YAL watch design mimics an electronic circuit.

Design submitted by Yoann from France.

Yoann says: For a long time, I like to make some graphic creation in my free time and I used to put on it my little logo and “YAL” as a signature. I thought it will be cool to design a watch concept with it ! So, I took my pencil, turned on the tron music and began to create a watch with my inspiration.

Well, the symbol is divided into several parts :

* The middle circle indicate hours (one led for one hour)
* The outer branches indicate minutes (one led for 5 minutes)
* The 2 leds on each side indicate the single minutes (on led for 1 minute)
* And the two leds on the middle is a PM indicator.

To tell the time, you have just to count the number of lighted led on each part and add them.

Example : 5 leds in the middle, 2 leds in the outer branches, 2 more led on the left and PM indicator on = 5h + (2×5)mn + 2 mn + p.m

5h12 !

I see rather the people of my generation,that is to say 18-25 years old wearing my design. But, why not a a business leader or other !

I think glowing leds effect on the metal looks very cool ! Moreover the outer lines that looks like electronic circuit track.

This is really effects that I would like on a watch.

  3. avatar TL says:

    Great design. Somehow strange to read though.

  4. avatar Amida says:

    Please make this watch! Make the lights stay on all the time ><

  5. avatar Jarrod says:

    Agreed, make the lights stayed on all the time.. :D

  6. avatar Pete says:

    I like the look of the thing, its got a bit of a sci-fi look about it. I especially like the lines coming away from the dial. I find it a little difficult to read initially, this is something I imagine you would soon get used too. My main critisim is its a bit blingy, simplfy/tone it down a pinch and its great, 5 stars and yes! :)

  7. avatar GEEK says:

    I like the way of telling time, and the symbol, but I think the rest of the watch just look messy…

  8. avatar Firdaus says:

    One word; awesome!

    Yoann, you have a very good eye for a watch design. Most of designs here are cool, and some hot. This one considered hot! However, hope the reading mechanism can be simplified. Still an excellent design you got here though. Voted!

  33. avatar Tom says:

    Most think of a kitchen blender. Set of chaotic elements, kitschy. I do not want to wear this!

  34. avatar yoann says:

    To all of you,
    i think about making some variations on my watch, for exemple less reflexion and a black model with blue or red LEDs

    What do you think about it ?

  35. avatar Brice says:

    It’s a incredible item.

    If you product this. I buy.

    (Excuse-me for my bad english, i’m french).

  36. avatar Yogroffe says:

    A beautiful item, i will buy it for sure !

  37. avatar PhantomM says:

    I like the lighting very much! Thanks for sharing. I would consider on buying this type of watch with this design.

  38. avatar toonsgy says:

    salut Yoann ,

    tu as des photos des autres version ?

    encore bravo, beau travail !!!

    • avatar yoann says:

      Merci, oui je vais mettre à jour bientot :) mais j’hésite encore sur ce que je vais modifier.

      Thank you, yes I will do an update soon :) but I still hesitate about modifications.

  39. avatar Patrck says:

    C’est vrai, c’est du beau travail i

    Yes, it’s a great job!

  40. avatar yoann says:

    Unfortunately, i believe that Tokyoflash didn’t publish my update =/

  41. avatar toonsgy says:

    Super !!

    Avis Perso la version originale est ma préférer mais la version Black/Gold pas mal non plus… après tu sait ce que l’on dit… les goûts et les couleurs…

    Mais une chose est sur : Great Job !!

  42. avatar Pete says:

    The black chrome effect is a nice improvement, especially with the yellow LEDs! Nice work Yoann! :)

  43. avatar Nil says:

    Enorme !

    Magnifique design, ça fait rêver…
    Effet futuriste vraiment et je pense que je ne me mouille pas trop quand je dis qu’un bon nombre de personnes rêveraient d’avoir un petit bijou comme la montre que tu nous as pondu !

    Félicitation ! 5/5 !

  44. avatar King Coleman says:

    Did they make this yet? If they didn’t they’re crazy.

  45. avatar King Coleman says:

    I’m going to do everything in my power to get this watch made

  46. avatar toonsgy says:

    Franchement je suis d’accord 150$ 200$ !! sans problème

    il faut quel “rating” pour quelle soit produit ?

    • avatar yoann says:

      En général ca tourne autour de 4.0/5 à 4.8/5 mais comme l’a dit pete juste au dessus il y a de nombreux autres critères comme
      - la faisabilité
      - les commentaires
      - le thème de la montre
      - le concept est-il différent des montres en vente
      etc …

  47. avatar matt says:

    Please make this and let me know when it is available and i will gladly purchase.

  48. avatar Tarek says:

    I LOOOOOOOOVE IT ! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  49. avatar Franck says:

    Wonderfull watch. To preserve batery, you could just make it illuminate for few seconds during the day each 5 minutes for instance. The design is excellent, the bracelet, electronic circuit appearance… I love it ! I would like to buy one if you produce it.
    Maybe you could put also some rechargeable batery in it because of light consumption.

    Congratulations for the designer !

  50. avatar Samael says:

    Salut ,

    ta montre est fantastique et si elle était dispo demain , je foncerais me l’acheter sans hésiter…Elle est fantastique et j’ai compris comment déchiffrer en moins de 2 secondes…Je vais croiser les doigts pour qu’elle puisse voir le jour. Rester à savoir combien elle sera vendue en euros et si elle sera dispo en Belgique…Mais au pire , la France est à 2 pas donc un petit aller-retour à Paris…

    Tiens nous au courant , car c’est vraiment un concept magnifique…T’es un chef

    • avatar yoann says:

      Merci beaucoup =D Si jamais ils me choisisent je dois garder l’information confidentiel mais abonnez vous aux newsletter du site comme ca vous le saurez ! =)

      Et les montres sont disponibles uniquement sur ce site, importées du japon, mais ils y a des occasions comme pendant les fêtes où les frais de port son offerts !

      • avatar Samael says:

        Ok ,

        import du japon , no problem…Cela ne m’empechera pas de me l’offrir si elle était élue..

        Merci pour les infos


  51. avatar Marc says:

    Je la veux! Je la veux! Je la veux!!!!
    Elle est juste sublime!
    Please tokyoflash, produce it !!!!!!! I Want it !
    Yal-> j’espère vraiment que ta montre va sortir!!!!
    Pour la note qui baisse je crois que c’est lié à la version smart phone du blog, quand on veut noter c’est mal foutu et moi même je n’ai pas pu mettre la note maximal à cause de ça…

  52. avatar Samael says:


    j’ai regardé les autres montres présentées sur le site et c’est la tienne qui est sans hésité la plus belle de toutes…Les autres ont l’air complètement dépassées au niveau design , par contre la tienne , elle déchire vraiment….J’espère que les fans vont se déchainer afin qu’elle soit mise à dispo..Elle a un vrai potentiel…

  53. avatar yoann says:

    Merci à tous mais je crois que je n’ai plus beaucoup de chance d’être choisi, nous verrons bien =)

    Thanks to all of you but i believe i haven’t lot of luck to be chosen any more, wait and see =)

    • avatar Samael says:

      Ce serait anormal car quant on voit certaines des daubes qu’ils vendent , faut arrêter… Ou alors c’est qu’ils ont vraiment de la merde dans les yeux…pour ne pas voir que ta montre est la plus belle de toutes celles qu’on peut voir sur ce site…Les autres sont fades , ternes , incompréhensibles…Tandis que la tienne est géniale au niveau du design de l’affichage , du design de la montre , des couleurs des leds…Cette montre aurait trouvé sa place sans problème au bras de Clu ou de Flynn …Dommage que je ne suis pas millionnaire car si je l’étais je jouerais la carte de cette montre sans hésiter….

    • avatar yoann says:

      Ca me fait trés plaisir, merci !
      Et ca fait dû bien d’entendre des compliments car ma note est en chute libre depuis le début (ce pourquoi je dis que je n’ai plus beaucoup de chances)

      • avatar samael says:

        J’ai placé un sujet sur un des forums que je fréquentes. J’y expose ton projet et j’y ai implanté un lien menant à cette page . J’espère que mes confrères de DP viendront nombreux et voteront en masse pour toi.

  54. avatar Max. says:

    I hope that your watch will be produced !
    The design is wonderful ! and the way to read the time is well accorded with the design,
    love it <3 !

  55. avatar Miky says:

    Super design !!! Hyper futuriste et avanguardiste !!! Branché, élégant, vive le futur !!! Montre très moderne et bien structurée dans son concept. Leds bien organisées, structurées correctement sans charger la montre, fluide, aéré. Bref le Top des montres, Différentes couleurs de LEDs modifiablent à souhait seraient extra (Fond bleu ou vert, jaune ou rouge et/ou blanc seraient les bien venus !!! Que la production commence tout de suite !!! Il me l’a faut absolument !

  56. avatar Dianekmt says:

    Very futuristic, skirts the line between industrial and organic, so could appeal to lots of people.
    I like the spooky blue display!


  57. avatar Jimbo says:

    This design/concept is amazing I would love to have one of these!!!!!!

  58. avatar Nick says:

    It’s incredible when can I get one

  59. avatar Tuomas says:

    HEllo, depuis que j’ai vu ton Concept, je regarde cette page tout les jours en espérant que la note remonte. Si elle est produite, j’achète à coup sûr.

    Ta montre est plus jolie que les modèles vendus, et l’heure reste assez facilement lisible. Leurs modèles sont pour la plupart bien trop compliqué voir les modèles peu présentable quand on est en France (moins excentrique ici, et je suis consultant !)

    Ton modèle serait parfait !

  60. avatar yoann says:

    Oui c’est vrai, c’est un style plus français, moins excentrique =)

    Yes it’s true, there is a french touch, less eccentric =)

  61. avatar Nil says:

    Don’t stop till you get enough :)

  62. avatar maxime says:

    this project is very good.

  63. avatar kidtrunk says:

    S’il vous plait Que ce concepte passe

    C’est geant Je la veux :’( En france ça passe parfaitement c’est classe passe partout …

  64. avatar Niamor says:

    Yes !!!

    I need !

    Je veux, absolument, c’est juste un truc de fou ! et trop la classe quoi :) !

    Mercii !!

  65. avatar N says:

    Awesome watch!!! I would DEFINITELY buy this!! I love the face, strap, and practically everything… way to go!

  66. avatar Fab says:

    Hello, this watch is wonderfull, please make it ! :)
    (From France ;) )

  67. avatar Nino says:

    Waiting for it so i can buy it. Come on! We’ve been waiting for so long!°

  68. avatar yoann says:

    Yep, thanks to you =) You can’t imagine how happy i will be if i’m chosen. (i hope my english isn’t too bad)

    Oh ! Tokyoflash team, i really affraid there is a problem with the rating system.. a friend make me notice that he could not rate my concept /5 but he was able to click “YES” any way.

    While other people are able to rate 2 times during the 30 days periode !

    Moreover, some people told me they couldn’t rate 5/5 on the mobile version of the design challenge studio.

    91 positive feedback and -1 point in 30 days by falling progressively it’s strange isn’t it ?

    Maybe i’m not used to concept rating ^^ this is my first submited concept here !

    I hope all is fine !

  69. avatar Myriam says:

    Very artistic! It would be awesome if you design something for women, I’d buy it :D

  70. avatar Nick says:

    Is there a certain comment limit to get this watch published if so start a commenting so we can make this awesome design become reality

  71. avatar AcanthaceousShrike says:

    this one looks really nice. but when I see through the glowing effect and the shiny metal, it’s not really my taste. first of all the S symbol in the middle is too special for me. I wouldn’t wear it because it’s too logo like. I often see on here, that designers create a special shape and use a part of it to tell the time and destroy the actual shape. the result is just a bunch of glowing leds that only tell little about the shape they are arranged in. the time reading works ok, but it’s obvious the shape came first, and then the function has been added. enough blah blah now. the little circuits are just great. the black watch with green leds is my favorite here. ****/maybe

    about the rating. there is sometimes a discussion on here about people who like to rate one * for some reasons. you have to live with that until tokyoflash finds a better way. as long as the comments are good, don’t worry.

    about the amount of comments. there is no limit. but there’s also no guarantee that this concept will be chosen if you find friends that comment for this watch only and ignore the other watches in the blog (no offense). there have been many comments on great designs before, but they all seem forgotten.

  72. avatar yoann says:

    Yep ! unfortunately true.

    Anyway, thanks for your comment :)

  73. avatar lo says:

    j’adore cette montre. Pret pour un achat si elle est à vendre.

  74. avatar lo says:

    je voudrai donner la note max à ta montre mais pas comment faire. Mais le coeur y est!

    • avatar yoann says:

      En bas de la derniére photo, les 5 étoiles, et le YES à coté :)

      • avatar lo says:

        y a pas de “do you want to buy this product” “yes or no” pour ta montre ! Alors que pour les autres ça y est. Pour les étoiles c’est mal fichu, j’ai cliqué dessus et le site a surement enregistré là ou’ j’ai mis mon doigt alors que je pensais y acceder pour voter ! Désoler si j’ai donné une mauvaise note mais c’est la note max que je voulais te donner càd 5 sur 5

      • avatar yoann says:

        Oui c’est ce que je leur ai dit ca bug grave et j’arréte pas de décendre mais ils me répondent pas.

  75. avatar baka says:


    j’avoue me laissé tenter aussi par ne telle montre, Design futuriste, une lecture de l’heure un peu plus imaginative. le style est propre et classe. Ca joue vraiment dans l’originalité. Je dis +++.
    Thx for your job

  76. avatar yoann says:

    I thought of a stainless steel strap, the watch will be waterproof, a black mineral crystal lens for the symbol and OLEDs (organic light-emitting diode).

  77. avatar Dionysos says:

    Toujours pô de news pour la commercialiser??
    Design hors norme.
    Je vois déjà d’ici tous les fans se l’arracher…
    1 de tes futurs acheteurs ;o)

    • avatar yoann says:

      merci pour ton commentaire, essai de les écrire en anglais car sinon l’équipe du site ne pourra pas les prendre en compte :)

      bah ils attendent que la periode de notation soit fini pour étudier le cas.
      Merci de ton soutien !

  78. avatar Crazyfab says:

    Bonjour :)

    This watch is beautiful.
    Please make it, it’s an original watch but not too extravagant as many shows on this site.
    It is very classy (i don’t know if this term is correct :/ ) and I can’t wait to wear it :D

  79. avatar Aerostyle says:

    Que dire… Tout simplement magnifique et or du commun de ce qui ce fait. Je suis preneur le jour ou elle sera réalité!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alors OUI lancé la production!!!!!

  80. avatar lo says:

    please mr tokyoflash produce the “YAL watch”. Thanks a lot. A french fan of this watch.

    please mr tokyoflash produce the “YAL watch”. Thanks a lot. A french fan of this watch.

    I’m agree with this comment at 200% !
    An other fan …. ;o)

  82. avatar Dionysos says:

    There are many problems with the system for voting. It is not fair. It must take account of the comments.

    Il y a beaucoup de problèmes avec le système pour voter. Ce n’est pas équitable. Il faut prendre en compte les commentaires.

  83. avatar Dionysos says:

    It is not difficult to understand that this watch will do to emulate in all around the world and Tron fans.
    Sorry for my bad english. ;o)

  84. avatar Dionysos says:

    Gros naze Anton le tiens est encore plus ridicule… ;o)

  85. avatar yoann says:

    Well, now the rating period is over.

    Thanks to all of you for your feedback ! i hope it will help the Tokyoflash team in his decision and pay attention of the curious difference between the mark and the comments.
