I tried to recreate a pocketwatch described in the first Harry Potter book:
“It was a very odd watch. It had twelve hands but no numbers; instead, little planets were moving around the edge.”
I wanted all 12 hands to move on their own, each one showing something else. The challange was finding 12 distict things for the hands to do.
To make the use easier, I made the hands showing the time be from the same set.
Also, I tried to pick hands, that somehow hint to the use, like the crescent Moon showing the Month, the stars on both sides showing the day etc.
I admit, it’s style over use, like pretty much every watchface I’ve made so far
