here are our engraving choices based on the previous discussion.

1- Wright Brothers plane:

2- The X-1

3- An engraved globe, representing the breitling Source worldwide community

4- Common usefull conversions. Miles to kilometers, GMT timezones, etc. This is both usefull and somewhat unique.


If someone has graphics of the previous and think they would look good engraved please share.

Personally I like the Wright brothers idea and the conversion data idea. I took out the Tesla concept mainly because you guys suck :mrgreen:

I voted Wright Brothers, but any of them could look cool if well done. :mrgreen:

I voted X1, but if I had a second option I'd choose the Wright Brothers, with the globe in 3rd place.

The conversion scale sounds a bit too much like a Breritling caseback for me.

:yeahthat It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me if it ended up as the Wright Brothers too even though I voted X1 as my preference.

Cheers,

Dave.

Voted globe as I love the look of it!

My 2nd vote would be for the conversions if there's a tie, then the X-1 and finally the Wright Brother plane.

Some good options there Altair!

I voted Wright Brothers.

I should also correct a faux pas from the other thread on designs - I said Montpellier was the first manned flight, but Montpellier is a town in Frnace, it was Montgolfier - old age brain cramp.

I not sure if i have a say, cause i haven't made an official reservation and i really need to know how much dollars this watch is going to be, but if its going to be like the previous model and i wish i didn't miss out on that one then i vote for the conversion table with the x1 being second third would be the brothers.

Looks like it's a tie between the X1 and the globe. But since it seems mostwho voted otherwise would want the X1 as their second choice then that is what we are going with (Dammit!)

Mods, please close this thread.

This brings us to the end of the initial design phase, now we just have to wait on Gunter's input
