    The blued crown guard adds a flavor that compliments the hands. But as a whole, while I think you have used a variety of ideas that make for a very unique concept here, you have not succeeded on the execution.
    One major thing I would change is your 100% polishing of everything. The BoR-leather hybrid bracelet is also an idea that I see no advantages in, and the exposed half of the dial has a severe legibility problem.

    I'm assuming that the watch is fairly small due to the date wheel being at the edge of the 'dial' opening, but what you've done is place the thin indice markers on top of the date wheel as a result, and I personally find that it makes it just kinda neither minimalist or easy to read clearly. If this was not a half-open faced watch, you would actually have a minimalist dial, but the way the actual 'dial face' is half overlaid the visible movement top, in my opinion it has a cluttered sensation of "too much happening at once" despite having next to no dial 'markings' at all.
    I'm not sure how to explain it.

    Does your renderer support other styles of material? I honestly think the watch would look a lot less ostentatious as a whole as well if it had a satin or brushed finish in most of the parts, but I did notice that all your concept images have had pure polished finishes on everything.

    Hi,
    I'm afraid your crown guard would be too thin. What is the smallest thickness (near the crown) ?
    And how does it stay closed ?

    The danger with making a watch on Solidworks (or any other similar software) is that when you are working at 50 or 100 times magnification, what you see on the screen seems super big and strong.
    But the same thing on real scale will probably prove to be too small or too fragile.

    Just try to work at real-size zoom, and you'll see that ... well, you'll see nothing.
