    Hi,

    I agree with you.

    Re: 3, 6, 9

    Let me try to explain (which is going to be difficult in English...)

    When you draw a virtual cirkel touching all the inner edges of all hour markers, the edges of the numbers are 'flush' with that circkel. Enlarging the numbers just a little will make them more 'interesting' and stand out more. Only a little will be enough!

    I think it shows great promise. What is the font called?

    I was doing more work on the side view. This evening. Its starting to come together but needs more tweaking before I show you guys.

    I'm with you Menno, and I understand, and can visualize your point there - Good thought there.

    That Pluto font looks great! Great suggestion; Thank You. I'm with Menno and think the 3, 6, and 9 could be just a tiny bit larger, and then would really stand out.
