    I come back to the interest of placing a time index on the inner bezel: we set the inner bezel on the solar time facing the hand 24h (without having to disturb the time of the watch) we point the hand of the compass on the sun and it's over. Simplissime! and in addition we have a GMT function ...

    Correct idea, if a bit imprecise.
    On my “makedo GMTs”, I set the bezel main index (South or 12 of no calendar, have to make it N or 24 if calendar) facing the time at which the sun will reach zenith on the main dial, if it had a 24h graduation.
    Example 1, my summer time:
    I live in France but almost under Greenwich, and our legal summer time is UTC+2. Here locally the sun will be up at about 2:14 pm (1414 in military parlance). I set the S on my Vostok “GMT”, the 24 on my Orient “GMT” not facing just after the 2 o’ index, but the 1.
    Easier with my 24h Vostok (no date...), where I set the triangle index above the 2 and quarter marking (same +30-odd° offset as 1 on a 12h dial).

    2 — winter.
    The sun will reach peak at 1 and some pm. I set the GMTs main index in-between 12 and 1. The 24h watch is set at the tick mark for 1am (0100).

    You see that having 1-24 markings on the outer bezel is not much help, and may even be confusing to newbies.
    Now, I do 100% agree that having the outer scale is useful for a GMT function.

    Btw, I use the wonderful app. Solar Seeker (iOS) to learn the time of sunrise, sunset, noon for any place in the world and any time in the year. It also doubles as a very detailed solar compass, the next best thing after a British military Desert Rats navigation dial, with no water but no bloody batteries, no GPS nor — OMG! — Glonass.

    excuse awkwardness (it would be necessary to turn the indexes and I do not know how to do it ..., I'm not an expert) but at least we could have a scale of this type :

    I see at least a couple people mention the cream bezel. I decided to exclude it as an option in the current poll because it didn't feel right to me visually, but maybe I misjudged it. Many people have been voting for the pure white, so I feel it necessary to revisit this. What do you think?

    It would probably still not have featured in my selection, however I find it preferable to pure white.

    I still prefer white over cream as an off white just makes the dial look aged and removes the frosty crisp vibe.
    If the consensus was for an off white,I think champagne sunburst would be preferred over flat cream....just my two roubles worth

    I voted for white as a second choice but would have replaced that choice with cream and bumped it up to number one...it's a nice tie in color that you could match a multitude of different colored straps to...completely dressing up or down...just my two roubles worth as well LOL :D

    A variant on the cream is better than brilliant white in my opinion. Gone for the slate as my first choice though. Thought the white was maybe a bit in your face.

    I had white as one of my choices and I would for sure replace it with cream. I love a bit more vintage look of it.
