What happened to the dial color? This rendering looks flat and washed out.

I’m down for a date-dial, pending the orange dial is the original shade.

I think I am going to be on board with this one. Not sure I will be able make pre-order, funds allowing but definitely going to get the orange dial no date, it looks great. I don't have an orange diver and at this price point, who can day no. Wish there were some pics of case profile....

I think you’d be able to produce this in several colors that would all look good. The dial should be easily adaptable because of its simple design.
You should try yellow.

The watches will be able to be easily modified by the owner if they choose.
