All the dial colors look great! For me, it would be a tough decision between the green and blue.

Just a suggestion, but could you make the text color on the dial in GOLD? This is how it is done on the Golden Tuna, and I think it really works well with the look of the case and hands. White would stick out too much in my opinion.

I thought of another possible improvement. Could you possibly change the rubber strap to 24/22mm with the bronze buckle being 22mm in size?

The current 24/20 strap cannot support the weight of this watch, and a 20mm buckle is honestly too small. Since there is not going to be a bracelet, a 22mm buckle could be reused to fit an Isofrane and a much wider variety of aftermarket straps.

I like this idea, with the addition of the seconds chapter and markers printed in gold.

Looking closely at my A1, I'm not sure if the lume could be applied with enough precision to have the markers printed in gold. If the lume could be centered to show a thin gold border that would be great, but this may be too much to ask.
The text and second track in gold and markers in white might be good tho, as the white border around the markers only shows under magnification.

thankyou.gif for the kind comments

We have now a  NEWS page on our website and inform about the pre order

It will start tomorrow Oct 10th and will end in 14 days.

During this time you can choose your bezel, the case finish and  dial color.
You can get the crown and case back in PVD coated and your solid bezel with or without lumed markers but no choice for the serial number sorry
 
I agree with bobabreath and the text will be also in gold like the minute markers
 
We cannot get this rubber strap in 24/22mm so it will be the regular A1 rubberstrap and the bronze buckle 20mm, but it will be more solid than the steel buckle
 

We need a $199 non refundable deposit and the pre order price will be $1199 including the shipping fee.

If you like to pre order please only per email to info@armidawatches.com
 

The production time will be about 6 month
Order is sent so we estimate the watches early March 2012

Excellent to hear this is moving forward! Chris, would it be possible to get some pictures or a color code for the green dial? I'd like to get a better idea before placing a pre-order. Thanks!
