Design submitted by Devindh from UK.
This watch design is Devindh’s new presentation of his previously submitted design, Analog LED Digital Hybrid Watch Design. Devindh did some research and found two watches that employed belt mechanisms instead of a circular rotating disc for the hour markers. One was the ‘Devon Works Tread 1’ and the other was the ‘Tag Heuer Monaco V4’.
Devindh decided to use the idea of a belt drive mechanism, but unlike the Devon Works watch, he chose to position the numbers extending sideways from the belt, and to have the mechanism itself concealed to optimize the readability of the face. The seconds display is playfully angled to suggest perspective and ‘point’ at the current hour. The display also features inverse illumination.
Devindh hopes that this watch will strike a balance between traditional mechanical timepieces and modern digital ones.
