"Presented in a super-light titanium case, this exclusive-production timepiece is precision-made to awaken sound. It brings unprecedented acoustic performance, exceptionally refined sound quality and the clear, harmonic tone of traditional pocket-watches to a contemporary minute repeater wristwatch." - Audemars Piguet
Supersonnerie is my latest collaboration project combining CGI and photography. I was asked to model and create a serie of CG images based on a real-world AP watch. Since this relatively rare and expensive, around 500.000 $ worth conceptual timepiece isn't the easiest watch to find in the local finnish watch market, I had no choice but to create one from scratch.
After seven challenging, but yet exciting weeks of modeling, rendering and post-production work, I would like to present you some new unique images of the Supersonnerie. The watch was modeled in Maya, rendered in VRay and the cool abstract backgrounds are shot by Tuukka Koski at Koski Syväri. Big thanks to Tuukka and the FLC Helsinki crew.

Please note this digital model of the watch is based on the reference material only - not the official technical drawings by Audemars Piguet. The model is not 100% accurate compared to the real wristwatch.
