Amateur watch design

In my free time sometimes I like designing and modeling watch concepts in Blender. Here is the latest one - my take on an integrated sports watch. What do you think? Like it? Hate it? Meh? If it's to be made, would anyone want to actually wear one?

I鈥檇 wear it - send it over to TER if you ever make it and we鈥檇 review it for you

I'd like to see more brushed finishing- its a bit too shiny for my taste. Love the dial texture.

Yeah, I see what you mean. This angle in particular has too much contrast. Here is the front view. Slightly better in this regard IMO. Will play around with it some more. Thanks!

It looks great man honestly. Love the hour markers, the baton hands. Also really like the 2 small stripes on the second hand, those are really cool! Quite distinctive and definitely something I'd consider wearing. Looking forward to seeing more of your designs 馃榾

I think it looks really good. I really like the flat sides on the otherwise round bezel. The aesthetic appeal of a watch is probably my most important purchase criteria, but several other factors come into play as well. I like the design enough to consider buying depending on movement, fit & finish, etc.

That's really nice! It sort of reminds me of the Citizen series 8 automatics.

Very nice 馃憣馃徎

The 830 model. Yeah I can see it.

Biggest issue for me is the case and bracelet seem to be talking two different languages.

Really loving the sheered-off-circle bezel though. If 楼ou could work that in as a central motif in the design of the bracelet 楼ou鈥檇 really have a contender here.

How many facets are on this thing?!? In all seriousness, I don't mind this.

Without wanting to look too far ahead, if you had to build watch #2, what would be the distinguishing characteristics of this design, that would carry over? (eg for Cartier, it's the Roman numeral dial, for GS, its the textured dials, case finishing, Spring Drive)
