(English) Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.
Ignacio says: “Some months ago, I was watching my clock and I asked myself: “Why must the hands rotate? Why not the numbers?” This inspired me to come up with this watch design. It took me several months to make the final concept because it has been difficult to find the best design.
I think this watch mixes the looks of a classic clock with a futuristic watch. And it makes very easy read the time: It has four rings with numbers, from 0 to 9; the first and the second shows the hours, and the third and the fourth shows the minutes; and the time is showed in the right-centre place. It’s easy isn’t?
Anyone can wear this watch! Is very easy to read, so I think this watch design is perfectly suited to those who are new to Tokyoflash watches, to introduce them to the world of futuristic watch design; and it’s ideal for “hardcores” too of course, because it’s a good example of a classic clock and a Tokyoflash watch.
I think my design is new because it blends classic clock looks with futuristic watches from Tokyoflash. The 4-independent rings design make it different from normal watches, and is as unusual as the Tokyoflash’s watches but is not as complicated as some, since it’s being very easy to read.
This watch design has 4 rings with numbers from 0 to 9. The time is showed in the right place, where numbers are aligned and rights. The first and second digits show the hour; the third and fourth shows the minutes. It has a button and a wheel. The button turns on the 4 LEDs beneath the numbers. And the wheel change the time like a classic clock.”
