    Strikes me as more “rendered” than “shopped”.

  2. Bozobub says:

    Why does it have to be fake?  I’ve seen quite a few “faceless” watches like this.

    I think I just found Waldo!

    No winding required.  It’s powered by the entrapped soul of a college student who disappeared while cycling through Europe not long ago.  It happened in the woods near that creepy watch maker’s house.

    shooped like Salt n Peppa?

  6. I can’t fathom why are people so many people willing to pay top dollar for a RubeGoldberg contraption, that can easily be replicated by an RC oscilator and four counters.

    there are at least two more of these… but I have no idea who made them, they are from as far back as 2009 tho.

  8. joseph zizys says:

    Pretty sure they where made by a studio called Seagullsfly from Rio, so it might be by Fabiano Feijó…

  9. joseph zizys says:

    Allright Cory, I will stop bothering you now, they are definitely by Seagulls Fly, for a 4WD magazine advert, in 2009, see

    So you can thank me for taking a little bit of magic out of the world in order to give credit to a now defunct creative company :)

    Am I the only one bothered by the placement of the knives and forks?

    Judging by the wallpaper-sized images, it looks more like a large-scale model rather than anything watch-sized:×2880.jpg

    But not nearly as authentically badass as a Dudley Masonic pocket watch.

  13. vermes says:

    I dislike stuff like this. They could have easily consulted a watchmaker or even an watch fan to make it look like a functional watch.

  14. Art says:

    I agree with Copperwatt, Sam and Rich.

    Yes….too many knives, no spoons, and it’s all on the WRONG SIDE of the plate.

    My guess?  Rendered by a youngster whose culinary experience is limited to drive up window meals :)

    That aside, the image is decently rendered.

    I resolve to used the term “watch gizzard” whenever possible.

    When I was a pro modelmaker in the mid 80′s this was the kind of thing that was frequently made by hand in giant scale for advertising photography.  Rather than someone at a cheap workstation PC noodling a 3d model, picture a roomful of people cutting and sanding by hand (it was even pre-lasercutting) to make this, say 18 inches in diameter.  And folks wonder where all the jobs went…

    pedantic comment to follow:

    Photoshopping is normally understood to mean digitally compositing more than one image.  This is pure digital illustration.

    PS I too like the term “watch gizzard” but the word “shooping” makes me want to spit.
