SINN 856 B-UHR is a so called Observer military watch, or Deck Watch. Made for locating and navigation, for coordinating procedures and for keeping to schedule. I think this watch looks so cool, so I decided to make a watch face of it. Personally I'm very happy with the results, so this watch face is now my favorite.

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.

The slightly ivory colored markers and minute hand makes this watchface really "glow" in the dark. I fiddled with the HSV filter to get the perfect "lume" built-in on this one.

Second hand shows battery level when dimmed. Tap below 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. You can also find a very discreet date field at 4 o'clock, or rather at 20 in the minutes ring.

The small dark icon above hour 6 is to show that this watch have magnetic field protection.

It's all about functionality, durability, readability, precision and reliability, and I think the SINN 856 B-UHR has it all.

Enjoy this watchface for the Watchmaker app!
