Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “I thought I would give hexagons a chance this time. I made a geometrically simple case and strap in IP black and let little gaps form hexagons all around the watch design.
The time is told in 4 digital numbers, hours in green and minutes in cyan. Each number is shown by two hexagons. If they are aligned one upon the other, the digital numbers are recognized easily. I offer five reading modes to let people decide, how complicated they want it. Modes A – C show different positions of the several numbers. In modes C and D the several numbers are split up. That means, the two hexagons, which show one number, are separated. I suggest to learn how to read the numbers in normal modes to easily read them in the separated modes. I like the cryptic appearance of the last two modes. Especially for the untrained eye they must look confusing. I integrated the light and setting buttons into the case by using the upper and ower edge hexagons. When pressing the light button, all LEDs light up before they show the time. I let the unlit part flicker, to give the impression of a not properly working neon tube.
This watch design is ideal for the geek within, because it is all about decrypting here. I am using digital numbers, so you actually just have to read the watch – no counting, no calculating. You “only” have to pass the barrier of abstraction.”
