Watch Design – Hidden Time In A Bracelet

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick’s desire was to draw a very special watch design that captures elegance and class. A watch design that doesn’t look like a watch but more like a sophisticated bracelet or piece of jewelry. He wanted to draw a gem, with a watch hidden inside.

The result of this creative thinking is Rotate, a bracelet style watch design finished in silver, gold or IP black with a vivid colored LCD display to show the time and date with a subtle, discreet touch of the finger.

A sharp watch design with clean lines, the bracelet tapers from front to back and appears to have a retractable clasp so that the design wraps around your wrist. The time is viewed on the small circular medallion at the top of the design. From an arial perspective, this appears simply to be an element of design in the bracelet, but the time is actually hidden in this disk so that when you turn it with your finger, it reveals the information you need; time, date and day.

The display is LCD and is backlit with LEDs, perfect for night time and low light situations. Patrick suggests that this design would be suitable for refined women who demand something special and different.

What do you think about this concept watch design? Would you wear this or would you give it to the special lady in your life? Let us hear your feedback. As with all concept watches on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog, vote and this could become reality.

    Great design!

    Maybe you don’t need the closing mechanism, if the bracelet is elastic enough – saves money and there are less breakable parts.

    Ok I’m not a girl but you get 5*/y from me because this design is fantastic :D

      Yes Sam, the band is always a problem for me, it is true that without locking system (if possible?), It would be simpler and more sober.
      Thank you for your appreciation!

    very nice concept, but yes, remove the lock and bevel the interior part of the band for confort (just a little bit).
    i give you 4 for the mechanical simplicity of the display switch.

    I like the idea. Minor changes to the band to remove sharp edges and I’d buy it as a gift.

      If the watch is produced, let me offer it to you.

      Of course, this watch can be adapted to men, but it would be another project.
