Watches & Pencils #12 - Usage of Color in WatchesBefore we enter the next story about color I'd like to say something in regards to the past amount of Watches & Pencils on Fratello Watches. It all started pretty small having a quick sketch and a few lines (look at the earliest post concerning the 'Bullhead' here). fake rolex Following the launch W&P quickly evolved with a feature with long intense stories accompanied by complex artwork. The 'Sandwich'-post or even the previous post with regards to the 'Submariner' for example. To help keep focus, quality and give the cartoons and stories a persons vision they deserve, we've made a decision to separation the two 'types' of content. Expect one cartoon by incorporating lines and another longer story / review with photos any further. Having said that, let's move on towards the watch stuff.Colorful TheoryWhen speaking about replica watches there can be the key reason why a certain color is employed, as an example (in random order):To symbolize an emotion (e.g. blue stands for intelligence). This place is tough because every color symbolizes good and bad emotions (e.g. blue also stands for unfriendliness).To highlight important details and optimize legibility (e.g. bright yellow tip to highlight no more the onyx black seconds hand) buy sports watches .Because elements/logo's forces the designer to add certain colors (e.g. replica rolex careers watches the colors white, blue and red to produce the RAF-logo).To develop a distinctive identity and nice the way they look.Certainly, these reasons will also be combined in a unitary element. When combining, elements usually get stronger. They become distinctively and legible by way of example. A pleasant example may be the famous Doxa dial. After several underwater-tests salamander orange seemed one of the most legible color and in addition it created a very recognizable identity for Doxa.Vibrant Yachting TimersYou could also claim that some watch-groups are usually more colorful than these. Sports replica watches tend to be colorful than dress replica watches by way of example. That's a door. In case we sub-categorize sports replica watches there's an overall multi-color winner in my view: regatta replica watches. Particularly: non-digital/quartz replica watches with yachting functions. Mainly the ones with the 1970's. Usually together with the rich and colorful palette of blue, red, white and orange tones to spotlight the countdown functions. Form functional reason, they convey a vibrant unique topping to your dial, that i appreciate. For example examples: Heuer Regatta (134.601) and also the famous Skipper (11063V), the Yema Yachtingraf Croisiere along with the newer Alpina Yacht Timer (AL-880LBG4V6). Although I believe that those yacht related replica watches are the most colorful generally speaking, recent releases at SIHH2016 weakened this thesis a tad. Even as we probably are very mindful by now Audemars Piguet launched a 'Royal' rainbow:With this addition several splashy colors were added by Audemars Piguet (browse the recent review by Robert-Jan). Aside from the discussion if you (dis)like those colors, they are mainly applied to create character. Not to ever optimize contrast or legibility normally. I want to make an effort to explain vid much more.Color Contrast RatioThere are multiple approaches to measure/analyze color contrast, but let's keep things simple. (static) contrast basically is often a comparison/number to define the luminosity ratio between two colors (1:100 with black and white for example). While the dark blue kind of the revolutionary APROO has a pleasant ratio, once i study the yellow and orange variant I recieve a disappointing score with regards to contrast ratio (compared to the white/silver colored indexes). Less than practical if you wish to go diving ?But, so what?Not probably the most optimal contrast ratio for just a dive watch (white : yellow), but it looks nice though (reference number: 26703ST.OO.A051CA.01)ConclusionAlthough I truly do just like the new color variations, this is the nice example in which the color produces a character, but as well weakens one other reason to feature a color: functional legibility. Let's end by incorporating inquiries to think about:Legibility above characteristics or characteristics above legibility?What's your favorite 'rainbow' watch?Is readability today an important factor on expensive dive replica watches while almost 100% in the buyers won't use it for diving?Appreciate your watching/reading and do not hesitate to leave your comment belowA nice demonstration of combining two good reasons to add color: character and legibility (Edox Hydro-Sub - 80301-3NBU-NBU) replica breitling navitimer white watches
