I recently downloaded the 3D software Blender and wanted to start modelling. I'm thinking of making some watch concepts, just for fun, and decided to start with the dial.
Now I have not gone through any concept drawing and have no background whatsoever in design, but just kind of came up with things as they came along.
To start, I just finished a pretty basic dial with some inspirations from Seiko and Citizen dials that I have seen, and a dash of "creative genius". Here's my first concept.
It's called Faucon because thats the French word for Falcon, which is my surname, and because everything sounds 10x fancier in French. I added the text lines "Oiseau de Proie", meaning "Bird of Prey" (like Falcons), and some generic "Mouvement Mécanique" text.
The bottom says "Petit a petit, l'oiseau fait son nid", French for "Little by little, the bird creates its nest".
I thought it was a fun phrase and quite like the idea of a subtle proverb at the bottom of the dial.
Please let me know your thoughts, I'd love to hear them (good or bad)!
