Laco DC-3 Pilot Watch Face

The Laco DC-3 Pilot Watch is a modern version of the old Flieger watches from the war. Laco was one of the original watchmaking companies of Fliegeruhr. It's basically the same watch as the Laco BELL X-1
I released earlier, but with a DC-3 Plane drawing placed above the hour 6.

I like the clean and sharp look of the DC-3, so I decided to make a watchface of it that would be as near the original as possible. I think I have succeeded with that.

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 at 30 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 the hands in a vector-based software, the rest I did completely in Watchmaker. Personally I think the watch faces gets sharper when doing them in Watchmaker than doing them in Photoshop.

Enjoy this watchface for the Watchmaker app!
