Would anyone be interested in making this beautiful Blancpain?
 
A unique timepiece for an amazing cause!

Blancpain is renewing its support for the Only Watch charity auction by presenting an exceptional and indeed unique version of its Villeret Traditional Chinese Calendar. Standing firmly alongside the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy (AMM) for almost 15 years, Blancpain is proud to be taking part in this 6th edition of Only Watch.

Was in London the other day and noticed that they upgraded Big Ben to use Android Wear and installed Watchmaker on it.

Thanks +JC Dalisay​ for the this mad face.

I really love the hands on the Ball Trainmaster Roman NM1058D, so I thought I'd try asking again.

I recently saw +Hassoun MOKHTAR​​​​​​​​​​​​​ do an awesome job on a Glashutte that looked very similar to this one (https://plus.google.com/109525599654630204364/posts/gQtYzipohnn). So Hassoun, would you be interested in making this?

Charging in the office.
I just noticed that it fits quite nicely.
(Not that I need to, since I've never run out of juice during the day, but I just happened to have an orb charger in the office.)

What's the watch icon at 12 o'clock mean?

It wasn't there after I upgraded to 5.1.1 this morning. But once it appeared, my tilt to wake stopped working. After restarting the watch, that watch icon disappeared, and tilt to wake is working again. Bugs, I assume.

Watch face of the day: Tag Monaco from +Nite Owl​​​. And as I've mentioned before, it goes well with my new polo. Thank you Nite Owl.

Can't do a display as well as +Bramante Perkasa​​​. But at least I think my matching shirt is not bad. :D

+Jens Graikowski​​​​ Is it possible or would you consider shortening the community/topic name? It's probably +Google+​ design fault, but I can't see the category name in the title of each post. It just says "Watchmaker - Beautiful Watches for An..." It would be nicer if it were e.g. "Watchmaker > Round Watch Faces".

I see. Thanks for clarifying +Spencer Petersen​​​! That's poor design on +Google+​'s part IMO.

+Frank Dufaux​ Yeah I saw that. I would've lost the bet. Unpredictable.

Many have questioned whether we need smartwatches and asked what would the single most important feature of a smartwatch be that would cause it to be a trend like the smartphone? Since the Moto 360 came out, I'd say the answer is clearly the ability to use customisable watch faces. The kings (and queens) of smartwatches would have classic good looks ranging from sporty Casio G-Shock to classy Rolex, have a 400+ dpi full screen (multi-layered if possible), no flat tire, animations at 60+ fps, and battery power to last a day with lots of screen-on time. Sound, waterproof, ambient light sensor, health monitor, and device integration features would be lower priority. What do you think?

I switched my vote to sometimes (from Never). After seeing the votes, I tried ambient mode with different watch faces. And some are more useful than others. The digital ones with big fonts (e.g. Novi) still looks nice in dim mode.
