: hi jeff

sorry to say it only took 5 mins. i should have taken a little more time then there wouldn't be finger marks on the side of the case. my advantage was that usable lighting was already in place from a sunday supplement shoot, so it was a case of grabbing a digital slr camera and snapping it. (camera was a nikon d1x with 60mm macro lens for what it's worth)

photoshop helped to make it look a little like the Montreal double page spread seen in the 1973 Heuer catalogue, which was the aim.

a quick check shows that this catalogue is not on 'on the dash' so i will try and find the retouched original picture (as it's a dps it has a gutter running through the middle of it) and post it up tonight

what's the next scan day theme?
