Re: Much, Much Better!!
In Response To: Much, Much Better!! ()

I swapped out the bezel for the Hodinkee Orange Boy Tachy bezel (I wonder if this could be requested as a special order through Tag?). I removed the rectangular lume plots at 3 and 9 as these elements are not consistent with the viceroy theme (I thought about adding a small round lume plot in it's place). Something felt a bit off with the hands, I thought maybe they were too small. In the end I thinned out the red stripe on the hour and minute hands. Perhaps the subdial hands should be made thicker also.

Cheers Luther
