Looking for feedback on some new dials and colors I'm considering for the Sea Venture.

This would have a vintage Helbros style painted on indices and hands & vintage lume. The dial colors would have a sunburst effect,

Look good to me! For some reason the red one doesn't quite do it for me with that bezel but I bet a black, silver, or even grey ghost bezel might look a bit better. I'm interested to see the silver/white dial in real life. It would probably be my pick of the three.

With the half blue/half red, my first thought was the bezels should be 12 hour instead of countdown.

But I'm just probably making your MOQ even more complex!

The dials look good, the silver probably being my favorite, but I agree with yinz and John regarding the bezels. My first thought was that a day/night indicator doesn’t really mesh with a dive bezel. If half and half it should be a 12 hr bezel and if a dive bezel it should be 0-15 or 0-20. The red dial looks great too and seems to be growing in popularity from what I see on various forums but would probably prefer it paired with black or stainless.
