This is, hands down, THE most impressive WIP thread I’ve ever come across.
 
You’re very first sentence “This started as a simple box modelling project on a lazy afternoon and has evolved into a Watch” seemed like such a ho-hum intro to yet another unremarkable thread here, but it now reminds me of the spinster-looking librarian taking off her glasses and throwing her hair back to become a sultry love goddess.  grin
 
I certainly hope you’re working in this field, because I rate this as “professional” work.

Wow thanks for the kind words. Its interesting what happens when you have a community like this behind you.
Most users look at Hexagon as a modeling program, however like most other modeling programs this one has the abilty to do layouts and preliminary rendering. Coupled with my upcoming H2O (Hexagon to Octane plugin) rendering will be a welcome addition.

Octane, I have heard mention of this before where would I find it and is it opensource or freeware?

Here is the watch fitted to Genesis. Will check in DS if it works with morphs.

Thanks, here is quick test on Genesis wrist. May have to reduce the watch body size and add an extra link to take up the space.
The watch scaled very well with most of the genesis morphs, only freak3 extreme and Gorilla had an issue where it sunk slightly into the wrist.

Here it is with MEC4D hair added for quick test. Interesting how the hair blended under the watch, Cat did a great job with it.

Got an issue with the hands, for some reason when rotated they now cut into the face. I dont remember this happening during the building.
So this has delayed the giveaway if we want to adjust the time by more than the upper part of the watch.

Well you already know how much I like the way this is coming out, but that last gold render is something; makes a good promo image.  cool smirk
