I do thank SMSgt Bo for taking this on. I think what is likely to happen is that everyone would want something a little bit different. Hopefully, people will all be willing to compromise so that we can get the project off the ground.
For example, I do agree with Janne that I would prefer the U2 style face and hands with the crown moved to the 10pm position, however, if that is not the consensus or it that puts the cost out of the reach of too many, I am more than willing to live with U1 hands and the standard 4pm position.
For me the only reason for making it look a bit more exotic than a base U1 is that I already have one of those, however, I really like the idea of an all lumed dial Sinn
