looks like we're entering the final design stage(s) for the 2014 Project Watch; several good ideas and suggestions have surfaced and some questions / options need be answered and discussed. Let's first summarize the things we already know or have decided on:
03 - Watch Style: GMT
08 - Case Shape: curved edge with square dial
09 - Movement: Dixmont-Guangzhou DG3804B with independent, adjustable GMT hand
10 - GMT Hand (not window or disc)
Answers to some of your questions and suggestions:
- depending on numbers, we plan to offer both a date and no-date version. For the latter, there will be an 'empty' crown position like the dual crown watch.
- date versions will have the date window at the 3 o'clock position.
- again, depending on numbers, we plan to offer at least 2 color options.
More things to discuss and decide:
- width of the watch
- size and shape of crown
- dial finish and color(s)
- solid- versus display-back (note: the movement is not decorated)
Just to get the creative juices flowing …… several have suggested to design a dial similar to the 2012 WUS Tourbillion:
Why not go all out and take inspiration of the red Celadon Premier from our good friend monsieurxu?
We like to recognize forum- and project-member Dutchman72 who helps us visualize all our suggestions and ideas; showing here one of his most recent versions that seems to be liked by many:
Hope this helps focus the discussion and concentrate on the issues and decisions at hand and the next polls we should have.

PS - you may have noticed by now that we have closed all other threads (except registration) in an effort to focus the discussion and to make it easier for new members / late-comers to figure out the status of this project.
