Design submitted by Yoann from France.
Yoann says : i was watching a series on tv and i noticed that strange ancient symbols are often used in some movies, video games and other sci-fi stories and i told myself “why don’t make a watch concept with this ?”
So i tried something on my photo edit software and i found simply by superimposing two inverted number it make a cool alien/ancient looking symbol.
You will need REFLEXION for read this watch !
The principle is simple, they are 3 columns :
1st columns indicates the hours
2nd columns indicates the first number of minutes
3rd columns indicates the minutes units
Each symbol is just two numbers reflected in mirror.
Once you know the trick, it’s really easy to tell the time. The reading is direct.
Anybody could wear this watch on their wrist, i made a brushed metal model with blue leds that might perfectly suit to a woman (quite unusual here), even if, as a man, i love this one !
I think the design looks cool and intriguing but it’s really simple to read for those who know the trick anyway, in my opinion, it’s the thing that Tokyoflash is looking for.
More over the display can be adapted to LCD like LEDs.
I made two display mode :
1st, all symbols are lit and the 3 that indicate time are flashing.
2nd, just the 3 symbols that show the time are lit.
Finally i made a removable frame in shiny metal which looks nice on the black model, but maybe you will prefer the smoothness of the standard black model !
UPDATE: LCD screen version
