It would also be handy for timing breaks when teaching classes. It is a deal breaker for me to only have a bezel marked at five-minute increments.
    Thank you Russ, it's always valuable to hear how people are using features in real-world scenarios - I had never even considered the potential for medical applications!
    I'll take that under advisement!

    How big is the watch?
    Thank you!
    The 10 o'clock crown placement is proving to be a little polarising - definitely a good talking point.

    The watch is 42mm at the widest point (at the wrist), but the case tapers up to 39.5mm at the bezel, so it wears a little smaller (more like a 40/41) without losing presence.
    Lug width is 20mm, and the lug to lug is 46mm (which in conjunction with the case taper also helps with wearability on smaller wrists).

    The case is looking pretty thick, the straight and thin lug profile from the top view really doesn't match the vase-case. Most of the time you only see lugs like this on "minimalist luxury" 'fashion' watches, rather than a diver.
    How thick is it actually? It's looking like it's in the 13-16mm thick range.

    The case is too thick, probably because the movement is too thick. See if using the thinner Miyota 9015 movement allows thinning of the case. And the 9015 is a much smoother movement than the NH35.

    The minute hand and second hands are too short, they should reach the indices.

    The lugs are too plain and weak looking, both visually and for robustness, this is a tool watch afterall, they need some graceful integration into the case.

    And the lugs should be drilled, for ease of strap changes on the dive boat.

    Good luck

    It's definitely not a dress watch ;)
    It measures 13.13mm thick from the caseback to the top of the bezel; or 15.00mm total including the domed sapphire.
    I'll share a couple of update pictures now that prototypes have arrived, to show the lug design.

    Thanks for the feedback!
    I agree, the hands were too short in some of the renders; you'll be glad to know we fixed that throughout the rest of the process!
    Re: lugs - they are definitely drilled.
    I'll post some updated prototype shots to illustrate.

    Here is the 'Reef Blue' variant - proving to be a crowd favourite! :)

    Re: Feedback on diver design

    It still looks unusually thick in real life, but the prototype is a lot better looking than the render. The tapering design actually makes it look even thicker. I have a 42mm supercompressor-style watch that is 14mm thick at its peak, and the crystal doesn't account for much of that. It looks thinner than what you've got there. The lug design doesn't contribute, and I think I want to point out now that the way the highest point of the lugs is leaving some blank surface between the lugs and the bezel, that annoys me.
    I am going for super-thin for my own designs so I do suppose your priority isn't thinness, so I won't necessarily say the thickness is a problem.

    The Reef Blue color has a nice balance of color and conservatism, but the fashion watch style lug design really still looks out of place.
