    I love the display. It’s easy to read, and stylish. These digits are genius. I’m a little bit jealous. If this is produced in a more unisex case, I want one. I think I prefer just 4 digits for time, date with a button press. Either way, 5*. Awesome concept. :)

      Aww you’re nice :3 Oh a 4 digit watch would work fine too. I wanted to make a bigger difference to the “other” watch for some diversion. And unisex… always difficult to include the girls in my concepts. Heather, thank you for your insight!!

    Obviously we have already seen the ‘other’ watch which Sam refers too. I’m sure it will also be posted in the coming weeks. Both are incredibly inventive ways to display the numbers.

    This one is so desirable don’t you think? The slim case, metallic borders with black. The display fits in so tastefully too.
    Personally I like unibody watches & thin vertical type display, so this is right up my street, I would definitely wear it.

    The number 3 throws me off a bit, but the rest of the digits are pretty obvious. I’m certain after an hour of practice it becomes second nature.

    • avatar Samukun より:

      Thank you Toky for posting my concept and for the compliment! Cool that you see it that way :)

      Oh yeah, the 3. I agree with the practice. I have a helpful hint: the only number that throws you off, is the 3. It’s like having an @ instead of a 6 on a normal digital watch – piece of cake, hehe.

    Creative, innovative, interesting, geeky theme. (cont)

    • avatar Firdaus より:

      and stylish too, at the same time. In my opinion, this design is unisex enough and couldn’t have any complain about it. I’d prefer the screen is flatter or just as an LCD panel with ELB if possible to make it more pixelet looking.

    • avatar Samukun より:

      Thank you Fir!

      Do you mean classic LCD or “television” LCD? Cause the classical one can’t do shades of gray… as far as I know. But I agree, if it emphasizes the pixel theme, it’s welcome :)

    This is very artistic indeed, the watch design is very sofisticated. If im honest I prefer the 3rd row down numbers level of pixeliness its more recognisable but still shows the intention of the design. Another hit from watch designing machine that is Samukun! 5 stars and a very pixely yes!

    • avatar Samukun より:

      Thank you Pete! Honest is just fine, I see your point about the 3rd row. These cloudy shapes would be too messy for me. Hehe, if I’m the machine, you’re the conveyor belt of watches. Whoops, did I just inspire you with that term? Hahaha ;)

    Sam is one of my favorite creative, so I allow myself this bit of humor “I have invented this type of watch, if I do not put my glasses”
    Since Sam proposes his projects, I never voted less than 5 stars and a Yes and it’s not for this project that I will depart from the rule, so 5 * / Yes of course!

    • avatar Samukun より:

      Hehe thank you Patrick for the nice comment and the vote. You would tell, if something mispleases you right ;) I think, if one takes off his glasses, the display could be readable too… worth testing. That would be cool.

    I love the numbers, the case, the strap.

    chicken dinner here for sure, strangly enough i find this easy to read( maybe i need glasses). This is a very stylish and original watch, Good work Sam 5*

    • avatar Pete より:

      I find it easier to read the further away from the screen I am.
      Don’t know if thats relevent!

    • avatar Samukun より:

      Nomnom chicken :D Thank you Gordon! Sometimes I look at the display and wonder, wow this actually works!

      Yeah there are two ways of looking at it. The one is the “I see the pixels clearly and have to think a bit about the number behind them” way. The other one works intuitive – quick look, then next.

    Lowrez inside !

    Stylish, thoughtful, minimal…
    I like ! good job.

  11. avatar Avatara より:

    I love the idea and the nostalgic pixel effect.

    It is a tad difficult to distinguish between some of the numbers on the most intense level of “pixelization” – but you have that covered with the different grades. I guess I would start off on an easier level to get used to it.

    Would be delightful in e-paper.

  12. avatar Samukun より:

    Thanks master Nico! ;)

    Yep Ava, that’s cool. E-paper can easily let you learn step by step. Thank you for coming and telling :D

  13. avatar ninjadude38 より:

    nice design. as a graphic designer and not-quite-geek, this appeals to me. retro, techno, and shall i say… ****?

  14. avatar buy custom essay より:

    Properly composed written essays can bring people an opportunity to get good reputation. However, customized essays creating will take some free time. Hence this will be workable to buy writing paper to foreclose it.

  15. avatar papers service より:

    A writing business evolve every hour, hence a paper writing service as a key of the literary essays selling business goes in the same direction and up to date good students will order essays securely.

    Wow, how big is the probability, that TWO spam comments come to a page. This watch must be very appealing xD

    Tokyoflash, if you delete these spam messages, delete my comment too.

    This looks to feminine for me but I like it. I don’t think I would buy it for myself but maybe for a lady, sure

  18. avatar Mindwatches より:

    Minimal design, I like maximal! 5 pixels and yessss!

  19. avatar Samukun より:

    Thank you everybody for telling me your thoughts! No big issues here, except e-paper has the potential to show so much more. But hey, it was fun to show you pixel numbers!

    Stay critical, stay creative, stay tuned!
