just my two penneth...

I like the most recent version the best - white, batons, modern typeface etc..

Would the date window "poke through" the numeral 3? I reckon that would look really good! Also a choice of colour on the second would be very cool.

possibly have the perimeter/border of the date window in the same colour as the second hand?

Is the case brushed or polished? cant quite make it out....

The date would poke through the 3, there would be no border to the date window.

The case is brushed with a polished bezel.

sounds interesting

must be satisfying to be able to knockup an idea (albeit with a fair plan already in the works) and produce a good looking quality product, you must be a happy chap Roy

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?

Alan if I do make it then you can have any colour seconds hand you wish and a black calendar wheel. smile.gif

Excellent.

And I still like the original font best and all white markers.

I like this the best. wink.gif

I think Roy got it right first time. Unlike "some" places that design by democracy but the Dark Lord still has the final say. laugh.giflaugh.gif Just my VVHO. wink2.gif

I think that's about right but the number 3 needs adding with or without the date IMHO.

Perhaps the font could be slightly different but not as radical as the other one.

A dull orange would look nice but we've already done orange. How about cream instead of white?

Each to his own PG, but I still prefer a non-serif font. On a high tech carbon fibre dial, that serif font just looks too old fashioned. (IMVHO). cool.gif

I'd like it with a "3" and no date on simple black dial. smile.gif

Next project for Roy in MVVHO. wink.gif

It might, also, look good with a silver dial and gold dial furniture for us vintage fans?

Good basic dial Roy, I like your thinking. biggrin.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.

Actually after sleeping on it, the qriginal design is growing on me, which is as well as it does seem to be popular with the gang wink2.gif

I`d still prefer without date and with pale yellow or possibly as Paul said cream hands smile.gif

Great idea Stan, or how about two tone copper and cream with black numerals or grey and black with white numerals wink2.gif

Something like this from Griff`s original post heart.gifheart.gif

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

This is my favorite by a fair bit. No date, no batons, modern font. White is good, might spring for a coloured second hand if Roy offers that option.
