Analog Radar Watch Design

(English) Design submitted by Kristian from Sweden.

This watch concept was created as an answer to a search for a new analog watch.

It is a classic three-hand watch with a thin perforated dial in front of the hands.  The ring of 12 perforated holes will show the hour and the outer perforated 60 holes will show minutes and seconds.  Also, every 10 seconds the second hand will sweep by in a row of 8 holes.

This watch design is a classic watch with a new touch to it.

    Ahhhh there’s so many circles! It’s so overwhelming! I still like it though =) Easy to read at a glance, visually appealing too. 4* and a yes from me.

    One thing: In your images showing times other than 12:00:00, the dots are not aligned with the holes… No biggie, just pointing that out.

      Thanks, Yes with a “jumping” movement it might be possible to always have the dots aligned with the holes.

    Oh a little beauty :) I really like the perforated display. It reminds me of some iMac’s speaker holes. I would also prefer a non-smooth movement of the watch hands so they are always aligned to the dots. Cool and simple new touch of an analog watch. Buyworthy!

      Thank You! Yes it might be better with a non-smooth movement, but I dont know if its possible to make the hour hand “jump” to the next hole though… It could also be made as a real led watch instead of a analog. /Kristian

        When you look at traditional analog watches, you find many with a second hand moving in steps. Letting the hour and minute hand move in steps can be done with clever mechanics :) I like that is it an analog watch, it is easy to make and looks cool.

    This is a good example of how a look of LED watch can be achieved by only utilizing conventional analogue hands. Nice work!

    I agree with Samukun. I might find it hard to read, however.

    I like the concept, but I’d like to see it with perforations in other sizes and shapes. Different perforations might make it easier to read, while retaining the core idea.

    Great look. But I dont like the fact, you can see half dots the most of the time. Thats a misconception which made me vote ***YES. So change the hand movement and you have another customer.
