# I also tried a jump hour watch

Me and my “robot” friend spent a day or so on the formulas for this one. And no, we couldn’t get the animated flips to work. But I think it probably doesn’t need it.

Is it clear enough when it comes to seeing what the time is? I figured yellow-orange for all time related showing (Except for the moon and stars). And a white accent on the seconds hand.

It is supposed to be a novel version of my previous Quantum Dynamics watch face.

That is pretty neat! Time is readable, no problem. Installed it on my ticwatch. Looks great!

Thank you. It was quite difficult to make a hand follow your own minute scale which is like 1/3 slower than the #DWFMS#

That looks really cool, nice work

What formula did you want to know?

I can tell you that I originally wanted all the “wing” text elements to have this formula:

``````(((((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) >= 0 && (((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) <= 120) ? #DK# :
((((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) > 120 && (((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) < 240) ? (#DK#+2) :
((((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) >= 240 && (((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360) < 360) ? (#DK#+1) : 0)
``````

But there is a bug in Facer. Even though Facer correctly gets the value for the last conditionals true vaule (the #Dk#+1 one) It breaks the text element. If you put a static number there like 56 or 99 or something it works fine.

That is the reason those two wings have the weekday and month on them.

Intresting . Do you understand what the Bot is doing with #DNOW# . A version of #DWFHS# . But you know that .

Yes, I needed a rotation formula for a minute hand which is three times as slow as the normal one. It should not jump back to 0 when #DWFMS# resets so we had to calculate it from #DNOW#.

I am not using that formula in the watch face since now I want it to jump back.

Try this for a hand:

``````(((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2) - floor((#DNOW# / 60000) * 2 / 360) * 360)
``````

It is pretty clean, everyhing works as should, I like it.
What I do not understand is the “struggle” with formulas.
It seems simple (#DWFMS#/3-60) would do just fine.

but it does exactly that, it jumps to 0 when #DWFMS# rests (each whole hour), or am I missing something?

Que espetáculo…parabéns!!!

But it does, what I needed was a rotational formula which does the whole 360 degrees without any jumps to 0. Or am I missing something?

I do not get it. I can not see what did you need the slowed 360° rotation for?
Even then, why not simply (#DWFMS#/3+#DH#*120)?

I wanted to see your TAG/Formula for the Fly Wheel that slowly rotates/rocks and then speeds up please

I don’t think you can use the #DWFMS# at all in this particular case but I’m not an expert on formulas. When I tested my version of it it always jumped when #DWFMS# got to 0 degrees.

It needs to be three times as slow as a normal minute hand since the minute scale is three times smaller than on a normal watch.

The tourbillon? Sure

``````
((((#DWFSS#*5)%720<360)?(#DWFSS#*5)-102:102-(#DWFSS#*5))+(180*sin((#DWFSS#*6.28318531/5))*(1-((#DWFSS#*5)%720/720))))

Thank you very much, everyone here knows I’m no good at the math, I’ll experiment with that later thanks

@juni00 I just played around a little with your formula and this is what I did thanks -

I think #2 works better though -

Cool

I remember AI specified that one of the numbers defines the speed of it, and another the number of rotations when he made it for me but I can’t remember which they were.
