    Very small change but greatly improved the look of the dial

    Agreed, looks classy.

    Nice IWC homage

    I prefer Version C, but with a wheel date color matching the dial color.

    In general a more pronounced taper on the bracelet could be better for me, let's say 16 mm instead of 20.

    A small change but a massive improvement. I'll have a version 'A' please, or even an 'A-' (i.e. No-date).

    A couple of subtle tweaks, see if you can spot them.

    Nice! Greater taper (down to 18mm) and black on white date wheel for version C.

    The case is now a slimmer profile, and the bracelet now tapers to 18mm instead of 20mm

    Looking good !

    What is the case height now ?

    Beat me to it.
    To my eye the case height is the same, just the sides are thinner.

    Yes agreed, though I think it would definitely wear "smaller" as a result, which is goodness in my book !

    They're all great but Version A for me all day long. I thought you might be retiring this year but you've got the throttle down instead!

    Case design B with the curving lugs.

    Excited about this watch, particularly given the 38mm size (version A for me). Iíve tried a few along these lines, but this is likely to be the best fit of all.

    This is looking really promising... really like the idea of B. I think it could be stunning on worst and something very different to a collection.

    Great work Eddie. I think all the tweets are improving the design every time.

    I like the champagne dial, makes a change to see a different colour.

    This is coming along nicely, the new case design looks very attractive.
    I would like to mention that I applaud the plans for the waffle, aventurine and linen dials.
    This would be a welcome change from the many boring dials available these days.

    I hope to see this one continuing - looks an exciting prospect. Great to see such consideration around the dial detail; these look very attractive options indeed.

    With a case of this size and shape i think a bracelet taper to 16mm might look even more sharp!

    Great looking watch, but no waffle dial for me, thanks. There are enough hommages out there with a waffle dial, I'd much prefer something glossy, to give it a dressier design

    And a warm welcome to the forum to you as well.
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Yes please

    Now this is something Iíd save up for! As much as I love my 36mm Black Everest, I want it on the strap and the bracelet at the same time! The integrated bracelets on these beauties would mean the strap would stay on my Everest more.

    Rubber strap

    Eddie, if thereís any way for this to make a fitted high quality rubber strap, with a mulled clasp rather than pin and buckle, Iím sure thereíd be a great deal of interest!

    Really like the B version w/o date and the C version. But I think C would work better with a black on white date wheel. And maybe a cyclops.
