    Hello Al, very geeky watch. It reminds me of my first submission that use the word “day”. It seems this design is extended version of night vision for the smart brain! Love puzzle? What time is it? Arhhh… ….. YES ;-) keep it up!

      Thanks for the encouragement! You are right, this does have some similarities to Night Vision. I didn’t really notice before.

    Oh yeah, second watch from Albert!

    Interesting approach. It’s TIME :)

    I like the idea you had with the geometry. The time telling method is definitely creative. The indicators should flicker or flash, you know, like a neon tube that’s not properly working. The border segments could be arranged more symmetrically… or more planned. On one hand you have a strict rule (the letters, that you play with by letting some segments stand out) – on the other hand you have these arbitrarily arranged segments… Hm, what about you fill the whole border with segments, and where you have gaps, the segments flash. Then you would have again the impression of something meant to be complete, but not properly working, like the TIME – instead of something that’s broken from the start.

    Ok, that’s my impression. Other people have other preferences. The base idea is clear. I think with some tweaking, it could have a future in real life :)

      Wow. I did not even consider the indicating segments as broken or discontinuous. I agree the border segments seem arbitrary in comparison with TI:ME, but I kind of like the contrast.

    This is a nice idea, seems a liitle complicated to read and a little busy having the date information on there too. I would have been tempted to have a “date” mode using the word “DATE” instead of time using the same priciple.
    If you can make it quicker and easier to read somehow it would be worth 5*. Untill then I will save my vote.

    roll the points that stick up on the links and i think you will have a nice bracelet

    • avatar Albert より:

      That is a good point. I wanted to keep everything either flat or pointed, but on the bracelet, it is just asking to catch on something.

    Really like this as a concept.. personally feel it would be slightly better with a more traditional overall look.. maybe like a basic casio, i do like the original strap, just think it detracts from the simplicity of the design. Good point peter made too about seperate date mode. This watch has huge potential 5*

  6. avatar Albert より:

    I see what you mean, and if DATE was also used, a rectangular case would still enclose the words very nicely.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I look forward to hearing more from you about future watches.

    Hey Albert, very nice effort indeed; I can see you put a lot of thought into this idea.

    I wonder if there’s a way that you could retain the word “TIME” on the display but also have digital numbers incorporated somehow, so it looks like “TIME” but also has the digital time within. Maybe simply touch the button to switch from the word “TIME” to the actual time in digits?

    For me, it’s a bit too complicated to read at the moment but I like the idea of someone taking a glance at your watch to see the “TIME”!

      Hi Albert. I wasn’t going to say anything, but I created a watch design months ago using “TIME” and “DATE”, but never sent it in. I thought people would think it was daft or something. I just divided each letter up into the appropriate number of identical shapes so that each letter could represent a digit. For example, the letter “T” in “TIME” was divided up into 2 shapes so that it could represent 1 or 2 and, if no shapes were illuminated, it would represent zero. I hope this helps a bit. :)
