Here's a good picture of what I'm referring to.
Thanks for the update!
Hotel Clerk: Do you have seventeen dollars and a good watch?
Del: No I don't. I have uh... two dollars... and a Casio.

Ok. One foot in front of the other. I'd want the dial to look as close to the original or, more specifically - as different from the current Rollie GMT - as possible.

I love it!!! Key West, my Kingston is waiting patiently for your arrival.
On the configs. All the small details that may seem insignificant to the normal wearer (that does not apply to anyone here, haha) are what make the 6542 so amazing.
Small GMT hand
Roulette date wheel
Lume bezel (i know thats not happening)
No crown guard
Bezel teeth design
These are the things that really set these apart from what just about every other GMT made looks like in one way or another....and I LOVE IT!!!
From my research, it looks like the triangle extended past the minute ring, where the base of the triangle is almost level with the minute marks and the tip extends past the minute ring.
This isnt exactly right as you dont see the edge of the minute ring. Look at the Kingston. There is a space between the case opening and the minute ring. The tip of the triangle would float there. As its not pointing to anything on the dial but the bezel instead. Kinda clever really. Have the point leave the "live dial area" so that you dont confuse that hand with what is going on on the dial. Well, I might have just confused everyone with that. Haha, sorry

Bill, if you need any help with the design of the dial/hands, I already have a pretty good start.

I'm 100% in agreement with you. I already have a 16750, so adding another one to the stable that looks the same would not make much sense. I believe that following closely to the 6542 is in keeping with what this project started out to be. Small GMT hand, chapter ring, Black/gilt, White/Black, Roulette date wheel, no crown guards. I would love to see a pepsi insert made of Sapphire or Lexan with lume numbers, but I'm afraid that isn't going to be and option.There are lots of GMT's out there that look like the modern Rolex GMT, lets not make another one!
