Close up shots that well focused are a treat to see - and a good way sometimes of detecting shoddy workmanship.
I try not to look too closely at some if my older watches. Macro photgraphy reveals horrors.

The 2nd one is awesome! Did you use a phone and one of those macro lens accessories ? Many people apparently do this nowadays... I'm often blown away by the quality of smartphone photos...

Good old Nikon DSLR and Nikon 105mm f2.8 Macro lens. Tripod mirror up and cable release.

I have seen some good pictures taken with phones and an add in lens.

Makes you appreciate even more the workmanship and intracacies of a watch,from the movements to the watch face itself,even if we dont like a certain style theres no doubt most are still almost damn perfect!

Nice shots! The best I could do with an iPhone and a camera lens...

I was trying to get the depth of the logos which have been applied to the dial.

I've done my fair share of macro shots back in the day.

Bejesus, guys...how close d'ya need to get..........

Oh, I get it...this is the photography section.....it's all lenses and DSLRs....F stops and focusing.

Guys....that's all dead now. A basic smart phone can now take a better pic than all that paraphernalia. Plus you don't need to lug a backpack full of outdated luggage with you.

Smart phone, magnifyer app, job done............

....and before you rubbish the above, photography was my be all and end all hobby...and I had all the gear and knew how to use it. Sometimes you have to leave the 'Luddite' behind and go with the flow........
