Full Gold and Bicolor Omega Speedmaster '57 Caliber 9301 And 9300
Would Batman wear this watch? Maybe while polishing up the Batmobile. Not really something for Bruce Wayne to be seen in on more pedestrian outings. I heard Tiret say something interesting about the watches. They don't want someone thinking about wanting to buy the watch. They would prefer someone get it on an impulse. Wow, way to stand by the "lasting value" of your products. Guess I'll find one of these while waiting to checkout at the super market. "I've been wanting one of these..."
This need involved two things. First, making a highly legible dial that could be easily read in a glance. And second, having a high quality lume that would stay readable all night long. The first issue wasn't so much of a technological issue, as it was a design effort, mixing and matching the right style hands and numerals, with the right sizes. After living with the Red Cell watch, I must admit that like magic, the watch is quite quick to be read. There are thousands of dials designs out there. Some much more easy to read than others. Not only is the Red Cell watches among the cooler looking dials, but it gives you the information you need at a quick glance. Just as simple as that. Each hour has a thick dedicated marker, and there are smaller markers for each minute. The hands are long and thick enough. I am curious as to what the watch would be like having a different style of hour and minute hand on the the dial, but that is just curiosity - the watch dial is good as it is. The seconds hand is in red, plus there is a Rolex Explorer II style GMT hand in red. Each hand is covered in a rich amount of lume. The dial has a curved chapter ring with the GMT hours on it for easy reading. Plus, the minutes are counter out in five minute increments on the steel bezel. The dial also has a nicely framed date window.
