Do you prefer noon at the bottom or top of your watch face?
I like the idea of putting a custom card dial on a watch. Where did you get the cheap 24 hour quartz watches to put them on?How about these three? A few months ago I made up two card dials for cheap 24hr quartz watches. These are variations on the previous uploaded dials.
The other facet in play with this is which wrist you wear your watch on. I wear mine on my right wrist, so the zero-hour on top exposes the afternoon beyond my cuff.On a "12 on top" watch I like the fact that the part of the watch face most likely to be obscured by a sleeve is also the least important part of the day.
Hi TonT - I think we can get a bit obsessed with the lume issue - the cockpit lighting or a red LED torch always seems to work for me! ;-)I have owned both versions, and I currently use my Yes Zulu with 12 on top with a custom 24 hour inner chapter ring while working. The hard part is switching back and forth between two different set ups.
My pet peeve with most 24 hour watches is that they are not lumed appropriately. I really like the re-lume that Dennis did on the Early Bird. I really want a purist SST, but I don't see how you can read them at night. Any thoughts?
