    Watch design contest

    Greetings,

    I have been around for not that long but feel at home here as I also have passion for watches the same way people around.

    I was thinking for quite some time to create a watch brand, which will not be a mushroom brand be assure of it, and in last week I had a push for it after some discussions around here.

    So here is what I propose you:
    • Post your designs on this thread -you have until the 2nd of June 2008 (23h59:59 GMT) to post them here
    • On the 3rd of June there will be a new thread poll created where all users can vote for their favorite watch
    • On the 6th of July most voted watch will be picked (total minimum number of votes has to be at least 100 for all models presented)
    • Winner of best design will have his design commissioned under my brand and as a reward he will have watch model created with his name or a name designated by him as well as receiving first piece made
    • Around end of November watches should be available for sale in time for Christmas shopping
    • All people from forum will have a 20% discount on watch price in case they buy one
    And now for the rules of the game:
    • Watch design should be unique (no copies or homages allowed)
    • Watch will always be mechanical (no quartz models)
    • Watch can either be a chrono or a simpler watch
    • Case can either be steel or titanium
    • Water Resistance up to 30ATM
    • Sapphire Glass
    • Movement to be used will be made in China (but no tourbillon movement due to cost reasons)
    • Watch will be assembled in China
    Waiting to see all your drawings posted and may the best design win.

    Just to clarify questions of some members, yes, you can and is appreciated if you post more than one design.

    Re: Watch design contest

    My ideas for the General specifications for the round watch are:
    Dial: approx. 40mm
    Case: Stainless Steel, Classic round case design.
    Bracelet / Strap: Leather Strap
    Movement: Basic 3 hand movement with date, either automatic or hand winding.
    Hands: Classic Baton with red or black colored tip (depending on color of dial)
    Glass: Sapphire.
    Crown: Screw on crown or non screw on crown, depending on water resistance.
    Water Resistance: approx. 50m

    Submitted by MMT.

    For more designs, please contact my attorney.

    Hi Ernie, I think you have made the right decision! Rest assured that this can't be a counterfeit watch design contest as you can see. Simply can't be!

    Good job!

    Thumbs Up Re: Watch design contest

    Ok, I'll kick in some of the designs that have been floating around in my head for some time now.

    Below are my versions of the perfect pilot/military watch based on simplicity of design, clarity, and function. All black date wheels with day and date, but they do not distract from the dial markings.

    The idea would be that the watches could have a nice leather strap or a steel bracelet that would be interchangeable. Titanium would be nice too to keep the weight down. Good quality lume would also be an essential.

    I'd hoped to have the ability to kick of my own manufacturing line one day but just don't seem to have the funds or time to get it going, so the next best thing would be a collaboration to see my watch go into production! I have some other designs in my head too - I'll try to draw them up before the deadline. Hope you guys like these, you have to vote to see them in production.

    Edit: Will post these all separately to help voting:

    BFG Pilot Professional Day/Date
