    A little resumee of my 23 years in watchmaking. Heavy photos.

    Hi there,
    Many of you guys know me and know what I am doing. But for the first time I take the opportunity to show a little bit more from my portfolio. These are maybe not even 0,5% of the Designs which I made during my 23 years in watchbusiness.
    Designs are made because of various reason:
    1. Designs for customers
    2. Designs made because there was nothing better to do
    3. Designs of my dreamwatches
    The market defines the designs. Yes true, but I always tried to keep it simple. My german designeducation didn't allow me to go for too fancy things. I rather rejected such projects.
    Some of the shown Designs you already saw as finished products. Others were cancelled because of various reasons whilst others just for the right time for it's resurrection.
    I hope you have as much fun looking at my designs as I had designing them.
    Cheers

    Ah, stuff I can only do in my silly watch designing dreams. Didn't know you were heavily involved with Stuckx. Good stuff!

    I can almost recognize your design philosophy now.

    Thank you Bombfish. I am trying my best.
    I am so much involved also to other brands, which I cannot disclose here.
    Stephan Trimbos of Stuckx and I are working really closely together. We are partner on Stuckx and some other projects. He is dutch and dutch people in general are easy to cope with.
    I feel that the Netherlands and Australia is catching up with in watchbusiness. So many startups from NZ and AUS and NL nowadays.

    I am not the romantic kind of watchmaker. I am more like a workhorse who simply functions. As much as I love designing and manufacturing watches, I hate wearing them. If I was be wearing watches, for sure I would be having a full set of watches of each model.

    Very cool DEPA.

    What software do you use for modeling and rendering?
    It seems like Keyshot, but I may be wrong.

    There is not only one Software which we are using. Depending on the task, you must use a whole list of Software. Basically we start with Coreldraw and Illustrator for the preliminary 2D renderings. Then we go ahead and make a 3D model on Solidworks together with the constuction, then we proceed modelling on Blender or 3ds Max and finally the rendering jobs are beeing done on a renderingmachine such as Keyshot or Vray. Depends on the requirements. If we need bumps or postproduction we use Photoshop

    Thank you for the info, do you also model the stitching?

    And if you don't mind, could you share a story of how you got started in the business?

    Awesome portfolio there! My favorite was the world timer; I think that is a gorgeous design.
