I created watch by blending different types of watches. I started off by using one of my watches to inspire me.
I sketched various hands mainly. I looked at many references deciding if I wanted to keep the original hands on the watch. I focused a lot on the chain and thought how to make it realistic.
I struggled with many elements that you can see on my rough draft. I could not get the face of the watch to blend and I could not make the chain realistic. I also needed to make the colors more realistic by brightening up the gold and dimming the blue.
I got some new inspiration and started incorporating that into my design. I decided to keep the blue and gold color.
I combined several ideas from the two watches together to make my watch. The ticks, gold color, lighting, and dial are from the first watch. The band and hands are from the second watch.
