Slightly concerned that the rotor noise is quite pronounced in some orientations... has anyone else noted this? Nothing is rattling or obviously moving - maybe just a 2824 thing?

Glad I found this, mine sounds like my £50 Parnis straight out the box. Really coarse. I'll give it a couple of hours on the winder and see if it improves :(

Mine is still doing it occasionally.... I guess when the spring is at a certain tension. I am not quite sure what to make of it.

I have noticed a slight rattle when flicking my wrist but then I remember that I don't generally flick my wrist during the course of a day so the rattle becomes less of a concern. One thing I have noticed though is the sound my C10FLE makes when it is on the bedside table. The high beat ticking kept me from sleeping last night such that I had to put it back in the box! Poor thing. I did give it a loving polish before putting it back on this morning.

I have already decided it will be exactly as the 2013, but with a midnight blue to black sunburst dial and silver battons and hands.

No need for a new committee :-)

Very much, but with a radial pattern and a less harsh highlight colour :-)

Or at least not without moving the dial and movement further back... I would guess something like the 2892 would give you a few extra mm to play with ;)

The issue with the rehaut would have completely changed the FLE option that is your avatar (which was my choice in the election phase too). So with hindsight the evolution of the current FLE would appear to have been the best outcome.

Now the mock up above though look great, a sunburst blue/black as suggested would look awesome.

Just wondering if the C61 case would likely be a contender for the next FLE and if so such things as possibility of a rehaut should be clarified upfront.

Looking forward to what the team come up with next!!
