I see what you're saying; I would like either--good conversation point of on dial. Limited Edition or Ltd Ed on dial more traditional though, perhaps MMXV in script on back would be cool.

Reflecting the latest comments, I have (at the request of the original proposer) removed the "Magnus" choices and added the roman date option to the dial text.

I'd say we are done with this, and ready to start the polls. Anyone disagree?

_____________________________________________________

This is now the latest list:

Proposed choices so far:

Crystal Spec

  • Museum Grade Crystal for additional £65/$85
  • Standard C5 Slimline crystal

Dial Text

  • SLIMLINE
  • LIMITED EDITION
  • FORUM LE
  • MMXV
  • 2015 SLIMLINE
  • MECHANICAL
  • TWENTY-FIFTEEN
  • No text

Caseback Text

  • Forum Limited Edition 2015
  • Limited Edition 2015
  • Limited Edition
  • FLE
  • FLE 2015
  • No additional text (standard C5S caseback)

(Let's worry about the font later, and let's assume the serial number will be in the form xxx/xxx for all proposals)

Go for it!

Final suggestion.

Caseback; FORUM LIMITED EDITION MMXV?

as I don't feel the MMXV should be on the dial; after that - let's get voting. :thumbup:

It's my first time to join a FLE discussion and I am excited to get one since I like the design that won. So let's get voting.

MMXV

This one's better. Yes, I am digging it too. I just think Limited Edition feels it is like advertising on this classy Rosegold dial. Odd for a dress watch, for me anyway. I don't think putting the date ages it. It is the 2015 model...it's just being artsy and classy.

Heaven help us if there is a production hiccup and it gets delayed until 2016.

Don't panic, just joshing.
