Tudor North Flag Watch Face

The North Flag from Tudor embodies the spirit of the watch that inspired it, a model worn by the British North Greenland Expedition in 1952. In this watchface I have tried to transfer that spirit into a smartwatch. No fake bezels, no fake lume or artificial chronos. Just trying to do a watch face that looks as the original as much as possible on a smartwatch that already has built-in "lume", bezels and a chronograph.

I like the way Tudor has made a watch that doesn't look like another Rolex. The North Flag has its own soul. I like the simplicity it has but still have a lot of stuff going on. For example a date window and a power disc that turns down the less battery power the watch has. I think that works quite good on my watchface too.

I also like the yellow details it has. The yellow second hand and small yellow markers for example. And of course the yellow power marker.

Tudors movement is beating to a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour, and I have given my watchface the exact same movement.

On this watchface i also added an automatic decrease of brightness after sunset. It decreases the brightness with 30%. And get to normal brightness again at sunrise.

But of course I added variable brightness that I prefer over Lume. Because smartwatches already has "lume" built-in. Setting the brightness level between 5-7 works great in low light environments.This variable brightness you can use together with the automated too if you like. Both works simultaneously.

Second hand shows battery level when dimmed. Tap below 6 to choose between 7 different brightness levels. I added that placement very low on the display to minimize the risk of adding smudge and dirt on the screen.

I drew and sketched all the assets in a vector-based software to get the sharpness I want, the rest I did completely in Watchmaker. Personally I think watch faces gets sharper when assembling them in Watchmaker than doing the whole face in Photoshop or other software, and then import it into Watchmaker.

Enjoy this watchface for the Watchmaker app!
And let me see some photos of it on your wrist :)
