(English) Design submitted by Logan from the USA.
Logan says: “ I started with the shape of the LCD, and the rest followed from there. Starship is an always-on LCD watch with an electroluminescent backlight and a small touch pad instead of buttons.
The time is displayed in 12- or 24-hour mode as 3-4 digits shown in negative space on the LCD. For hours 10-19 (or 10-12 if in 12-hour mode), the second hour digit is a little narrower than usual in order to fit, and for hours 20-24, both digits are narrower. Still, the 3-4 digits of the time can always be displayed at once.
When a digit changes, there is an animation where the new digit (in negative) flies in from the opposite side (from left to right for minutes, and from right to left for hours).
Instead of buttons, the watch uses a small touch pad on the face. Electroluminescent backlighting (blue-green) is used to provide uniform illumination of the large LCD. The case and strap are hairline-brushed aluminum.
Because of the large number of LCD segments, this watch could have additional display functionality such as a digital compass displaying the bearing, a graphic equalizer, or Bluetooth pairing with an MP3 player and showing track titles as scrolling letters (in positive segments).
This watch is the perfect graduation present for a new starship science officer. It’s a very sleek watch with strong techie appeal, yet it’s still extremely easy to read and always on.
