(English) Design submitted by Roderick from Malta.
Roderick says: “Due to my passion for simple and minimalist product design, I decided to simplify the stereotypical form of the analogue watch as much as possible while retaining its functionality and ease of use.The ‘hands’ of the watch are attached to the circumference thus enabling it to be hollow. The inner circumference rotates via a chain mechanism attached to the gear wheels present in the bottom part of the steel casing thus the ‘hands’ rotate to show time. The longer hand represents minutes whilst the other represents hours.
This minimalist watch can be worn by both males and females of different age groups due to the minimalist design of the watch. It is presumed that it will mainly attract the younger generation.
The working mechanism and the sheer simplicity of the watch makes it not so common to find and by keeping the basic form of a typical wrist watch, the design results to be more successful.”
