    Between the favorable changes you've made, and hopefully coming up as true to rendering form as you can in the institution on your chosen color combinations, I'm sure hoping the potential for possible "big moves" involve "soon to be" production of your very worthy concepts, on both models. This concept needs to now find, true life. My only other hope is that it can stay in an reasonably affordable price range .

    Thanks for commenting; I certainly want to get a truly distinct look that is recognizable. I was not referencing the Benrus and its homages, but I was wondering if anyone would compare it to the Benrus' unique asymmetric case with shrouded crown. I'm hoping it is a favorable point! It gives an unmistakeable silhouette from the face, and I have obsessively redesigned the profile of the guards so that the edges form the angle of an even hexagon (60°) while continuing the leading line from the tip of the lugs.
    With the taper towards the now relatively large crown, I am expecting the crown to be easy to grip despite being (I think) fully protected.

    Thank you very much for the encouragement! I'm attempting to secure the means to go to prototyping and while I have doubts, thoughts like these tell me to keep going. I'm likely to have both concepts developed simultaneously, both fulfilling different roles.

    While I don't imagine that Latitude will end up dramatically different from the renders, Atlantica's design may prove to be more challenging to realize exactly as seen here, given the unprecedented target thickness. I also do not have its material choices down (particularly whether to go for a ceramic bezel scale or the conceptualized sapphire).
    Additionally, while I am quite clear on how I expect to be able to produce the intended colors, but as I want to bring out Atlantica's dial in its lead colorway by using a vantablack-like finish, that obviously depends on whether that's available.
    As for your other hope... yes! Me too!


    For fun, I did a half-and-half cut image of the earlier iterations of Atlantica and the current. It's changed, yet it's always been Atlantica!

    Hmm. I'm expecting this would be produced by molding, then finished appropriately with the white-glow lume filled in the recesses. It's more of an experiment to subtly put the emblem in.
    I'm most likely to stick with the previous iteration of the crown, which has an anodized textured recess with a lume-filled engraving of the insignia.

    Can you elaborate a bit more about how the color scheme would relate?

    I really prefer the first one - the Latitude. Nice clean design and would make such an excellent SUmmer watch with that dial.

    My bad! I took your crown choices completely out of context! That said, I'm still a fan primarily of #3, with #1 being a close second.

    Do you think it's better to have the lume as an outline like these examples, or the symbol in the lume as with previous variants?

    Another idea I'm considering is to use a monocoque case. Does anyone have an opinion on that?
