    Great, a timer too.
    Intended WR? 100m?
    I'll ask what can be achieved.

    The more I look the more of a B1 vibe I get,

    Me too, which is the only thing against it, as I already have a B-1, which I wouldn't want to part with.

    Still, I think it would look different enough to have both.

    While I would love one I hope it is not available until next year. Just bought another 3D printer and the Baby Dreadnaught.

    These hands would be more practical as the sword hand covers too much of the digital display, unless a skeleton sword was used?..also they look good.

    I think there might be legibility issues due to the lack of a backlight.

    It amazes me that they make an ana-digi movement without one, it seems a major omission to me and was why I eventually moved on my Orient ana-digi despite generally being very fond of it.

    Definitely think back-lit would be much better in term's of practicality and be a better selling point.

    Eddie any further thought of a DN chrono (traditional or Bullhead) or the super Quartz. I searched but could not find the old threads where these were discussed.

    Just when I thought I was out I was pulled back in.

    I couldn't get the Super Quartz, ETA reserve it for Breitling and Seiko and Citizen keep theirs in-house only. Not sure a chrono would work given the comparatively small dial.

    Calibre JP3605 but Google can't tell me who makes the movement.

    I had one of those and sold it years back for perhaps $150 USD or so. Didn't like the negative-type LCD display (and still don't like any negative displays). It was a nice watch otherwise.

    Having boccia bund with the t241 module, gen2 x33 and a breitling chronospace military. I like the DN version and would get one in a minute.
