I want to introduce you the project I'm currently working on. It's called Gnomon. Me and my friends found a lot of inspiration in ancient time tellers, like sun dials, nocturnals and other different interesting tools and decided to try to turn it into a wristwatch. So here it is. We've chosen a single hand format since it looks the most authentic way to keep up with the concept. The single hand refers to the gnomon of ancient Roman sun dials as well as overall design as well as to a shadow it casts. The dial has two layers - outer with hour Roman markings referring to the sun dial's surface and the inner which is made of an artificially worn out steel with a unique texture. It's protected by the domed crystal from the front and by the tranparent back lid from the back. The backlid also has the zodiac engraving with signs corresponding to the Roman indexes on the dial. We're also going to complete the watch with Italian hand made leather straps.
Plese, share your thoughts on my projects. Do you like it? Do you think we're doing a good job and should proceed with it? Below are the photos of the actual prototypes so you can judge the product, not the concept.
