Design submitted by Scott from the UK.
Scott says: “With this watch design I wanted to think of a word that has a very visual response when mentioned, and see if i could come up with a design that reflected this. That word was ‘lightning’.
I like unusual watches, but if they are too complex they defeat the purpose, so simplicity was paramount with this display. For me, the critical element is the illumination effect. It has to be a super bright flash (well as bright as LEDs can get!) with a fade out effect, like a lightning strike. The actual ‘strikes’ have been given a ‘tech’ look, and the case has been given an angular element to compliment this.
Finally, i wanted something that would give it an extra edge. I not only want a cool display, but also a cool way to show the display. To do this you simply slide your finger along the base of the face.
The watch lights up with with 4 flashes revealing the time, one digit at a time. A date option could be added, plus an animation feature of random flashes in the evening.”
