    Dumb question.....do the font styles have to differ all that much from the Kingston or Nassau? I understand the need for maybe a bolder / thicker font.....but why the change in style?
    My guess is that Bill is looking for a font that will look good and work with the roulette date wheel font....

    I was looking at it and comparing to the Kingston I happen to have on my wrist today.. I think I like the Ultima Pro.

    Ultima Pro - Webfont & Desktop font « MyFonts

    Hi Bill i'm a designer and would love to collaborate on the font.
    Making something from scratch wouldn't be too difficult.
    I'd do it for good karma too

    I like the curvy, but i was really hoping for the open 6s and 9s on the date wheel.

    Is Bill going to go with the same font everywhere on the watch?

    Yes, I loved the font that was shown a while back with the open 6's and 9's on the date wheel. I do not think Bill went with that font on the date wheel though.

    Open 9:



    BTW: I love that bezel font but do not think it would look as good in aluminum.

    LOVE that date wheel!
    I'm fine with the bezel font, but I'm still holding out hope for something other than aluminum.
    Please, please, please give us a larger triangle with more lume! Somewhere between that tiny classic one and the over-sized modern version.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    I stated before that I have a strong desire to see the font follow the original at least as closely as the Kingston followed the original.

    I really think that contributed to making the Kingston the legend it is. When stuff starts changing then bad things happen. The 1 and 6 on of the linked font aren't right but the remaining numerals look close. The 9 probably should be like the 6 also.

    I was the one originally talking up open date wheels...
