This is a 1 of 1 piece made for a client. I was given the desert/post-apocalyptic/Dune theme and free reign to create this watch. The client prefers green, so we decided on the green GA2100 as the base watch.
I wanted to create the rugged and technical aesthetic to align with the theme. I’ve scrolled through hundreds of photos for inspiration. And while Dune displays a more minimal and futuristic look, the post-apocalyptic Mad Max look consists of lots of complexity and multi-layers of hardware. I intended to find a happy medium—not overly complicated, but still exudes the heavy weathering feel.
The process was learning lots of weathering techniques; both for the outer case and the inner dial. I also added extra hardware, but not excessively, to beef up the watch.
I have broken the project down to the following modifications. Most of the mod processes are difficult to depict by words, so I plan to launch a series of tutorials and behind the scenes soon. You can visit the YouTube channel to subscribe
