    I'm new to the game here - hi everyone. I like the B dial as well.

    Excellent suggestion Menno....good attention to detail!

    by that...should the meatball be bisected in half as it covers the date frame?

    I'd like the GMT triangle to be a bit larger than the vintage version (which I find to be extremely small), but not nearly as big as the contemporary triangle... Maybe 25% of the difference between the small and the large, if that makes sense.

    I do not always agree with you, but most often I do, but you always have good ideas.

    I agree 100% Arthur! Vintage all the way. B dial with small triangle.

    Like this idea. I like the small details that are signs of craftsmanship, but very subtle at the same time.

    I agree with you; the original GMT Master is a classic by all rights. I still think that triangle is super small though. I'm all for making it a bit bigger...I mean, look at the lume dot on Watchamacallit's pic above...that would look like a grain of sand.

    Just my very humble opinion.

    I agree the lume dot in this example is small. I have seen several others that have more lume on the same size arrow, makes a big difference. Another thing that happens, and I have seen this in old lume shots, the GMT hand is so close to the rehault that the lume reflects off and what you see are two lume dots, right next to each other.

    Interesting. Yeah i didnt think about the reflection of the GMT lume in the chamfered edge of the crystal.

    I'm all about the small GMT triangle, just don't want to have to squint to see it. (But I would definitely prefer having to squint over having the huge, modern, clown [I jest] triangle)
