One for Mother’s Day… or any day!
A Flower is a Lovesome Thing
This is the title of a gorgeous Billy Strayhorn composition, and it seemed to me an appropriate name for this watch face.
The white flower petal is the hour hand. Watch as the flower spreads open as the day advances, and then closes again into the evening. The sun indicates the minutes. I tried to imagine and create the flower as something I believe could be realistically achieved as a mechanical complication.
Usually I’d be tempted to stick the date on there somewhere, but I think the design is most effective without it. But this is another one I’ll certainly develop further with Hybrid Mode and multiple themes if I have the chance later.
btw, the dial plate is supposed to be abalone, hopefully it doesn’t require too much squinting or drinking to see it as such Everything as always is drawn entirely from scratch in photoshop.
lastly, thanks to @lucky.andrei for some speedy help converting my lua script to Facer expressions so I could get the flower complication working!
