Max says: Loading screens are awful, anyone who has ever played a video game know how much loading screens ruin the flow of a game. They’re like getting stuck in heavy traffic. But now I realize a Loading screen makes a perfect watch.
The watch has a minimal asymmetric face, simple, yet different. The watch features a backlit E-paper display (or LCD either would work).
The easiest way to understand how to tell the time is to think of it as a multiple file download.
Each minute is represented by a file (X/60). The file name at the bottom corresponds to the current minute, and is completely aesthetic.
The bottom bar shows seconds and is represented by the progress of the current file (minute).
The top bar shows hours (each block is one hour) and is represented by the progress of the total download.
The percentage is the AM/PM indicator, if the percentage is under 50% it is AM if it is higher than 50% (with the exception of 12:00AM/99%) then it is PM.
This watch is for gamers, I designed the watch with video games in mind, so naturally it is orientated towards gamers. although I hope that anyone can appreciate this watch.
Telling the time is actually rather simple (although I may have made it seem complex).
