I think it looks quite cool as well. Very Happy

I don't know if the date window at 6 o'clock would be an issue if using it on another watch. The hands would also have to stand out sufficiently not to be lost with the bold features of the dial.

I agree what you are saying about the hands , I think the hands on the watch Bruce shows do not stand out enough , I would maybe have them blue .

Possibly something like this.......

It wouldn't need to be red but would be nice if the sweep second hand had a matching colour on its tip. Something with a strong lume would be good as well. Very Happy

That's a very good idea. I think if there was a strip of lume within the brass hand that would be really nice. Very Happy

Brass with lume would be very cool on the white one. Would have to be the right width for the one in the OP or they'd get lost if too narrow.

agreed and if you could fit it all in a brass or bronze case that would make a very nice watch Very Happy
