I've taken on board some of the recommendations and made a few corrections to the model.
1, removed date
2, removed text
3, drilled lugs
4, increased logo size.

5, On this one the bezel numbers are a little thicker

I think you should just keep the logo larger and bring “Mileata” back to the original font.
I like ND but overall dated sell better.
I’d offer a date at 6 with 1/3 or 1/2 l’une marker if workable space wise. It may also help fill in some of the opened up real estate above 6.

Wow that's a really nice improvement. I prefer the more understated bezel text.

I like the cleaner dial but am trying to decide if it’s too empty in the lower hemisphere now for the overall market.

I have added text back to the no date dial. It did look a little empty.

^ that's a winner. If you offer a date and no date, I'd prefer the date be integrated into the 3 o'clock lume plot vice at 6 o'clock. I also prefer the omitted made in Ireland too. Put that on the caseback if you must.

My two cents. I always appreciate a watch that has the date function.

I can’t do without a date, but I like everything else about it - don’t give up on the Quartz GMT!

I like this latest version and appreciate the somewhat maxi dial. A date at 6 would be nice.

I'm a fan. I didn't buy the last one since I'm personally not a fan of DLC watches, but this one looks like a winner. Looking forward to it.
