Reacted to the specials Hont published, specifically looking to purchase a VSF Seamaster with white dial and black bezel.

2/16/22 - Inquired about watch

2/17/22 - Payment information sent

2/18/22 - Payment sent via Transferwise

2/19/22 - Confirmed Transferwise payment received and email sent to request QC pictures

2/28/22 - Inquired on QC, received response that the requested watch color is slow to produce which aligns with response from another RWI member ordering the same watch.

Will update as the buying experience moves forward.

FYI, I am after the same watch and received the same response from Hont, quite a few orders in and lack of stock of white dial VSF.
I have a hunch it will be a few weeks but that isn’t based on facts of course.

Actually I also just bought the VSF with the white dial, though from Mirotime because they currently offer free shipping and Ive been told Hont doesnt refund/replace when seized. Are your sure the stock is low? Miro and TT told me the stock should last for a while now and I got a second QC within 3 days.

Hm thats weird. Ever considered just buying it from another dealer? Miro currently offers free shipping and they have it in stock. Very nice service too.

Changed my order last night to a Vacheron Constantin 2000V and paid the difference in price. A new round of waiting begins.

Overall, lost about $35 due to Transferwise/Paypal fees and almost 8 weeks wasted waiting.

The same day I received the refund from Hont, I ordered the Vacheron Constantin from another dealer DukeJones and just received QC in record time. Seems his suppliers had it available.
