    Pen 008 - VOTE THREAD - COLORS - FINALE!

    Dear friends, dear participants,

    this is the
    FINAL
    vote for our project so far. (I can't rule out possible further vote once we reestablish a communication with our manufacturer, for example regarding packaging)

    In this vote thread, I would like to ask you to keep in mind Claudio's words regarding the color scheme:
    When we restarted the goal was to design a watch to honor Sir Frank Whittle and squadron 111, a watch with some hints of the two first aircrafts which used the Whittle’s engine, the Gloster Meteor and the Gloster E.28/39. A watch Sir Frank Whittle would recognize (though vaguely) as part of that era and that moment. Not necessarily a replica of the cockpit watch but a mix of the dials found in the cockpit.
    In that sense I think / feel, we have reached an 80% of the goal. We have the seconds hand, the little arrows of the subdials, the red for the 0, the minutes hand, and numbers very similar to what were there.
    The tiny minute numbers are a “guess”, some clocks from that era had these tiny numbers, others did not.
    The skeletonized hand is a trade off, between legibility and form, but it’s nice and still recognizable.
    Sadly (for me at least) we lost the strange power reserve dial.
    Maybe the thing that really bothers me is, because Steinhart is supposed to be (or was, I don’t know) the manufacturer, that somehow, even after the restart, we inherit some design clues.
    I feel, the overall design, “too strong”, a little “not so English as it should be”. Don´t get me wrong, I love it, and this kind of strong personality it is present in the cockpit of the meteor, but there is some intangible that I think it is missed. This bothers me more, because St, do not answer us. But I can live with it.
    Now we must vote for the color of the watch.
    And we can go for a modern watch and leave all history where it belongs, or go for a more historical approach.

    Some considerations:
    The B option has a color code taken from a Hamilton, a classic watch, known by many, that was used in American planes. Apparently some were also used by the RAF, hence its presence here.
    A and B are vintage, and contrary to what a member saw here, cockpits do get vintage color in time. Maybe what you saw were restored…
    C, D E F are the modern ones,.
    The orange is gorgeous IMHO. It has been done before, but, it’s still nice.
    The blue one (I) is a modern one but more muted. It’s nicer than I thought it would be.
    H and J are the more accurate from the historical point of view, J a little to plain, and H completely accurate and nice (one of my favorites).
    G It’s the same as H but with a touch of orange, which is the color of the 111 squadron BTW. So is a nice mix of history and tribute…IMHO
    Please use the appropriate design thread to discuss the results of the this vote.

    That was Claudio talking about his preliminary designs. Please keep his words in mind while we proceed to the vote:

    It’s now time to decide the colors. For this vote there will be several options for colors you will need to rank from your most favorite, to your least favorite choice.

    This thread is NOT for a continuing discussion of the design (please use the appropriate Design Thread for that). This thread is strictly for the posting of comments concerning the vote itself – or for anyone who is experiencing problems with the voting process to let us know.

    Online vote forms were sent out to everyone today, 28.6.2017.

    This vote will run for SEVEN days or less if all eligible votes are received before the end of the voting period. On the completion of the vote the results will be tabulated and posted in this thread and in the project summary post of the FAQ thread.

    ENJOY!

    Here are the options that are presented in the vote form:
