(English) Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This concept LED watch design is called “Hi Five”. The idea came to me as I was thinking about the way light falls on the grooves of a vinyl record.
In both time and date modes the 4 digits are subtly displayed around a ‘record’ so as to simulate light reflecting on a record’s grooves. To indicate when the watch is in date mode, a small red light comes on in the bottom left corner of the display. Please take a look at the diagrams below.
This watch is USB rechargeable via a computer. Its strap is made from animal friendly material and the LCD display is “always on”. It comes with a choice of several different coloured straps, either plain or with a funky record pattern, and the LED display comes in different colours too. The watch also doubles as an MP3 player.
I feel this design would appeal to anyone who likes records, music and quirky retro things.
This design stands out because of its eye-catching case and novel display which can be read at a glance. It is also unusual for a watch to be an MP3 player too.
