Most of my still life's hint at, or tell a story. This is more about natural textures and form.
Beautiful image, looks a tad shabby chic!!. I love all types of watches and clocks...Len
Swiss Made equals well made ! A lovely image - would love to know its history and travels
This is a stunning image. The old, rusted watch, isolated on black. Very dramatic. Ditto Herman's wonderings.
Cracking shot this, absolutely ......
A speculative image, so looking forward to putting it into the bigbad world.
This ones had some hard wear - is the glass missing or just removed for the photo? I also surmise you've taken the innards/gears out and placed them on the front of the watch - I think you must have been one of those kids that took watches apart? I did that you my grandfather's pocket watch when I was 6 - he wasn't too happy.
It's the details and textures that appeal here, as well as the apparent age of the pocket watch.
Not sure on the history of the watch. The company was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds same place as Rolex and many others. I've never had the glass and the watch parts are actually from a bag of bits as I've never managed to un-seize the back.
Cheers guys and to Shane for the GEA
A superb capture of this old watch. Plenty of detail and a lovely texture
Love it and would look great on a canvas, the textures are fantastic. I love watches - so big click.
An accurate timepiece Keith
Looked at this again and... or as Year 5 say de de der... Goddam Michael Goves! Why is the hour hand not on four? You see I'm a sucker for mysteries and murders etc. Call me the Miss Marple of Ephoto but is there a link or thread I've missed?!!!!! Or just a broken watch...Much...
It will sell well methinks.
Love the arrangement of the 'bits',fab textures.Well lit ...a couple of lighter scuff marks on the bg though Son,careful when you print it.
Although simple I could look at this for ages & certainly hang it on the wall in a nice frame.

Janet doesn't need an eye test, had to look at 200% to see them
Echo all Janet says tho.
No scuff marks at this end in print or on screen, in fact I had to lift the levels until the watch almost disappeared until a couple of paper dust marks appear.
quality but rusty around the edges !!! ,bit like me .looks great Keith
About 23 minutes past on the black ( I wouldn't have noticed them had Janet not commented)
See them now but had to raise the screen brightness. They haven't appeared on print thankfully.
This is a beauty and well deserving of the GEA
