I have been playing with some designs albeit slowly while learning Rhino 3D package. I have a design theme worked out in my head but mine was based on a very industrial look. The more i look at it the more I see some cheap piece of tat that would sell for £20 except for a decent movement inside. Reason being the more you try to be big and bold the more it reminds me of the cheap end of market and also fashion watches. This leads me to the question: Is watch design all about the dial, hands and crown?
it seems there is little to change with the case itself bar a few tweaks with bezel and crown position etc. Is this because the most successful case designs are already all but done and it's the details that change?
I realise maybe there aren't answers to these questions more opinions but would be glad to hear yours?
On the note of my current design I am going to knock one up in aluminium in the lathe and see how it looks as I doubt my 3D skills are doing it any justice. I have a 3D printer on the way for faster prototyping and for playing with proportion.
Please discuss any contribution great fully received.
