    BOOM! Really dialed in on the design (pun intended). Looking great! No arrows is the winner, IMO.

    I'll take a Green in PVD..... Or blasted.... Or blue... Oh boy. I have a decision to make.

    Skitzo/Jeff,

    A few friends with interest in the project requested me for a comparison of vertical window vs side window. Hence I decided to create an A vs B photo (bit of rejigging done on paint). Also, put some thought into what the two bars besides the "minute" box were adding to the design and hence dropped it for the time being till I get prototypes in hand in favor of a "less is more approach". Honestly, I think both options could work. It is likely to be personal preference on which one is better.

    I think my preference would be "B". But i still really like "A".

    B is closer to your Air Speed Indicator gauge in you original post. But i'm sure there are probably gauges that "A" resembles as well.

    Re: SaStek- Time Speed Indicator- PrePrototype feedback

    SaStek, I find it interesting you chose to nix (for now, anyway) the two white bars next to the MINUTES designation as I too, did not see the point in them. You have a great design, overall, and yes, less is more in this case. The focus should be on the indicators themselves, as the simplifying of your design is doing, now. (I'd still like to see a traditional sweep second hand. )

    As to the minutes location, the 12H location is more intuitive as far as the eye looking for information at top-dead-center, plus, the aircraft gauge you showed a photo of had the secondary indicator in that location, too, so that validates the 12H location for your concept.

    Another idea I had from looking at your design would be for both the hours and minutes to read at T-D-C, a somewhat different concept from that of the air speed indicator, but one where the eye can see all the information at a glance, an hour display right above the minutes display using two spinning discs.

    Re: SaStek- Time Speed Indicator- PrePrototype feedback

    Did some thinking..
    TBH, my gut feel is to go with design A. Since day 1, sketches of the minute disc were always about simulating the vertical scrolling digits of an aircraft gauge, hence the reason for having a side window. You can see what I am implying here:

    Having an aviation case back design, it wouldnt be cohesive to the design to have the dial look completely "non instrumental". I think, once I have the complete renders done with the proper leather strap with the stitching thread colour matched etc. it would all come together.

    Design A makes sense now that I see a working example of your concept; I was going by that earlier photograph. Either way, your design concept is great, and fresh, for an aviation/pilot style watch.
