Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Tsumu” after the Japanese word meaning “to stack”.
Instead of having 4 relatively small digits displayed beside each other, as with conventional digital watches, I thought it might be fun to make them much larger and of different shades, colours and thicknesses and stacked on top of each other so that, while they might still be easily recognizable to the initiated, they might just seem like a meaningless array of colourful shapes to everyone else. That said, the time and date can be displayed as an animation by pressing the appropriate button twice, so that the digits are revealed one after another in order from the bottom to the top.
The strap is made from a man-made material and there are 2 buttons for displaying the time and date. The watch is USB rechargeable via a computer.
Anyone who likes retro and modern looking watches and maybe wants to wear something a little bit different.
This idea is original and would be easy to make in all sorts of colours.
