Hinged Analog LED Watch Design

Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.

Gordon says that he wanted to make a watch that incorporated a double hinge band for a man.

Time is told like an analog watch.  The outer ring of lights show the hour, the second ring counts 5 minute intervals, and the center triangles count single minutes.  Straps are spring loaded and will stay open in the open position.

Gordon sees men wearing this watch, perhaps engineers or designers.

    thanks guys , this one was fun

    when i say hinges stay open, think about a jewelry box hing. once it is open its stuck open, but when it is closed it creates downward pressure on the band.

    does anyone see the first three pictures, they are not showing up on my page.I would appreciate a lot if someone can say they are up there cheers

    Interesting design :3 looks like it could perhaps be a walking creature when the hinges are open! :D

    I like it Gordon, steel and carbon with the red face for me. I like the combinations of material and the chucky industrial feel. Nice work 5* and Yes

    I like this watch, but I can not wear it, I’m not an engineer or designer? Too bad!
    Little joke.
    5 * / Yes!

    This watch definately works, simple time telling but incoporated into a cool futuristic pattern…this is what tokyoflash is all about (H) 5 stars and yes. its real good dude

    3/N it’s boring

    • avatar Jun Fan Lee says:

      explain why its boring, explain where he could improve…explain the reason you rate it so low, is it the case? is it the time telling, the bracelet? come on people…give reasons so us designers can improve our designs.

        Watch not in my taste in general. And still: the principle of display of time is beaten for a long time in others concept more successfully.
        Personally it not to be pleasant to me, and to whom that it is assured it is necessary to taste.

    Question for TF. I cant see the first 3 images on my sign in on 2 different computers yet others say they can, do you know why or how i can fix?

    Very nice design. I’ve wondered about the efficacy of the “spring band” design for a while now. Never had one, being a man, but thought it would be nice to have the option.

    Clean design, easy to read, wearable: 5*/y.

  13. avatar Gordon says:

    Thanks Xenagogue, I have seen this spring mechanism in womens cuffs done with a leaf spring. Were you able to see the top 3 pics?

    • avatar Pete says:

      If you couldn’t find an appropiate hinge, you can easily get the same feect with a compression spring and a v shape on the case where the strap meets it, the spring would be mounted inside the bracelet and acts against the V to give you an over top dead centre effect. The spring could be made a feature, which would tie in with the industrial look.

    I really like the hugging mechanism :D You can adjust the screws to make the final position of the rigid bands wide or narrow. The materials are also cool. I realy like first version most – red and black ♥

    The diplays could be a bit more powerful. Dividing a rectangle and let the several parts tell the time is just ok. Maybe you make it asymmetric by pushing the center a bit more to the lower left, or you let the display look like being broken or you blur it or add details which let it seem 3d… something is missing there. But maybe I’m biased by seeing too much new concepts. It is still hard to find such a display in the real world, so it will turn heads :)

    Imagining, the display rocks more in the end, I give you 5*/Yes for this cool work.

  15. avatar Gordon says:

    Thanks Sam, your opinion matters to me. I agree the display lacks a uniqueness. Your Idea of assymetry might be just what it needs, as if what is now the center was falling into a corner. But i am glad you like the over all feel of the watch

  16. avatar logan says:

    I agree with Sam. The case and strap are great and new, but the display isn’t as exciting. I’d like to see more with the aesthetic of this case and strap.

    purely elegant
