Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.
Anders says: Being an illustrator, I’m familiar with raster patterns. I realized this could be used in a watch display. Taking my design cue from halftone rasters used in graphic novels and design, as well as on the edges of some car and train windows, I came up with this hexagonal display.
The display is a 12-5-9 format, with the solid hexagons on one side and the middle denoting hours, the rings around the rightmost hour markers denoting 5-minute groups and the hexagonal rings on the other side denoting single minutes. The display is mirror LCD and as such, always on.
To give the concept a unique feel, I decided on a combination of leather strap and metal link for these images. The links are simply clamped onto the leather for ease of adjustment. The skewed links in combination with the angular display elements gives an elegant, almost austere look.
The angular styling and half-link strap gives it a masculine look, so the main audience is most likely men who wish to make a stylish statement by their choice of watch. A circular variant is possible, and may be more unisex. Material choices are many; chrome, gunmetal, acetate, even wood.
