New watch from Smiths.
Inspired from an old classic MC: The Vincent Black Shadow.
The watch is 40mm so everybody can wear it...

I like the concept and design,but the Great Britain at 12 leaves me cold,it seems to draw attention away from the sweet dial imo.ThumbsUp02.gif

I like the way the markers was executed but you are right Oscar... The -Great Britain- is very "on top".
On the original gauge there is a "Miles per hour" there instead.
A small "Great Britain" under the 60 marker and a simple triangle marker on the 12 might have been a good alternative for those who are not so attached to the island...

I like it but the GB throws the dial in2 disarray & your focus is drawn to it a little too much.
