    A black-black type are you? I do like the all-dark look myself, I think it goes well with the design.
    I'm also considering red and green schemes and renaming 'Seafarer' to 'Have-Blue'. Feel free to suggest a certain color combination, though I've mainly gone with cold, grayscale and sea-like colors to fit with the theme of the watch.

    By this, do you mean Latitude (the classic-style watch with white dial and blue rehaut) or the original Atlantica (the black dial with blue ring watch), or the first from the left in the color palette above? (Nero-Noire Atlantica)

    Are you referring to Latitude?


    Speaking of Latitude, I tried a rendering of it in a open environment.



    But I've also since then made some updates to it - the logo is now a flat applique and has been repositioned. The bezel has been changed and the finishes of the rendering have been changed to their original intent.
    And I have a full set of colorways, including a revised black and special edition.

    I find it surprising how much the personality of the design seems to change by coloring the bezel top surface black.



    As for Atlantica, I also have another rendering of it - a close up in the Have Blue variant.

    Another side-by-side but in rendering...

    Returning to this comment; I've gotten around to making a maxi-dial version of Atlantica that is the same size and position all around as a date-window and drops the 24 hour numerals. Due to the location of the date, it cramps the dial a bit more, whereas if the size had been increased to this point without moving the indices inwards it might look less so. I feel the smaller indices have a certain elegance that large ones don't, however.

    I personally don't like it, but it still looks serviceable.


    Among other things I've been refining, is the crown size - I personally thought it looked a bit small, and feedback I received agreed with that. Here's a comparison of the new crown size.


    Made prior to that, though, this is the new main render;


    And a full palette!

    The Have-Blue dial is likely to be adjusted to a more typical darker blue.

    Re: Two Designs... Which should I try to work on?

    Your concepts and renders are nice! Which software are you using btw?

    I really like the Latitude concept! For the Atlantica, I'd probably skip the textured dial (looks like it is like a subtle cross hatch pattern in one of the renders) and just do a flat matte dial. For crown sizes I personally like 6.5 mm diameter crowns (or anything close to that +/- 0.5 mm). It's an eye-catching design! My favorite color is the black nero-noire.
