Karlskrona Hemlig - UPDATE 5/20/19

Post by Bradystraps » Sat Dec 15, 2018 6:16 am

Hi all,
Been working on fine tuning the design and specs of my upcoming Hemlig Tactical Dive Watch. Here are the latest renders...

I will also offer in no date dial versions. More details coming soon.


Happy Holidays to everyone!

Looks good. A couple thoughts - maybe the hands could be a bit wider and maybe the logo could be done in a dark grey rather than black on black. It just might give a little detail to the dial without giving up too much “tactical” style.

That sounds good. The dial looks a bit empty...

Looking good. I agree that the hands could be slightly wider. Just don't make the case too thick!

I like the wider hands suggestion, but also think it looks well balanced as is.

I think the sterile dial is perfectly appropriate for an homage of this type.

The minute and hour hands look ok to me, slightly larger will also be ok but not a deal breaker as is.
Maybe the seconds hand arrow could be a tad bigger.

Regarding the logo, I think black on black would would great if it has some sort of 3D effect (ie embossed), otherwise a very subtle dark grey would also be cool as suggested.

No. Completely different case and size proportions.

Baltic Shield specs, from the website, but height at 13.5. So this one is only 0.5mm shorter, it seems.

I may go 12mm thickness. 41mm and 20mm lugs are definite though. It will wear a tad smaller than the Baltic/Nordics.
