WOW Stef, version C with a luminous chapter ring would be incredible. This is now my #2 favorite. Great designs!

Great work, Steve and Stef.  When you guys are done with your design ideas, could you please start working on a foolproof way to rob a bank so that I can afford as many Megalodon's as possible?  Bouncy.gifThere are so many that I like now!

I particularly like the option of blood red carbon fiber.  I'm sure it exists, but I personally have never come across a dive watch with red carbon fiber yet.

as it is a bold design what about the possibility of a shark on the #2 dial instead
of automatic/megadolon/500 m?

I think Stef has done another great job on versions C, B and A. I will choose in that order. I would also love to see these designs incorporate the raised stainless steel bezel as shown in his previous designs. This combination would give a functional diving watch with classical/timeless appeal.

I really do believe that this project, also incorporating ETA movement, has the potential to put Benarus on the map as a premium dive watch company.

Would suggest leaving the reference to ETA movement to the back of the watch, as this is normal practice.

Regards,
Jo

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.



I was late to the party and missed out on the Barracuda......this one in calling my name

Good choice, Steve. The blue carbon/orange minute is a great alternative, and I like the way it ties back to the watch that started it all for the Benarus brand.

The option on the right is very nice, but I still wish it connected more closely to design #1. Maybe if the small "teeth" were lumed and/or the 3-6-9 markers were downsized, so that the hour marker pattern more closely resembled that of design #1 . . . I don't know, I'm not a designer, but it still feels to me more like another watch design rather than a variation of a single core design.

BTW, thanks for posting all those earlier alternatives in a size closer to the real thing. Maybe it's just me, but I find it easier to imagine what a watch would look like on my wrist when I see the design close to actual size.
