There is a long way between the sketching, technical design and 3D models.
First of all, after sketches and defining our way, we started with the case design drawings in 2D as this is one of the most significant parts. Later on based on these 2D files the CAD model is built and the case mould is created.
We have decided to have the modern and sharp style of the watches and it took several iterations to find the right shape, create new edges to resemble F1 racing car air diffusers and to achieve the proper shape of the bezel.
Pushers is another thing to take care of.
It is pretty common to see these days oversized round pushers, each having a separate color. To have a sleek transfer from case to pushers and the crown, we designed them in a flat style putting different decorations on each. The Chronograph start button actually has a "Start" sign debossed and filled with the traditional for Paddock Chronograph acid yellow color, while the stop/reset button has horizontal grooves.
The crown is formed of 2 pieces: unpainted steel base with PaceMasters logo engraving and a Black plated teeth. The crown has a screw down type.
