I think that Stef's C design looks good, but I am somewhat concerned with the limited lume. I think that I prefer Stef's design option B where the chapter ring is full lume, and it extends into the teeth.

Just my two cents.

Ralf's designs have always been about keeping things simple and understated. I am still a huge fan of dial #1.

 

That being said, in keeping with that design, I really like 2D first, and 2H second. This keeps Ralf's original design and just tweaks the color. The others are too far of a departure from the original design that I loved, almost to the point of belonging to another line.

 

All the designs look very nice, but the tie with the Megalodon and the 'teeth' is what this line should be about IMHO.

 

[ edit]

 

... and after reading through the entire thread again, I have to agree that all of Stef's gen 2 designs have merit as well. I liked ALL of them so do nt really have another choice to throw into the pot.

Here are a few ideas for dial #2. Using the same chapter ring as dial #1 and using a different dial underneath.

For those that are confused about Dial #1 It will use this chapter ring shown below with a dark grey brushed steel dial underneath. It has been posted many times in this thread. I am not sure what writing it will have on the dial, maybe a vote to clear that up?

** DIAL #2 IDEAS BELOW **

Blue Carbon Fiber


Grey Carbon Fiber


Black Lume Dial


White Lume Dial


Light Green/Blue Brushed Steel

This is Dial #1 But the word "MEGALODON" will be on the back and not the dial, I just got the word on that from Ralf.

If i may give my opinion, I like the idea of different colors on that  dial #1 but think that since we are doing a second dial, it should be different. Now it's one dial with 5 different colorsAgain, i think Stef is on something very interesting with his dial C.  It's very fonctionnal, easy to read and distinctive from dial #1.  Definitly, that Megalodon as evolved a lot since first drawings!  Good work guys.  hand6.gif

The Sea Devil was multiple dials in multiple colors, but each color was its own LE dial. Same with the Moray, with the exception of the Dart Dial.

I really like Stef's Dial "C", but Dial #1 is Grey Steel, and a Blue Carbon is not an alternative to Dial #1, it would be a separate dial with its own LE numbers 1-50

If the color changes, it is a different dial... not just a different color.

I hear what you're saying Steve but i was under the impression we were looking for a different design and to me changing dial colors isn't a change of design, maybe i misunderstood.  The Moray really have two different designs from dial one to dial two.  Anyhow, it's only my opinion, I'm not saying I'm right.  I was really not in love with the fist dial i saw for the Megalodon with only big markers because I taught it was not a functional dial, it was impossible to tell time with precision and after everybody gave their opinion, look at what you did with it.  It's a winner, and i like it ;).

It appears I'm in the minority and will probably catch grief for saying this, but this design is just a little too busy and overwrought IMHO. It is not one I would consider buying.

It's your opinion sooner76 and it's as good as mine or others opinion so, no offense! :P  At the end, I'm sure this watch will be a success (it's already one if you look at the amount of interest for it) and so far i think we can say that Ralf as made the right decisions.  He's the one with the final word and i trust is judgment.
