Design submitted by Gabor Nemeth from Hungary.
Gabor says: “I really like the concept of binary watches, although it’s hard to find any stylish pieces in this category, so I thought I could try to create my own.
The design is basically a mixture of the “classic” analog and the binary watch mechanisms: there are two LED circles – the inner one for the hours and the outer one for the minutes. Each LED represent a power of 2 (2^0, 2^1, …) which you can tell by their alignment (like on analog watches). You can tell the time by simply adding the values together (for instance 1:05 is [2^0] : [2^0 + 2^2]).
This design would be ideal for anyone who appreciates modern, minimalistic design and likes applied sciences. The market of binary watches is really small and most of these watches are quite cheap-looking and hard to read for most people. I believe this design can be a fresh idea among nowadays binary systems with its simple yet elegant look and easy readability.”
