Karlskrona Hemlig Prototype Pictures - First look

Post by Bradystraps » Thu Aug 15, 2019 3:26 pm

Finally, some quick and (very) dirty pics of the Hemlig Prototype. Certainly not there yet but, headed in the right direction.
Making a change to the hand set (white border, not steel and a bit larger), ghost logo will be matte finish, crown will be more recessed. A few more refinements I'm sure along the way.

As always, input, feedback, criticism of any type etc. is welcomes and appreciated. :cheers:

It's heading in the right direction, and you have the right changes planned. Do what you can to make it shorter, so it doesn't stand awkwardly tall.

Looks great and agree with the changes - especially shortening the crown

Good stuff!

Agreed. I think you have identified the key points.

Agree with the changes, specially the hands. Can you take a side profile photo to gauge the thickness and caseback (how much it protrudes). Thanks!

Looks really good. Agree that the logo absolutely has to be matte.

Have you tried it with a white date wheel? I think it would help even out the dial.

I think the watch looks nice though.

Also, how about red date numbers?

Considered red date wheel numbers a la Sinn. I wanted to keep the look stealth and simple. Definitely will be black wheel though. White stands out too much for my liking and accentuates the date too much.
