Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “Tron fever finally got me! The new movie just came out in Germany and I saw it right away.
The inspiration for the watch comes from the lightcycles used in the movie. I thought about making the straps look like the lightcycle trails. The idea for the watch hands came up after Tokyoflash announced it was looking for analog watch designs, but I didn’t have a case idea back then. The mirror in the case center is an element to emphasize the ring shape by pretending that the case to be hollow, but without exposing the skin of the wrist.
The straps and the minute hand, as well as the ring around the case are made of a matte translucent plastic with are able to accumulate and guide the light coming from the LEDs inside the case. So they do not glow by themselves. The case is made of IP black stainless steel. There is no button visible on the case. The light is switched on by the outer ring on top of the case. It needs to be turned 180°. If one continues to turn it, the LEDs change their color. Time and LED intensity setting buttons are on the case’s back side. The inner ring of the case has indicators for hours / five minute steps to ease up reading.
I think sci-fi fans as well as party people could like this watch because it is simple, easy to read, futuristic and color changing.”
