    14. The Search for GMT Dial Candidates

    Time for a little homework boys and girls! It has always been the Design Committee's responsibility to pick and choose candidates for each vote thread. So we would like to give YOU the opportunity to choose your favourite dial design to go head to head with others in the dial vote thread.

    1) We are looking for five to six designs and would like designers to submit one or two designs to me via PM (Dutchman72, Rdenney and others).

    2) Two or three designs will be chosen by registered members from these two threads 06. Case size and other issues (starting from the middle) and 11. 2014 Forum Project Watch - Design Thread. Please only choose one design per member (you can post the same design in different colours) and post it below. The two to three designs with the most likes will go through to the next dial vote round.

    The Design Committee will choose the rest if there are any places left.

    Make hay while the sun shines :):)

    Ed, will you post the candidates at the top of this thread? The idea of going back through the 114 pages in those two threads doesn't appeal greatly to me...

    Since no-one has decided to hand in their homework, there will be a lot of detention slips going out today. And no, "My dog ate my homework" is not an original or acceptable excuse :):)

    Thankfully, our designers did their part and forwarded their favourite designs to us for the final vote. If there are no further entries then these will be the final candidates in the next round of voting.

    I prefered some elements of incarnation of Rick's design, but if he's not putting it forward then I don't know if I may?

    (not least the font of the date window, which I would happily see used for all the numerals)

    Sorry couldn't find the grey version, if there was one

    what about this? We have a very clear time display and also 24hr marker on the outside. I mean we can use this concept for the 24 hr marker. This design is very straight forward with all time telling info. Unlike the rendered designs, hour markers are not displayed.

    Nomos design is good too where the 24 hr markers can be printer in the centre of the dial whereas the hr markers on the outside.

    Actually, I did put it forward as an example of not cutting off the corner if the texture. I understood that color changes would be a separate choice, along with the selection of hands and fonts. The other difference is the square shape of the minor markers.

    I feel that cutting the corners squares off makes it more cluttered. I much prefer the intact 11 x 11 square as it can't be divided into anything else. The eye appreciates things like that.

    I think I might prefer these hour markers as well. Not sure.

    I prefer the one with the corners missing. Seems to follow the shape of the case better.
