Thank you for your comment: indeed there are no tricky features... The crown needs to be recognized as my DesignNew thread? While I agree that watch designs can be stiff and be more bold instead of the just another Submariner thing... I definitely don't think I want watches to go bald, yeah.
Ironically this seems like the least bold of your designs, but it also looks the easiest one to produce as it has no particularly strange or difficult features.
The gear-like crown is a bit unrefined looking for the otherwise semi-dressy look, I think, but someone who wants something that looks classy at a distance with flavor up close should like it.
Hi thank you for your detailed commends they are appriciated...Referring to the title of the thread..(is this about watchdesign in common , or just to introduce your proposal)
Or better :what do different people feel when using the word design..
Over time I have seen plenty of shiny pictures, ambitious proposals and
- I hope you will not take it for bad -
unwearable artwork which perhaps could be built with lots of efforts ,
but which never will be wearable or usable in daily life.
Just for me and my position..
sketching something down once, making a visual proposal..
rendered or with pen and paper doesnt matter and letting it stand as it is,
is just effort , sometimes art - and very seldom it is an idea which can be thought about a second time.
Sketching something down is just FORM . In my eyes design is nothing which stands alone for itself as art does.
Design has a reason and an orientation. One will prior FORM the other one puts FUNCTIONALITY at first place.
But in any case both halves of the whole have to be brought together with some focus and orientatation to achieve an optimum solution for something which the design ist to be done for (ok this one in my eyes is rather industrial or product design)..
E.g. The dial may be an artwork itself but its always important that it tells the time, date or whatelse it is made for to fulfill its duty in the spec of the product it is designed for. And under conditions e.g. for a diver it has to be designed and optimized to be readable under water, and at low light conditions.
The same for every other part of the watch. And when everything comes together the whole thing must look as one piece and as just this one ist the wanted product.. Those are just my 5 Pence in .. just my opinion , please dont take it for an offence... but many "designs" shown here with the question for help on building a proto are quite far away from this point..
Regarding your proposals.. the big crown may cause some difficulties in manufacturing the mid part of the housing with the transition (casting would probably a way but relates to limited materials to be used for this..) ... and your logo will probably increase the price of the crown by factors.. (you have very fine lines on the logo and I would suggest to simplify it .. not to come into issues).
And think about.. a big crown on a dresser affects wearability and it is not necessary (e.g. to manipulate with gloves or under harsh conditions)
How are your experience in this: if I see your profile you must have the capability to actual create a watch...To bring one in production.. just to say you should dig into productikn technologies to get it or at least the parts manufactured economically.. e.g. the logo.. there is a posibility to manfacture the part in detail and precision the technology is called LIGA.. but the parts are just to be made from a few materials which may not be rigid or harmless (soft Gold or Nickle) .. and the process is just done by a hand full of labs over the world and it is extrordinary expensive..
Hero,I could do a lot , but have just little time. I do mechanics and engineering for a living but after a full day I prefer doing sports and other things than carrying work home or doing similar stuff..
Here is about what I mentioned regarding the Logo
I saw that impressive... Do you know how to assamble a watch? Like do you know the tolerance between the main part: mechanic and case that are thing I struggle with... I can let a case be printed in steel an assemble the mechanic in but have no clue about the tolerance between the parts..
If you keep to their rules you can check your 3d designs if it's possible to print in polished steel it's done with pouder.. 'Holthinrichs Watches' does this too...Normal prints (slm) will not satisfy you by surface quality nor tolerances.. means you will have to rework it completely.. for precision it would be easier to cut it once from stockmaterial..
