    Well I think it is based on the same system as 2, although admittedly for number 2 I'm not entirely sure whether the numbering indicates a gmt or, as I suspect, stands for something else instead.

    You don't think 247 could refer to Boeing 247?

    Welcome, and that's what I had in mind as well!

    That's what I had in mind too. And that then leads to this for BBM1 http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_Model_1

    Would seem to me like a perfect fit for the first LE after going into partnership?

    Now that's certainly a plausible theory! I know nothing about this plane, but the puzzle seems to fit together quite well for a headline LE release?

    Loving all the responses to this post guys.... All very exciting. I am taking the final pics of all the new releases this evening and can't wait to share them on Wednesday. Keep those guesses coming

    Neither did I, but if Wikipedia is right then it would be fitting to gave the first le in the partnership as the first plane that Boeing built. I'm thinking green MB2 style barrel and then the rotor yellow with red tips as a mirror of the colours from the plane?

    Come on Serena, are we close?!

    This all sounds very convincing and squashes my idea that the 247 was a new perpetual calendar.
    The Boeing 247 sounds much more likely.
    So....1) L/E Boeing Model 1
    2) Boeing 247
    3) Titanium
    4) MB3 - with GMT function? And yellow dial Giles???????

    Roll on 10am on wednesday (and 4pm next monday when I see them in the flesh in Basel!)

    The only think that perhaps goes against the Model 1 being the answer is that the supermarine descent is based on a seaplane. Would they base another watch on one?

    Oracle, perhaps it will still be a perpetual calendar with just made with parts of a 247? I guess there's no reason it can't have double meaning!
