    I like the bezel with the turquoise (of course it is easy to change the color to match the Isofrane) and color matching bits on the dial and on the second hand




    Also, I kind of like it with a "turquoise" date wheel

    I wish for a glossy orange dial. But I'll settle for glossy white, and blue.
    Glossy orange? Hot!

    I dream to have a "Superblack" dial; where by just looking at the watch and see the handsets in 1/1000 second: my brain to subconsciously catch what time is it; and then my eyes to get lost into a cool dive illusion effect due to the strong deep dark dial... :)

    To summarize: I dream to have a dial painted with a thin layer of "Vantablack Superblack": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vantablack

    By the way, the white dial with full white bezel last picture of Clemens: is pure "Piece of Art"!!!

    For the second lines on the rehaut I have two nice solutions, but I´m not 100% which one I would prefer!

    Below you will find an animated gif which is showing all three seconds the two different versions for the seconds on the rehaut. What is your preferred version?

    I´m personally more the guy who wants it´s consistent and therefore my vote would be the seconds with one length only. My wife would go for the long seconds, but for which option would you go?

    I personally like the short second hand version. It looks cleaner, less busy IMHO.
    When you have kids, time races.
    It gives me pleasure to see time fly by on a nice watch.

    Definitely the short seconds. The long seconds make the dial too busy and take away from the minute indices.

    Also my personal preference would be the shorter version.

    Short seconds, definitely. So many gorgeous options. Going to be very tempted with a 44mm for me and a 40mm for my wife. Look forward to the final choices.

    Hard to say.
    The short version is more symetric in my eyes, nevertheless the longer version brings more the 3d effect to the dial.
    Due to the fact that the Mokume Gane has the long stripes in the navy blue dial...i prefer the short ones in this watch.

    Clemens, can you perhaps make a rendering how it looks in the white shield dial? I am not sure if it looks as good as in the black one.

    Short version is more consistent and not overcrowding as SteamJ.

    Clemens, will you be making this deal of the year like CH8? :)
