We have made its to the end of the design phase. The parameters will be submitted to CWL for drawings and final pricing.

This part will take a bit of time.

Downer will be putting a non binding poll that you do need to think about. Your vote will weigh heavy on the actual production of our 2015 FLE. Watch for it.

Thank you to all have participated in this process so far. I do hope you have had some fun along the way.

It has certainly been interesting.

Thank you to the team for doing what is inevitably a difficult, stressful and often thankless task. And of course to Chris and his team who continue to produce these special editions. Well done, guys.

We finally made it, thanks to the organisers and again to Chris for bringing back the FLE, it's going to be a special one this time round I think.

Well done to all involved, it has turned out very well indeed.
I may have gone for one if I hadn't snapped up my lovely C9 FLE.

I really enjoyed the whole process! One of the things I love about CWL! I'm excited about the final product.

I've just realised something. This is the sixth FLE, and it has taken us (well, not me for the first three) until now to get a C5 of some description. I think this was needed.

Given how close the C65 v C5 voting was, I'm not surprised to see the "will you/won't you" voting so close. I'd expect probably 60 people to be quite keen by the time the poll closes.

Think of it as the 10 year CW Forum Anniversary FLE. The Forum will be 10 years old on December 11, 2015. :D

Perhaps the watch should have something that signified that. Like if the text on the dial said "10th Anniversary" or the back had "2005-2015" on it. I certainly would have preferred that over MMXV but, oh well, too late.

Be careful what you wish for.

It could end up as MMV - MMXV.

HAHA! I know because I pushed for something different from "Limited Edition" and instead we got something REALLY different. Sometimes best to just go with the flow. :thumbup:
