    Actually I think your lug design is very neat. It reminds me of my Eterna watch, this model:

    I would prefer a smaller case since I find that square shaped watches wears pretty big.

    I look forward to see your dial design!

    I think the lug design looks good.

    I also made a slight, crude adjustment by drawing on your render with my phone stylus as an alternative option.

    I would love this with a 60/70's style chronograph design.

    Thanks goody2141, I have another case that have similar lug, but since my current design is not a chronograph, I might use that for future project.

    I have a new rendering that have fake wire lug, looks good in rendering, but maybe not good in real life, because the open lug will not have sharp edge like in the rendering. I have to change it to solid wire lug, or rework it completely. I also attach my draft of the dial, wellcome for comment or criticism.

    Do you mean post#15? What's wrong with that design? Is it the case, lugs or both?

    I am some more rendering of that case.

    A very classic and neat design. I cant make up my mind about the lugs in post #17. Look strange to me, but still they add a unique touch to the watch which I really like. What kind of crystal will you use, flat or domed?

    Thanks for the comment, I tried other shape but it will be very similar to other brands, this is a trial for the lugs design. Last week I printed the 3D model and tested on my wrist, I think I need to adjust the shape of the lugs.
    The crystal is curved sapphire crystal, movement is SW210-1, a manual wind watch.
