    I know that a round date window is required, so will try to work on that. Here is my design (work in progress). Also I will try to add the UFO style "Jenny" case in a 3D modeling software.

    VERY COOL !!!

    I really like the hands, and the color. Also, I think a sweep RED second hand, instead of the small dial would be more cost effective and appealing to those insisting on RETRO style. Try using small arrows for hour markers 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11. So extend the triangles toward the center w/ rectangular base making the triangles into arrow heads, and increase slightly the size of the arrow heads.

    I look forward to seeing the rendering in UFO / Saucer / Jenny case ...

    Just a dial update. Do you want the arrowhead style markers for all the numbers or just the 1,2,4,5,7,8,10 and 11 hour markers? Still working on the 3D UFO case.

    Re: Wanted: Watch designer

    Looking very cool... here's my suggestions.

    add arrow head markers in between 12 3 6 9
    Add triangle pip at 12 on the bezel
    cut the tips off the points on the bezel, for more of a "sprocket" style.
    increase size of Crown
    second hand use a round lume filled circle instead of arrow-head
    change stencil font to something more traditional

    If you can make the above changes, I think it will be ready for release to the Dive Watch Forum for further discussion.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Is the date window fine or would you prefer the round one?
