    A "black" Italian diver.

    A drawing I prepared for a standard diver case (DLC or ceramic...we'll see).
    Named it "Ghost Diver" playing with the name of the Marvel's Hero called Ghost Rider.
    Comments are welcome.

    Thanks Peter.
    Depends on the availability: an ETA 2897 should be fine.
    Power reserve indicator is not an aesthetic solution only: is for those divers used to wear their watches in rotation and that require to know if the watch they are going to wear on that day can grant to work ... (there's a lot of those guys around!!!)
    Ciao.

    I really like the dial. Adding some lame to the bezel would be cool.

    Black is the new black it seems... I like it, but there are 2 details that kills me:
    1. The hour hand is too short and fat, I'd extend it to the long hour marks and then check the width for visual balance
    2. Date font and orientation create a disturbing contrast with the overall radial dial, expecially with the nearby 20 (fanno a pugni). The actual placement of the date window will require a custom date ring, so why not use the same font and radial orientation, or break with the dial and make it vertical?
