Re: FLE #8 design submissions

If you are referring to the "Ombre" color scheme, I think it is a possibility. If you are referring to taking a C60 Ombre dial (markers and all) I would say no.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

I will take the blame for causing any confusion or misinformation, or lack of, regarding this potential FLE. This all started with my original post here. Based on those submissions the guidelines were set as follows... We can get an applied device i.e. the Twin Flags, at 12 but there will be NO Logo...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

i realize that many of these submissions are in fun, but quite frankly, other than throwing ideas against the wall I don't get it. A GMT was not voted in so why are we wasting time on it? A date window is a great idea but if we can't show it so it will properly accommodate a full date what is the po...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

I have tried to put together one post that has the design proposals so far. Frankly my brain hurts trying to sort these out. I have attempted to include all submissions that adhere pretty much to the base models voted on. This is only a temporary summary so one does not have to scroll through 20 pag...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Also to remind, as its not been mentioned recently, that the option of a display case back, with 300m WR , is available to us; again my preference. Guy Are we sure that this is the case? The reason I ask is because when this was suggested for the GMT FLE which didn’t get the support, it was implied...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

You are correct, but we don't have any 40mm mock ups.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

It has been my personal feeling that the original images from CW with the black background made the watch appear to dark. I have acquired new images on a white background. Perhaps we can have the Photoshop guys remake some of the ideas on these. I just think it would look better and be a better comp...

As a catchall, perhaps mods could flag these up with the owners and be pro-active.
It might surprise you, but I have been doing this for years. I do not get involved with resolutions, but will point CW towards issues in case they haven't seen them.

Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

The forum is still valuable to CW, because it shows they are a 'real' company, not just a fancy website. I bought my first CW after reading the forum, which gave me the confidence to buy. The company does seem to have a disdainful attitude toward the forum. They appear to read it occasionaly, but w...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

People need to just accept things as they are presented. The C60 has the logo at 9 to balance the date. The Dartmouth has at 12 because there is no date. That's it. There's been just as much mumbling about nonsensical changes as there's been potential mock-ups. Kip needs to get the poll up for the ...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

While I really appreciate the efforts of those that are contributing their Photoshop skills, as I have none, It would seem that we are getting little input or feedback from others. I would also recommend that we attempt to keep things as simple as possible. While moving into designs that include par...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Just in case anyone missed it, The C60 Trident Pro 600 40mm size is the majority choice based on the poll here.

Designs submitted should be based only on the C65 Dartmouth Series 1 and the C60 Trident Pro 600 MkIII

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600 MkIII FLE #8 size selection poll

Based on this poll....

We can now continue forward with designs based on the 40mm C60 Trident Pro 600 MkIII.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

In response to a couple of questions regarding the Dartmouth....

Although I still need 100% confirmation....yes we can probably add a date. but the movement would probably not be COSC if we did. Cost of dial would probably be unaffected as we will probably end up with a custom dial anyway.

We can get an applied device i.e. the Twin Flags, at 12 but there will be NO Logo changes or moves; so please don't ask.

We can alter the dial print (not the logo).
