Looks interesting but I’m not seeing any specs. Would love to see a real pic too. Thanks for sharing this.

Shame they couldn't find long enough hour and minute hands.

This render is an amateur’s mess as far as design elements go.
  • Is it a pilot watch or a diver or a GMT? Looks to be an odd combination.
  • The aviator triangle is oddly oversized for the face of the watch
  • The hands are too short and fat
  • The inner chapter ring is unnecessarily cluttered with dividing lines and looks like it was sized solely to fit the brand badge
  • The numbers on the inner chapter ring...what is with the backwards 9? Is that part of the “strict quality control”?
  • The date window is awkwardly placed and no color match
  • The logo is distracting
  • The bezel is cluttered...the numbers have been shrunken and displaced by the underlines
Advice: Do a concept and then have somebody knowledgeable design it.
