    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    I've been wanting an MKII/ or an Omega SM300. It's a nice watch, but I think I'm going to contact Watchco and get my self a NOS... The closed 6 and 9 are throwing my off a bit as well.

    Also, the font and markers should be thicker and font could be tweaked a bit IMO.

    The insert doesn't look bad now, but it could just be so much more...


    Oh... and to keep my post on-topic, why oh why aren't the dial's "6" and "9" open???? Why?

    On the appearance of the Project 300 sapphire bezel insert.... In the Paradive sapphire 12-hour-bezel that I have...

    ...the BGW9 is on the underside (or is contained within) the sapphire. It appears as a silver-grey color in most normal light, but glows blue. This is just the way it is....I'm fine with it. I don't want an 'exact copy' of the original -- I want a better (meaning more durable) watch than the original one that this homage (not a copy) uses as its reference material or starting point.

    Edit: photo added after post to show the sapphire bezel and markings: Note for photo --this is a quick shot from my cell phone under bright cloudy-day natural light, no exposure modification, auto-ISO, daylight white balance, cropped, resized; no other jiggery-pokery...The numerals and and markings look a bit brighter than the bead-blasted surfaces around them, but not quite white, sort of light silver-grey....)


    On the subject of '6's and 9's' -- There has been quite a discussion and debate on this matter, but that all happened four to five years ago.... I consider the matter to be settled unless MKII decides to open it back up... Let's move on, please.

    See one of Bill's responses and take up research into the history of this Project and its evolution starting at ---> Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot) - Page 2

    Well, I'd rather we not move on... Sixes and nines want to be open!

    I championed this for date wheels here and now we have the superb Key West wheel...

    @ TheDude - Not to be rude, but are you a Plank Holder for this Project?

    Please don't take this the wrong way....

    If you are a Plank Holder (or were previously) I wish you had been around four or five years ago when this was 'discussed' early on - I was in favor of 'open 6's and 9's' (along with other ideas, some of my own suggestions included) that were not embraced or adopted.

    At this point, I just want the watch to come to me and get worn...

    No offense taken. I've made similar challenges when I was a plank holder.

    My status doesn't make it unreasonable or incorrect input/criticism though.

    Yes, mine just shipped ;^)

    They are no longer selling on the WatchCo site and have set up base in New Zealand. There are some threads on the Omega forum with more information. PM me if you have problems finding it.
