(English) Design submitted by Nemoto san from Japan.
This watch design is a redefined version of the NEMOTO Vibration Watch. Basically, time in Morse Code is told by the vibrating display of the watch, but now Nemoto san has made a more intuitive way of telling time.
The watch face has twelve plates indicating hours (1-12). When the correct plate indicating the current hour is touched, it vibrates to tell the minutes. One short vibration indicates 1-5 minutes, two short vibrations is for 6-10 minutes, and so on. One long vibration indicates 0 minute.
This minimalist design focuses on the plates and functionality using Braille points. Plates have divisions in three to help determine time even without looking at the watch.
Time is synchronized by radio waves but can also be manually set using the twelve plates (e.g. tap 5th plate twice – hold – 5 taps – hold = 5:25). To change between setting modes, touch 3 or more plates then touch the 1st plate for 10 seconds.
The bracelet-like design can appeal to both young men and women, and people with weak eyesight can also benefit from the vibration feature of this watch.
