I'm thinking about using gold sword hands, These old military watches below used the sword hands, I think for the old MoD specs (Ministry of Defense). I haven't seen any versions out there with gold sword hands and think it would look great.

+1, even though I hear you regarding "bumping up to 42mm ..." 44mm is probably the smallest I would buy personally (and understand the point of being true to the original specs)

Also love the gold sword hands part ...looks great.

Keep up the good work, and expect great things to come:0)

this one will be 42mm, the raven watches might get up to 44mm for a future model, but I think for a true military style it should not be so big. The Navy SEALS helped JLC design a military watch and they told them to bring it down to 42mm.

42mm is a most resonalble size for most wrist. So that makes since.

Thanks Steve. But I think there will be quite a number on 3T that can go and will go 44mm. Anyway, in case you have a change of heart on the variant size, I'll jump in thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif

okay, I think the sword hands we can use on a different project for Raven in the future.

I'd personally prefer the Mercedes hands an 42 is bigger than the original 40mm without being too big, a size most can feel comfortable with IMHO. I'm Definitely interested:)

I agree on 42mm but I like the sword hands over the Mercedes. To me, for this type of watch simple and purposeful rather than ornate is the way to go.
