Oris Big Crown D.26 286 HB-RAG Limited Edition Watch Face

This is the new Oris Big Crown D.26 286 HB-RAG Limited Edition. The D.26 was a training aircraft used by the Swiss Air Force between 1931 and 1948. So this is a pilot watch. It looks very retro in a nice way. And I really like the date hand! So you have four hands on this watchface. One that shows the date around the date ring. The second hand shows battery life in dim mode. And this watchface looks really good in low light environments with the brightness set very low.

The markers on the watchface glows beautifully in the dark. Even with the variable brightness set very low.

This watch face is very good for the battery life too, you can easily have brightness level 2 or 3 during the whole day. And 5-6 during the evening. At least here in Europe this time of year. 

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.

Setting the brightness level between 5-7 works great in low light environments. This variable brightness can you use together with the automated too if you like. Both works simultaneously.

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 draw and sketch the hands and assets in a vector-based software to get the sharpness I want, the rest I do completely in Watchmaker for Android and iOS.

My goal is to make watchfaces that looks good and realistic on a smartwatch. Therefore I don't do bezels because smartwatches already has bezels, and I don't do Lume because it's not necessary on a smartwatch. At the moment I don't do Chronographs either, but that can change in the future.

Enjoy this watchface for the Watchmaker app for both Android and iOS! All my watchfaces works with Android Wear and Tizen (Samsung Gear) watches.

And now let me see some photos of it on your wrist :)
