    Awesome mock ups! Thank you so much!

    +1 on the Size C case.

    Thanks for the mockups!

    I think I prefer the name in sans serif, UNLESS we go with Project 300 as the name -- in which case the script softens it a little bit.

    I agree with the Size C case, but I also have small wrists.

    As for the font, I prefer a cursive script like the original, but I'm not crazy on the font used in the mock-ups. I don't really like the look of the 'P'. Maybe it's just me.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Ah, I'll have to try to put together some other script and sans-serif variations then. I think that the script that I'm using now is closer in style to the Breitling Superpocean Heritage dial script than the Seamaster one; nice, but a little different. I'll play around with it once I get my desktop unpacked. "Swiss Made" is, naturally, Helvetica.

    Do people like the MkII logo with AUTOMATIC below? I think it's a pretty close approximation of the SM300.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Question for Bill: Do you have an estimate of the dial size of the various case size options? Am I right in that the diameter of the case is the diameter of the outer most part of the bezel?

    My EZM1 has a bezel diameter of 41.3mm and lug-tip-to-tip length of 47.5mm and wears pretty medium sized on my 7" wrist. Given the considerable width (depth?) of the bezel on the SM300, I think I might prefer it on the larger side, either 41.75mm or 42mm. Estimating the dial diameter from ASRSPR's mockups, I think it would be around 29.2mm for the A (42mm) option and around 28.5 for the (41.25mm) option. Even 29.2 is pretty small, I estimate the EZM is just around 29mm or so.

    I really love the mockups ASRSPR, very, very well done! Just imagining this watch with a flat sapphire bezel has me quivering with anticipation!

    I like MKII logo, not sure about the "automatic" beneath it; it might look cleaner with just MKII. I love the circle-Y and am somewhat ambivalent about the cursive font. Definitely not a fan of the san serif model name font combination or the circle-L. Pheon 300 looks pretty good as does Project 300. The "SWISS MADE" should be in Helvetica of course. I'm not interested in the 12-at-12 dial at all although I can see why people would be interested in one. I'd love to see different color options on the name. Having the name in red might be too similar to other watches, but perhaps a strong blue?

    I'd like to see option B for the case size, perhaps even A. My main concern abou option C is that the dial might be too small.

    It's funny how the Project 300 Watch Name thread works its way into this one, but then, as someone said before, they go hand in hand and can not be treated and considered independently.

    I like this particular dial lay-out as is and the Pheon name is actually growing on me. I have to ask, though, does the broad-arrow reference still make sense or do we use it because it sounds cool?
    Personally, I would prefer to replace 300 by CCC and the name of the watch would be pronounced as Pheon tri Sea That's pretty cool in my book.

    I like the big triangle. I'm 50/50 on the script and leaning towards liking it. Any objections to splitting the swiss made so the 6 marker fully extends?

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Thanks for your insight-

    I have to admit that the Pheon 300 is starting to gain some internal acceptance with me, although Project 300 remains my favorite name. When I first heard Pheon, I had a thought that if the watch ended up with that name, I'd probably drop out - But now I don't think so.

    Pheon may apply though, because of the big triangle motif, which resembles the head of a broad arrow.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    Looking at the mockup again, I think the Circle-Y could be a bit smaller, perhaps 20% or 25%? The MKII logo could be a bit smaller also. I also like the idea of having some color in the text of the name, perhaps red, blue, or gold/golden-yellow. I believe the RN uses gold thread in their badging and it would be a subtle nod in their direction.

    Re: Project 300: Dial and case design

    I like the fully extended 6-marker! Also experimenting with a variation of the Pheon script without the closed left-side loop on the P.



    Also, here's something slightly different: blunted big triangle to match the bezel lume pip. I don't know how I feel about this, actually. Gives it a slightly more modern look.
