No offence taken at all Rod, wink.gif

I was just playing in my CAD program and came up with the design from my head, made a printing block and this is how it turned out. It was only going to be a rough draft but I like it a lot so will stick with it. I did not think of any other brand even though they may say I did. smile.gif

Roy: love the watch. But please, I'm not that keen on the serif font for the numerals. IMO on a hi-tech carbon fibre watch, they should be more modern.

What about numerals similar to those on a Breitling B1 or Aerospace? Blue seconds hand.

Yes, I know: I bet you wish you had not asked., But can you do a preview of it with B1 type numerals?

I'll see what I can come up with George over the weekend.

It actually looks very nice as it is in real life. The font is Times New Roman as the lettering. I really only wanted to use one dial typeface but I will see what I can do. wink.gif

Try font type "Gill Sans" if you have it Roy. Would appreciate a look at the mock up even if you don't make it.

OK how about a light blue only on the Arabics and the second hand. BTW I love it in red and if you start taking orders I'm in (red with white on black date).

I like that Roy, gives it a very modern and sporty look.

Bit too Breitling though don't you think ?

I like the Italics  smile.gif  but think it is better without the batons  sad.gif like below:

Love the typeface Roy, LOVE IT. and I think Hawky might be right about the batons. I don't think its TOO Breitling, but if you think it is, what about a non-italic style? That might be just enough to distance it.

Comments for and against are most welcome, it's only a prototype, I may not even make it.  wink.gif

I hope you do make it - I love the idea.

How about a bright blue second hand?

And white on black date?

And, what about AR coated crystal... punk.gif

That is very nice Paul, I`d go for that punk.gifpunk.gif

Roy the hands are OK with me, I would like, as I said to have them in yellow, any chance of seeing how this would look? wink2.gif

You don't think it's too sparce without the batons ?

It has be be right before I make another printing block, it takes too long and costs too much to do it and then change the layout.

No I feel it gives it a very modern high tech feel, mind you I wonder how it would look with small triangles instead of dots at the 5 minute spaces between the numbers or would that be too much of a hassle?

No, its not too bad. Perhaps not having the hour dots, aand half size batons beteen the 12, 3, 6, 8?

Roy, how difficult would it be for you to punch the date aperture at the 4 o'clock position? Or is that a step too far?

No I'm using dots as I will be filling them with luminous compound.
