yahoo.gifI also like #1 and #4.yahoo.gif  You are a busy man.  A 2824 option would be good But for me it would probably put it out of my budget right now.  Put me down for one and will take ser no. 5yahoo.gifyahoo.gifyahoo.gif

awesome. I remember 2 years ago thinking a Seiko SKX007 was a big watch, and I thought 22mm lugs was as big as I should go. I have a 6.5 inch wrist and am not afraid of this monster. I may need to hit the gym though, the megalodon is inspiring me to lift weights again. haha!

Yes, number 1 would be my choice, luminous bezel would make the watch.

I completely agree.  The dial is spectacular, but that bezel with luminous marking would really make this one EPIC!

Megalodon : MEG-a-la-don; meaning "big tooth", was a giant shark that lived in prehistoric times. The oldest remains of this species found are about 18 million years old. Megalodon could grow to more than 60 ft long and is also quite possibly the largest shark ever to have lived.

My wrist is 7.5", yet I am overall only 5'7" 170 lbs.  Did a lot of gymnastics, swimming and surfing.  Megladon will eat the Seiko Black Monster and spit it out for breakfast.

I can't believe that Ralf is already into his 4th watch design.  47mm is a good starting point for a big watch....

I keep coming back to look at this. This is one of the most handsome modern designs I have seen. I think it has the potential to be the most popular and quickest selling watch in the line to date.

My ideas:
100 pcs of this case
You can choose your bezel and the crown will match to the bezel like on the drawing.
I will check the price for eta, but I guess with eta it will be about $100 more
Maybe we split  50 dials like  the drawing and 50 in a 4 numbers style e.g. like the Sea Devil and in a dark blue grey brushed color
Hands like drawing
double domed sapphire
500m
 Bezel 1 shall be luminous but we are still checking how to do best.A sapphire bezel inlay is very expensive, maybe a acrylic inlay or filled with enamel.
Bezel 2 gets a black   inlay with numbers and markers like the Sea Devil
Bezel 3 will stay like it is.
A thick bracelet is needed please make some style suggestions

 And Steve what about a MEGALODON case back;)

WOW!

Gotta say that is crazy!  I'd go with 47mm, the first bezel and I agree with one of the post about slightly smaller markers. And go nuts with a caseback design!  As for the 2824, the current economy needs to be considered before you have a $1000 watch. Maybe the Selitta SW-200 if the price break is better?

We said the Megalodon needed to be a big watch -- you are on the right track.  Good job! ThumbsUp02.gif

Cheers

Ryan

Just saw this post after I posted mine! If the ETA is only $100 more to the cost, then go for it! Make ETA based watches while you still can!
