XtalIV watch could be mysterious alien wrist wear.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: XtalV is a variation of my Xtal concept that also used hexagon based numbers. This time I arranged them vertically and so the display looks even more cryptic, like an alien inscription.

The LED numbers are different because the underlying hexagons are turned 90˚.

I also tried another material: a matte black translucent silicone. A glossy black like the last time would work too of course. Like in my original design, an edge sharply bends the numbers, creating a geometrical connection to them.

The edge runs around the wrist and gives the watch a nice look. The display can be touch sensitive but physical button that are hidden inside the silicone would work too. In any case I like the purity of a buttonless geometry.

XtalV is for minimalists, hexagon lovers and those with alien ancestors ;)

    drooling 5*

    Sam, are you sure you didn’t design that watch for the aliens?

  4. avatar Alex says:

    Very cool design! Te alien symbols also remind me of the ISO hieroglyphics from Tron legacy, and could be an awesome companion piece to the Seven, but with a more minimalist design and display. Well done! 5/5

    The numbers might take a bit of learning before I could comfortably tell the time, but I would never take this watch off. Great design

  7. avatar Jens says:

    strange, sleek and sober

    Hi Sam, this is again a superb Watch.
    It’s been 4 years since I read Time “Tokyoflash” on my wrist every day, so while keeping the characters of letters, I would wish it to be just a little easier to read (otherwise, I no would really any more in time to my appointment?)
    This is a comment to those who have difficult alarm clock, like me.
    5* and big YES!

  9. avatar xian says:

    Me like! Sam, please don’t succumb to requests to make digits easier to read/separate digits because that’s what I love about this design: glyphs!

  10. avatar mushy says:

    Sam, I’m not a fan of these numbers at all. I guess people on here like them because they look ‘cool’. Also, I don’t like the ridge in the middle of the wristband. Having said that, I can see why some people might like the overall idea/design. It just doesn’t excite me or fill me with wonder. :(

  11. avatar Dana says:

    Now this is pretty darn awesome. It’s like the Kisai Sevens’ extraterrestrial cousin :P
    The cryptic time-telling is easy to learn, not to mention looks very exotic. More color options would be nice, though. I’d love to see an eerie green glowing or even orange from this design. Nice work 5/Y

  12. avatar Jose says:

    My support for this idea
    5/Y_ :)

  13. avatar Scott G says:

    Superb. 1 million stars and a YES!

    Absolutely love the numbers. I think more colour variations might help sell it to more people but i’ve got a sneaky feeling this design will be popular enough anyway. :)

  14. avatar Chris says:

    Watch looks nice, but I must say I prefer the original xtal watch you had before.

  15. avatar Charlie lecco says:

    I über-love this watch selling with the original. 5/5* yes yes yes

  16. avatar Girish says:

    Where do I get one of those? I m serious to own one of it ASAP.

  17. avatar Mart0 says:

    I absolutely love it ! When and where can I get one of those too ? :D 5*

  18. avatar werwolf says:

    why does it seem that i always come back to say something about sam’s designs? well, one reason must be that i’m always stunned by the simple ingenuity of them. sam, you take very simple, basic elements, but put them together in creative and efficient ways that make me want to scream with joy.

    anyway, i really dig this design. if it ever gets manufactured – which i root for! – i’d just wish that the dimensions are made to be rather bold and big. of course, the design works with a slim wristband just as well, but my personal taste would be to have a really broad [talking 5 centimeter or even more!] wristband with the display in the center. that would creat a lot of negative space around the LEDs… and that’s the way i personally would prefer it.

  19. avatar Ed Korho says:

    This is my favourite concept since the infamous Tron! I need this watch in my life!!

    TF, make this happen!!

  20. avatar Merwan says:

    I really like this concept, I definitely would buy this one.
    Digits are awesom, simple yet very classy wrist.
    I’d prefer it to be without tactile, but with a really discret button.
    I want it !

  21. avatar Spertyn says:

    Can u buy this yet? Really get this out soon so I can give it for Christmas!!

  22. avatar pawel says:

    This is a really cool design: it is futuristic, minimalistic, mysterious and still easy to read. I hope that it will become reality despite all the challenges, and I also hope that the final product will look close to the concept. Viel Glück auch von mir!

  23. avatar Jon says:

    This is an ultimate Sci Fi Fan Watch!! I would def buy this ! The numerals are cool but, maybe make them a bit more logic oriented as they don’t really conform to Earth Numerals that well… Still would buy- Hope Tokyo Flash makes this watch !!

  24. avatar DOMINUS25 says:

    I’m in love with this Design. TF/KISAI needs to make this! I could see this in an LCD, see through design as well like the New Kisai Spider! I’m up for this piece of Alien Tech! lol!

  25. avatar Mondo says:

    I’m ready to order this thing!

  26. avatar Brian says:

    If this concept ever became reality I will definitely purchase it. Love the look.

  27. avatar Peter says:

    Very cool watch… I love it… awesome… :)

  28. avatar Dontae says:

    First time coming to this site and i do say this is by far the best design i see and i would really love to see turn into reality i would sooo buy this :D

  29. avatar Vorak says:

    Joli, très original…

  30. avatar Luke says:

    I was looking for cool watches for myself for Christmas. It’s a shame this one isn’t a reality yet, this would have been my pick. Flawless design and definitely an eye-catcher. It’s a 5* and a yes from me.

  31. avatar Marty says:

    I really like this design. I hope they decide to make it. It doesn’t seem too difficult. Put me down for one for sure.

  32. avatar Patrick says:

    That’s an amazing concept watch I would purchase this without hesitation

  33. avatar Laszlo says:

    Nice numbers, elegant case, I love it!
    Best of luck Sam! 5*/Y

  34. avatar BrightN says:

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! would easily buy one for myself and a spare =)

  35. avatar Julia209 says:

    Wow! I would definitely like to have this watch! It is so AMAZING!!! I like the alien theme!:)

  36. avatar Metaltronix says:

    This watch is way to cool to not be put into reality. I have to have it! It’s total alien! XD

  37. avatar Darkness157 says:

    Wow this watch looks really cool, I would definitely buy this watch


  38. avatar Makkovik says:

    I love the “normal wristband” look. “physical button that are hidden inside the silicone” would be nice. ( I have a Time-It watch with that feature ) I prefer these digits vs the one of the other version. & the overlapping problem is history.

    Hopefully, the band will be user-adjustable. 5* & I would buy.

  39. avatar Chris says:

    I like the time telling design, but I like the original Xtal design you posted in September.

  40. avatar NJ says:

    The only thing I can say is “WOW!” :)
    I’m used to classic watches…But this one has really changed my mind! It looks pretty unusual but still very modern. It has it’s own style!
    Technologies are coming in our life now.So,I think this watch will be the best thing for people of the 21 century!


  41. avatar Samukun says:

    Thank you everybody so much for your support! It was so much fun to make the first Xtal so I made this, also for fun. It’s so amazing how it was recieved here. It’s so cryptic but so liked… epically cool :D I’ve read all your comments at least once and I liked to let them stand on their own this time. I’ve learned something again from you and will try to keep it in mind for upcoming designs. Stay tuned!

    My best regards,
    Sam from Germany
