There are currently around 30,000 watch faces in the growing Facer database. While smartwatches and the potential for designers to come up with creative watch faces is exciting, there will naturally be demand for the good design of familiar and iconic watch faces too. But existing watch designs or something too closely mimicking them submitted by third parties are obviously a concern. Let’s be honest that this problem is not limited to smartwatch faces, and we also see a lot of “inspired by” design across the watch industry – but let’s stick with the topic of smartwatches and Facer for now… More at A Blog To Watch.

I can’t quite get my head around the idea of watchmakers allowing their faces to appear on a smart watch. It’s not real in any way.
