    I'm pretty sure Bill is referring to the 3 size options from the first post in this thread. I would assume that the survey will contain those options.

    could someone confirm if a 17.5cm wrist has the 50mm lugs "hanging over"?

    Sorry it took so long. Had to catch up with other stuff last night. Here are some watch on wrist comparisons. Sorry for the crappy picture quality, I don't really have the time to do any set up, I just pulled out my watches and took some pictures at the dining table. I also apologize for any viewing confusion caused by the lefty crowns; I prefer destro watches.

    My left wrist's circumference is 175mm on the hand side of the wrist bone and around 170mm around the bone (!). Wrist width is around 63mm and the height is around 40mm. Due to the softness of flesh, these measurements are probably only accurate to within 2-4mm. Obviously 175mm (17.5cm or 6 7/8 inches) wrist shapes will vary but these may help someone with flattish and smallish wrists like mine.

    Sinn EZM1: length 47.7 height 16.2 bezel dia. 41.3 case dia. 40.0 width 44.7
    This is my current daily wear. Very tall case, but Ti lightness makes it wear very comfortably. Awesome on rubber.

    Omega Seamster GMT Great White: length 47.3 height 13.9 bezel dia. 41.0 case dia. 41.3 width 45.3
    My alternate daily wear. Heavier steel case, feels slimmer than the EZM1 due to the rounded edges and lug profile. Very comfortable.

    Kobold Soarway: length 50.8 height 10.3 41.4 case dia. 40.0 width 45.9
    Haven't worn it more than a few hours so can't comment on the comfort. Waiting to convert to destro+blue dial. This watch's lug length is closest to 50mm.

    MKII Blackwater: length 47.7 height 13.5 bezel dia. 39.4 case dia. 41.8 width 43.5
    Super slim light watch. Very comfortable to wear. It wears slimmer than the 13.5 height because of the rounded profile. I'm actually thinking about giving it a "melt job" to get rid of all the edges and make it like a bead-blasted pebble.

    Hope that gives some people a reference for the different watch sizes we're discussing. With proper weight distribution, I feel that a Project 300 with 50mm length could be comfortable for me, but given my druthers, I'd probably take a slightly smaller (and thus lighter) case.

    Note: on measurement methodology: All measurements in mm. Wrist circumference measurements were done with a tape measure. All others with plastic (no scratch(tm)) calipers. Should be good to within 0.2mm though. Length is lug tip-to-lug tip. Case diameters were taken 4 o'clock-10 o'clock except for the Seiko (2 to 8). Width was taken crown tip to edge of case at same height as crown.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Thank you for a very good report on this! That from my POV shows that a smaller lug to lug length would be a good idea for us in the under 18cm category.. wonder if thats the majority of people or not, though..

    I definitely want a smaller lug-to-lug. I have a very pencil-ish 6 inch wrist (15.24cm)

    I have the same sized wrist although that hasn't stopped from wearing pretty much anything in the size range proposed.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    I am working on the survey today. I am trying to fill in some more questions that are sure to come up as the design process continues such as the date versus non-date issue and the "Big-triangle" versus "12 at 12 o'clock" question.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Hello Bill, and Thanks-

    Can I plug the 'Big-Triangle, black-date-wheel and date-at-4:30' version now?

    Take Care; Thanks again.

    As long as there is a "big triangle 3 6 9 and no date" option I'm good. If all the options are date, I'd probably drop out, as you can't do destro with out a lot more pain.
