After the final vote is completed, and we have selected a winner, we will have a couple of smaller debates/votes to nail-down a couple of details.

These details include:

1. The precise dial wording - for example, should we replace "Slimline" or "Trident Classic Automatic" with other words?
2. The type of crystal - regular or museum grade (with a cost increase)?
3. The caseback wording/limited edition numbering?

I think all the strap choices are covered as standard upgrades, but it would be interesting to know if there are any other details that should be discussed?

1) "Stupendous Amazing Forum Ltd Ed Timepiece for truly Ltd Ed people" :lol:


Fortunately, you only get one vote. :)

Ha! Y'all are fortunate as I am full of ideas. . . or I'm full of something :löl:

That slimline could well end up being a classic and would fit very well into the current cw portfolio. The museum crystal would be an excellent upgrade and definitely worth the extra after my experience of owning a c11 v other cwmodels.
Cheers now

Wow, the more I look at the yellow C65 the more I like it. At the same time though, I picture the C5 being a better dress watch than the C65 being a casual one. Might be better money spent of the two.

I hope you all vote to have the museum crystal put on the watch even if it increases the price. I own three CWs and the C3 and C5 have the standard crystal and they reflect like all CWs do. My Makaira has the museum crystal though and it's damn near invisible. It's like there's nothing there when you look straight at it, and you can only see the crystal when you look at the sides. I think it would give the watch more class, for the dressy C5 anyway.

For Photobucket, remember to click on the photos (or right click, view image) and then download the image from the lower right options to get the very best resolution of the photos.

Re the metal bracelet, I thought the new style on the c9 sh21 would be the new bracelet. Is that not the case ? Are CW still producing the current c60/c65 bracelet in conjunction ?

The new bracelet is only for the Harrison Collection with 22mm lug width. The C60/65 will remain with the existing bracelet option.

Congratulations to the winners so far, nothing that I would buy though so will not be voting again. :(
No more Quartz (except when I cannot resist).

between the two i would probably go for the c65. however given the price I would really love to see a more realistic sketch as i feel yellow would be a very hit or miss color for me.

congrats to both designs for making it this far!

Thank you FLE team for the estimated prices, they seem very reasonable considering the work that will be going into producing such a short run.
I'd definitely go for the museum grade crystal if given a choice,

I too am sitting on the fence regarding the yellow until the colour can be tied down to a pantone colour.

I can't wait for the next round of voting.

Good to see the process reaching an outcome. I look forward to the next phase.

I think the estimated prices are reasonable for a limited edition. I do prefer one of the entrants over the other, but I shall keep this preference to myself for now.

Thanks kip and everyone else involved in managing this.

The C60 Kingfisher Yellow may be a good reference.
