(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Mesh” a back to basics disc type analogue watch.
The inspiration for this concept is the old “mysteron” UFOs from the “Captain Scarlett” animated tv show from yesteryear. The UFO spun as it flew and had a metallic wire frame look to it which really caught the light. I have tried to get a similar feel without being too literal.
The time is told by three analogue discs powered by a traditional analogue movement. The three discs have a semi-translucent coloured arc on them in RGB. The leading edge of the arcs display the time. The largest disc displays the hours, the medium the minutes and the smallest displays the seconds. The display is covered by a glass lens underneath the mesh grille. The glass could be on the outside of the grille if this was preferable. I have done it this way as it looks more dynamic and tactile.
The brightly coloured arcs shining thru the wire grille gives the watch a unique kinda jewellery like look. When looked at from different angles the grille gives off interesting patterns and an almost 3D effect. This will hopefully give the watch a uni-sex appeal.
The combination of analogue disc time telling glowing thru a retro wire case makes design and more importantly its wearer stand out from others.
