    Appleseed watch

    Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.


    Could you help me to find watches with design close to the right watch on the picture (this is screenshoot from Appleseed Saga Ex Machina movie)?

    Ideally it should be completely the same. Otherwise design should include such elements as:

    -same or close shape and layout of elements
    -numbers on clock-face should be done with extremely small type or no numbers at all
    -black and white colors, violet/dark blue and white are second best
    -glowing hands and marks
    -leather/resin/plastic strap, metal strap is very undesirable
    -mechanical clockwork (quartz is second best)


    I already read this thread:

    Good one, but I am looking for more simple stuff, without too many hands.


    P.S. Sorry for my English it’s my second language.

    I have looked on that link. The watches look really nice. I am not sure if they are a mock up. They look real, and expensive.

    Welcome.

    Just my two cents, you may want to consider trying to mod a watch.
    Take matters into your own hands, there are many companies that can help.

    It would make a good watch, looks good.

    Crooked date hate!!!

    Given the medium that these are presented I would have to guess that they are a mock up. However they have given particular attention to the detail in the watch. If whoever designed them isn't a watch designer they do have some aptitude for it.

    What types of companies could help? Maybe try to mod an existing watch with a new finish, face, bezel, hands, ect ect?

    I too was interested in this watch. The search continues. . .

    BTW it's an auto.

    Perpetual means Automatic; Datejust lets you adjust the date; A Superlative Chronometre is COSC certified; A Rolex President has an adjustable day and date

    The larger one on the left looks Zenith-esque to me.

    Being a CGI movie, I am impressed they took the effort to design plausible looking watches on the characters!

    The larger watch looks like a standard ETA 7750 based chronograph (with subdials at 6, 9, 12) with an aperture at the seconds hand (at 9 position) and date at 3. It appears to have an internal circular slide rule controlled by a crown at 8. The casing seems to be black PVD with Lume on the hands, indices and some markings.

    This watch appears to combine elements from Breitling (the slide rule), Bell & Ross (BR02, the internal bezel and black PVD case), Tag Heur (some dial design elements). Totally awesome watch!

    The other smaller one looks like a quartz job to me. Nothing specific comes to mind.
