I also think Stef's design C doesn't need to have the larger tooth at 12 (but it does look good as is). I think figuring out which way is up on his dial is no problem with the smaller teeth, and I think the larger 12 is messing with the space a bit. I personally still like the original dial #1 with all big teeth, but we had some people confused about which way was up, so we had to change the dial, but I am cool with it now, but maybe the smaller teeth need to come in a bit since I made them smaller, to make room behind them and take up more space on the large dial. I think the changes would not effect any of the look, just adjust the spacing and size of the teeth a bit. I will work one up just to show what I mean.

basically my design 1 is not an exact rendering, but just a detailed idea, and I will spend a little more time defining the details so it can look as finished as Stef's illustrations.

This is absolutely sweet! The blue carbon dial can be like a trademark of Benarus. If Kolold can trademark "Artic Blue" Ralf can trademark "Benarus carbon blue", right?

Cheers

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.

I have to say the Stef is really on to something here. I would say that version C with the darker dial along with the lume setup from version B is the perfect match. I think that we are really onto something here. Keep it up!

I keep hoping that I am not going to like the watch, but as I have been watching the design options develop, they have gotten better and better with each rendition.

This latest one looks awesome!

I hope this isn't throwing in a curve ball, but I didn't feel I had detailed out dial 1, and after seeing Stef's wonderful drawings, I wanted to add a bit more detail and adjust the spacing and size of the teeth a bit, I felt they got a little off when we mad 12 be larger. 12 is still larger, but the others are not as small now. I also wanted to define the chapter ring more and thicken the border around it. I also wanted to show that the megaldon options might be just swapping out a chapter ring, or switching the dial behind it, but in the end it will be Ralf who can tell us the level of detail that is possible. I also wanted to show these in PVD. -steve










here is the chapter ring by itself...

You should give up Golf! you could buy a lot of watch with just saving the money from the green fees, haha!

I have a fossil shark tooth I was going to take a picture of it next to my Sea Devil, but I misplaced it yesterday, now it is driving me nuts trying to find it.
