    Re: Just an idea ...

    Do you mean Minesweeper or do you target the rescue teams in sub terrain emergencies ( from my side this would call for a whole watch design as the dial is just a "nose" in the missing face so it stands in no relationship) but for me it would be ok ( I " won" a new sprinter project at the job mid of last week and meanwhilie I have some doubts regarding myself that I can invest too much time! ( It is 19:30 and I've just arrived home) (why does duty always call the wrong men at the wrong time!!)

    Re: Just an idea ...

    you are right, meaning it's always better to see the whole face then just a nose, but we are to start with something, aren't we.
    and no, not Minesweeper : ) neither as a PC game nor as a military naval vessel

    So you miner rescue team would be pretty close to the requirements of firemen!

    A hour/min/sec/beat watch. Not for specific use (firemen,rescue, etc), just to see the beats of the mechanical movement using a indicator in the dial. Not open heart or somethig.

    There have been several watches where a hand on the anchor staff " beats" the half amplitudes. But it is not necessarily a complication just another hole in the dial!

    Re: Just an idea ...

    A great start on some good ideas.

    A few questions to center our ideas:
    -What problems do folks want to solve?
    -What kind of watch would be fun to design?
    -What areas do WUS enthusiasts want to increase their knowledge of design in?

    I personally have a specific problem I want to solve in the GMT area and it would involve designing a new movement or module for an existing movement. It would require design in all areas, bezel, dial, case, movement, etc. I don't have experience in any of these areas so look at it as a awesome project for some serious learning.

    I suspect a lot of these other ideas already being floated in this thread would also result in a great learning experience.

    Anyway I am working on a rendering and movie of the general GMT and watch concept using rhino, VRAY, bongo. I am swamped with work for my day job so not sure exactly when it will be ready for public consumption... The rhino model is done and nearing completion on single frame VRAY renderings...

    I think in some second amplifier that could be used to indicate beats, according to the principle of the King Cobra's linear seconds indicator, for example. Apply the same principle (curve + indicator), not copy or tribute (internet images).

    Re: Just an idea ...

    Sounds a bit like a theme watch as e.g. Ulysse did with the Circus and the Figthing men..... but I think ( if i'd remember right) they did it linked with a sonnerie
