Asymmetrical Alien Communicator Concept Watch

Design submitted by Maciej Mandrysz from Poland.

Here’s what Maciej says about his unique concept: “An asymmetric watch design that is simple, modern & clean. Inspired by a sci-fi computer interface. 12 LEDs on left represent hours, 10 LEDs in the center represent 10 minute group, and 9 LEDs on the right represent single minutes.”

A very striking look to this watch design by Maciej. Black and green together just have to be alien don’t they? Could be a countdown device for self-destruct, a cryptic communicator, some kind of analysing device – my last guess would be a wrist watch. It’s nice to see all these community designs pouring in: people getting involved & enjoying the creativity! What are your thoughts on this watch design?

The strap is off-set from the case, so its not the usual round or square case, we’ve seen only a few using this arrangement before – is it something you would like to wear? The case is curved to fit your wrist, it poses some technical challenges because everyones wrist is different & circuit boards are flat, not curved – but nothing that cant be solved creatively. Is it better to have the angled side toward your hand or toward your arm? The face is fairly simple. 3 columns with geometric shapes, quite attractive in black and green but perhaps needs some more work to really turn the look into something special.

    Nice appearance. The asymmetry, the 45° cut off corners, the slight bending of the case and its thinness are very cool. The three indicator shapes are wisely chosen, rechtangular for the rechtanglar side, 45° rotated rectangular for the cut off side and, as an intermediary, the hexagons in the middle. I think green for the LEDs is the best color for this watch. If the strap is made of rectangles with at least one corner 45° cut off, then it would look consequently.

    This is a very original shape, nice and sleek and quite easy to read. Love the color combination too. The color combination reminds me of a previous concept – Sensha
    (http://www.tokyoflash.com/blog/2010/05/sensha/).

    In answer to the question above, I would definitely wear an off-set strap as long as it didn’t look too out of place on my wrist.

    I think this design fit well into Tokyoflash’s range. I just think the balance of the width of the watch is not quite right. Maybe a bit wider, and not sure about the curve.Love the lines on the glass, a nice touch. Green for sure, fits with its SI FI image. A good fun watch overall.

    Hi, i am very happy for such a good rating on this design & surprised as well. I agree with feedback about to curved shape. I am not very good with 3d graphics and doing perspective using 2d software is not easy stuff. I think it could be less curved on bottom in final desig (something like case of Shinshoku, it is curved on top & sided, but bottom is flat).
    It looked slightly different in my head before i started making it live, but the general concept of asymmetric case, colour combination, and curved glass is very close to my vision. It definitely needs some lifting before it can be manufactured. And strap would be more detailed so it fits to the rest. I am sure most of the people see what i tried to achieve & lack of graphic skills does not bother them. Thanks again everyone. Within next few days i will post one more design, probably last one. It’s gonna be called: Sprocket. Stay tuned :)

    Cool and easy to read, I like the shape too, but the bracelet is kinda slim.

    I like the scifi-ish casing shape and display layout. It looks consistent and is really easy to read. Colors are ok too.
    Although the strap doesn’t really fit the cool shaped casing.
    The buttons look a bit out of place. Maybe positioning them on small sides (45° cut off at the corners) would look color – additionally one would not tap on them by accident with back of the hand.
