Design submitted by Den from Russia.
Den says: “I think in real life we always use sentences like “half past…” or “quarter to…”, so it is possible to make watch without minutes details. Just with quarters.”It’s an interesting idea and is a concept watch design that uses LEDs to show hours, in the same position as numbers on a clock and only shows minutes by quarters – it’s an approximation of time, but makes for an interesting appearance. See an animation of this design here.
The watch has a shape that focusses on the quarters, featuring a section at 00, 15, 30 and 45 to highlight these elements of time. If you’d like to see this concept become reality, please vote below.
