RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design ideas is always coming after some deep research is done before first sketch is draw on the paper. We dived into last five years of men's fashion watches and looking for most popular categories in the general public. There was selected four categories or styles for the data collection. Dive (Marine) style, Aviator style, Dress style and Racing style watches. For this research we implemented most popular tools as Watch blogs, Watch magazines, FB Watch groups, Watch reviewers and You tubers. On the end of this research there was only single result. The men's watches number one is Dive (Marine) style. This has significant impact on design process. The goal has been set to achieve creation of unique design of marine style watches where implementation of elements from this category are crucial. The project started with inspiration to use the nautical map for the dial texture with two navy colors light blue for background and dark navy blue for the numbers and nautical chart. During design process was decided to add extra dial with marine teak deck texture where two models was created in one instant. We tested the prototypes by wearing them using group of selected people and collected the feedback about the quality and design. After few details adjustments the response exceeded our expectation.

CHALLENGE:
During design development process we encountered small challenge how to implement luminescent paint for the hour indices, hour and minute hands. This was planed advance and we selected blue luminescent paint BGW9. The hour indices are combined with top screw and triangular wedge shape and to just simply paint them on the top doesn't produce desirable outcome from the design perspective and very poor effect. The same issue applied for the hour and minute hands. To solve this challenge it has been decided to use thick dark blue navy color line in the middle of indices and hands. After we can apply luminescent paint on both sides of this line using shape of the indices and hands contour. This technique has very positive impact on final design of the dial. Also during night mode the shape of luminescent paint has very creative effect. There was one small issue during production process with the tourbillon movement holder - plastic ring. This holder wasn't supply by movement factory and we had to search for alternative from the hundreds of different kind of movement holders. It took some time and even we find one for our movement its still needs some small adjustment. We overcome this small issues very effectively and in very short time.
