The Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 is a new watch from this year. I decided to do a high quality watch face of it. I really like the design, it looks like a diver watch but still very classic. I like that it doesn’t have a diver bezel, just a normal watch bezel. That way it looks more realistic on a smartwatch. I like the snowflake hands, the background, and the markers that glows beautifully in the dark. Even with the variable brightness set very well 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.
Because many people don’t like watchfaces without a date, I’ve added an optional date field by tapping 3. Even if the original watch doesn’t have that. I mean, we all have smartwatches so why not do what we can? And those who want to have it exactly as the original (like me) can still have that by tapping 3 again to hide it.

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 look 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.
