folks
i like this style dial
two sets of numbers
1-12 and 13-24

the example has hands but this is a DIAL INTEREST thread

we are not talking colors, lume, font, etc
just judgeing interest in a dial with similar numbering
yes this is a Seiko dial, and it would have a 4 oclock spot for date

for lots or reasons, lets not
get into a dial design, thread :)



would like one on my Bronzebat but darn old
Chris says the only way to be cost effective
is for 100 of em

no i am not taking pre orders, nor is Chris
this is just to see if any other folks have an interest and if so how many...

so Ladies, any interest??

I will update this post with counts


1) Bill Wilson - 2 dials
2)
3)

(98 more to go)

Looks just about like every other military style dial I've seen, i.e. my Marathon T-SAR. I think Lum-Tec likes to be a little more original..

Sorry, Bill -- this is not a dial design I particularly like. However, I'd love to see a watch with a simple internal rotating 12hr bezel with a similar face to this. To me, that would be a very useful watch --- without going to the need for a GMT movement.

Not my cup of tea really, but I'd like to encourage you to keep posting ideas.

This is really something that makes LT so special, to listen to our wishes (except for that darn domed crystal that is).

Cheers,

Marc

Clearly understood Bill! Just that a 1-12 / 13-24 doesn't float my boat. I like the stencilled "army style numbers" on the Abyss a lot though.

Cheers,

Marc

Not to hijack my own thread
but sure would be nice to pick up and feel/smell/fondle these things at a Local AD.........

would really cut down on my Web time LOL

AND prob would result in more purchases.....

What about starting a thread which could/should be made sticky that we post our dial ideas or better still designs. That way Chris can hopefully gain extra inspiration from right here.

This is a good idea. And we can gain some sense of popularity by "liking" the designs we...er...like, rather than voting. Let's do IT!

I prefer the more military style of that font you suggest ( in my opinion anyway ) rather than the more cartoon style offered on the bronze bat. I could do without the 24hr markings though. I'd like to see classic A or B style Flieger markings, then the bronze bat would be perfect.
