    02A. General Discussion Thread - Pilot watch specific

    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry if this isn't my place, but I thought that perhaps a general discussion thread specific to the pilot watch would be good, kinda avoids people confusing details with the other models.

    First, I'd like to thank the design team for all that they have done on this, and for keeping it alive. I know they have a few cards up their sleeves, which I suspect they will reveal soon.

    I thought we might be able to garner a little enthusiasm, by discussing the few things left on the table. Some of the topics we probably want to discuss are bezel, crown, and strap/band. Have I missed anything?

    Bezel and crown
    I think the current case design is versatile, but it is also very modern. The idea of the coin edge bezel brings a bit of the original pilot into this design. I think what will set this model apart would be the bezel and crown.
    What would out options be?
    Cylindrical
    bevelled cylinder
    Spherical
    Onion
    Pumpkin
    Diamond

    Though a big sphere would be appropriate for the style,would it work with the case and bezel?
    Any thoughts?

    Check out the original General Discussion thread, it will get you up to speed. You can also see the results of the polls that have happened up til now. Three variations of the watch. It's a great project.

    Indeed we will soon be voting on :
    - logo or no logo or black on black
    - crown
    - bezel (note we did a render in the general thread but need confirmation from the oem exactly how they can make it on the current case)
    - case finish. Note in my promo video with prototype cases the pilot watch was on case with a finish which looks weathered (I think it looks awesome, like a world war 2 survivor) but perhaps some participants would prefer a standard stainless case (brushed with polished details)

    I thought we talked about the crown too, but maybe I was mixing up the two threads as I was reading back and forth a lot, I would think standard brushed stainless case, a nice add to it would be a crystal or mineral case back, almost all pilot watches have them these days. For the strap I would think a black or really dark brown to almost black (match the face) leather strap, but just my 2 cents.

    I'm looking forward to the next votes.
    Can we have a sneak peak on the logos to vote on?

    Happy the stealth appeared in the vote(and seems to be winning) Was hoping for a F72 logo too. Still feel it kinda needs both for balance.

    We decided we wanted to stick with the standard laid out by the past CWF projects with the use of the WUS logo. Considering the history it has with these projects, all other logo ideas and suggestions we had seemed a bit "forced", with nothing really supporting a switch away from the WUS logo.

    We do thank you for your suggestions though, and had considered all before deciding the best way forward was to stay true to the WUS logo, or none at all.

    We are ready to give a final push on the last details regarding the designs, so you may see some overlapping votes being started soon, in the interest of getting production started sooner rather than later.

    Thank you all
