    Sounds like a good idea to me too! Thanks for the suggestion -

    Rather B than A, but preferably like this:

    B. No doubt! I love the fact that the hands are a little slimmer than the Kingston's. And I must say that Lambert's picture of the postion of the dial and hands of the GMT are very helpful imaging a perfect watch!

    I also prefer B for its balanced look, as well as being more similar to the original. This dial, along with having the slightly thinner hands will differentiate it from the Kingston, sufficiently. The GMT hand can extend beyond the minute track, as it points to the hour number on the bezel.

    Does this illustration imply that there will be a black dial version with gilt hands and indices? At some point it would be good to see mockups of black and white dials with silver hands and indices, as well.

    So could the hour markers be even smaller in B dial as in picture above?

    Version B looks better to me.

    Definitely in favor of "B" with the indices closer to the center. Version "A" looks to "maxi dialish" for my taste.
