The original post for this thread was as follows:
We’re now ready for the second half of our third vote!
By now everyone should have had enough time to consider the three movement options that were voted for in the first half of this vote, and hopefully had an opportunity to discuss their thoughts on them in the third design thread. For this vote there will be three options that you will need to rank from most favorite, to least favorite.
Online vote forms will be sent out to everyone over the next 48 hours.
You will use the form to rank EACH of the following options:
Option 1: Soprod SOP A10-2 24H (Automatic GMT movement with date and hour, minute, central second, and a central 24-hour hand – can be adapted for use as a 24-hour watch)
Option 2: Soprod SOP 9335/A10-2* (Automatic GMT movement with magnified date, power reserve indicator, and hour, minute, central second, and a sub 24-hour hand – can be adapted for use as a regulator style watch)
Option 3: ETA 2893-2 Elaboré** (Automatic GMT movement with date and hour, minute, central second, and a central 24-hour hand – can be adapted for use as a 24-hour watch)
*(questionable availability) **(very questionable availability)
This vote will run for a full week (from 11 Feb. to 18 Feb.), or less if all eligible votes have been received. At the end of the vote the results will be tabulated and posted in this thread and in the project summary post of the FAQ thread.
IMPORTANT! We continue to have problems with a few participants who are not correctly entering their WUS member name in the vote form! PLEASE make every effort to correctly complete the vote form. Failure to do so can void your vote!
Finally, this thread is NOT for a continuing discussion of movements (please use the appropriate Design Thread for that). This thread is strictly for the posting of comments concerning the vote itself – and for anyone who is experiencing problems with the voting process.
The Usual Preamble Concerning Voting (please read – at least once):
Over the next 48 hours a vote form will be sent to the email address you used to register for the project. Please look for this email, fill out the form completely – and accurately – and then submit it. You will need to use the Unique Identifier (UI) number that was sent to you in a WUS PM by CzechMate when you first registered for the project. Please contact CzechMate if you do not receive your vote form by 12 Feb. at 21:00 GMT (and after you've checked your spam/junk folders).
REMEMBER: Voting in this project is mandatory! You must submit a vote to remain a registered participant. Failing to participate in three votes throughout the duration of this project will result in a person’s removal from the registration list. This is a project for active participants, not those speculating on a limited edition watch for its potential resale value.
A design element that receives the majority of the votes (>51%) will be considered the winner.
All voting for Project THOR will use the STV system, which allows a person to rank all options in order of their preference. In other words, if your first choice doesn't get enough votes to win, your vote will automatically roll over to your second choice, and if necessary (and applicable), your third choice and so on. This is an excellent system, one that we used to great success for our last Steinhart project watch. We suggest that you search Wikipedia for “single transferable vote” if you would like more detailed information on how the STV works.
Once the vote has concluded, and the results have been posted, those who are unsatisfied by its outcome have two options: They can either notify us that they wish to leave the project, or they can accept the result and continue on. There will no option to debate a vote result or to repeat it. If you decide to leave the project we would appreciate that you immediately notify us so that your position on the registration list can be given to the next person on the waiting list.
