Ehmm, i am not so keen with Space themed.
Ehmm, i am not so keen with Space themed.
As for the mission patch, was does that latin phrase mean, "we missed it by that much"?
Just out of curiosity, those of you who voiced a disinterest in a themed watch, would one that was tastefully executed bother you? I guess what I'm asking is if the project embraces a theme, and providing it wasn't done in a garish manner, would it stop you from buying a WUSSE?
Before you get carried away, can I just say that any tribute of that kind will probably put quite a few people off - some will find the idea of any space theme not very interesting (a few have raised that already), others (and I will be one of those) may like the space idea as such but really would leave the job of creating a tribute i.e. to Apollo 13 to NASA. Quite frankly - I would find it quite presumptuous to dedicate this watch to any astronaut alive or dead.
To reiterate Cybertrancers point - I think we should look more for something like the idea of exploration, to go beyond a frontier or into the unknown in the context of space.
And then let someone with superior design skills translate that into a timeless piece of watchmaking
I'm actually not committed to anything; I think this is more of a spitballing session and a chance to throw some ideas around. Theme, or no theme, it doesn't really matter to me. However, I did raise the idea in case there is a consensus here that a theme should be pursued. If that were the case then we would need to think a little about it before we enter the dial design phase.
More on the nature theme . . . what about having the 12,3,6,9 positions representative one of the 4 elements (earth, wind, fire, water). They can be represented by different colors -brown, clear, red, blue for example. Perhaps the earth engraved on the back. Additonally, Utilize some rough finished metal for the face and incorporate either a tritium or light source similar to the Luminox tube design -encased in a bezel around the perimeter of the watch.
I am thinking -since this a new, modern case design -why not incorporate some of the latest technology/ manufacturing processes to make something that is truly unique. Although, some technologies might be expensive -we might be surprised to find that the costs are not necessarily prohibitive in this instance.
What about a translucent face that allows you to see into the watch but is still opaque to incorporate a design on the face?

And yes, you are right, soviets have forced german army out of my country only for the reason to stay here for half the century and destroy culture, confidence and resources of one small nation.
And I believe, that if it was not for Munchen betrayal from french and british government, Germans would have had probably very hard time defeating czech army, that was superior at the time of invasion and we had most advanced border fortresses, much much better, than Maginot line in France.
Now I am discussing it.
Back to the watch theme: I think we do not necessarily need any theme. It would be nice to have one, but if it means loosing people from this project, then lets not have it. On the other hand, if we choose solid case back, it would be nice to have something engraved there and thats the best spot for theme...
I for example was not a big fan of pilot watches. But eventually this theme grew on me and I later bought LGE and now I love it! So when someone does not like the space theme now, he could like it later...
So please everyone think about it and give us your ideas. The more ideas the better!
