(English) Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
“Spotcheck” is a fun and perplexing LCD watch design that displays the time and date via a bewildering and seemingly chaotic array of question marks.
Don’t worry though. Reading the time or date is easy. Just concentrate on the spots in the display and 4 digits magically appear. There’s also a “quick reveal” option so that you can just display the spots.
Spotcheck is USB rechargeable via a computer. The 2 buttons, located on the front of the watch below the screen, also serve as the dots of the 2 large decorative question marks embracing the screen. The watch’s case and various optional straps are made from stainless steel and are available in silver or black. The display is “always on” and is available in 5 colours: blue, green, grey, pink and purple. It has an alarm and an EL backlight to illuminate the display in the dark.
Lloyd says: I feel this design would appeal to anyone who likes puzzles, optical illusions, quirky modern things, creativity, thinking “outside the box” and having fun.
This design stands out because of its unique puzzling display which is also deceptively easy to read.
