 Then you should know how this works.  Luxire is always very accommodating when requests are made for specific fabrics or mills, like the request a few posts above yours.  Do your homework and make suggestions on what you would like to see.

Here's the vegano marron I received three years ago.  No polish or anything else on them yet.  The color difference is subtle compared with what I received last week, but there is a difference.    
   This is precisely my experience.  The top picture is what I received three years ago and the bottom accurately portrays what I received last week.
If anyone is looking for a size 36 (90 mm) Carmina belt in brown (vegano marron), pm me.  Looks like I need the 95 mm and would rather sell it to someone in the U.S. than pay to ship it back overseas.   On a related note, is it my imagination or has the vegano marron color changed in the past three years?  I received a new pair of Rain last cap toes in brown (vegano marron) and the depth and nuances of the color appear much better to an older pair I have.
This thread works if we all recognize that the PMW world is not always black and white.  There are gray areas and fringe PMW's that should not be immediately shouted down and told to go to TWAT.  Everyone has valid arguments on why a vintage Omega should or should not be in this thread.  The problem is when certain posters take very rigid positions and immediately tell the poster to get that watch out of here.  How about a little tolerance and recognition for the fact it's...
 This is a huge competitive differentiator.  Are you coming to Chicago?
I, for one, appreciate the fact that @RogerP posted that vintage Omega.  One, to appreciate a beautiful time piece, but, more importantly, to open my eyes to the fact that such a beautiful time piece can be had for sub $1,000.  I'm not sure I have the knowledge, patience and risk tolerance to enter the vintage world, but I am intrigued.
 I hope these cost increases are limited to your espoke service.  I'd hate to see your espoke venture ruin your bread and butter normal shirt, trousers and jacket making business due to significant cost increases.
The mechanical versions are on KW's website for $350 - 390, depending on the movement used.  I did not know that he offered a quartz option.
