Now I have a better idea now.

What do you guys say we do something sporty with strong lines?

Something masculine?

I consolidated everyone's opinion.

Ok start with the case...
Who is in for a 44mm case that is about 15mm thick?


Works for me Anders. ;)

Anders sounds awesome...Just my opinion make the case 15mm thick and that's not including the bezel.

No Date... If you have a date, then no magnifier over it.

Alrighty guys!

Teddy: 15mm without the bezel is insanely thick! We are talking about 20-25mm thick with a bezel? That is what I call a wrist weapon. Hahhahahaah.

But I am considering a 15mm-ish thick case. What do you think?

I have drawn a lot of case shapes and sizes. What a way to burn the weekend.

Ciao
Anders

Ok your wright 20mm is crazy.  All right a 15mm-ish thick case sounds good.  44mm would be cool.  Lug 24 or 22.  Wide bezel.  2801 sounds good.    What about hands sword, plongeur, saber, stick&ball...? Anders what ever you do, I'm sure it will be awesome.

I am all for a 44mm x 15mm case.

While I am a huge fan of the Oceantimer, I think I'd love it even more if it had just a couple more mm of dial.  I also think the bezel would be much easier to grip if it were a bit taller.  Throw in an auto movement and I'm in WIS heaven!

BTW, if there's a set of hands on a watch that makes the hour and minute hands more obviously different, I haven't seen them.  I don't mean to suggest that this is a design you should stick with -- I'm just noting that I see the Oceantimer's hands as the most successful design aspect of the O'timer (IMHO).

Thanks for the opportunity to voice my opinion!

I have a few ideas but its all handsketched and in the infant stage now.

So until I can put the ideas together, I wont want to show my lousy drawing skills.

;)

So hang in there guys and keep those ideas coming.

Anders

Appreciated mate. Ill try to see if there is any variant of the OceanTimer's hands. Those are made by us specially for Oceantimer.

Anders, a lot of great ideas have been thrown out to you, but I would have to second Ken on the case size. I think most people(Hucky excluded) would find 44mm a bit large aestheticaly. Also, I really like the idea of going retro with the ETA 2801.
