(English) Design submitted by Andree from Australia.
The c.r.y.s.t.a.l watch is based on the stereographic projection of a cubic crystal. Crystallographers use this projection to display three-dimensional crystal info (directions and planes) onto a two-dimensional surface such as paper.
The watch is “crystal” themed; has monolithic/facetted/polished geometry and the design of the octagonal case and LED display have origins in the field of crystallography. The wide/facetted band, having monolithic links, is meant to impart a male/female jewellery/bracelet appeal and designed to complement the bold but minimalist style of the octagonal case.
12 red LEDs at corner/edges of octagonal perimeter are for display of hour/month values; top corner of octagon perimeter is 12 o’clock position. 5 green LEDs around centre of dial are for display of 10-minute/10-day values. 9 blue LEDs around centre of dial are for display of 1-minute/1-day values.
People who embrace style and uniqueness as well as people having technical/scientific/style curiosity. Any style-conscious person proud of their individuality and who would respect a simple/novel time/date-display system complemented by a stylised case/band geometry. With a decent range of finishes coupled with the jewellery/bracelet “look” of the band, the watch would serve as a bold statement for fashion-conscious people.
The geometry of the case/band and the time/date display is unique, simple, bold and minimalist. The “crystal” theme and avoidance of numeric digits adds to the uniqueness factor. The watch has a meaningful character due to it’s design based on the long-standing important principle of the stereographic projection which was known as far back as in ancient Greece in the second century B.C.
