    Boeing BB100 LE - different colour options. Opinions please!

    Hello everyone,

    I was chatting to Steve (ChipButty) last night about whether or not Bremont would change the colour scheme on the BB100, specifically the GMT hand. Below are some of the options we talked about, along with the original for comparison. We think using the Boeing blue on the GMT hand really helps tie the piece together. What do you think?

    The original:


    Option one:



    Option two:



    Option three:



    Let us know what you think, and thanks to Steve for his PhotoShopping skills - mine are nonexistent!

    My opinion, for what it's worth, is option 2 with all the extras in Boeing Blue.
    My reasoning for this......
    1. To use some Boeing Blue on the front of the watch!!
    2. Using some of this blue on the front helps to pair the front of the watch up with the rear of the watch where there is also some Boeing Blue.
    3. Using the blue-tipped seconds hand helps to tie this watch in with the rest of the range.
    4. Having a blue GMT helps this as a Boeing Ltd Ed as opposed to using a GMT from other watches.
    5. Brown and blue looks lovely together!!

    Thanks for reading ��

    Probably option 1 with the least favourite being the original

    How about the completely off track - a Boeing blue face with brown accents!!

    Maybe blue second hand with yellow GMT, to match the rest of the Boeing range.

    That could work, a neat idea..

    I'll see what can be done re. mocking up what you both like. Standby, I'll call you back.

    Personally I like option 3, or maybe an option 4 of all yellow/no red. The blue fades away into the background too much, in my opinion. I have no plans to buy one, though, so take that for what it is.

    While I agree that the blue is a neat color across the Boeing collection, my personal opinion is that the blue accents don't jive with this particular Boeing watch. I do like the red accents though! For me it would be the original or option 3

    Steve, here you go. The brown gets lost a little bit, I think. Unsure why this one is larger than the rest, but there we go...






    Tex, here's your preference:




    Brendan, here's yours. I think this one really works.


    And finally, here's an outsider option for Jeremy: blue/red. I think it could work, but not with a brown dial..

    Let's see what we can do, eh? Maybe if enough people get behind making a change, you never know!
