    My own watch design: Mil One

    I've played around a bit with Adobe Illustrator, trying to design my own watch. I've made it just for fun when I've had some time over. What do you guys think?

    Kewl! two thumbs up

    The plongeur minute hand would look astounding in orange too.

    I can't think of much that I don't like on it, but if I had to make a suggestion, I would say maybe change just the tip of the seconds hand to red, make it stand out a little more.

    IMO the whole design is quite harmonious, very good looking watch, the dial, the crown, the lugs, the hands, but maybe the bezel needs more friction surface, it would be a little slippy when using gloves, specially from 0' to 20'. But maybe it's just me, I'm such a bezel friction zealot. LOL



    Cheers

    great pic DR Dreadlocks!
    Yeah, maybe it does need a coin edge bezel or something, to make the bezel easier to turn. I also would like to add a 24 hr time scale on the dial to make it more military looking, but maybe the dial will be to busy.
