    THAT's how you run a watch* project business.

    I will be working on a more detailed mock-up today. I think we can have a more meaningful discussion after we see the watch as a whole. I don't k now if the mock-up will be ready for publication today though.

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    How about engraving the name on the caseback instead of putting it on the dial?

    My preference would be a Big Triangle 3-6-9 no-date dial with "MKII Automatic" below the triangle.
    I would also accept the above with a Circle-Y (in a thick circle and a thick Y font) above the 6.

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    To lead off this is just a first cut to show you guys I am working on the case design. The following should be noted:

    * The dial is just showing what I had at the time. This isn't the final dial. The area between the center and 6 o'clock is just empty for the time being
    * The bezel insert design is just a modified Blackwater design I had and it looked roughly right. This is just to give the dial and case body some context. A lot more work needs to be done to the insert.
    * Yes there is no crown yet and obviously there isn't a space for it yet in this mock-up
    * The case dimensions are based on the survey (41.25 across the bezel and 48.60 mm end to end) The length isn't necessarily final but as I mentioned before I tried to keep the length down. My first impressions are that the dimensions work and the length is good but I haven't fully thought through the ramifications.

    Let me know your thoughts but try not to be too specific. This is just the first cut hot off the presses. I didn't want to leave too much time between updates.

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    I like the overall ratios a lot! The size and placing of the MKII AUTOMATIC looks just about perfect to me as do the size/weights of the indices. Slightly round the corners of the bezel triangle and I think the bezel would be close to perfect. The font of the 369 looks a tiny bit thin/light but just might be because the hands are missing. It could also be because the font of the bezel numbers is overpowering the 369 font. Great start!

    Re: Project 300: Dial design (thread reboot)

    That's a great start Bill.

    My only criticisms are that the dial should be bigger (the gap between the edge of the hour markers and the edge of the chapter ring should be minimal, and the minute markers right to the edge), and the lugs could probably be a little thinner.
