Colour-coating on some colours

There are reports in the community of some colours of the classic having a "peeling"-problem. There seems to be a coating on models like the cherry classic which does tend to peel itself under strain. As I do not have a visual account of this I can only refer to pictures of my chocolate-coloured classic having little blisters in the more-strained locations. See picture

experience

The Classic might be one of the stiffest binders made by Filofax but it is also a Classic, as the name implies. Many other companies have copied the design, I have never seen or touched a copy-cat feeling as good as the original Classic from Filofax. Making that cross in middle seems to be a challenge, because thats where all the other companies stumble.
