I agree...albeit a nice concept I prefer the other dials....with 49 yr old eyes that suffer from presbyopia (it's an aging process of the eyes meaning I need longer arms) it would be a hard dial to read.....JMHO

Stef's Designs could be a whole new series of their own. They are great and I am sure he could do more designs that are equal or better to be sold in a series.

I guess if enough vote, it could be done in this series, but this Megalodon edition could be completed and kept uniform with just variations of the same concept (Dial #1).

Just my opinion on keeping things together.

Steve

I love the white faced dial

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

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

STEF's "M" DIAL is my favorite, because of legibility and I like the numbers.  I would like to see a TOOL WATCH SS bezel

STEVE's DIALS are truest to the Megalodon theme.  Of these, I prefer grey carbon, black lume and white lume in that order.

Tempus Fugit design is of interest...at this time, I prefer version "C".  I woul like to see a TOOL WATCH SS bezel, and perhaps different color dial.

Process of elimination, I would delete the Diver Dial Concept as not enough teeth.  I would delete Lume Dial Concept "C" because chapter ring is too busy.  I would delete Lume Dial Concept "A" for the opposite reason, not enough detail. Lume Dial Concept "B" shows the best balance and should be included in the next round of voting.

I would like to see a bluish green dial, bright blue, or grayish blue.

I would like to see a TOOL WATCH bezel as an option on any or all of the styles.

This continues to be an amazing, enjoyable, and creative collaboration thanks to all!

Jim

I like this design a lot !

Not too busy for me... consider Breitling Steelfish  or any chrono dial and this design is not too busy by comparison.

I'll be getting some variation of dial #1, whether the original brushed steel grey, or some coloured carbon fibre type dial. I would also like to see what a red carbon fibre dial might look like. The white lume dial also has potential!

Steve, Stef, Ralf, all of you keep up the good work!

Point of Clarification -- I was referring to this dial, which looks really great .. not sure if it is one of STEF's designs or if someone modified STEF's dial?



BUT MY Number One Choice continues to be -- the dial shown below on the far RIGHT   STEF's "M" dial.... w/ TOOL EDGE BEZEL would be perfect.

I'm really diggin Stef's C dial, I just wonder what it would look like with a slightly thinner chapter ring and fill in the small teeth with lume.  Either way, I like it...cool10.gif

Jim, I believe they are all Stef's designs. They are very well done indeed.

Here is a red carbon fiber for you guys to see. -steve

Went back to the beginning and saw that Steve already posted a red carbon fibre dial concept.

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.
