    Pen OLD THREAD - Vote Thread 4: The Theme

    Design Vote 4: “The Theme”

    THIS VOTE IS NOW CLOSED!

    Please use the appropriate design thread to discuss the results of the this vote.



    The original text of this post:

    We’re now ready for our fourth vote!

    By now everyone should have had enough time to consider the various project themes that we have been discussing in design thread 4. For this vote there will be SEVEN options that you will need to rank from most favorite, to least favorite.

    This thread is NOT for a continuing discussion of themes (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.

    Online vote forms will be sent out to everyone over the next 24 hours (by 8 Mar.).

    You will use the form to rank EACH of the following options (in alphabetical order):
    Option 1: AVIATION (Inspired by navigation and pilot watch designs with an emphasis on a rugged, tool-like appearance.)
    Option 2: CLASSIC (Designs inspired by vintage timepieces of the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s. Typically defined by clean and simple styling.)
    Option 3: DIVE (Similar to the sport theme, but with a greater emphasis on water resistance, and the use of easily read dials and hands. Suitable for water sports – or washing the car.)
    Option 4: MODERN (Elegance, flair, and a focus on more modern styles, these designs are less conservative, and yet still appropriate for business and formal wear.)
    Option 5: NAVAL/MARINE (Inspired by the classic navy and marine designs found on ship’s chronometers and deck watches, these place great importance on high contrast dials and concise timekeeping aids.)
    Option 6: SPORT (Vibrant, bold, and rugged designs that can be used for any number of sporting activities, whether it’s automotive racing, sailing, or even skydiving.)
    Option 7: TRENCH/MILITARY (Trench designs are defined by function-over-form designs that are rough and ready in purpose, and characterized by more muted, non-flamboyant cues.)

    This vote will run for one full week (from 7 Mar. to 14 Mar.) – 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.


    IMPORTANT! PLEASE make every effort to correctly complete your vote form! Failure to do so will void your vote! Make sure that you rank every option – and equally important – that you don’t use the same ranking twice!



    The Usual Preamble Concerning Voting (please read – at least once):

    Over the next 24 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 8 Mar. 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.

    The outcome of this vote should be interesting.

    My hope is that it stays in line with the Steinhart philosophy of watches so that it can possibly inspire a future watch in the Steinhart line.

    Don't worry if we end up with a classic, white dial, we must just add golden numbers...half the people will see a classic white/golden watch, the other half a black/blue pilot watch...
