LOL! I hear ya... I am just groovin on the massive markers so much I am looking past what I consider the small stuff. It is too bad that there is not lume that looks the same color during the day but at night or in the dark it glows a different color. That way the 12 marker tooth could be differentiated.

I think the bezel does a good job defining 12, 3, 6 and 9. I love the well balanced dial of 12 large marks that was part of Ralf's original idea. I don't think it literally should be a mouth, it is more "tribal design" and "island surfer like" to me as a complete circle of large marks... just my opinion, of course my opinion as always is "less is more" and "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" -steve

These last two tried to be suttle using lume colors from the chart in a previous post.

I agree the bezel solves the problem, but only if made to not rotate.  My last idea I think is a balance in keeping with Ralf's nice balance, but a slight shift in the lume color in upper and lower two "teeth" to help with low light orientation.

I see what your saying about the "tribal design", but I was under the impression that Ralf was intending more influence from the teeth of the great shark.  However, I agree that it shouldn't cross a certain line going to far to imitate it.  Perhaps the last one with a slight change in lume color on the four teeth is my favorit balance so far.

I like the less is more... I could even do without the 500m. I love the sterile, clean original design.

Sort of, but I must admit ... it's not too pretty, looks more like a rose garden than a megaladon.  But thanks for doing the graphic.

Looking at the version with red markers, it might look really neat at night with the white face being in full lume and the markers in a red lume on the black band in the outer perimeter of the dial.  A more "3D" look perhaps.

I see what you mean about the rose garden effect with the red, perhaps different colors it would be better.  Then again mabe the extra lume idea simply doesn't fit the theme?
