However, to stay within a reasonable budget we will need to cap the total number of versions at three.
Based on feedback in the comments and elsewhere, we believe that the following three versions should appeal to the majority of backers’ tastes:
We’ll have one black watch with a dark glass watch face, one clear face version in steel and one steel version with a white opaque face. We’ve removed any conversion factors from the face of the design and added them to glass on the case back:

Before we finalize the survey, we would like to get your reaction. Our goal is to satisfy all our backers. If you don’t see a version that appeals to you, let me know and we’ll see what can be done.
We’ve also improved the turning mechanism to make it smoother and allow the rings to rotate closer together.
Our manufacturing partner has given us a production turn around estimate of 75 days. If we provide details on final numbers by early October, production should be complete by the end of December. This leaves us a contingency of 30+ days to meet our goal of shipping in February.
