Dear friends,

Thanks for all your comments as a result of which I asked Aaron to make a few new renderings.
The basic concept was really good but, after thinking about many of your suggestions, I asked him to refine what we had by making the new versions less complex: all numerals or all diamond markers.
The rest of the movement will come soon.
If you have the time and inclination I would appreciate your comments.
Thanks for reading

All of them looks great !

I’d go for the third one because of the contrast of the black dial with the hours aperture, and the way the numerals take the space of this aperture.

I agree

but have to make a decision....eek! Regards Antony

Regardless the one you choose it’s gonna be a truly special timepiece !

So congratulations in advance, and please keep us updated !

I really love how you build your collection.

Working with watchmakers who do it all by themselves. This, whichever version, is going to be a great addition to your fantastic collection. Oh yeah, hi.

Thank you, it is an honour

to work with an artist like Aaron. I hope that everything a copacetic with you. Kind regards Antony

They all look superb.

A difficult choice!

 By: ant : January 22nd, 2023-08:16

Of course, you're right

 By: ant : January 22nd, 2023-11:34
but you know (or maybe not) what obsession is like. It's like a ratchet, after each step you can't go back, only onwards. Hopefully for the better! Kind regards Antony

Excellently said.

All nice...

 By: Kurt Behm : January 22nd, 2023-03:29
but I like picture #2 (middle) the best.

Thanks for your opinion.

Take the first, Ant!

There is no need to get numerals, only indices with or without diamonds… Contrast and legibility is also the best by the first version! Yours, Adam

I must say that

the more I look at them the more I am leaning towards your viewpoint. Kind regards, Antony

3 6 9 12

Really nice work -- I also like #3 with the dark dial; I'd be curious to see how it looks with numerals only at the compass points (3 6 9 12) with the triangular markers at the other hour markers. And for giggles, curious how this design might look with R... 

Here you go!

Super. And thanks for engaging and sharing this journey with us.

 By: Jay (Eire) : January 22nd, 2023-15:37
I have a question, what am I seeing between 7 and 8? And is there any way to relocate whatever that is, perhaps underneath the 6 position where visually it would be less obvious. It could be just the angle of the renderings but on the first iterations and...
