This has been in the works for a while and I think this will be great for people who missed out on the first one or would like a second LE with the other choices we discussed.

In due time I will start the design process, but with some modifications. I think I have learned from previous mistakes and this should be even smoother.

In this version we are going higher end, with an ETA 7750 movement and an elaborate dial. Our choices will be:

Dial color: Silver or black. To minimize polarization and since they where our second and third choices previously.

Size: 44 or 47MM

Strap choice. This time we will be able to choose the straps.

Hand design and colour.

Crown design.

Numeral design (Romans? :D )

Subdial numeral design.

Subdial colour



We need at least 20 people this time, and the price will not be lower than production since the ETA movements sell themselves and the profit margin is much smaller for Gunter, I will try and make sure it does not exceed the 850 Mark though!

Watch will contain both a date and day feature!

Seeing the guys get so excited and delighted by the first batch was reward enough, and I am glad to be able to do this!

I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by how smooth the payment went through, I was sure I was going to be stuck with at least one extra watch! Thanks allot guys, especially the new members!

I voted 'Maybe'

Very definite on design choice and wouldn't want to prevent someone who hasn't had a chance to get in yet to have one (because I would also want it to be a low number run).

I voted NO, just because I have plenty of chronos and the original selection was just so-so for my taste.

I'll be a maybe, but only if its 44mm and I would be somewhat picky about design choices as well.

I voted "maybe," although it is towards the affirmative end of the "maybe" spectrum. Given the last one was 47mm, I would really like it if this one is 44mm. Other than that, though, I would probably be onboard with any other design/style decisions, especially if it's day-date.

Maybe. I'd like to see pics of the last one, to hear a bit more about exactly what this watch will be before I'd commit. But, I'm interested!

Voted maybe as size will be a determinant for me i.e. it would probably need to be 44mm for me to be in (however will reserve final judgement until I actually see my new LE).

Very keen on the chrono though so if it all lines up and the numbers are good, I'll be very very happy to receive another LE.

You're a sucker for punishment Altair but we're all very glad that you are :mrgreen:
