Finding this watch online, I chose it for its simplicity but uniqueness from the face. I sketched out the main elements and broke them up. Next, I took each of the simple shape sketches and created them in illustrator. Starting with these basic shapes first really helped motivate me and organize me. I labeled each of the groups and layers here so that adding detail would be easier. Next I added more color and started with some large area gradients (middle image that includes my reference). I then went in and created each of the areas of the face and personalized them, creating a main diamond and duplicating that. Adding the texture and the hilight areas was last, finishing off my watch.
