Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “I sketched for an unusual analog watch and after days of experiments the idea for this watch developed.
I chose a traditional look for the watch because the display itself is unusual enough. There are four pairs of watch hands on the display. There are several display modes: Time zone mode (you can set four times, including the actual time) and Neutral mode (with a self created layout wich you like to wear on your wrist). The exact time telling occurs, when you press the button. Doing so, the eight hands rotate to a position in wich they form a digital number. Four digital numbers are shown one after the other, each with a duration of one second. After all four digits, the mode you left after pressing the button reappears.
To set the times, you need to pull the button, then rotate it. When setting the analog time for the top sub-watch, the other hands point to it, to tell you, where you are. After that you go to the other sub watches by pressing the button, then pulling again. The other sub-watches can only show variations of the top sub-watch in steps of 30 minutes (the minimum step, two time zones can vary from each other) to ease up setting. When setting the Neutral Mode pattern, you can do what you want to let the display look cool. When finished with all settings, you press the button one last time and you’re done. The watch has no light. But the watch hands are coated with a fluorescent material wich glows in the dark for some hours after switching off the light.
Anyone who likes it tame and traditional but stylish and fashionable might like this watch. It’s is a hybrid watch and therefore pretty different. The traditional look combined with an interesting display as well as the multiple-usage hands are outstanding.”
