^^ you can leave all my submissions out of there as they are not approved. Kip will blow a fuse when he has to look at those again. :lol:

Very well, I guess the forum just wants a color variation of an existing model. I deleted my posts so i won't upset anybody. Good luck!

It would have been helpful if it was mentioned earlier that only color changes are allowed for a FLE. Or maybe I just missed that memo. I'll leave now. :wave:

All my designs submissions had dial, movement, date and/or bezel changes and that was not permitted.

That collage from @shirehorse is gonna make Kips job a lot easier I reckon. Top work that. Just need one for the C60’s (which is where my vote still currently lies) and on we go :thumbup:

Ok, so I've been squinting at C60s for a while and have come up with the collage below. It's late so I've probably missed one or two, or even have duplicates..! If so, let me know and I can adjust this easily.

I've grouped approximately by style, according to my eye anyway!

not ruling myself out at this stage just in case something is designed that I like and just maybe purchase. I will watch with keen interest

Frank I have joined your facebook group pending approval. I am really keen to see if A) you are seroise about producing your own LE and B) you can stimulate 25 people from your 600 members and reach an agreement. You have always managed to produce designs I like.

There is a helluva lotta blue there, but there is exactly ONE variant that *I* would vote for and that’s the one smack in the middle. Brilliant design.

There are however a number of C65 designs that I’d vote for, however they are limited to those with either green or red dials... and with bronze bits. I’d be happy to see any of those or the blue ombré C60 come up trumps.

Whereas my two are to the right of it. I really like the transparent twin flag dial.

Not sure about the Ombré. I never liked the brown but the blue looks better.

I’m out on the Dartmouth. Don’t like the indices.

In the last few days I got the impression that it's all about the C65 and the imagination was very far in the universe.
I am glad that the C60 was not completely forgotten.
So far it has not been decided which model will be FLE # 8.

After that, the final design of the C60 or C65 can still be discussed for a long time.

But the more special the opinions will be, like:
- I only buy if the point is red or
- I'm only interested in a white date window
- I really like the design, but i would buy the other one

Perhaps the two camps of the C60 and the C65 could determine their favorite and then vote on whether it goes on with the C60 or the C65 on.

This is the plan which @Kip will put into place over the next week or so.

I'll post a collage of the stuff I've done later (twas my intention before voting closes).

There's a few missed which members were keen on and I'll put each one on strap and bracelet for all to see.

For me all C60s are out, despite some nice designs, due to the 9o'clock name.
Any red or green C65 based designs are out as I don't like these colours on a watch.
Any grey or black C65 based designs are out as IMO I already have my best possible black dialled watch.
The blue GMTs are not allowed.
The blue 3,6,9s are not allowed.
The white needs to lose the minute markers between the batons so that's not for me.

Oh dear, I've got a blank page left - that's me out then.
