The example below describes an ordinary wrist watch in detail. Notice how the description focuses on different parts of the watch and uses a few comparisons to make help paint a picture.
The watch is sleek and gray with steel needle hands. There is both an inner and an outer dial, and both are the graphite gray of a thick, crumbling pencil line. Steel numbers glint there, tall and even while light catches in the dial, throwing fans and bow ties across the dark. A dozen or more little scratches scribble over the dull body of the watch. The strap, meanwhile, has been knit of chain mesh like a tidy little suit of armor that grips my wrist just a little too tight.
