(English) Design submitted by Clement from Singapore.
Clement says: I was thinking that watches nowadays are looking so sleek and machined. Not that this is bad, but somehow they just lack the human touch.
My design is based off a woven friendship bracelet.
There are multiple leds woven into the strap, while the battery and the micro-controller could be hidden underneath the strap as well. When the person depress a button on the watch, some leds will light up showing the time as shown the pictures. The color of the led should match the color of the strap for aesthetics.
The design of the watch is mainly targeted at young adults. It would be good if people could customise their own strap but maintain the time same telling components. For example, a man could choose woven leather/rattan as his strap while a women might want to have her strap make out of bright coloured threads.
There is a certain romanticism associated with things that are hand crafted and this watch does not differ. At the same time, even when it is not worn, it can also be hung on bags as well as pencil cases etc. Production cost should not be too expensive depending on the material used. Thus, it would be a nice watch to have.
