No way to tell if it will even be repped.

Reps can take more than a year to be repped but sometimes they appear even before the general release of the Gen so it's anyone guess.

Well... The case is the same as the other 300s, but done in Titanium. So the CNC program is already there, and at most should be tuned as the Ti isn't "easy" as 316L steel to work on. But the end result is the same.

Then they have to re-do the sapphire because this one is curvy and not angled.

The dial is there but they need to rethink the colors used and recreate a new mask for the tampon printing of the writings.

The movement is basically the same one of the current ceramic Seamaster 300, they only need to reprint the rotor with 8806 instead of 8800 (the 8806 should simply be the no-date version of the 8800).

Finally the caseback, which need to be replaced with a closed and engraved one and the bracelet, which also is in titanium so they need to find a way to create it.

I'd say few months, if the situation in China will heal from the COVID-19...

Depends what the factories think will sell, the 007 stuff is always a good line because well, who doesn’t want to be James Bond,  but maybe the obscure stuff won’t sell, but you never know. 
You could email a couple of dealers and ask what they think. 
 

goid luck

Just don't jump on it as soon as it gets out. Let's the expert to check if it is good or not. Like for the cars, it's nearly always good to wait a bit before to purchase.
