I'm beginning to warm to number 6. It's reminding me of this seasons Albion's home shirt, white with blue pinstripes.
I also like the idea it could come complete (in my dreams), with a blue leather strap. \:D/

I'm not sure that another white / blue combo is the way forward, but we will see...
At the moment this is the only front runner C65 or C5SL that I wouldn't buy.

It's a re-working of the C2/20 FLE which is the most sought after FLE design on the second hand market. You always expect a lot of white/blue combo's to find favour, the process normally favours a safe and conservative choice rather than an edgy or bold design statement, but it has to be attractive enough for people to buy, so anything too far out there is a risk and probably won't sell enough. Would be nice to have a different colour scheme tho'

Also similar to the last FLE, which didn't sell well.
I'm not saying I don't like white and blue, it's just been done before.

Similarly, the C5SL in the lead are C9 5DA clones, which is a bit boring. On the other hand, I can see the appeal and could be convinced to dip my toe in.

The last FLE wasn't really a white & blue combo though, it just has a splash of blue on it. It had a blue second hand and blue crosshairs on the dial, but both the main hour markers and the hour & minute hands were black, so a much more muted effect...

Edit: there are also some very tiny minute numbers in blue.

Would be nice to have something distinctly different. The ones leading the pack at the moment don't really shout out to me as being something massively different to the standard model, except for #15 but then the colour is not to everyones taste

Fairly predictable blue face front runners at the moment.

I like 27A because it's slightly more different.
