(English) Design submitted by Heather from the USA.
Heather says: This idea was developed in reverse of my usual concepts. I first designed the straps and case, and then designed the digits to fit vertically on the display area.
SLASH is a read-at-a-glance unisex LCD design that includes not only the constant movement of seconds, but also offers a fun animation (like blinds opening and closing) that activates periodically, such as every 5 or 10 seconds. It has some elements of several of my previous concepts, including Stencil (digits in negative space), Split Second (the tens and ones digits of the seconds are split between the top and bottom of the display), Latitude (flattened, wide digits), and Zag (each slanted digit is formed by a 5×3 array of segments).
SLASH can display the time in either 12 or 24 hour mode, and can easily display date or have an alarm function, as well as a stopwatch function. It also has an EL backlight for reading the time in dark places.
This modern unisex watch could have wide appeal due to its stylish look and easy to read display.
SLASH stands out because it is a collection of some of the best attributes of some already popular designs.
