Some part of the animation are really nice, but with improved DOF and improved shading a bit in some areas that would be a kickass promo, also didn't like the intro text that appeared with those lensflares, sans-serif font that fade-in/fade-out with the scale animated a bit, would work better(something more Swiss:)) my two cents anyway.

Really good!:)

Thanks guys,

I'll pass the message,
Oh by the way, it is a promo of a real watch.
He actually help designed it too.

I really like the design too, the only issue is that the price range is around 8000-12000 Euros I think.

That's cool!


8000-12000 Euros

Yikes!At this price range I wouldn't expect a rubber strap! But at the some time with ''proper'' strap the price would be higher.:)

Also, adding a DOF changing from distance to near at some point would be quite nice as well.:d I'm a sucker for this type of videos.:D

I was wondering, could physics be used to make a working watch and gears?

I actually can't wear watches with metal watchbands due to the irritation they cause, so I would imagine that there are other folks like me who appreciate fine watches but would need a band that's not metal.

I agree safetyman,
I like leather watchband, but it goes bad after a year or so.. and metal
is not confortable I think and hard to adjust.
so I usually like rubber watchand watches.

but doesn't matter since I can't afford that watch anyway :)

I like the way you think.

With all the jittering going on I could imagine that it would be always late anyway....or going backwards from time to time.:)

I'm not fond with the flying camera animation; some cuts could be more cinematic. The render is good but too CG for my taste, nice use of anisotropic materials. I know this is a tough job, we're working right now on some Nivada commercials and getting the correct look is hard.
