Rosy-fingered Dawn and the Yema Wristmaster

Homer got it right when he described the early hours of the morning, but he forgot to mention "rosy-fingered" Dawn habit of running interferences during photo sessions. I guess that they didn't have automatic watches 2800 years ago but it still doesn't excuse such an oversight from a poet of his caliber.

The Yema Wristmaster is an interesting watch to shoot because its boxed acrylic crystal is shaped in such a way that at some viewing angles it make it look as if the watch has a bezel. The same acrylic with its superior optical clarity also enable me to take some shots in situations where most of the glass and sapphire crystals would throw out too much reflections or end up in a mess of milky haze.

I also like the way that the unusual indices with their black accents gives a more 3D look to the dial. It's a very old fashioned dial with the crosshair and the longhand script, which is complemented very nicely by the ivory cream color of the background.

What I didn't expected was the play between the early morning sunshine and the highly polished hands which resulted with a vivid pink.

Lucky for me, a twist of the wrist and a dark coffee came to my rescue before a Catgirl or some other multicolored anime character would drop by to ruin my morning with their annoying squeaks.

It’s a beautiful thing. If it were a little smaller I’d snatch one myself … but I did gift one! Love the indexes.
