Is there a consensus on a definition?

Stellas

1 Come in outrageous colours

2 have a thick clear coat; probably multi coats of laquer which give the dial a glassy look. Stellas look more lively because the thick clear coat reflects light more strongly. Shimmers. ..

3 Have print sitting on top of the clear coat. Print appears to be floating above the dial, again because of the thick clear coat that lifts the print off the dial surface.

4 print is done with thick viscous ink, which gives the print a 3D look.

All in all, Stellar look beau..ti..ful... because of the above. Love them!!!
