Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.
A concept watch design inspired by the shape of the wrist and the movement of flowing water. The connection to water is also carried over to the animated graphics showing the time, echoing rings spreading across liquid. The buttons are hidden to maintain a clean, watertight exterior.
The watch sits forward, almost on the hand. The body and strap blend, maintaining integrity. To show time, a ‘ripple’ animation flows across the display, lighting hour and minute indicators. Hours are shown by six bars colour-coded for AM or PM, minutes by ten bars coloured to indicate the half-hour.
Being watertight and having a liquid design theme, the watch is aimed at athletes; specifically swimmers. It also incorporates a stop watch function, in which case the minute indicators change to show elapsed seconds as well. Additionally, the sculptural shape makes it very wearable on other occasions, parties for example.
The appeal of this watch lies in its subtle and integrated design, with hidden buttons and slick, glassy metallic finish. The liquid theme is maintained throughout, and the stringent design would appeal to people looking for a sporty watch as well as the style-conscious seeking an addition to their wardrobe.
