Hello Fellow Watchuseekers,

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! I was wondering if I can tap into your opinions once again. I am on the final stages of my watch and I am torn between a few fonts that I have for the watch. Can you please take a look and vote on which you feel looks the best with the casing?

Please look at just the fonts and disregard the color scheme, as that will change. I really appreciate your help and hope to have the watch produced and sold in the upcoming year!

Please Vote on 1, 2, or 3 - Any opinions other than voting would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Again,

Jason

I hope you don't consider it a thread crap when I say, for me, 'none of the above'. The first is a bit too...out there, though of the 3 it would be my choice if pushed to choose. The middle (2) and right are ...how do I put this... much to 'common', bog standard stuff. Hey, if that's what you're after GREAT, and if that's what your customers want EVEN BETTER...I, again this is one man's opinion, just think there must be something out there that works but stands out from the pack a little more. Which leads back to why I would pick the first, if I absolutely had to choose.

I chose 2. 1 is a little too out there, and 3 is too traditional for how modern the watch looks.

One would be my choice IF you restored the serifs. As is the numbers look as though someone took a paring knife to them. The other two fonts are just generic easy to read arabics with no style.

Great I will try your suggestions out and see how they look. In the mean time, please let me know what you think of these 3! You guys are awesome.....
John is totally right. add in the top of the 2, top of the 3, top of the 6 and the bottom of the 9 and I think that is your best choice. As is though, number 2 is the best. :-!

I really would prefer the thickness of #1 combined with the character font of #2 - so I had to vote #1.

I couldn't vote for any of them. Hands should all be solid. And either make it all numerals 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12, or just use markers/indices for the hour marks. Mixing it up affects readability. Second hand should be lumed or have a lume pip.
