    I agree. C3 has a green tint to me, in daylight. Plus, I think that either the blue of BWG9 or the white of C1 will look very sharp on what is an aviator's watch. It would have more of an airplane gauge look, to me.

    and that panerai coffee colour is what kind of luminova, exactly? is it their own proprietary thing or something that can be purchased from a third party?

    Panerai is proprietary. Their history is steeped in great but proprietary lume. The names of the models initially referred to the trademarked lume that was used. (Luminor & Radiomir)

    Their watches glow like the sun...

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    the Project GMT cases will be going into mass production later this month. I signed off on the samples earlier this week. We will move the dial and insert design next.

    For the hands I am going to take Menno's cue and work on the proportions that he mentioned. I believe that its just the minute hand that needs adjustment.

    For the lume I would suggest as noted earlier as well:

    * White dial: Natural or C3 lume
    * Black dial: BGW9

    Aarrgghhhh!!!! I just spent an hour going through the entire thread and my rather lengthy reply was lost...well, probably better for everyone involved as it might've been a bit long winded. The gist is that in earlier pictures it was noted that the GMT hand was longer than presently seen on gmt style watches with a smaller triangle. I am hoping that this detail is something that is being considered.

    Also, great news about the cases going to production. Thank you for keeping us in the know.

    I noticed that too (and also lost a long winded reply post). The smaller 24h hand at the chapter ring seemed more in concert with the hour makers. I'd have to go back but I think the triangle fits right between the hour marker and chapter ring.

    All the hands and markers on my Kingston are superbly in balance, I hope we see the same here.....

    Could someone please post a dial pic with the natural luminova? From the catalogue luminova look i cannot make out if its greenish as the c3 or yellowish or ..?

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    I think that Bill refers to my question in posting #90 of this thread: I asked if it was possible to align the 'ball' at the end of the second hand with the 'cross' of the mercedes hand: making sure that the ball of the second hand is in the exact center of the mercedes 'ball' when it's on top of that hand. I suggested to make the second hand a tad longer.

    Rolex hands are aligned very precisely, the Kingston's hands do not align the way I suggested in posting #90.

    Huh, you're right. It's a little off but you can't tell from this pic I just snapped. Off by the same amount on my SeaDweller too.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    Have we settled on the tiny 24-hour hand? I'd really like to see something between the over-sized 24-hour triangle on a modern GMT and the tiny one on the classic model.
