Overlooked: The CasebackThe front side of your watch gets a lot of attention normally. Often more than the caseback, so I've decided to write a piece of writing dedicated to casebacks as well as their designs. Besides some nice extravagant examples, I will review some general facts and my personal method of analyzing and categorizing case backs. So please, sit by and relax.General introduction and layoutThe back of your watch, rose gold breitling also known as a "caseback", can reveal several 'hidden' parts compared to the top. Hidden lugs or several parts of the movement one example is. The front side of the watch is devoted to show time in a very distinctive and legible way; it will be the top priority. For the back side, normally, it's not the situation. Here, the manufacturer can target other considerations to build a general identity besides displaying the movement in a few examples. It is really an ideal location to show-off some artwork and important watch specifications. Although the correct answer is an ideal spot, the designer will encounter some caseback specific challenges. One example is, caseback-opener cavities, screws, edges and intensely short space. Every caseback have their own challenges: snap on case backs, screw on case backs and 4-screw watch backs all have their own personal limitations. Sometimes there needs to be some space available necessary elements, logos and marks. Some examples:A certified EPSA dive-helmet logo to suggest a caseback with implemented patented compressor-technique (although sometimes also engraved within the caseback).Common gold jewelry markings (e.g. "18K").Thus, true back is not an complete "carte blanche" to the designerCaseback lay-outMost of the time in a situation back provides the watch properties and also other important matters prearranged on the circle shaped text path, following circle form of the watch back. This can be the majority, but there are exceptions. A screwed square shaped case backs as an example:Caseback of the Hautlence BW15By adding nice custom separators as an alternative to hyphens or pipe symbols it's even possible to be original on 'techy lines':Custom and branded separators about the Tudor PelagosDifferent case back variants and stylesI looked up from the FratelloWatches photo archive and collected some fascinating case backs. From that point I made the choice to create categories:Minimalistic case backsCrowded or show-off case backsPersonalized case backsColored case backsCase backs which has a 3D-effectExhibition case backsWith this in mind I would like to discuss every category and then review some. Some replica watches which we'll review in a very sec fit into several categories, that is ok. They're just displayed within a category to present a good example.Minimalistic case backsThe cleanest caseback there may be. No fancy stuff. Not many necessary elements/lines constitute the base of this caseback-category. When you find yourself into vintage replica watches it may not be hard to spot a 'minimalistic' case back. Often only a serial number, material mark or certification number was engraved on the exterior. In those days, certain engraving techniques that happen to be now assumed standard were expensive for mass production or you cannot invented yet. Also, replica watches served an even more practical purpose and a lot of case back examples before 1970 show this to us:Besides vintage examples modern ones are not hard to seek out. This Sinn for example. It shows commitment to 'tool replica watches' by preserve things simple and easy spartan:Crowded casebacksThe complete opposite of minimalistic. Nearly every micrometer can be used. Even if this might sound to become a simple category for brands there are some important points to make note of:Keep things readable. Usually do not transform the situation back in an advanced puzzle…Remain hierarchy on elements.Keep balance between elements and space(rs). Otherwise the general look may be uncomfortably squished.Personalized casebacksThis category isn't going to ascend to its very own. It's together with one of additional categories and it's a complementary category. Here's the location where the true stories are told. Custom one-of-a-kind (hand) engravings develop a more personal touch to your watch. Even if this caseback often triggers our emotions additionally, it does effect the significance in a negative way , unless we talk about an authentic president's watch or perhaps a famous astronaut's Moonwatch:Personalized casebackTalking about stories. Personalized case back engravings tell a narrative about us, but casebacks itself also tell an account incidentally it seems. The case-back gets beat up, is impacted by heavy climates or maybe the engraving fades away. Considerably more interesting then those 'pristine' casebacks to my opinion.I think a (partly) faded caseback creates characterColored casebacksBy adding color these watch backs enter another galaxy with an increase of options and expressive possibilities. Sometimes one color may be just enough:The nice deep red color have the Heuer-logo pop outMulti-color scenarios are possible. Overall the main colors red, blue and yellow would be the most widely used to keep optimal contrast. Some good examples:Casebacks using a 3D effectWith heavenly raised and 3D shaped elements these are the basic ones with an increase of sculptural ambitions. It appears as though they're approaching you together with make a great depth towards the caseback. You almost could walk around it. The thicker the caseback, the higher. In this way you will have a wider range to make more extreme high-low differences, shadows and natural shapes of elements. Having a thicker case you may earn a moon more globe shaped for instance.Sometimes it is difficult to determine whether a caseback can be a 3D caseback or 'just' a caseback with raised elements. watches Permit me to try to visualize that. No rules, just my personal opinion:Exihibition casebacksThis one is for the technique lovers. Every caseback in this category incorporates a part the place that the case materials are removed and substituted with a "window" or sapphire crystal. That way the brand can expose his technical skills to us by (partly) displaying the movement to us watch geeks. This is called an exhibition caseback. plain circle window some brands do test out different sizes and shapes. Together with a minimal engraved outside of the brand can convey a focus on the movement. In the end, sometimes there is no need for (outer ring) engravings at all:Odd man outJust before we conclude I would like to show some original examples: EpilogueWe've seen various flavors. For individuals watch nerds it really is interesting to determine and observe the (design) different amounts of brands. When they are a little tied to techniques, screws and sapphire crystals there are plenty of options. Let's be critical on watch backs and ask ourselves a couple of questions when reviewing a caseback:Which caseback category is correct for your watch?Could be the readability good?Will be the movement interesting enough for the exhibition caseback?How much attention is paid to details like separators and such?Would be the caseback balanced regarding elements and spacing?If there's the historical past: How exactly does this caseback develops and evolve over time?What element does have the caseback distinctive?Should the watch fits into the course of personalized replica watches: should i wish to wear this "story"? Will it be somehow coupled to the watch? By way of example tissot touch , a Moonwatch worn by an astronaut birthday engraving with a random father to his son.Maybe I'll write a post disaster in this topic someday. Content with regards to a specific model plus the case backs or focus over a specific category. For the moment, enough is claimed and hopefully this forms a straightforward digestible summary about casebacks. Enjoy your efforts, move on and do look back now and then�
