Plain smoked rear glass could be an interesting option as well.

Do we need a poll to determine which model from page 32 will be the final with/without an exhibition case back as well as glass type for case back?

I ask as it would seem that any subsequent suggestions have gained little or no traction.

I would say so, just so's we close it off.

PS I also would back the exhibition back and the rotor as illustrated. I see little point to a smoked back since the idea would be to see the rotor/movement, surely?

The overall design is looking very desirable so I think better for an FLE rather than something idiosyncratic/unique which only appeals to a few.

Yes please Kip, it's time to decide on a single design so we can move this forward.

Hi Kip,
Please run the poll before someone asks if this is possible in a pocket watch!

Not really 'again', as the intention by CW to release a 'Military' related watch was made known at the Manchester GTG back in mid-April and has been discussed several times on here since.
Poppycock - and there's a word you don't here often any more! Field watch fine, tons around, but going to the UK armed forced is somewhat different, especially when you know who has already been there and done it - as they did first and professionally with both Jaguar and Concord. What happened to Jaguars legal case against CW - was it settled?

Kip, I will address this to you as you are closest to the supply chain. If we were to decide tomorrow, how long till actual delivery and subsequent payment?

As requested by a few members, all black second hand to match the rest of the hands, also removed the FLE text from the dial.

Just added a quick one of the proposed caseback without the HE valve and titanium textImage

^^^ Looks good. If I needed another GMT watch, I'd sign up for that.
