(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: I was trying to find a minimalistic style for an analog watch without losing reading comfort.
The idea is simple. So simple that I’m still not sure, if this hasn’t been thought of before. There is a ring with a gap that tells the hour. The part of the ring, that’s missing, wanders around it and tells the minutes. Done.
Not really done. I wanted his watch to be precisely readable. Adding indicators on the dial would destroy the cool look so I somehow integrated them in the ring. There are LEDs beneath the dial that shine through the translucent ring and missing link and allow readability at night. 12 LEDs are brighter and work as indicators. This way the watch keeps it’s minimalistic look and can be read comfortably.
This concept could come in many different materials. It can be plastic, acetate, metallic and screaming colorful or contained. I like the (fake) silver and gun-metal combination pretty much. It’s sophisticated and the watch can go with any clothes.
Everyone who likes it minimalistic might love this watch.
