A new design based on orbiting clock dials and moon images.
The dials and moon images orbit in a clockwise direction once every 24hrs.
The moon images also orbit in the opposite direction ( 180 deg per month ) to show the moon phase.
The outer ring shows the time in 24hr format
The date is shown by large central digits
The main clock dial shows the time in 12hr format and the battery charge is given by the lower dial.
The secondary dial has:
equation of time dial ( upper middle )
steps dial ( lower middle )
sunrise indicator hand ( left pointing arrow, 24hr time scale )
sunset indicator hand ( right pointing arrow )
current local time in 24hr format ( small blue V indicator )
Solar time ( Sun hand )
Moon hand showing position in orbit relative to sun ( solar time )
The second moon image comes from “The Great Moon Hoax” newspaper reports from 1835
I hope you like it …
The background image is of the “Southern Beehive Cluster” taken from my backyard.
Great watch face!!
Thanks guys, much appreciated
Great design !
… and nice view from you backyard
Thankyou very much
My main hobby for the past few years has been astro photography but the weather has been terrible here over summer so designing watch faces has nicely filled the gap since I got my watch for Christmas.
Below is my favourite image from around this time last year; I have been trying to think of how best to use it with a watch design …
Wow! Great photo!!
In case anyone is interested, I have more at
http://flickr.com/photos/mike-oday/ and most images also have notes on how they were taken.
This one has a total exposure time of over 12 hours and is also an HDR image; it has to be as the dynamic range, between the the bright central star Eta Carinae and the darker parts of the nebula, is nearing 30bits from memory.
I will have a look. I love deep space and nebula pictures. I already have a lot of hubble pics an my Harddisk.
My favourite is the horsehead nebula.
That was one of my first, back in 2014 …
I might have another go later this year - I am much further up the learning curve now and I should be able to improve upon it.
You should make a space watch face from some of these pictures.
Good idea - I’ll have to think about it.
Waaaaow, I’m starry-eyed ! Love your pictures, for sure you have a talent for that
My favourite one is your waxing moon on flickr. Amazing texture :
Thanks, that is very kind of you! And yes, the low angle of the sun really does bring out the texture on the surface.
Great Job, well deserved!
