Brakket LED watch with glowing cryptic numbers

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam Says: The initial idea was to use the classic 7-segment digits and take their center segments away. To emphasize the missing of the center segments and to give the numbers an alien look, they have been given a big gap in the middle and a more dynamic look. The result are four pairs of brackets.

I created a massive steel case that responds to the angled shapes of the numbers. When the watch is off, you can hardly believe it has been made to tell the time. Pressing a button illuminates the cryptic numbers, making the watch look even more strange to the untrained eye.

Brakket is a watch for those who like it edgy, sharp and massive. The vertical display and the unusual style of the numbers are quite an eye-catcher.

    Initially I thought this was a bluetooth necklace.

    I like this design a lot and I hope TF can seriously consider making some decent LED watches soon. I so miss those old LED watch designs that TF used to have.

      Necklace? Not too bad idea actually. I would prefer a wrist tool though ;) Oh I know exactly what you mean about Toky’s LED watches. Although I like the always on LCD ones, I really like to activate some flashiness too. Thanks Jarrod!

    Looks really cool Sam. ;) You and Pete always make great looking watches. Bit of a pity about the 8 again, but it’s not much of a problem. 5Y Good luck with it.

      Thank you Lloyd!! I can return a compliment to you about the creativity of your concepts!

      Hehe, yeah the 8 is tricky because it really really needs the center segment. Differently from the Chromefold concept it’s ok here to have a totally alien number among the other alien looking (but easier to recognize) ones I think.

    Nice watch concept, Sam! I really enjoy how this is easy to read if you know how to, but it will leave others confused.

  6. avatar Pete says:

    Nice simple cryptic numbers and epic sci-fi look, whats not to like? I’ll take a steel and green LED one please! 5/Y Best of luck sir! :D

  7. avatar Heather says:

    i love the digits – surprisingly super-easy to read! 5*
    works better for men, though…looks too massive for me. good luck!

  8. avatar Dana says:

    Very clever idea. I love the cryptic look and time-telling of the watch. I would have never know how to read it without the digit chart! This is a watch I can definitely see being turned into reality. 5/Y

    This is incredible!!! how can such simple shapes make such an incredible display!?

    sorry but..I want this watch…and TF WILL..make this.!!!

  11. avatar ChopStick says:

    absolutely love this concept… hope this is a winner in the design book because it is in mine. the idea for ur numbers expanded and then the common shape translated into brackets is a stroke of genius i hope u had looked at by a doctor- it almost caused veins to pop this side!! 5 star rating definately. Goodluck

    This has got to be the most imaginative watch I’ve ever seen. I truly want to own one of these. I’m afraid I don’t understand, though. Are these not yet available to purchase? Is this just a concept art drawing? Will these be made at some later date? Is there a website I need to monitor if I really want to purchase one? I would be greatly disappointed to miss this one!

    • avatar Samukun says:

      Thanks alot for your comment! This watch is not available for purchase – it’s mere art right now. If the chances are good (good comments, good rating, good feasability, etc.) it can become real. You can click “WATCHES” up there to see all available watches from Tokyoflash. Tokyoflash is on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube and some other platforms too where they tell about new watches. That’s probably the best sources. And if one of my watches gets made by them, I tell it on my page:

      So I cross my fingers and hope you too :)

    Great job as usual and a very interesting concept Sam.

  14. avatar Firdaus says:

    Looking very good, like the old time… I hope the future will contain some old good time in it. Very good job Sama+, choose, Sakura or Shenzen lol @@

    I love this one. In my collection, I have a somewhat similar watch. ( Samouraï led watch : it’s a 2×2 grid normal digits ) This one is more futuristic. I would buy one with blue digits.

    But this type of watch have a minor problem, when used outside & if you wear sunglass : You can’t see the lights that are on !

    Date & 24 hour mode can be added.

    • avatar Samukun says:

      I agree, date and 24h for me too :) Any watch has an issue, LED and LCD. Just keep those moments secret when showing off the watch ;) You have a good imagination when you see similarity between the Brakket and the Samurai hehehe. Such can be good. Makk, I thank you for your comment!

  16. avatar Samukun says:

    Thank you all for your supporting comments! I’m glad that these numbers work fine and the style appeals :)

    Stay tuned!!
