    I would go up to $400. I could flip a couple watches easily enough. Any higher, and I would have to do some serious thinking.

    I think if you can keep it under $500 (or 500 Euro) that would make it a no brainer for a lot of people. Especially with a 100m water resistance and a sapphire crystal, of course.

    Have you considered framed hands with lume filling instead of the cabin clock hands, which I assume were never designed to carry lume? I.e. IWC hands vs. Sinn 856 hands. Cabin clock hands on watches are a pet peeve of mine. If the hands are solid, you can't apply as thick a layer of lume, which means these types of hands usually end up with mediocre lume.

    I know this might be late in the game, but when I saw the airfoil graphic for the crown my immediate thought was there should be 3 more added to it to make it a prop.

    Instantly recognizable for what it is, and more importantly, symmetrical so it doesn't matter where the crown is turned to.

    Just my 2¢.

    Nicely done.

    Might have to be simplified for engraving on the crown, and with no color on the tips.
