The Legend of The Bleeding Blade – A Watch Design

Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: “During the Sengoku period, there was a haunted sword that sucks blood of the victim. After the master of the sword passed away, the sword was destined to fall into the hand of a mad scientist who later modified the sword to be a “bleeding blade” watch.

According to the scientist, the watch uses animation guided LEDs to show the time and date. An illustration and example of how to tell the time and date is provided below.

The watch was initially dedicated to a brave warrior with strong determination to be its master. But as the time changes, the watch design can be worn as a fashion item for those who want to look rugged, or creepy – like your wrist has got cut.

In the western area, similar watches with different colored blood were found and paranormal researchers have suggested that the watch could be originally the ancient technology of alien, or it could be inspired by underworld creature or even the spirit?”

    Uzumaki: 5/4 This: 5/1. Sorry Firdaus. Too complicated. The Kanji writing too much for me!

      Hahaha don’t be scared Laszo, it won’t suck your blood (in other words, wrong target market).
      Sorry accepted ;-)

      yeah it is difficult, but not tricky, once u can read the kanji number (from top) 1-12 then follow the step you will got it. for example above, step 1 (hour=7), step 2 (minute=3x) + step 3 (minute x9) = 7.39. Sorry for the lack of manual, its my mistake did not add another attachment. thanks

    Ok readers,

    HOW TO TELL THE TIME (see the animation above)

    left bleed = 3 x step; step 1= hour, step 2 = minute+, step 3 = +minute from step 2.
    the long bleed = from top, 1 to 12.

    example above: step 1= hour = 7, step 2 = 3+ minute, + step 3 = +9 minute. Hence, its 7.39.

    HOW TO TELL THE DATE

    left bleed = 3xstep; step 1 = day+, step 2 = +day, step 3 = month.

    long bleed = digit from top 1 -12 in kanji.

    example above: step 1 = day = 2+, step 2 = day = +6, step 3 = 12th month. Hence, its 26/12.

    when 0, all digit leds on.

    The step is only for guidance.

    僕はTWELVE-5-9がありますから、この時計が好きだ!You just left a cut in my memory ;) I like the shape of the case, the kanji, the damn hot cuts and the renderings. Pretty convincing to me. The animation could be slower. Maybe three times flashing before changing the step. Respect!

      I’m glad you understand the concept, yeah it could be in any languages, but japanese number is not too difficult IMHO, maybe roman numbers with japanese-like font would be better ;-) thank u

    The hour reading system is pretty easy, the same reading system you can find on the Denshoku, but the date is bit complicated, oh hell, who needs the date, every mobile phone in the world is showing you the date, and this thing is more a fashion statement then a practical watch. 5 stars.

      I also love the kanji, it gives a Japanese feeling to the product, a feeling most people are looking for when they buy something from a company called Tokyoflash.

    The helping lines and the numbers could be less visible, they destroy the impression of a cut watch. That idea btw is great.

    This watch is a good reason to learn japanese/chinese numbers. It shows, it comes from japan and that is already a reason to buy. I don’t know that legend but the result looks great. Sharp! 5*/y

    Really like this design Firdaus :) Prefer the darker case of the ‘alien’ design over the stainless but that’s just me…

    (oh yeah great job on the rendering as well)

    I hope this one makes it! It is simple to tell time on once you look at it, and it is different enough to get noticed. I’ll take one of each color if they get put into production!!!

    Any chance of a black case with red or white LEDs?
