Most of you will have noticed by now that a Chinese Mechanical Watches Forum Limited Edition is well underway
We are getting to a point where it will become difficult to keep track of all the discussions, votes and such with the number of threads around the 2011 WUS Chinese Moonphase project increasing. That's why I created this thread, to keep an overview of all related threads and their status.
The 2011 project is currently organized by hked, linsook and martin_b. None of us have any commercial interest or gain in this project. Also no design decisions are made by us. Everything is determined by votes and is only limited by the constraints of the manufacturing party and cost. The current target budget is us$ 120,- excluding shipping.
It all started with this thread:
Once the style of watch was chosen, a thread to discuss all design aspects was opened. It can be found here:
This thread will be used throughout the project for discussions on all parts of the watch. This will avoid the voting threads being filled with more discussion than votes.
If you want to be in on this project, please add a post with your nickname to this thread
The number people have in the list is not the number you will get as Limited number. It probably will be used to determine the order in which people can choose a LE number.
Polls and votes
Everyone that has registered can vote on all design aspects (until the poll is closed of course )
Please only vote if you really intend to go forward with this watch.
It all started with the choice for the type of watch. The poll that has been used is closed, and can be found here:
It was decided to go for the Moonphase
First there was an poll on the markers made by blurrycloud. From this poll we found that it's difficult to get a consensus with just a single vote. This is why we started with the Single Transferable Vote system.
The results can be seen here: http://forums.watchuseek.com/f72/201...on-594138.html
The new poll where people can give a list of four choices in order of preference can be found below. It is/was open until Tuesday the 11th of October.
The winning choice was full Batons, with full Chinese markers as a close second.
Dial Color -closed-
This poll is already closed. It turned out that there was a large majority in favor of a cream dial
Poll is open until Friday night!
Poll is open until Tuesday:
Poll is open until Wednesday:
New polls and votes will also be linked to via this thread.
We expect to still have polls on crown, case, and on dial text/logos/...
To be continued!
Oh, and Please keep all discussions limited to the design thread, also procedural. If this thread will become huge we'll loose overview in the overview thread
