    No, Thank You. This feature you have proposed sounds like another thing to break and/or leak to me. I would favor avoiding unnecessary features that would decrease or diminish the long-term durability of this watch.
    I'm with OmegaCosmicMan; solid, simple case-back for me. I like ljb187's idea of the MKII logo (perhaps it could be a negative carving), "Project 300", and "### of 300", and perhaps the year.

    Just noticed that my LE watch has "Nr. ###/250". That might even be better than "### of 300". Or even simpler still "###/300" none of this prepositional exposition. .

I'd argue now that a simple MOD style case back would be more suitable and just as effective as something fancier (it might save MKII a few bucks too). To emphasis and enhance the simple nature of this idea I prefer the larger WWII style. Replace the pheon with MKII's logo, add the name of the watch (maybe even abbreviate it: Prj. 300 for added mystique), am "001/300" serial number and perhaps an issuing date and you're good-to-go!

    This would be a good place to incorporate the Circle Y on all MKII watches.

    I'm liking four lines:
    MKII logo (perhaps raised instead of inset)
    P 300 circle-Y (perhaps also raised)
    ###/300
    YYYY-MM

    Totally agreed. I'd like to call it "sleek elegance".

    How about some sort of functional circular-scale.
    Oris uses a feet to meter scale. Maybe the 300 can have some sort of calendar scale like this:

    Here's another idea:

    it's a Spartan shield (photoshopped) - you know, as in "300" Spartans...
