    Short seconds. Looks much cleaner and allows the dial indices to own the space as they should.

    I concur. We did go over this 2 months ago in Danny T's "marlin spotted" thread. I too liked the long hash marks, but it seemed to get shot down. I think you secretly like the idea of the long hash marks because your wife has good design savvy

    Here's from 2 months back:

    I will quote myself from the other thread that piggybacked on "mechanicals" same comment

It's boring to me and frankly does the opposite regarding overall symmetry to the whole watch.

    I can see how the markers can become contentious amongst the different mind sets. I know what I like, so I will follow along on this and see where it goes. My interest is in the fact this one will fit me nicely. Now if it just maintains the bold design that really is very unique in the industry right now and separates H2O from the masses.

    I still feel the same today. The long hash marks correspond with the overall modern design of the H2O watch. Go the other way, and you're back pedaling in design to match the rest. but I still love the watch whatever comes out of the discussion.

    Please let's not go over the color of date wheels again. That was settled

    You and I are in the same wavelength regarding the white dial and its 3-D effect.

    Is there any chance of an all blue bezel ? I think it would look great paired with the blue dial, and also maybe with the black or white dial. If so I would probably go blue dial with blue bezel.

    Again appreciate Clemens willingness to patiently hear questions and ideas.

    I certainly prefer the shorter seconds for the clean look. That said, if long seconds were in the final design, I'd still buy one. It isn't a big deal for me personally.

    100% same opinion, i can live with both decisions.
    If we look long enough we will certainly find a brand which also used short second markers before - this should not be a criteria.

    I still think you need to move the seconds hand lume pip inward.

    I totally agree with that. The arrow should be moved back down the dial a bit so the tip just meets the markers on the dial
