(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: The basic idea for Genesis is a molecular looking displaying method made of sticks and dots.
The display consists of a string made of sticks connecting big dots. This string is placed on a hexagon that has to be seen as an analog watch display. Each big dot represents the analog watch marker position of hours and five-minute-increments.
The end dots of the string are important. They show either the current hour or the current five-minute-increment while the dots in between are there to create the molecular look. There is a smaller stick-and-dot placed at each end dot that helps distinguishing the marker types. If the small stick is OUtside the hexagon, it indicates the hOUr end of the string. The other stick is automatically INside the hexagon, indicating the mINute end of the string.
The PM indicator is another stick-and-dot connected to the hour indicator. The additional minutes to tell the time precisely are one, two, three or four stick-and-dots connected to the minute indicator inside the hexagon.
I like the various different types of displays of this concept. They can be short or long, simple or complex. I also like the different ways you can see the display – as classic stick-and-dot model for molecules, as metro plan or as some circuitry. Everything started small and developed. This is Genesis, a watch for bionic and biomemetics fans.
