    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    I really like the 300 m - 1000 ft solution! Indeed, it's better than the 'Project' text. One detail: according to the 'Système International d’Unites' in Paris, it's 'm' and not 'M', so this 300 m is the correct way of writing this.

    Furthermore, I love the look of all dials! However, the curved corners of the date window give the dial a more original look, the straight corners are very 'aftermarket' when you compare them. (As a matter of fact, it's the same with Seiko's 6105 dials)

    Looks like Watchco is unloading their SM300s.
    Where did you find them?

    Bill,

    Whilst I prefer the Project 300 on the dial, I am more than willing to go with your recommendation on the depth rating.

    Of the above dials I would go with dial B.

    :-D

    Edward thanks for this detail!

    I took some lume shots last night but want to wait for more feedback on the depth rating idea and dial mock-ups I posted before starting a new line of discussion. So please post your feedback!

    My preference is for dial B: no "Y", but with the word "Automatic"

    No depth rating please.
    It looks "wrong" on a 300 dial.

    The Breitling SuperOcean Heritage 42 may be a good reference to draw against. It does a lot of things right like mixing cursive and sans-serif fonts.

    On another note, the Circle Y logo has a lot of branding opportunity in it. Use it alone to create another product line, or combine it above MKII or kill MKII and rebrand as "Circle Y" Yao. Like Omega does with its Greek letter atop its name.

    Other than that I like it a lot

    Bill,

    If I vote for dial B again, does that count as 2 votes ;-D

    I assume this isn't the final choice we have to make, but if it were I would go with B.
