    Exactly!

    Mr. Yao can you please show us some high resolution shots of that piece. I would love to see how that white Kingston looks up close and in perfect lighting.

    This color will look great if Bill decides to offer us a white dial/gilt lines version: the cwc will stand out on the white dial - especially with gilt contour lines.

    Interesting. Mine is about 4.5 years old but still looks same as when I bought it. Pic taken just a few weeks ago...

    Oops sorry I see the card on the next page. Yeah Bill I think the "Natural" example is similar to the "winter white" I mentioned, which is "cream" to some. Just please God not the orange hell or orange dunkel that some mistake for "vintage lume" (hope I'm not offending anyone).

    Those worried about an off-white on pure white dial, don't forget there will be some outline, and as pictured the lume does contrast some. The look in my book is quite classy; and the white dial variant was originally a prestige version for execs IIRC.


    Anyone familiar with Clint Eastwood's signature "root beer" GMT? I wonder if that's what is being asked for. I think Jake's Rolex World has an article on it.....

    I'm with you on this - C3 for the white dial and C1 if there is a black dial option.

    I personally don't care about the white dial, but no C3 for black please. That's not my idea of patina. My eye just registers green.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    If I'm being perfectly honest, I have grown away from the "pre-mature patina look" recently. I have one watch (Steinhart OVM) that has it (Superluminova "radium") and even though it looks cool and the lume is very strong, after having owned the Nassau for a few months now I can say that BGW9 has really grown on me in being my favorite Superluminova. I have come to the realization that I prefer the newer looks of bright white lume and would rather have it (possibly) age naturally as the watch ages. Just my $0.02.

    Bear in mind, C3 is the color of the lume, not necessarily what color the lumed items are in daylight. So I'm told....

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    I also love C3 and have 3 watches with it. I also like the aged look of Superluminova "old radium." But after having that on my Steinhart OVM, I don't think I would want it on something like the Project GMT. I have fallen in love with the new look of my Nassau with its BGW9 lume. However, I do think that C3 would work perfectly fine with a white or black dial in my opinion.

    I think you're correct:

    Here's a pic of my Pleamar and below a pic of the Pleamar's lumen (found on the internet)
