Design submitted by Logan from the USA.
Logan describes his “Arctime” watch design as a “Dissection of the clock into 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 arcs, fit compactly into a square. Each arc has three segments not shared by other arcs, which are blue to indicate hours, yellow to indicate groups of 5 minutes, or green when an overlap is necessary to tell the time. The four small segments where the arcs intersect indicate single minutes, and their color can always be chosen (blue, green, or yellow) to be different than the hour and 5-minute segments.”
The method of telling the time is solid & logical but requires you learn the patterns & colours to decipher it. It’s definitely one of the more complex methods and we know from experience that that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Many Tokyoflash customers prefer displays that are totally unreadable except to the trained eye & require a certain amount of skill to get used to. Other people prefer something that doesnt take too much brain power, but still has an element of the unusual.
We’d love to hear your comments on this one & how you feel about the reading the time method and the patterns that this watch creates. That’s quite an interesting part of it, especially with the overlapping blue/yellow turning to green, the pattern is always going to be shifting dramatically from hour to hour.
