The emails for the September Round #1 have been sent out.
The Nassau replacement link is now available. Sorry for the delay in getting these up on the site and getting the ordering procedure down. Most of the time was spent on trying to find a way to get the S&H costs down to something reasonable for the customers that didn’t qualify for a free link. The best I can do at the moment is standard USPS Priority for our domestic customers. For the international customers I was able to do more for you. I have a “First Class-Uninsured” option available now for $12.50, which is considerably better than the $30+ that USPS Priority Mail International now costs.
I could have done a bit better, and I may be able to do so in few weeks, but I didn’t want to wait any longer to put this part up for ordering. There is a bug in the USPS system that prevents our web store from quoting First Class Mail as an option for US or International customers. If I was able to tap this the S&H could be lower for this link. If I had realized that this was a bug in the USPS system rather than a mistake in setting up the site on my part I would have had this issue fixed sooner.
For returning Mk II customers we will generate coupons so that you can order the part for free and have it shipped for free. For those of you that were on the Nassau Link mailing list we have already sent out coupon codes to those that qualify for the free replacement link. To qualify:
- A customer wishing to purchase a Nassau link free of charge had to have purchased a Mk II watch directly from Mk II in the past. If you are a Project GMT or Project 300 pre-order customer you also qualify.
- Submit a ticket to Service & Parts to request a coupon code.
The following is a quick tutorial for the customers that are entitled to receive the Nassau replacement link free of charge. The offer is open to all customers that have purchased a Mk II watch from Mk II in the past, doesn’t matter when or which watch just as long as we have a record of it.

I have, finally, done the lottery for the August round. I know it’s a bit last minute. The emails with the coupon codes were just sent out via email. If there are still spots open from this group of 25 people we will roll that over to the September round.
Anyone that has signed up for the mailing list since June, and wasn’t selected for the August round, will be rolled over to the September round. To sign up for the lottery please submit your email address here.
We are pleased to announce that the Nassau will return next year. We will be filling out the paperwork later this week to start a new batch of parts for the Nassau. At the moment this is all the information that we will have available. If you already signed up for the mailing list on this page you don’t need to sign-up again. For all others that are interested please sign up here for the mailing list by clicking on any one of the watches pictured and adding your email address to the mailing list.
