Koa Wood & Silver Dial

An experiment I'm toying with is a Hawaiian Koa wood insert for the inner portion of a silver dial (with roman numerals) for a Ka La watch.

I think the words ("INDIVIDUAL DESIGN" at the top and "SWISS MOVEMENT" at the bottom) are not distinct enough, so I plan to must eliminate them on the next test insert. Also, the date window at 3 o'clock needs to be a bit smaller. And the koa insert needs to be about 0.5 mm smaller in diameter. Otherwise, I like the contrast and overall effect of the wood and the metallic dial together.

The quick and dirty mock-up below shows the koa insert on a silver dial and only the second hand disk (no minute or hour hands).
