(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I recently created a design with a time telling display using two or three faces of a cube in an analogue style called “Anacube“. This made we wonder if I could use more if not all the faces of a cube to tell the time in an analogue format. This combined with another idea for a watch using a 3D snake to illustrate the time resulted in “Hexahedron”
The display (LCD) depicts a glass cube where all 6 faces are visible, this display is exaggerated by a faceted glass lens giving the display a 3D look. The time is told using one or two “snakes” of highlighted blocks running around these faces. The hours are shown on four faces of the cube in one axis, the minutes are displayed on four faces in a perpendicular axis.
The hours could be displayed with one snake and the minutes with another. In the single snake mode the minutes and the hours are linked by you guessed a single snake. The two ends of the snake highlight the hour and minute.
This design is based on geometric forms and may appeal to people interested in shapes or maths. The snake like time telling may appeal to folks who like retro games and graphics.
The 3D looking display and relatively simple time telling gives this design a contemporary look that would suite both casual and formal attire separating this design from others.
