    The order of the losers is Navy, Cream, Champagne, Sage, Ice, Jade, Oxblood, Emerald, Copper, Silver, Ruby, Orange, and Teal at very last.
    My personal choice was Jade, but I did not include my vote nor would it have changed the results much.
    With the dial color out of the way, the centerpiece of the watch, we now have a number of other areas to look at including the bezel and, as requested, the case color.
    I made the realization today this color almost perfectly matches the Apple Safari logo, which as much as I loathe the company, I thought swapping the blue on the compass hand for white will be a good option, as well as also likely to match the inscription and other dial markings. The hands and index designs themselves are still to be determined, remember.



    Without the darker navy dial I am unsure if a bronze look is still worth pursuing but I wanted to throw out a few renders (as best as I can draw) of brushed steel, polished steel, bronze, and last a bright rose gold. I skipped gaudy full yellow gold for everyone's sanity.

    Let's assume that the bronze would look close to this PVD watch here:


    Of course this is all completely aside from bezel options...

    I'm not sure how much benefit there would be to a deeper engraving/stamping, if that is what you mean. It would require more tooling to be designed, certainly.

    I would hope Superluminova but most of Meranom's offerings are unspecified lume so I will need to see. As for the display back, the K-34 design does not have a large display window, so the visible space on the rotor would be small, although seeing the mountain peaking up could be cool.

    Okay, that was just thinking out loud.
    I would personally prefer mountain om the caseback than display caseback. Tbh there si not too much to see inside.

    So now we got an analog Apple Watch..., I hope there will be no copyright claims from that company of Cupertino.
    I bet no one realized that when choosing this color.

    Altough I'm a long time Apple user, this is a bit of dissapointing to me, so choose wise with bezel and case color

    The choice of the light blue Azure dial colour makes a bronze case colour redundant in my opinion,as only a darker blue or richer colour like oxblood would have worked with the darker case.
    So I guess with the azure colour choice we are going to with a frigid arctic snow and ice theme........blue, white and silver.
    The only concern I have with the an azure dial is that silver indices and hands might be hard to distinguish at a glance.
    Bezel colour also,while having to compliment the azure must also be easily distinguished.

    I believe you can just about get away with the azure bronze combo if the bezel colour/hands /indices etc are correct. Bottom right is getting close with that bezel, though nowhere near as good as with the Navy dial...

    But this is quite nice too... and I prefer this silver case to bronze with an azure dial. I like the bezel combo too...

    I like this proposal.
    I share this opinion: with azure I would opt for cold tones and therefore a raw steel case (no PVD).
    It suits the theme better in my opinion

    I am about to run away and seek therapy! Due to comparison between the watch and the Apple Safari logo. Yikes!

    NB I use a MacBook Pro at work but use Chrome instead of Safari and G Suite, I try not to see the Apple logo on the lid...
