    I definitely hope you consider other color options :). IMPO, if you're going to call it a "Marlin" it should have some vibrant color options like an orange dial and a cyan/turquoise dial. Perhaps other bright colors too. The standard black/white/dark blue doesn't make me think of the ocean or a beautiful marine animal like a Marlin

    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    Im sorry, but regarding color I have a different opinion.

    From my experience, which I built up during the last 5 years, is telling me that 70% of the sales are for black/white/black carbon dials. I have had for the H2O KALMAR 1 many colored dials, yellow + 2x different orange dials, but these colors are not selling at all. At the end the decission will be made between wanting something special and possibility to sell later fast. With a black dial you will most probably sell much easier and thats why 70% of my customer are going for the secure option.
    As every single dial will have a certain minimum order quantity (MOQ) it makes from business point of view unfortunately no sense to go into the colored direction. But of course I will add a navy blue dial as this color is selling well too with SS cases.

    The only possibility is to create a black dial with orange accent and this is already in preparation.

    I guess the black/orange is a good compromise. Still, I think the name of a watch should be reflected in the design too. Maybe it is just me but the only thing I see that evokes thoughts of a Marlin are the sleek curves. I have enough black/white/dark blue watches so I guess I just want something more unique and something that really evokes a feeling of the ocean and of the namesake of the watch.

    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    I well understand your arguments, but please have a look at the KALMAR 2 thread. There are close to zero yellow or orange KALMAR 2 shown even though the dials could be chosen by my customer in the visual configurator. Besides my best customer there are just a few out in the wild. Maybe you will like our compromise.
