Very nice !!

Big fan of V5 and V7, but V1-red steals the show....
Any pics of the decorated movement and the rotor?
(or at least a graphic rendering of the rotor if it has the LT logo?)

We do not have the movements in yet! We will get lots of pics when we have them though. They will have the Geneva stripes and rhodium polish.

@ Chris

Nice watches ...but;

These will be added to our website to pre-order on January 3rd, 3012.
I think; i won't be here on Earth, for that long :T

Another question ...

What about the Valjoux 7750 movements that you have, laying around ?
Are there any plans for it, i'm curious.

Thanks, Chris..
How about the rotor? Decorated with Geneva stripes and also with LT logo or some sort of Lt script
or standard (non-LT customized) TOP grade rotor decoration (most likely Geneva stripes)?

Either way - its a great news that you were still able to source some ETAs. I know I speak for many here, when
I say that the extra cost you incur would be offset by purchases from those people who prefer Swiss powered
watches AND are OK to pay more for this opportunity).

Wow....these all look fantastic.

What a surprise to see an option for a fully decorated ETA 2824. That's quite a tempting prize. My only hesitation is that my V1 really hasn't been getting much wrist time...it seems like when I'm in the mood for a Lum-Tec, I reach for my M27 or M51.

I tend to think I'd be more inclined to wear the V7 though. Decisions....decisions....

Oh my...

I agree with Milos, the V1 Red Series is a show-stopper! :001_wub:


There are going to be some very tough decisions being made January 3rd... :scared:

Well, I just got off the phone with Lum-Tec, so I'll post the information I received to save them from getting a bunch more calls... :T

The movement and the dial from the V1 Red is NOT compatible with the other V series cases....like the V7 for example.

So now I guess I have to choose between the V1 Red and the V7. :cursing:

Lol, I kind of figured this would be the case due to the different movements, but I was already in the middle of drafting an email to Chris asking him a very similar question just to be sure (I'd love to have the dial and movement from the V1 Red in a PVD case).


Oh well, I guess that's one less email Chris will have to deal with today! :001_tongue:

no V-series chronograph??

Thanks for the spy photos Chris....they all look great! A V7 will definitely be making its way to Boston in 2012. I was waiting to see if their was going to be a chronograph offering in the V-line for 2012...guess not. Oh well......I will certainly be more than happy with a V7!

Thanks again for providing photos of the upcoming models.

Just to clarify,

The V1 RED dial and movement will ONLY be available in the V1 RED model.

I may become a drug dealer so I can afford all of te 2012 models I want! You are evil Chris!

The V5 is the one I have been anxiously anticipating, and now the V1 RED comes and were back to square 1....I have a feeling those will sell out fast.

Great work as usual. You'll be getting a pre-order from me on one of these!
