V7 LCD watch looks cryptic, uses roman numerals

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: V7 is an LCD concept watch that uses bizarre looking numbers to display the time and date.

The numbers are actually Roman numerals, except that the V’s have been rotated to create 7′s. There is no Roman numeral for zero so it is represented by a square zero.

V7 is USB rechargeable via a computer, and has an alarm. The watch’s case and strap are made from brushed stainless steel and are available in silver or black. The display is available in different colours and is ‘always on’.

This design would appeal to anyone who likes cool modern gadgets, puzzles, creativity, thinking ‘outside the box’ and having fun.

It stands out because of its unique and easy to read cryptic display.

    This is cool and quirky and looks very interesting. I prefer the look of the “PLAY” watch but they both have very different characters. 5/Y Best of luck! :D

    I didn’t like the “play” watch, but like this watch really. Congratulation to the last image!
    And I encountered the new sweet captcha plugin… ekekekeke it says drag the rock to the ring, but there’s no rock I found diamond…. ehehehehe cool

    Nice idea. But i don’t like the wrong roman 9 as VIIII, it should be IX.

  4. avatar Svenvonk says:

    like the idea, but would like it even more if the V wasn’t turned

    Good idea this inclination “V” and very easy to read, when we know the solution.
    5 * / Yes.

    Nice one, Muschy! Very stylish! 5 *

    ^ Please don’t say Muschy, it’s just one letter different from a special german word ;)

    7 = V is a nice little twist that turns everything cryptic at first glance. I like the framing of number pairs. If this would be epaper, PLAY and V7 can be made in one! Good luck Lloyd!

    the dual screans look good on this one and like how the V’s have been angled. 5/Y

    With the bizzare number design, the whole watch look likes two ninja is communicating with their eyes! This so cute!

    And the new method of verify using graphic is so much fun, simple and creative compare with just words and numbers, TF! I like it!

    the nine is bothering me, but cool idea. :)

    I like the overall look. The time-telling is easy. My fav is the red display with the black case ( I would prefer black digits )
