Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam came up with the idea of a 12-5-9 watch with all the time telling LEDs placed on one single circle. If it is 1:00 there is only one light that fills the whole circle. If it is 1:23, there are six lights (one for the hours, 2 for the minutes x10, and three for the minutes x1).
The circle would be divided into six equal segments. There are a maximum of twenty-six divisions. In the center of the display are round digital numbers showing the seconds. The have a random color each second. The date mode in 12-3-9 has practically the same way of reading. The center numbers mean years. An E-ink display would have the resolution and brightness to make such a display.
Counting should start from the top position of the display to a clockwise direction. The cyan colored lights stand for hours, 10 minutes group in magenta, and single minutes in yellow. The lights are bracketed to ease up reading.
