the layout would take a bit of getting used to, but I’m digging it.
I like the alien circuitry look. It’s cryptic but readable. The tunnel effect creatively adds depth to the cool display.
I luv it Hope you do too!
Thank you Tokyoflash for posting my concept!
Cryptic. I’m digging it too. Hrmmmm… Wonder if gdad63t24t2452y8i25uoiu5iouousfsj &&^%%Y…. This one has a strong theme and has more Tokyoflash feel – just my personal thought. A bit complicated, but it is awesome display! 1 star + 6 stars – 2 stars! and Yes!
Oh thank you Fir! I didn’t quite get the gdad…%%Y passage. Now I’m curious
first, Sam, congratulations on being the last posted design of 2011!
here’s my view on this one:
+the infinity effect has already proven to be popular, and making it digital is a great twist.
+digital and always on LCD displays are easy to read at a glance – i love that.
+the digits are new, and the arrangement is new – very strange looking at first, but also very readable as you say – your animation is very cool!
+although the seconds are a bit harder to read, that doesn’t even matter because the fact that they are always changing is just an awesome addition to an already cryptic display.
+the backlight is pretty neat!
+i prefer the black, with either blue or green display
+/- i personally don’t love the straps, but that’s just personal taste – the key here is the display – if TF wants to change the straps, they will. also, i would adjust the 4 slightly just so it’s not so easily confused with the 9.
Oh NOOOOO!! Why it’s Sam??? Just realise it, I’m so jealous now!
YEEESSSS mwahaha… I’m glad I can still surprise.
Yepp, I second the comment about the seconds. And since they always change, it’s the perfect chance to get used to the numbers. Sure, it make brains twitch at first but what is the wearers initital brain twitch is the other people’s mind blow.
Yeah the straps are just a carrier. Imagine whatever you prefer
Actually the bottom segment of the 4 could go. 4 should have a vertical ending. <- A note for the hopefully future designer.
Thank you for all the other points and generally your detailed review and the rating!!
I wonder who’s design will be the first of 2012?
This one’s passing the barrier

Top5? This concept? Cool!
Still a nice watch of Sam, with similarities to the latest design of Heather and Firdaus in typography and with that of Pete in the belt, which does not mean she is not beautiful, but it ‘is somewhat in the same vein (personal taste).
I like what Sam does, so I allow myself this little comment.
This model deserves 5 * / Yes, work looked after as usual!
The objects depicted in these images are fictitious. Any similarity to any watch concept or product is merely coincidental. Yes, there is a slight parallel in the approach to these concepts. Oh the straps are just simply segmented, they look like hundreds of straps I guess, hehehe.
Thanks for your critical view and your honest and nice words and the rating
Very beautiful lokk of the future and I love, “can be a bit difficult to read”, but the pleasure of wearing a watch like that, yes yes yes (5 stars)
Yes thank you Alain!! And dont forget: it’s always on!
Loving this design! The numbers share a style with my edge watch especially with the extruded feel but with your design is a vitual depth as apposed to a physical one. Infinity tunnels seem to be a popular theme at the minute although probably has more to do with the random order of posts.
My only slight dislike is the crossing of the seconds, if this was my design I would have just had them in the same style as the hours and mins just at a different angle or something. But thats a subjetcive matter.
Very TF and hopefully makeable!
I cant think of a clever equation so will just give you 5 stars and Yes Sir
There is indeed a sudden interest in infinite mirrors it seems. I’m glad that I found a different way too. The numbers are actually a derivation of the ones I used in my On Line concept. And you will see, I’ll ride that horse until it retires xD
Yeah the seconds. I say, seconds in general aren’t seriously needed at all (pointing at the watches in the shop). Here they are an interesting looking bonus making a properly filled display and serve a purpose in the meantime (telling seconds). Having them here doesn’t mean I wanna compete with a stop watch It’s all a matter of argumentation. Another angle would mean another size to fit in or other distances between each number. So having one thing assumed perfect reveals imperfection around it suddenly. Actually here it’s super relaxed: all numbers have the same size, display harmonically filled. (dramatic pause) But as you say, it’s subjective. There is always a pro and contra
Thank you Peter for telling me your impression. And thanks for supporting!
Ha! At first I was like WTF? and half asleep, so I couldn’t read the thing, but after looking again is surprisingly easy, and very cool looking.
Thank you Ace! That’s pretty much the effect I was hoping to achieve.
i think it’s your second best watch design well done sam! i would just change the strap
5 * and a happy new year …
Thank you Rachid! Happy new year to you too!!
another GREAT design.
the whole idea of a watch with “depth” has been done i few times recently, but knobody else seemed to REALLY nail it…….you did.
when i say depth i’m talking about the mirrors btw
Thank you diclonius! I think, and the designers of the other mirror watches might agree, that this effect hasn’t been used enough yet It’s so simple and effective.
Love it! Wrap one up for me.
Although I like the look of this watch Sam (your graphics are always brilliant, like Pete’s and a few others), I think the digits are a bit clumsy, especially in the middle. That said I still like their overall appearance, which is slightly contradictory I know. For me this is worth 3.5. I can’t give this so you’ll be glad to know I’m not going to vote.
Cool, thanks for your honesty. It would be boring if everybody liked the same
I just wish more people would be honest on here Sam.
Seems they are here But I think I know what you mean…
hehe the digits kind of remind me of chromosomes. Sorry Sam I was just having a bad day.
luvv it! I really like the strap design, the way it fits with the watch is glamorous! The only concern I have is that the overall digits (or rather pointer thingys) are a bit off with the rest of the design. But still, I think it looks great!
Hi moose! I’m not sure what the pointer thingies are, but I see, the numbers dont fully fit your taste. But cool you like the general look Thank you!
I would certainly buy one or even a couple if it got built. I’d expecially like to see it in matt black aluminium as the angular surface of the case looks very “Stealth” and it would also add to alien-ness of it too.
Cool thank you Ben!! What LCD color would you like with the black aluminium?
great design. looks very cool.
had to come back and hit you with another 5*, this watch is cool, I would happily pay $200 if it could be made as seen here. YOU DA MAN!!!!!!
For this watch I would happily do the dishes for a month! lol (oh **** I already have to the dishes anyway) You know what I mean!
Thanks @ Garbiel Cool Gordon, hehe. LOL Pete
LOVE IT, best “infinity reflection” one in my oppinion. 5 stars and a gargantuan YES
Thank you Charles! To infinity and beyond!
Amazing watch! I would get one for sure!
Thanks for letting me know Kr☺sager!
Endless 5, forever yes! Black/green what i want!
Muchas gracias senior!
My favorite design on the whole site! I would purchase it right away!
I’d buy it in a heartbeat.
Woohoo, Harrison & Mdk7! Thank you for commenting!!
Thank you everybody for your thoughts! It’s cool to get such feedback! Makes me wanna do more
Stay cool, stay critical, eat cookies.
