for plating, but priced more expensively.
