Nicely put Charlie! I agree with you, droping the GMT movement will save a lot of time and heart ache....

How does the GMT movement in the LRRP function?
I like the two simple configuration approach, but I would offer one adjustment, which would be in the spirit of the GMT Master. Produce a set of bezel inserts (Coke, Pepsi, Blue, Black) and allow buyers to purchase the set. If they're made to the same specs, but in different colors, I would hope the added cost would be small and I think many of us would happily pay an extra fee for the full set.
Oh, and the nice people at IMDB.com might take issue with us using that name.
I like both these configurations, and your logic about fewer options reducing burden is excellent. I used to own a clothing company, and the more colors and options, the longer everything takes. The effect can be exponential.
I love "Pan-America" and would use it for both versions, since the the black watch, although worn by Pussy, was conceived and designed for PanAm pilots. It would also make production easier I imagine to have a single design for logo, name and indices. If 2 names are desired, I suggest "Zulu" for the black one, since it is still pilot and govt/militaryslang for GMT time, and the black watches were for pilots.
Also, if the cyclopses are factory installed in switzerland, I suggest all cyclops. If they are added individually by bill, I'd request a no cyclops option, since deleting that feature won't create a extra part number.
The more I read 'Pan-America', the more I love it.... I'm convinced we've found our name!

Pan-America is brilliant.
If you get desperate you could call the black dialed version the Pan-Europa.
Been away a while.
Remember I'm #2 in line. :) :) :)
Definitely these end links - the ones you took photos of on my Red Sub.
I'm all for silver hands, matte black face (non-gilt). An all-blue bezel would be a dream since this is military. I know I have mentioned this in the past but the photo in an earlier post on the blue nato is striking. I also like the all red hand but I would be partial to a small arrow like the original.
SILVER- roulette wheel, and a cyclops would be killer to show it off. Open 6s and 9s.
I am torn about the bracelet. Rivets would be nice, but as long as it's tapered I'm fine.
Bezel and datewheel fonts are -critical-. These cannot look modern and must have the proper thickness. I am fine with aluminum inserts.
