Chris Alexander - The Dial Artist

Postby Racer-X » August 12th 2018, 7:02am

"Chris Alexander, also known as Creo Design, is a professional artist and designer who has worked across multiple media, with a focus for watch dial art.

Hi Chris, what’s your daily watch and why?
An Omega Speedmaster Pro 3570.50. This watch means an awful lot to me even though it has only been in my possession for about three months. The story goes way back to when I was around 4-5 years old and spending time with my late father. He was a qualified astrophysicist and taught me all he knew about space. And the clearest and fondest memory I have of him was spending hours looking at the moon and hearing about all the facts and statistics. My father was also a keen horologist and collected several clocks and tinkered away with them in his spare time.

Fast-forward 30 years, and I found myself falling in love with watches all over again while painting them. My appreciation for horology was of a keen outsider — someone who admires them in a store window but never purchased. So spending a lot of money on a watch just didn’t make sense to me until I started working on them. Then it all made sense, and I had to get a Moonwatch. It is all to do with the moon and my connection with my father. Being the moon watch has a deeper meaning for me, and brings me closer to the memory of my father. Adding my custom style to the watch is a way of sharing what I do with the memory of my father, so every time I look at my watch I think of us."

What the fuck has this baboon with a paintbrush done to that ref.16030?!

Unbelievably, indisputably and revoltingly ghey.

Those dials look like a unicorn sneezed on them.
Is it safe?

I bet that one day he accidently spray painted his wrist and someone he met thereafter commented on how cool his watch looked...

...or he had a overspray problem while airbrushing his action figures.
