(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: 3D Unlimited is one of my all time favourite TF designs, I really like the simple yet cryptic looking 3D shape of the numbers. I have always wanted to do a design inspired by that concept but using a 3D lens to further exaggerate the effect. “Shard” was the result.
Shard tells the time in a very simple digital format using a conventional LCD display.
The numbers are arranged with the top two digits describing the hours and the bottom two describing the minutes, this format could also describe the date. The individual numbers are formed around two faceted faces of a rectangular cube in a similar manner to 3D Unlimited, the top face of the rectangular cube could also be utilised with icons for date, alarm, am/pm etc.
The four digits are covered with a faceted 3D lens which gives the display a crystal shard like look.
This design is intended as a unisex design. The crystal like form may appeal more to the ladies. The rest of the watch is kept very simple and clutter free to make the display the main feature. The display is very simple as to make it available to a wider audience.
The simple but 3D looking display makes this design stand out from others.
