Good stuff! :)
+1 :-)
Make that +2

While the blue doesn't 'pop' as much as the contest drawing drawing shows, it's still a lovely shade. Can't wait!

Sadly i missed the boat and didn't order one. It looks very good to me and right up there with the other FLEs. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of it and the red one in the flesh.

Darker than expected. Subtle it is.

Can't wait to see the red now, want some colour!

I like it. I am hoping that the red FLE is darker as well. It will be interesting to see.

These was the original prototypes we voted on.

These were the drawings which went a bit darker

And a black Trident for comparison

My first thought was that it was a black Trident but having brought the images together I can see that it is not but it is not as blues as I hoped but it may well grow on me.
I didn't order one of these, so take my comments for what they're worth, but I agree with Ianblyth. I was thinking that the color was going to be a little brighter. The drawing suggested to me that there might be slight "candy" quality to the blue. Maybe some greenish undertone. But that's not what I'm seeing in the prototype.

I did get the Red, and in that case, I wouldn't mind a slightly darker color, but I think the blue would have benefited from a little more vibrancy.

If you guys want a bright blue watch, get a C600 or the original C6LE. :)

This one is sophisticated, innit.

a few points from me

1) I like it

2) some of you need to seriously check your monitor calibrations, its so very very clearly a shade of blue and looks nothing like the black at all. Its not even close

3) remember how dull the blue C4 looked from some angles? almost greyish blue. Yet when you change the angle of the C4, the blue pops out and becomes almost shimmering. I suspect it will be the same here.

4) Bracelet suits the watch and I'm happy this is the version i'll go for.

case in point... C4 from wrong angle:

C4 from different angle

in the first pic, its a similar blue to the forum LE... so i have hopes that it'll share some of the depth of the C4

Regardless of what the differences in monitors show..the color will be "pantone 295C". :)

i do hope its just a tiny bit more exciting in real life than the pictures.

all the drawings of this watch suggested at least some form of pearlesence on the dial. Certainly the drawings above suggest that the bezel has a pearl finish on it, which is good. I'm hoping the dial has a similar "pop" to it.
