Rising Sun Watch Design

Design submitted by Calvin from UK.

Here’s another unique Japanese-themed watch design.  Calvin’s concept shows a striking and vivid representation of Japanese symbols.

The white exterior and red LED will without question attract everyone’s attention and interest.  People who fancies Japanese-related gadgets will surely go for this watch.

Top LED section shows the hours, second section indicates AM/PM, third section shows 10-minute segments, and fourth section shows 1-minute segments.  PM is indicated by a half sun sign and AM, a full sun.

We wish we could see it in a more 3D-rendered form but Calvin’s images are detailed enough to make us visualize the potential it carries.  How do you see the final structure of this watch?

    日本がテーマなのはいいんですが、ちょっとダイレクトすぎないですかね(笑)。でもアシメなかんじは、他にも展開できそう。

      first bar = 8
      third bar = 5
      fourth bar = 6 and if half sun symbol shows it means it is PM and full sun = AM.
      the second bar is reserved for the time is 2 digit like 11 or 12 o clock! :D

    Hmm. “Land of the Rising sun”. Think unless you are really a Japanese patriot you wouldn’t wear this. I wouldn’t wear any flag watch on my wrist, but think some would. Chotto Dasai. By the ratings seems like enough people would though.

    You dont have to be japanese to wear this watch, the japanese rising sun flag is so cool that it has become a symbol of fashion not a symbol of patriots!

    I like the idea and I can see that it would appeal to people with an interest in Japan, like Kanji t-shirts I guess. I think I worked out how the time is read. 12 hours in the first ray of light, 5 groups of 10 minutes in the second ray of light and 9 single minutes in third ray of light. I think this idea would go down a lot better in a less boxy case.

    I agree with Said on the casing design. Any classic Japanese icon is instantly attractive. I would definitely buy it.

    Ok I take this as a sketch because otherwise I can’t judge it seriously. It’s cool you have the will to make your idea come to live even if you have not much knowledge in visualisation. I get your idea and with some further developing, this could become a good stylish japanese watch. I bet Tokyo Flash could make it a seller :D
