It's a clean watch design..
the trick is the crystal

I have some technical ideas

Another "design problem is the hight difference
i like the design especially the crystal curved edge, also the lugs and the hands has some (Squid) aesthetic feel to it.
it feels like an old and modern design at the same time, thats good. im more of a designer than an engineer, so i can't tell you much about technical stuff. i like the overall design.
may i ask you about the software you used for rendering ? and did you plot the cross section view before modeling it in 3D ?
Thanks for the advice: I'll need to think redesign the lugs...I think as a rough concept it has a few things working for it, but currently this would be a pretty impractical watch. Assuming the 6498 or 6497, those lugs will be well over 50mm (l2l) and the thickness looks to be getting up there as well.
My first suggestion would be to base it off a different movement and reassess the size and proportions so that it becomes more wearable.
Hi, I'm still thinking about this... The big crown is intentionally, I want to keep the totall shape as clean as possible...so I'm redesigning this for the third time...I understand that the crown is made this big intentionally, but maybe you went too far?
Also, I'm not an engineer, but from your design I see there's a possibility to have a thin metal bezel around the crystal, if the pressure-fitting will not work
