This squadron of technological racing machines entertains with its diverse, futuristic style. Settle in for the ride.
The mutants are a concept family which borrows the genetic material of contemporary watches, but which has experienced several evolutions. Mutation is underway. Underneath the familiar physical traits, clever technical solutions are at work, designed, above all, to be elegant.
The Ultimates are the standard-bearers of the SOON adventure. The concepts in this series boast sophisticated mechanisms and unconventional cases.
Take the time to lose yourself in the details, and really understand their movements and functions. These watches are not from around here, and they’re not afraid to show it.

All of my drawings start with pencil sketches. This is a crucial step, allowing me to quickly go through several ideas without censuring myself.
The choice of sketches for the SOON adventure was made based on their relevance and daring.
Discover new ideas through many ball point sketches and appreciate their final colorised version.
The colored illustrations are rich in details. Numbers,screws,gears or rubies are accurately described and define credibility. Details are part of my creative process. Sketches define the ideas and rendered images provided in detail describe precisely the object. Enjoy !
As a habit, I always try to share my point of view or the techniques I’ve acquired over time, so others can benefit. In the “Making Of”, detailed notes explain the coloring process of the SOON adventure concepts on Adobe Photoshop.
