I gotcha... This will still make a FANTASTIC watch for the guys who want to tone it down a little bit. I on the other hand want a watch that will swallow up all other divers in it's wake!

I guys,  even if i didn't post much in this forum, I've been in the back ground reading what you guys have to say about Ralf's watches since the beginning,  Also, I'm french Canadian so sorry if my English is not perfect or sounds french ;).    When i saw the Barracuda for the firs time, it was sold out but I felt in love right away with it.   Beeing a WIS i felt like i found a brand that was different (i know the case of the Baraccuda was used by a few other companies but none managed to make it stand out like BENARUS  imho), it had the'' tool look'' that i like, it was clean, auto, sapphire, looked solid and professional was limited and, the price!!! Are you serious!!!???  Then the See Devil drawings came out and i didn't miss a second and orederd one, just because of you guys.  I have never read a forum for a product that nobody as anything bad to say about, every single person with a BENARUS was happy.  Ralf was answering all questions and had people involved in the development, first time a saw somthing like that. And again, it had a ''TOOL look'', solid and you could see it had the BENARUS signature.

Since i received my SeeDevil todaysnoopy1.gif (i will be posting pictures tonight) I now know for sure that i will be getting an other BENARUS.  I'm verry interested in the MEGALODON because it has a big case and i like big watches (even on my medium skinny 7'' wrist), the bezel reminds me the one on my Marathon J-SAR because it's massive.  The ETA movement got me all exited but, there is still something with the dial that doesn't work for me.  Again, it's a personal opinion and i'm not asking to design a watch for me, i'm just giving my impression on what came out so far because i have interest for it.  So, i like the idea of Shark teeth and all that but i also saw a Citizen watch in it the first time i saw it and for this reason i feel it still need a bit of work to be outstanding.  At the same time, i know a few of you like it like it is so... I would like to see a more ''instrument'' dial too, keeping in mind that this is a professional diver's watch more than a fashion watch.  I see that Steve L. is doing a lot of work to help (and you have a lot of talent by the way) with other members but at the same time i feel like there is a rush to come out with another watch  fast fast.  I love the case back with the jaw bones done by Steve, i think this has to make it to  production 100%.  I would just like to see other dials since i'm not hooked like a was the first time and i know i'm not the only one.   I want this watch so please, help me Ralf, keep up the good work !!!

Sorry if i wrote a book, maybe i should post more often so i wouldn't have so much on my hart :P.  

Thx for reading!

Hi DM71, An instrument dial would be cool. I am signed up for Dial #1 with the Teeth and 2 piece dial, so I will try and come up with some options that are cool for Dial choice #2 and see what you guys think. I think there are a number of us who are loving Dial #1, and Ralf said he could do 50 of each dial for a total of 100 watches. Many people who don't like the big teeth were suggesting a lume dial, but I think there could be much more development on this #2 dial.

Steve,

I really like the way you've cleaned up the look... this is starting to look more refined which is good. 

I still like the bezel option Ralf showed as all SS which had an innner and outer ring.

I would love to see a blood red dial with white lume teeth.

My wife has been following this thread....she's an artist so she is intrigued about this process....

So she says to me if you are trying to represent the markers on the dial as the jaw of the shark this would be more accurate.......it's  a simple change but kind of interesting....thoughts??

VERY interesting.  It does look like a jaw open.  Maybe add tiny teeth or dots or something at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions as I feel it currently looks very empty.  Otherwise, great idea!

here are some more ideas for the first dial, I like the steel behind the ring, but this is what it would look like with Carbon fiber or a black lume dial.







The blancpain 500 fathoms is mixing lume like this and it is very interesting if you haven't seen it.

the new dial has a plastic ring that sits over the metal dial and the ring has the teeth on it, popping it from the back dial.
