Watch !

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by JPS, Dec 12, 2005.

  1. I should take pictures of every watch i make, but i never have time... Today, though, i took the time and shot this one !

    White gold lady's watch (one inch in diameter) with a "squeleton" movement, to wear as a pendant !

    Nikon D70 with Tamron SP90 - 1:500 @ f/27 - ISO 200 RAW

    Any comment, critic ?

    Cheers,
    J-P.

    Wow! You are very talented. I can't even put my own necklaces on. I can't imagine making something like that... AND doing such a great job!:wink:

    J-P, I used to live and work in Geneva (on Rue du Rhone) and well remember all the watch places. Your watch is really beautiful and the picture does it full justice. I think I am not alone in asking for some more showing your wares and your tools - it would be way cool if you would share.
     
  11. You make beautiful watches, that's for sure...Great job and great job on shooting the watch.
     
  12. Beautiful watch, and beautiful captute, J-P.

    I love watches, and would like to hear more about your watch making. Really love to have one like this, but I know it's very expensive.
     
  13. if a watchmaker has no time, Who does???? nyuk, could not resist.
    What exacting work, no wonder your photos are so good!

  14. Beautiful movement and well photographed.
     
  15. You're right ! (i should have THOUGHT before to write something like that :biggrin: !), but as TIME is my business, i sell -or try to- all the time i have, so there is no more left for me...:tongue: !

    Cheers,
    J-P.
     
  16. You make these? I'm very impressed! =D

    By the way, try the 85PC for watch photography. I did and my 60 micro retired...

  17. I would also like to see more watches you have made! Which company is yours?

    Awesome image!
     
  18. Hi ! I wish i had the cash to get myself a 85PC... for the time being, my old Tamron SP90 does it... even though i often dream about this 85 mm....:redface: !

    Cheers,
    J-P.
     
  19. Hi Brett ! Thanks for the kind words...

    I have no company: i work all alone in my workshop, making prototypes or unique watch-cases for some of the big companies, but mostly for "small" watchmakers who make unique and complicated pieces...

    Cheers,
    J-P.

    PS. Obviously, i can't show images of all the pieces i make, as they're not mine -or under my name-, but once in a while, i can do it, with the agrement of the customer, of course...
     
  20. I admire your line of work. A craftsperson that is also creative. And makes unique things from time to time.
