Free to agree with Pete, for the aspect “military” of his watch, I find it simply SUPERB!
More than five and a big Yesss!
I didn’t have you down for a lover of military hardware! But Im glad that you are! Thanks for the comment and the vote Patrick!
Thanks TF for adding this design to the blog!
Could you also share it on your fb page please so it gets maximum exposure?
I forgot to mention on in the text that this example is based on a mechanical movement but would work equally as well as LCD which may add to the concepts feasibility.
Perhaps a version in matte jeep green too, or desert olive drab (I think that’s what they call it). Basically military coloring. All in all a nice watch though.
Yeah it would work with al the military livery, could be sold with dog-tags too for the full look! Thanks for the comment and the feedback!
I’m afraid if I’ll be looked as someone who copy your design in the future, but this one is pretty genius concept. Good job Pitukun!
That would be the biggest compliment if you did! lol
Im glad you likey! Thanks a lot Firfirukun!
When I say, Pete is pretty much grounded, I wanna say, he’s a fan of ground vehicles and he transfers it into his watches. This tank inspired watch is very cool. Dynamic shape, cool conveyor belt numbers and good looking material variants. The camouflage one… yes sir, of course sir, acknowledged! 5 push ups/YES
I’ve done flying vehicles too! lol.
Im glad you like it Sam, I know your not a fan of literal designs so hopefully this is abstract enought!
Yeah the camo one is my favorite too!
When I say jump boy, you say how high! lol
Thanks for the positive comment and the vote!
Nice concept! I like the silver/black version and give to you 5 stars and yes i want it!
Yeah, I’ll just get that gift wrapped for sir!
btw congrats for L-Bar being on the consideration list, you deserve some good news, you have been submitting as long as anyone on the blog!
Im glad you like it Laszlo, thanks for the comment and the precious stars!
Wow, this is awesome! Im loving the military theme! This could very easily be an LCD watch too!
I would definately buy this! ***** / Yeah baby!
Yeah could be LCD no problem, you proabably wouldn’t bother with the numbers on the underside in that case. I thank you for the wow, the awesome, the stars and the yeah baby!
I’m not into military, so I don’t like the style, but I think the concept is very creative. Also, I do appreciate that the execution is not too literal. A subtle hint of tank – with some cool lights! (And the camouflage version is a nice touch)
I’m not voting either way on this one, but as I said, nice execution! I see it’s popular with the guys!
Thanks for not voting as I can quite understand this one not really appealing to Women, Its definately a boys toy. Thanks for the positive comment despite it not being to your taste!
Really digging the concept but as a manly man with hairy arms, won’t the backside of the tracks tear my manly wrists to manly shreds?
The tracks are covered by a thin glass/plastic cover which is just visible in the images. So your wrists will remain un-epilated and manly! Thanks for the comment The bear!
I like industrial design so this is really up my street. It has a hint on tank about it but not in a kitchy way.
I love the time telling method, its new yet familier and very intuative. I agree with DW that it could be easily made as an LCD without losing the effect. 5 stars/Yes from me!
I was worried when I submitted this design that it would be a bit much (like a few of my older submissions) so far it seems pretty well recieved. Im glad you like the idustrial look. Thanks for the feedback and the vote!
This is a bit big and masculin to suit a ladies wrist but would make a great gift for a man.
5 stars and Yes on that basis.
It would be no problem to slim the watch down and make the proportions suitable for a smaller wrist but the nature of the concpet means that it would always look masculin. Thank you for the positive vote considering it wouldnt be suitable for yourself!
this one is bad ***. ….. I love it. 5 stars and yes.
hehe Thanks for the bad *** comment Gabriel!
I dont know what youve been doing pete…but nowadays..every watch u design is a master peice!!! it is only a matter of time before i am able to buy one hehehe
hehe thanks Jun! I hope you are right and get the chance! lol
Thanks as ever for the epic comment!
Nice one, well done Pete. Love the idea and I like the mechanical angle you’ve taken. Your renderings just get better & better.
Thank you very much Avatara! practice makes perfect! still some way to go tho!
Thanks for the compliment and the comment!
good work pete i have considered a belt display but you brought it to reality, 5*
Thanks a lot Gordon, Im sure there are still plenty of good belt based concepts out there.
I thank you for your comment and your five!
awesome! maybe change the fonts into something a bit more fitting, like the STENCIL font of word which looks very militaristic, anyways 5 and a big YES
Yeah the font could be more militarian, on the mark I version which didnt get on the blog I used a more appropiate font but was less clear. But there maybe other fonts which are more appropiate and clear like you say.
Thanks for the feedback, comment and the big yes!
Good job Pete! 5Y
Im glad you like it, thanks for the comment of the vote Mushy!
недорого аттракцион родео на быке аренда в Киеве
That’s “vroom vrooooooom” in russian I think. Yep, agreed.
Great design, watch looks every bit as unique as one would expect from tokyo flash
just a question, would the back be covered in a perspex so you dont have the trax rubbing against your skin??
Hi Rodger, I’m gald you like the concept. To answer your question there is a thin plastic/glass cover over the trax, it’s most visible in the two images where the watch is on it side, this stops anything interfering with the movement of the trax and the user losing arm hair. Thanks for the feedback and the comment.
love the concept… shared on fb…
Im glad you like it, thanks for sharing!
You are a rising star to be man. Before i saw your work i tought the g shock models was cool. Now that I have seen your desings. The g chock looks like somethings made in the stone age. I hope you get richer than the rolex companie
Crikey thats a huge compliment! Im glad you like the concept. To have one of my designs made would be a dream come true! Thanks for the epic comment and interest in my design!
Powered by mechanical movement, you mean kinetic energy? Is there any alarm/date feature on this watch?
Hi ID, when I mentioned mechanical movement I ment a traditional analogue movement (which could be a kinietic powered movement). If this design was powered by a analogue movement it would be difficult to display the date without adding more belts/tracks for the date. If it was powered by digital motors you could in theory have a date mode using the existing belts/tracks.
I hope this answers your question, thanks for taking interest in my design and thank you for the comment!
This is the greatest watch i ever saw. I want to be One of the First German Guy that geht’s this watch ! Great Design. So let me know when i can get it.
Hi Simon, I hope you get the chance one day to be the first to recieve this watch! Its very much in TF’s hands at the moment, if it gets more comments like your’s it may stand a chance. Thanks for the epic comment!
Cool concept. Not like the 4 but still a great watch. The camo is really unique
Im glad you like it Ari, thanks for the comment!
Do you know, if there is Chance that this watch will be produced? Or what do u thnk, will the Dream come true ?
I really wish I knew, only TF have any knowledge of their plans.
I would hope it stands a chance as it has been well recieved, has had plenty of interest on the external blogs etc and has a reasonable rating. I have my fingers crossed that TF see some potential x^^x
Thanks for the support, I appreciate it!
I see a strong resemblance: http://watchismo.blogspot.com/2009/03/opus-9-revealed-today-at-baselworld.html
Wow thats cool, I hadn’t seen that one before buts its awesome. That shows im on the rights “trax” lol
Thanks for the comment!
Good luck Pete on this one. For some reason I was able to vote again even though it didn’t chance the number.
Vroomvroom, impressive shares That’s a good sign. Good luck from me too!
Hi Sam, yeah this one has really done the rounds on the external blogs. Hopefully this will have a positive effect on TF’s decision making. Thanks for the comment!
