This face is sort of the prequal to the Starburst Contemporain series. This was a design that I didn’t have a vision for prior to starting beyond the goal of including partial open works, not just a tourbillon. I just started drawing some elements, and it unfolded in this way. At some point I accidently turned of the blue plate layer in Photoshop and was left with what became Starburst Contemporain. I actually and completely turned my attention to that one, but then came back to this later. As I continued to refine it and try to get a date indicator in, the open-worked design took a turn towards echoing the aesthetics of the Contemporain look for it’s final form. But still I finished this concept and it’s got it’s own character I like too. So I’m just calling this one Concept A.
There’s a subtle white glowing lume in dim mode, and battery indicator in the window between 9 and 12.
