Casio Illuminator MTD-1049

I am not even trying ...
to get a good front shot of this watch. The (probably 4 mm) thick mineral crystal has no anti-reflective coating and this means in combination with the black dial: torture for the photographer. Endless change of angle and play with all kind of tricks to reduce the glare visible on the crystal. I chose the easy way out and offer a slightly angled wrist shot instead. Please note that the distance of the picture in the wrist shot is very important for the impression of the watch's size. The more arm you see in a wrist shot, the smaller the watch will appear. I remember a Timezone.com post where a TZer posted a scientific explanation of that effect. The poster did all the math and explained all the measurements and calculated distortions etc. based on the distance of camera and watch. Facit is that if the camera is very close to the watch during the wrist shot, only a portion of the arm will be visible and the watch will look much bigger then it is in reality. This watch feels in fact bigger on my wrist then this picture suggests.
