[WiP] Chrono HE-BC

I’m back from vacation and I’ve got new ideas.

A user here, who is always happy to help with advice and action, gave me the advice to draw chronographs.
This thought did not let go of me.
So I thought about a shape that combines classic design and new thinking.
That’s how I got back to my roots… vehicle design
One of GM’s most famous American designers designed this train.
This train has fascinated me since my childhood.

I’m far from finished, but you can already see how the way to the goal is.

It is very pretty, I like the fine gauges. My first thought was “for the tiny watch display they should be somewhat more bold or embossed deeper”, but I believe you will easily adjust that, once you start testing it.

As brilliant as we’ve come to expect from you my friend, looking forward to seeing how this one progresses :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for the kind words and tips.

I think I’m exaggerating again and leaving it.
Now comes the switchable interaction.
a simple digital display with the most important information…
then that’s enough.

I have very little - no experience with the stopwatch here.
I can’t get the digital view right.

I would like a simple digital view of the stopwatch.
MM:SS
The sec should change from 59 to 00.
Unfortunately, they continue to count for me.
Attached is a picture for clarification

Stylish watchface. Like the retro touch of the project. Can’t wait to see further development on this one.

Because there is no separate tag for it (despite the description example in docs suggesting the elapsed seconds were just integer number it has 3 decimal numbers and no leading zero), you would need to put something like this $(floor(#SWEM#)%60)<10?0:$(floor(#SWEM#)%60):$(floor(#SWES#)%60)<10?0:$(floor(#SWES#)%60) in the text field. No guarantee it will work on watches, as the mixture of conditionals and other characters tends to cause trouble. Safer would be to split the texts for each digit.

great… thank you

I tried it with single numbers.
I didn’t manage the first number of seconds.

edit

the code works fine on my fossil.
thanks

If I don’t find any bugs during the testing phase, I’ll consider this face complete.

tap the center to switch from analog to digital.
the stopwatch buttons only work in analogue mode.
the buttons for controlling the app only work in digital mode.

the app buttons are in 12 - 3 - 6 - 9 positions.

Looking very nice and clean. I saw the notification from Facer about your new face, was impatient to try it, but I’m still a free Facer, not premium yet.
After all it’s a successful project, congratulations to it!
