I think these hands looks very good and this whole project is getting more and more interesting.  I went form ''No, this watch is not for me'' to '' I will get one for sure''.  I really like the black hand combo on dark grey dial and the red / silver hands. It would also be interesting to see a black hour hand with a red minute hand and red tipped second hand as an option.  Anyhow, they all look fantastic to meI hope Ralf will get the answers soon for the bracelet and final price.  I can't wait to see the final dials and delivery date!!!
This watch really is a community project, which makes it unique.  Let's say that Ralf gave us a good base to start with and again, the time and efforts put in this project by Steve, Stef and others is what made the difference.  I've never seen that before in a watch development.  Good work everybody.  There's a bit of everyone in it!;)

Thanks guys. I have a lot of passion for watches and design and I could work with watches every day if I could make a living at it. Thanks to Ralf and 3T for the opportunity to be part of the development and share ideas. I know some times it can be frustrating, but there is a lot of us here and we all have different ideas and opinions and if they were all the same, well that would be boring. This process is teaching me also to have more patience, to not hold on to my ideas as "the best ideas" and to be open to others suggestions and what they would like to see. but I also have to remember this is just one project, there is no limit to what we can come up with and develop in the future if we have the drive, vision, ... (and money :? ) - steve

planning to design bezels next. not much thought has been put into the bezel yet, just the dial. now I will move to the bezel and incorporate some of Stef's designs.. the stainless bezel.

I am with DM71 on this one. When I first saw the initial design, I thought that it was not for me. Now that I have been watching it develop, I have gone from "not for me" to "should I get two???"

I like how the dial has progressed with the raised chapter ring, slighly smaller indexes, thickened marks at five minute increments, and the stainless steel bezel.

I have always liked the original hands.

I really cant think of anything else to improve on with this watch. I am sure the bracelet will be killer.

When I saw Steve's first rendition of the full lume bezel, that was when my interest was really starting to take off. If that is the second option, then I might actually get two... Man is my wife going to kill me...

Welcome. This thread has been going on for a few weeks now. Ralf just got a quote on production and wants to know how many people are serious about buying it.

the link above is the thread to go to to let him know.

this is the thread discussing design ideas, we are about to start discussing different bezel design options in the next few days here on this thread.
