Design submitted by Peter from UK.
Peter says: “I wanted to come up with a single hand analog watch that uses 3D to display the time. I decided that the minutes would be shown in a conventional manner and the hours would be in a vertical plane. I looked into a means of maneuvering the single hand in both a rotational manner and up and down for the hours. The rotor arrangement of a helicopter fitted the bill. I then used this as a bit of a theme for the styling of this watch.”
To see the minutes, you look at the watch from above as per a regular watch. To see the hours, you look at the perimeter of the watch where the single hand tilts to point at 1 of 12 bands/grooves which circle the case.
This watch design would appeal to anyone who likes analogue watches but fancies something a little different and adventurous.
