Re: FLE #8 Design Vote #2

I mirror Mikkei's remarks above. While running a second round of voting didn't change the outcome (you were right Kip!), it was the right thing to do and at least puts a line under the FLE project, for now at least. Hopefully some of the more popular design cues can be picked up by CW for potential ...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

The trouble is we’re starting to open up new desires and design options - back to where we were several weeks ago. Some of these suggestions are great but i’d Suggest it’s the top 4 or so designs or nothing! :D 100% agree. The aim is to see if any of the proposals garner enough votes to make them a...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

Having lots of options didn't reduce focus. All everyone had to do was go through each design, one by one, and for each one decide if they would buy it or not. A simple yes/no decision for each one. That would be the same for another vote with, say, just a handful of options. That's where our opini...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

Devils advocate here. So what some of you are saying is that the poll question... Please vote for any, and only, those that you would buy. ...was to complicated. No, I don't see that anybody said that. I believe there may have simply been too many options for a meaningful leader to emerge. By reduc...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

And I'm not sure that picking up the football and going home is the right way forward. Surely the top 10 designs (or 5 or 7 or whatever should now go to the next round to let members decide if they would be prepared to change their vote if their first option(s) didn't make it through? In life it is...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

Far too many choices which splintered the vote :( Appreciate the sentiment but there was no limitation on what could be voted on. You could vote for one or vote for all, assuming you would be willing to buy. Voting was specifically structured this way to negate the vote being splintered. Guy Sent f...

Re: When will I get my watch?

A comment by Mike France yesterday at the GTG, whilst admitting the current slow dispatch times are not good and steps are being taken to improve them, along with apologising for the situation, was that with the release of the C60 Abyss and C65 Anthropocene CW had been amazed and somewhat caught of...

Every. Single. Time. Seriously, it's pathetic. Get some lapel mics, a roving audience mic, a small mixing panel feeding the Youtube uplink and done.

Re: White Chrono

This offers good legibility. The style will be subjective.

Re: White Chrono

This is 44mm (and does wear as such). I've got the grey sunburst version and love it. Definitely priced well. I've bought from Shopworn and can wholeheartedly recommend them - US based though so watch out for duty and taxes. https://www.shopworn.com/shop/alpina-startimer-classic-chronograph-automati...

Re: White Chrono

I've been through this :-D The automatic requirement will cause difficulty at that price point. Additionally, many manufacturers seem to think that polished hands look best against a white dial - I have no idea why! I looked for a similar watch for a long time and eventually paid significantly more ...
