When I first designed the Droplet pendant watch for Ladies, I thought about how when drawing round objects to make them look 3D, it often helps to include a reflection on the curved surface. On a long chain, it’s easy for the wearer to turn it around to see the time, yet still have a neat looking fashion accessory.
Based on comments from its first appearance on the blog, I have made a few revisions. There are now some subtle hour markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 to ease reading, and all time reading is clockwise.
The time telling is based on traditional analog placement. Inside larger markings for hours, outside smaller for 5 minute groups, and around the perimeter, 4 single minutes.
This pendant watch is meant for ladies of the future. It could also be adapted as a pocket watch for men, perhaps by giving it a thick masculine chain. Various color choices will appeal to many: WINE, WATER, HONEY, LOVE POTION, LIQUID LUCK. I also heard a suggestion for a black version called OIL.
This design stands out because it is telling time in an easy way, but appears to be a simple accessory.
