This thread is ONLY for the discussion and voting of the Special Project's theme and the name of the watch (if it is decided that a name will be used).

While Laco is most associated with historical Pilot watches, the typical B-hur hommages have been widely done. I think doing something different would be better for such a limited run. I do like the dial below, finding it keeps it in the genre, but different than an A or B dial.

In terms of my own thoughts, I would prefer a watch with more historical reference than modern. The movement is also small (26mm), so I think a smaller case would be more in keeping with the design. From an earlier post, it sounds like the two smallest case sizes would be 38mm and 42mm. It would also be nice to have an exhibition back. While the movement is not special in design or finishing, it would still be nice to see. As a variation off of a pilot, I would also suggest something like an officer's watch (deck watch style) with arabics and a dark dial. The hands would be on the traditional side with no date. It will be interesting to see how this project evolves.
