My newest release features an array of retrograde hands and jumping hours. For lack of a catchy title, it’s simple named for it’s complications I always enjoy making retrograde dials because the process of working out the math and laying it out with precision feels closer to watch making than a lot of what we do which is more graphical arts. I love that too of course, but this is a different kind of satisfaction. Similarly making wheels is always more satisfying to me than text layers, I don’t always bother unless there is a clear benefit, as in this case where I wanted a particular font but needed to adjust the dimensions of some of the numbers individually to fit the window, so here the hours are on a wheel. For the minutes dial and date dial I incorporated the starburst layout into the indicator itself by laying out each to correspond with the appropriate degrees. The seconds dial is a 30 second retrograde mostly just for fun, but it also frees up space for the power indicator. Finally I also added a moon phase because I felt it fit in nicely.
Enjoy yet another free one (#129)! and be sure to follow B Sharp here on Facer and on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bsharpwatches
