    What are your opinions and views on this combination? I have finished a few dials...however...due to thickness, mechanical movements will have to be specially made as a custom order. Production times for these "high hand" movement are atleast 6 months or more. There is a Ronda movement in stock...

    I'll just come out with it and say that although I have certainly admired, especially some vintage chronographs over the years, chronographs generally just don't appeal to me. Fair enough, as I expect applies for many, I would be highly unlikely to (frequently) use any of the specific...
  3. Affordable watches
    Thanks to the Fratello write-up I clocked the Aevig Thule. Since the TV-shape case is unusual, I hung around a little longer to appreciate what they created. The short of it: I quite like it. The case shape nicely mirrors the rehaut of the chapter ring towards the dial. The sinking of the...

    The launch of the distinctive looking Formex Field, has brought me back to an old question. The Formex, as should be expected for the price, is driven by an automatic movement. There are more affordable and traditional options out there, some with real heritage (e.g. Hamilton) and, yes, these...

    Hello all, While I don't wear ladies' watches myself, I have an interest in original designs regardless of who the watches are marketed for. In this segment, the Teuntonia IV Lady from Muhle stands out with a really nicely weighted, graphic, geometric, and modest dial, which I find especially...

    Reading up on a few recent watch releases today, I came across the Delft Watch Works' Oostpoort design discussed by Thor Svaboe on Oracle of Time. He described the flanks of the case of the watch as 'scalloped'. These rounded cut-outs create a most delightful case profile from the side (see...

    I really enjoy the minimalistic design of the Braun AW10 and the Laco Absolute. However i find the Brauns quality rather low and would love an automatic or handwind (maybe even with display caseback) instead of the Lacos quartz movement. Is there a special name for this type of lug/case...

    Hi, so few weeks ago a watch dial design came up in my head while dreaming. After waking up, I can't help but to crave for a custom watch that incorporates my design. While some might say do it yourself, I don't know a thing about watchmaking so I don't feel confident enough. I would just...
  9. Watch Concepts & Designs
    Hello everyone, I'm designing a few watch models that are based on polished gemstones. I'd love to get your general feedback, but I'm also struggling with one specific choice. Obviously, the most prominent feature on each watch is the dial (which is an actual macro shot of an agate). I'm...

    Hi, I saw a Cartier Extra Flat the other day. I was struck by how the dial looked to be really pressed up against the crystal. It looked stunningly good. I saw the same effect on an FP Journe watch on Instagram. As a result, the watch looks like it is full of watch, as it were. I am wondering...
  11. Watch Concepts & Designs
    hi! I'm just starting my new brand with 150 pcs watches. I suffer from anxiety and I can't stop worrying about if Patek could sue me for this design? Like the bezel form? I hope someone can help me or give a little advise! Thank you.

    Hi everyone, I just noticed that so many brands have these small flaws in their watch design - flaws that could be easily fixed, but aren't for stylistic or other reasons. Examples are: Nomos - overly long lugs Rolex - excessive marketing copy on the dial ("Superlative Chronometer Officially...

    Hey all. I have been wondering about the overall look of watches lately and maybe it's just me and my lack of knowledge in watches. But I honestly feel like most brands that i know of: Rolex, Tissot, TAG Heuer, Patek and so on are doing the “same thing”. Of Course there are differences in dial...

  15. Watch Concepts & Designs
    I am designing a case that I had in mind. The project takes more than 5 years. He was asleep several times and every now and then he made a little progress. As I said several times here, mechanics are not my thing, even though I have many machines. Various lathes, milling machines (a 4-axis...

    I have finally completed my first prototype dial after 6 months of hard work. The 36mm G.I/S General Issue Series. This vintage inspired watch take its design from 3 different vintage dirty dozen watch designs. With an aftermarket modified bezel case and a dial that is handmade and lacquered...
  17. Russian watches
    Not sure if there is much interest for this here, but after taking a look at some of the cool watch and dial designs in the 2018 project watch thread I fired up Photoshop and started messing around. Hopefully there are some other members who also enjoy this. Feel free to post anything you've...

    I'm a graphic designer and a watch enthusiast. A uniting element between these two things for me is typography. (the use of type). I love watch design that uses type exceptionally well... great choice of typeface, elegant logo, artful mixing of different typefaces on the same dial/bezel...
