Actually that could be incorrect unless something has changed. If it was automatic with sign-up everyone would have it. When Wing launched Aragon he set it up automatically for some long time customers. As Scantor aka Steve mentioned. I never signed up for anything to become a VIP. If something has changed ... Post a link for others to "sign up".I believe all you have to do is Sign Up.
It's a good deal, but to say it might be the best is a bit of a stretch, but also subjective. Based strictly on price and being an automatic chronograph with a sapphire crystal, this one is a better price. Would I buy it? Hell no! I am not a fan of a pressed on case back.The $450 intro price is absolutely ludicrous. This might be the best value watch buy of any brand at the moment.

That's a really good deal for an auto chronograph, but it's definitely built to a less expensive price point than the DM4. Leather strap vs stainless steel. Press-on caseback vs screw down. Lume only on hands. Fixed painted bezel vs 120 click rotating ceramic w lume. 100m WR. 21,600 vph vs 28,800 vph. I'll also assume no AR coating since it's not mentioned.
All of your points are valid UT. The Tissot posted was based solely on price. Even without using the $20.00 code the $319.00 comes in $179.96 less factoring the cost to my door in my neck of the woods. The lower build quality, etc. could be somewhat justified by the almost $200.00 price difference.
I was contemplating to do a mod for a friend of mine. He asked Wing if it would work and was told the parts are interchangeable. I think Wing scared him when he said the bezel would fit the cases. "The problem is the bezel spring was made very precise and would be difficult to remove." I'm actually glad because I don't mind risking damage to my stuff, but with other folks stuff that's a different story. I ponied up the $498.96 to see if it would be feasible. I wanted to check out the movement anyhow.
