Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: “In this concept watch design called “Bubbles” the digits are hidden in groups of bubbles. Each of the watch’s 4 oval windows contains 8 identical overlapping transparent bubbles.
The 9 resulting lens-shapes formed where they overlap resemble the segments used to display LCD digits. By removing lines from the appropriate lens shapes, a clearly discernible digit is left amongst the bubbles in each window. The diagrams below show this more clearly.
This watch has a time and a date mode and is USB rechargeable via a computer. The time display can be set to “always on” or “off” to prolong battery life. It comes with a choice of several different coloured straps, either plain or with a funky bubble pattern, and the display comes in different colours too. In addition, there is a “quick reveal” option so that you can just display the digits without the bubbles.
I feel this design would appeal to anyone wanting a quirky way of telling the time. This design stands out because of its unusual bubble display. It also has a slightly Gothic look and is easy to read.”
This fun watch design is very simple to read when you know how. If you could change one thing about this design to improve it, what would it be? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
