Well done, a great render.

Now that’s possibly the nicest CW I think I’ve ever seen! I’ll take one of those :D

Re: Non CW of the Day

There are a couple of watches I like very much in SC. Could I manage 43mm? Normally I wouldn't give it any consideration, but a mate has just bought a 43mm Aquis and it wears smaller than I thought. And this is unquestionably my favourite Oris model ... https://i.ibb.co/MNHTHxV/IMG-20190729-192142....

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

I think these are looking good. I always think white dialled watches risk having a lack of contrast between polished hands and the dial - and therefore, wonder what it would like if the hands (and possibly the hour markers) were edged in black? Finally, if I'm being picky, I cannot see the advantag...

Putting aside the logo debate, can other aspects of the design be altered.

Specifically, for the GMT designs 4/5 could the bezel rotation be changed from being unidirectional to bidirectional?

Re: Comparing Apples to Oranges: Tudor BB 58 vs. Oris Divers 65 Bronze Bezel

I waiting on a BB58 so you can guess where my vote goes. Nevertheless, I’ve also got an enormous crush on Oris at present after getting my green Aquis. I reckon there’s three Oris models at, or near, the top of my wish list... I’ve been selling off watches recently to raise funds (see above) and als...

Preference for 4, 5, 2 in that order.

40 or 42mm but not 38mm.

Re: Decisions, decisions.

I feel rather the same about legibility. I think I’ve just about given up on complicated dials and chronographs with their subdials; whilst attractive in photos, they are not so good for me in real life. My limited experience with Tudors is that they’re very easy to read and hopefully in the near fu...

I’m ambivalent about date windows. Done well they’re OK, but equally I do like a classic non-date like the C65 Diver.

I’d prefer them to be at 6 for symmetry, but I draw the line at the window being at 4.5 which I think is an abomination :bäh:
Forgot to mention, I hate cyclops...
