    Just a thought, what about no date and longer indicies at 3-6-9 or 12-3-6-9? I like it in general though, well done!

    12-3-6-9 already have longer indices, but they're only subtly so.

    Really dig the changes. I'lle be watching this one progress :)

    My $0.02 - remove LUNA ONE on dial. Just put it on the caseback. Cleaner look that way. Also, I'd stay away from the STP movements until they sort out their reliability issues or you're gonna be looking at a lot of after sales warranty work. Go with ETA, Seiko or Miyota (maybe even Sellita).

    Thanks a lot for your feedback, really appreciate you taking the time to comment! I'm keen to leave the model name on the dial as I think it'd be a bit too empty without. Additionally, with the STP, from other brand owners I've spoken with, they've all have good things to say about the movement. In comparison to Sellita and ETA, rejections/faults have not been notably higher, but they seem to be more publicised and talked about due to STP being relatively new on the market.

    In other news we have completed the final design of the bracelet and we're now on to the engineer drawings. From there we can get the 3D model and 3D renders produced from the drawings. Really excited to see this coming to life. The whole project/journey started in July/August 2017 so it's nice to see things starting to come to fruition.

    Thanks for everybody's feedback and help so far :)

    Simple yet intriguing design. I like it man, id prefer it with the date as it gives it just a tad more detail to the dial.

    You'll be glad to know the date has been included. It's a feature I personally refer to frequently on my watches so I decided it had to be there. The final design is above - what do you think?

    Hi all, I thought I'd show an update of how we're getting on. Building 3D renders now, this is where we're at so far. Enjoy!

    I agree on removing Luna one from the dial

Having a dark area surrounded by light area makes the dial feel like it's only the center in terms of visual weight. Pulling the indices into the middle and making sure the hands don't go past that visual barrier make it even more obvious. Combined with a 40mm diver which (for me) is just too small for a diver/watch with bezel and a dial that makes it feel small, it seems like it's going to "wear" even smaller.
    I like the design for the exact opposite reason. However, i'm a FASHION enthusiast, not just a watch enthusiast. I'm trying to merge the mindset with my design plans.
