Being a watch lover for for many, many years, it’s been a dream of mine to create my own piece, with a deep meaning to it. I’d love to have your thoughts on the design I got to. I intend to create two watches – one called Alyss (chronograph), one called Blake (classic) - WIP.
I have not yet looked into colors that much for both the dial and the leather band, so if you have any suggestion I’d love to hear more about it, I’d be happy to try them out! (Although I was thinking about Blue/RosishGold, Black/Gold, Gunmetal grey or more classic White/Black, I would also love a red touch somewhere)
It is my first watch design and I expect criticism, do not hold back!
You can find the main specifications at the end of the thread
The ETA-7753, which will be showcased on the back of the watch
The name of the watches comes from a story I wrote a few month ago “Alyss & Blake” which was a short, cute story about daring to live our own stories to make the best out of life. Here is a recap, for the curious:
Our hero is an average man, the classic middle-management type. Dragged to a Christmas party he didn’t really want to go to by his friends.
Standing on the edge of the room by the Champagne, he spots a girl on the balcony talking with her friends. Mysterious and beautiful. His antithesis.
Their eyes cross for a moment. He excuses himself and approaches the stairs but is stopped by a security guard. Looking back up at her, he thinks, and realises he needs to do something....
Throughout the story we see his various attempts to reach her in humorous ways. Unsuccessfully.
Desperate, he sees the security guard checking someone else and makes a run for it. Up the stairs getting closer and closer. But he trips.
Holding for a moment to build tension. We open our eyes and the woman is above him, offering to help him up.
Embarrassed but relieved, he stands up and they laugh it off. He introduces himself and the story takes an end.
Mains specs for the watch:
Glass: Sapphire (both sides)
Case material: Stainless Steel 316L
Band: Italian genuine leather
You can help me answering these:
Is it too busy ?
Is it too classic (lack of originality) ?
Is it ugly ?
What would you change if it was yours ?
Should I re-draw the whole thing differently ?
What coulors would best fit with such design ?
What do you think about the hands ?
Thanks A LOT for reading me, this is a very exciting project, but also quite difficult, which is why i am coming to you guys !
