yes, we agree Nabco, Ralf should post a new poll once we have some designs narrowed down.

Nabco,

I like this design the best so far.  Looks like the watch can jump out and bite someone.  I am still hoping to see RED DIAL w/ white lume teeth.  Now may be try adding the inside view of the gill rakes at 9 and 3.  Looking into the mouth of the monster.

I also like Steve Laughlin's design with the black lume -- the image of the Blancpain is very cool.

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??

OK, since we are talking about date windows, I'm just gonna throw this out there ... plus I love this watch but can't afford it ;) . How 'bout a date window between 1 and 2 (or maybe either at 2, or between 2 and 3). Not many watches out there with a date ABOVE centerline:

I do like the idea of a blood red dial.  Hopefully, this will be an option.

Another thought -- to make this watch truly remarkable, the indices "TEETH" could have the lume painted on chrome... like ORIS TT1

If Ralf is going to upgrade the mvt to ETA, then details on the dial should be considered to make the MEGALADON more than just a big fun watch.  Megaladon has the potential to be a true collectible, and eye-popping watch. 

So, imagine the shape of the BIG TEETH with silver/ chrome outlining w/ the teeth raised on the dial.... BGW9 white lume w/ blood red dial, and gill plates in a black lume, or C3 layer under the dial like the Blancpain.

Hey, I am just being creative, and making suggestions...and not intending to knock any previous designs or prototypes.

Steve,

 

i like that you referenced the blancpain.  A mix of lume would make the watch more visible and night and thus more in line with it tool watch ancestry....yet in a very modernized style. I would keep pushing this style.

Just saw this thread - killer project & amazing value - go with the ETA and multi-bezel option, and sign me up for one!!

This dial gets my vote too... looks stunning...

are these lugs longer than the barracuda and shorter than the sea devil?

while waiting for Ralf to get back home I want to post these to get some feedback on the direction it is going. this is for a possible dial 2 option: it would be a white lume dial with black hands, red second hand.

Fantastic looking watch.  I just received a Sea Devil and the Megalodon will be added as well.

Its very simple, but looks awesome.

I like the white dial + white bezel design too. snoopy1.gif Somehow it reminds me of a panda.
