Dial Layout – Final Phase
Having narrowed down the six sample dial layouts to only three, we now have the opportunity to fine tune our finalists so that they can be presented for a final dial layout vote.
This thread will work in a similar manner to the first dial layout thread. The floor will be open for discussion and ideas for improving each of the three layouts, and at the same time everyone is invited to present their preferred changes in a list. And as was previously done, we will tabulate all of the suggestions made in this thread to determine the five most popular changes for each layout.
Since it’s unrealistic to expect drawings to be prepared for every single set of proposed ideas, a quick vote will be conducted to determine which modifications will be implemented by Triton to create the fine-tuned version of each layout. Each final rendering will be accompanied a by photo-realistic mock up so that everyone will have a good idea of what the layout will look like with respect to the watch case.
What can be changed or modified? Please keep in mind that we are fine tuning at this point, not making drastic changes to the layout itself. Tweaking the main and defining components of the dial is acceptable, but not requesting that those components be completely changed (such as swapping the PR dial with one from another layout, for example). Similarly, proposed changes to the indices (length, thickness, shape, etc.) and shading/detailing of the sub-dials are also acceptable.
Keep in mind that some elements of the dial such as the typeface (font) used for the numerals and other text will be determined later on.
A summary of the goals for this thread:
1. Participants propose changes for each layout (or only the layouts they’re interested in).
2. All of the proposals are surveyed by the project administrators to determine the top five proposed changes for each layout.
3. The top five proposals (for each layout) are voted on to determine which will be implemented.
4. Triton prepares a final rendering and mock up for each layout.
5. The final dial layout vote is conducted.
And our three finalists:
