Encryption LCD watch with morse code style display.

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd Says: ”Encryption” is an LCD concept watch that displays the time and date in an enigmatic way using what appears to be Morse code.

Don’t worry you don’t need to know Morse code. If you just ignore the dots, you’ll see that the remaining dashes form 4 digits giving the time or date.

Encryption is USB rechargeable via a computer, and has a Morse code alarm. The watch’s case and strap are made from stainless steel and are available in silver or black. The display is “always on” and is available in several colours.

This design would appeal to anyone who likes codes, puzzles, optical illusions, cool gadgets, creativity, thinking “outside the box” and having fun. Geeks and non-geeks would enjoy it equally.

It stands out because of its unique cryptic display which is deceptively easy to read.

      You’re welcome. You have done a really nice job of hiding the numbers yet having them visible – the balance of the illusion is perfect.
      After seeing this I think I like it even more than Spotcheck. The animations could be awesome with these lines & dots.

    This few days, there are some many design showcased on TF is inspired from the Telling time method like Heather’s Stencil. The only different is the design. Sam with simple neon tube, Anders’s CK12 using strips and Telephone dialing pad and this one optical illusion with straight lines and dots. Every one of them is awesome! So, this one also 5 stars from me!

        Could be. If one isn’t willing to go deeper into this or any other concept, then a bad rating could occur. But this THE blog for watches that show their potential at a second, maybe third view. I must say, this time telling is soooooo simple, once you know it. It’s so cool that people take the time to understand the concepts.

    It’s a nice design. The optical illusion on that one will not be a problem for me. But the morse code alarm would be. ( I hate that sound ) It would be nice if the user could switch the color.
