My first two watchfaces: One modern, one vintage


(The GIF doesn’t render the batter level indicators properly.)

I wanted this to be sleek and modern… and blue. As well as the date, it also incorporates indicators for watch and phone battery levels. The indicators both have 100% at the top and 0% at the bottom, and so turn through 180° but in opposite directions. The rotation value for the watch battery indicator is calculated like this:


For the phone batter indicator it’s:


The value 1.8 is important: from 0% to 100% the indicator turns 180°, so each percentage point is represented by 1.8°.

Inspired by vintage pocket watches; this looks best on a round watchface. Incidentally, when creating watchfaces with Roman numerals, it’s usual for the 4 to be represented by IIII instead of IV. There are various theories as to why that should be.

The seconds dial was created as a separate graphic. I make all the graphics 960px square PNGs, with the design element itself centred within it. This makes it easy to position everything correctly: simply import the image, move it to where you want it, and then note its coordinates. Then, when you import the image for the second hand, simply copy those coordinates and it’s automatically in the right place.

Looks awesome, @rewboss!
