I also love this look!

Ralf.... not sure what you think of this type of bracelet but this is my NIXON 42-20...



NIXON uses the same bracelet style on the 42-20 (42 mm) and also the 51-30 (51 mm) and it carries the weight of a big watch really well.

I'm not a bracelet fan at all but I love this one.  It's very comfortable and looks a bit different from all the others out there at the moment.







Cheers!

PS... I love the name MEGALODON!

Ryan, you really think the markers are to big??
It is named MEGALODON and not mouse tooth
:D

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

For the Nixon bracelet,I like the style but  I also  think the links are to long, that makes it more uncomfortable imo

I really like the first drawing and bezel alot.  It seems like the ideas for colors and the bracelet are going in the right direction.  I'm curious about one thing that might seem trivial, not sure how many really care, but what about a 1000m depth rating.  Is this possible?

Your first two watches had this rating, and it seems fitting for one called Megladon.  Everything about it is big, robust and powerfull.  The ultimate predator of the deep.  To me 1000m puts it in it's own class were it belongs.  Or maybe I'm off the deep end on this one;)

Don't touch that dial perfect perfect.gif I like the #1 bezel, and the last one. I'm not sure about the lugs they probably work great with a bracelet, but I think it would look strange with a strap. My advice would be to  refine the lugs, similar to the black diamond. I said similar not copy.:)toon1.gif ThumbsUp02.gif Either way I want one it must have an ETA.yourock.gif

I know how everyone feel about renalto but the bracelet on the T-rex is huge and beefy so maybe something like that might look good.

Sure 1000m would be cool, but this is a big watch with a big glass and for 1000m it has to be quite thick in this diameter and the glass is a expensive part.
Also the case has to be thicker than.
1000m is cool but unnecessary imo, my aim is offering reliable watches. If we decide for a Eta and also  1000m we come in a area where some have to pass.
Even with ETA  I want to try to keep it max $500 so I think 500m is enough $1 for each meter.

You're correct this is going to be a large watch, 500m is about right especially a human being is not going pass on or about 120m anyway, and for some reason you do, you're not going to be worrying about any watch  subtlelaugh.gif  I leave that to the pro diver.:) JMHOmistake.gif

Ralf,

They seem lightly large and round at the base near the bezel. Maybe sharpen them up a little. It's weird but I see almost a flower design, or pedal design when I look at the markers.  And with the black dial the "BENARUS" could be in blood red, hmmm?





Maybe something like that? I really suck at Photoshop.
