    Good news, i was shure you thought about it.

    This would be a cool extra if possible within the budget! Nice idea - fingers crossed!

    I love the chunky hands for the rehaut dial. That's definitely the way I'll go. The SHIELD dial is awesome and super unique. I'm patiently waiting for my Torpedo to see it in the real world.

    As for the date window, while I'm not a huge fan of the circular cut, I definitely want to see the date and I like the offset positioning

    The HEV, while certainly not necessary, is a nice extra feature to the piece, IMPO

    With regards to the bracelet screws, I like not only the ruggedness of the hex screws, but the practicality of them. I just got a Helson Shark Diver (42mm) and getting the screws out to size the bracelet without scratching anything was a royal PITA. I wish everyone would switch to hex screws so that's not an issue. I assume they'll come with two screwdrivers, correct?

    I really hope you can secure the skeleton rotor. That combined with the lume caseback will really put this watch over the top!

    BTW - have you given any consideration to moving the arrow on the second hand down a bit so the tip touches the markers or ends up in the middle of them? The positioning as it stands seems off a bit

    We will supply two screw driver as usual.

    The handset is also used on the H2O ORCA and could not be changed. New orders for the handset are already placed.

    I'm a big fan of BGW9 if thickly applied.
    Any chance Clemens of a prototype lume shot?

    Agree here, although I'm in FULL support of bgw9 here, light application suffers from significant legibility issues in the numbers on the bezel IMHO, if I have a lumed bezel, I would like the ability to read it.

    I'm in for at least blue and white.

    What I wouldn't give to have some green accents on a blue dial, like leaves against the blue sky, little shameless digression there.

    Enjoying the thread and discussion.

    Phenomenal work, Clemens.

    black - blue bezel with high glossy black or blue dial looks very awesome.

    just worrying about 22mm lug width of 40mm case and too much curved lug which could makes huge gap between rubber strap and case. hope you well go through it!
    still wondering expected pre-order dates and price range

    keep up the good work!
