    I voted black but that any blue used should be medium blue so it'll pop against black areas of the watch like the SDR bezel.

    No, more like...THIS!

    Well, maybe a little more vibrant than that shade.

    I vote this (when it becomes an option) - or perhaps a slightly more burnt orange than this, but you get the idea.

    I voted blue but partially because I didn't read all the polls first so I didn't realize that there was a seperate poll for the second hand. I would be OK with blue or black and would actually probably prefer black for the hour and minutes hand.
    Very few tasks cannot be accomplished with orders that end in the words "... or die trying."

    I agree, orange should be an option. So should white. The current choices of blue, black and red are almost exclusive on the predication that we use a white dial. Those who choose a blue dial are very limited by these three as blue/blue is silly, blue/black not a great combo and blue/red too star spangled banner.

    Actually to be honest I think since hand color is so dependent on dial color IMHO it may be wise to drop this poll altogether until a dial is chosen first and then afterward choose hands based on this chosen dial.

    Otherwise you may have some folks who voted for dial A and others who voted for dial B both voting for hand color A because it equally matches both dials A and B nicely...but in the end dial C may be chosen which looks awful with hand color A.

    yeah...I know that sounds like a math problem...sorry

    Totally agree. Maybe just combine the color of the hands/color of the dial/color of the indices polls into one since they are so interdependent.
