Tricircle LCD watch (update)

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is an LCD version of Tricircle. I wanted to improve the feasibilty of manufacture of this design by using technology familiar to Tokyoflash. This version uses a Mirror LCD like 3D Unlimited in conjuction with a Lens (3D) in the shape of the rings used in the original analogue version. This give the display a 3D look which looks very similar to the original anaolgue version.

The time telling is exactly the same as the original analogue version.

Hopefully this version will still appeal to the purists who liked the analogue version as well as people who like LCD watches.

This design stands out because it is totally feasibly using existing development and manufacturing methods currently employed by Tokyoflash whilst keeping the unique look of the original version.

    Looks pretty cool. I still personally like the analog, however this is awesome! Very good job!

  2. avatar Konphusion says:

    Right on Peter!! W00t! as much as I would really rather have a true mechanical version of this watch this one still looks totally epic! I would buy one very quickly. COME ON TF GET ON IT!! lol

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah I would be over the moon if either was considered for production. The original had a mechanical charm this one this one feels more modern somehow and more viable from TF’s perspective. Im really glad you like both! Thanks for the great comment! :D

    yiihaaaaaa!!!!!!

  4. avatar zeroastony says:

    This watch looks amazing! I would totally save up and buy one if it came in blue!

    • avatar Pete says:

      This LCD version was originally planned as an addition to the orginal post so I didn’t do a range of colours, if I had known it would have been posted as new post I would have done a blue one. I’m sure if TF were to develop this design they would do a range of different colours. Thanks for the amazing comment! :D

  5. avatar Tzu says:

    The old one was cooled, but was probobly to hard to make. I would totaly buy this.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yepp that was my thought too, hence the reason for this version. Im glad you support this version too.
      Thanks a lot Tzu! :D

  6. avatar Patrick says:

    Pete is smart, because it thinks just in manufacturing, it is important.
    Bravo Pete!
    5 * / Yes.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah the majority of my more recent designs are far more realistic from a production perspective.
      I would sooner a design was not developed because no-one liked it rather than just not being feasible.
      I thank you for your bravo, stars, yes and comment! :D

  7. avatar Pete says:

    Thanks TF for adding this design to the blog! :D

  8. avatar mushy says:

    Good luck with this Pete! My only prob with it is reading the time. It looks like it might be a bit tricky seeing the numbers in those D rings. I’m sure that’s an easy fix tho. 5* and Yes.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah the windows could be easily enlarged if it was deemed an issue. Also the depth could be reduced, I kept the proportions the same as the original which needed the depth for the physical rings. Reducing the depth would make the time visible from more angles etc. Like you say thats an easy development thing. Thanks for the feedback and the vote! :D

  9. avatar Graham says:

    This is awesome, I loved the original version but this is easily as cool but easy to make! I hope TF make this one! 5/Yes

    • avatar Pete says:

      Im glad you liked both versions! Yeah this should be easy to make if TF chose too of course!
      Thanks for the comment and the vote! :D

  10. avatar Chief says:

    The original was cool! this is also! I would buy this if it was made! 5* and Yes

  11. avatar Derek says:

    This is totally awesome and needs to be made! This would look even cooler with a red backlight! I would buy this! 5 stars and Yes please!

  12. avatar Derek says:

    this is totally awesome! I hope they make this one as I would definately buy this. Back with a red backilight would be epic! 5 stars and yes please!

    • avatar Pete says:

      Im glad you like it twice! lol Yeah black and red would look cool! I hope they make it so you can buy it! Thanks for the comment(s) and the stars! :D

  13. avatar diclonius says:

    just as awesome as before :)

  14. avatar Gordon says:

    Love it Pete, I applaud your return to this great concept

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah I thought it was worth a re-visit, hopefully it will answer any doubts TF could have had with the original.
      Thanks for the support and comment! :D

  15. avatar Firdaus the herbalist says:

    I second all of tHe above comments. If TF is making this, you must reveal the mask!

    • avatar Pete says:

      Thanks for agreeing with the above comments. If TF develop this design I will happily take off my mask!
      But Im like Bono out of U2, if you were to take off his sun-glasses you would find another pair behind! lol
      Thanks for the comment Firfir! :D

  16. avatar Samukun says:

    After the epic original comes the way easier to make (!!!) lcd watch which is just also a beauty. 5*/YES for sure. Good luck to all of us Peter, I want this one :D

    • avatar Pete says:

      Im glad you think its comparable to the original. I hope one day they are available, I will send you one if they make it! :D

  17. avatar logan says:

    This is a clever way to make the original concept easier to manufacture, and I applaud you for it, Pete, but I much prefer the original. I suspect that the original design would be significantly more expensive, but that this is a situation where fans would be willing to pay the extra. I like this, but I like the original much more.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Hey Logan, yeah I really liked the original but just got the impression the extra complication of the mechanical mechanism made it un-viable for TF. This version at least gets around that. I would be happy (very happy infact) if either were considered for development x^^x. Im glad you like both designs. Thanks a lot for the feedback and the comment! :D

    • avatar Heather says:

      Hey, Pete! I agree with Logan exactly the way he said it. :D

      • avatar Pete says:

        Lets hope TF at least consider one of the two versions x^^x, I really dont mind which. I would be happy to pay extra for the mechanical version if it were made thats for sure. Thanks for the comment! :D

  18. avatar Mindwatches says:

    Great concept, but not my cup of tee. Sorry.
    5 stars and no.

  19. avatar Alain says:

    here is still a fantastic show, but WHY TKF is lagging behind, it must sell a watch like this one, will done very very Beautiful and i hope soon to have the handful :-)

    • avatar Pete says:

      I hope one day they will sell a watch like this one, Im glad you like it and hope you get that handfull soon! lol
      Thanks for the Beautiful Comment Alain! :D

  20. avatar ninjadude38 says:

    I want to see this made! 5* and yes!

  21. avatar Dav says:

    Is it possible to integrate the 3 colors light? So we can change it accordingly. It would make it more versatile for matching purposes. Otherwise it is a very nice design

  22. avatar Vincent says:

    Want. So. Badly. This is ingenious!

  23. avatar Dianekmt says:

    I like the 3D rings, It is very futuristic, but the detail gives it character. A silver version might be nice too.

    Diane.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Yeah if you check out the original version I did a silver coloured one. This version was intended as an update of the original post so I didnt do a selection of materials as that was already covered. Alternatively if you want to check out the album on my page PF Design feel free, just click on my yellow name to link to it.
      Thanks for the feedback and the comment! :D

  24. avatar NL1 says:

    Nice rework Pete. More realistic but still really cool !

    • avatar Pete says:

      yeah there was always a risk that in making it LCD it would lose the appeal.
      But I figured that TF could choose a design and re-interpret it as LCD or LED anyway, so why not suggest a means of doing just that which hopefully keeps some of the character of the original.
      Im glad you like this version! thanks for the feedback and the comment! :D

  25. avatar MH says:

    I really hope this design does end up in production. The original design is the one I’d prefer (and would pay the extra for), but TF seems to shy away from any mechanical design though, which is a shame. They could stand to add some watches to their catalog that have more depth to them. Most of what they have right now just comes across a little too flat and boring to me. This design really stands out though, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to see it in person.

    • avatar Pete says:

      Hi MH,
      I hope that one day you will be able see this or the original version in person. This version does seem a liitle more realistic for TF to produce. I would be happy to see either version realised. I know what you mean reagrding depth, I too would love to see a watch with extra mystery surrounding it. Thanks for the interest and positive words! :D

    I love it. This watch looks amazing!
