2015 FLE prototype arrival

Post by Kip » Thu Jul 16, 2015 2:19 pm

For some reason I cannot get the youtube link to work properly, but this will allow you to see the unwrapping of the 2015 FLE prototype. https://youtu.be/v3QIK7J_p8k

Yes I did notice that the prototype says 50 pieces.

Thanks for the preview Kip - the gold hands and numbers really work.

As for the 50 - hope not as I have a reservation for number 56.

I think the hands look great and are a good size for the dial.

Massive thumbs up from me.

I stopped following the process as I didn't like it but wow the prototype looks amazing.

I have to agree with Ferg it is much nicer than the mock up.
