You made a nice watch, with 3 "faces"!
avatar September 23, 2016 01:16AM
The first looks like a chrono diver, but with a WR of 100m. it's just a "swimmer". It also is not a real diver because of the "Flieger" style strap (which is not to my liking to be honest. I don't like rivets in the strap.) The crown doesn't fit a diver either. The same can be said about B. It's only difference is the steel bezel. This system would look nice on a real WR 200/300 m. diver with bezel A and B, a steel bracelet or rubber to keep it cheaper and a real diver's screw down crown. I think you meant to have the hands all the same, like in picture A? (Not white hands in B and C?)

The size is just a little on the small side, I'd prefer 42 mm (Seiko size) and a 22 mm strap/bracelet.

For the back, my preference is C.

But I think for what my taste is, I can find tons of watches readily available, usually to expensive for me... Oops

I think the best watch for what you had in mind is a kind of Flieger style in watch C. But I can change my mind easily a day later...
