Could we have the blue Hombre dial on the Dartmouth?

Christopher Ward logo at 12

Indented or applied twin flags at 6 (not sure if it has to be one or the other on the Hombre)

Keep hour and minute markers as they are on the standard model?

IF THE HOMBRE DIAL CAN ONLY BE USED ON A TRIDENT PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES FOR THIS SUGGESTION
There have already been some Dartmouth Ombre suggestions from Politel, which are rather splendid:

The many suggestions have still brought me to an idea:

maybe there will be a few more colorful acts and then it might look good, right? :oops:

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.
EDIT

Thanks Welshlad - I hadn't picked up on these!

They look the business :thumbup:

Even though I'm not a fan of the 9 o'clock logo, I think Ombre and C60 work well together. Better than at C65.

Are you able to do the blue Dartmouth Ombre using a grey or black 5 minute marker bezel please?

Thanks.

I'm not a Photoshop professional, but I'll try. :oops:
I think the color gray does not work . A steel bezel is better suited.

The details would be better to discuss in the next round.

I have a feeling that the majority are after something different to me so I think I’ll declare myself out now. Good luck guys

The next elimination process is going to be interesting. It seems there are small groups that like this... and this... and that. Everyone wants their own FLE to made. I remember a little more unification on nice designs in the past but this is certainly a different approach. I'm like this right now keeping up... :crazy:.

I’ve only been part of one on the past, the 2017, but there certainly seamed more structure and unity to get it sorted in a constructive manner. This is just a free for all and a mess at the moment in my opinion. I can’t cope with it either.

Hold on!
There will be many ideas until the FLE is realized or dies (I hope not)

It's not even decided whether C60 or C65

That’s the problem, idea after idea after idea. There’s too many things going on for my liking I’m afraid

It's fine that there are lots of ideas being put forward. There doesn't need to be a limit on them. We'll just say stop on Sunday.

Then we will enter a process to whittle things down in a sensible way, but don't worry about that for now. Just enjoy the great ideas that are still coming forward. :)

Maybe on the next FLE best approach would be to again have CW create a few examples but this time with stricter/clearer rules to follow. Then right from the start let the process have it's own forum section and have each example (and appropriate mock-ups) be it's own thread. That would make it easier to keep up with everything and for sorting it all at the end. So instead of 26 pages all over the place you would have say 8 per model and it'd be a bit neater.

^^^^ Don't worry, it will all be neatly summarised when we get to the point of polls and making decisions. All you need to think about for now for each design is whether you'd buy it or not. You don't need to decide on a favourite yet.

Unfortunately, the approval for the PVD housing Midnightblue is not very large.
But maybe that will change yet.
I wouldn't say that it's not large. It's just not the most vocal. Wait for the votes.
