Welcome! Below is Megalodon Dial #1, with Caseback and the concept of the 2 part dial to the right (old version of teeth).

Below that is all the current drawings that have been posted for a possible Dial #2.

The purpose of this thread is to keep the concepts and ideas going until we have a popular dial #2 that we can agree upon with a poll, but before we vote, we need to go further with solving dial #2 and narrowing it down.

I really like design #1 and lume design concept D as #2 option. I really like the luminous bezel and dial combo.
Looks fantastic!toon1.gif

Will design #1 have the larger 12 oclock marker like the complete watch rendering, or all markers the same like the dial sample?

And this is a new idea. That dial #2 is the same as dial #1, to be consistent with the Megalogon family, much like all the Sea Devils are united with similar dials. but variations in the dial behind the chapter ring, or a different colored chapter ring, lume ring, etc. Dial #2 will share the same characteristics as #1, so it too can be a Megalodon, and the case back will make sense with the dial.

So here is 3T WIS Sparkii 76's idea of a blue carbon fiber dial like the Barracuda, but under the Megalodon teeth.

yes, the old renderings were prior to the 12:00 tooth change, sorry for the confusion. - steve

I really like the carbon fiber dial option again, It's what really what sparked my interest in Benarus from the beginning, I wonder if there are other colors available besides the blue, I already have that on my Cuda, but atleast the big teeth are still there, this is an easy way to see the dials now, Thanks, Steve

how about blood red, for the shark. I know Jim wanted to see this earlier.

This was quick..(the hands need some work). I would think silver or black hands would work with this.

The hour hand looks like a dive knife.  I like that.

hi there,

i realized that my first proposals do not really fit to the concept.
that's why i did some more variations / interpretations on the megalodon-teeth-theme for dial#2.

basically i used some design ideas like the brushed steel, double lume and the chapterring as extra layer which came up in this thread during the last days - but see for yourselves...

version A /
light brushed steel dial with orange "teeth" the white lume chapterring ist cutout. bezel should be acrilic/enamel with darkgray base and lume indices - also some orange as highight. numbers and minute indices are printed in medium gray.


the nightview

-----
version B /
light brushed steel dial with additional green lume "teeth", chapterring is white lume.


the nightview


-----
version C/
dark brushed steel dial with green lume "teeth" chapterring which is made of light brushed steel and cutout. bezel should be acrilic/enamel with darkgray base and lume indices - also some orange as highight. numbers and minute indices are printed in dark gray.

the nightview




this whole megalodon thing is so exciting - i jus had to do some more
suggestions (...well, i still prefer a solution with numbers, only
teeth is not enough for me on that huge dial).

but now i'm kind of tired (its 5:10 am here) time to sleep...

good night everyone.

stef.

I like lume dial concept A (the first (left) one out of the three).  Less teeth on the dial.

I think the blue carbon should be offered as an option also.
