Looking at the three options, I would not be surprised if we end up with a three way tie... after all, any of the three is going to look great on the wrist.

Kip: I’ve thrown my hat into the ring for all three - I wasn’t going to until I read in another thread that the hands and hour markers are all black. I wasn’t seriously interested previously as the renderings I saw had silver hands and markers. Black however has tipped my hand on this one. Kip, can you (or someone else) please confirm for me that it will actually have black rimmed hands and hour markers. If not, I’ll probably rethink my choice.

Voted for the black sweep hand; just looks perfect. I'm trying to love the red tips... but I don't believe they're needed here. Call me an old fart. :muede:

If the necessary votes are there and we do not have a single winner, then we will have a final selection vote.

I would have any of the three to be honest so voted all three.

whatever carrys the majority is good enough to get my money. Hopefully 24 others feel the same way.

Really like the look of these, what would the timescale be if one of these does get made?
