(English) Design submitted by Andrew from the Netherlands.
Andrew says: Because I have always been fascinated with watches, I decided to try my hand at designing one myself. I really wanted to create something unique, that hasn’t already been done like a million times before. That’s when I came up with Eclipse. You can watch a small motion graphic about it here: https://vimeo.com/70057038
Eclipse is not just a digital watch, it’s a fully customizable and user friendly watch. Users can choose the colors of their watchbands and body separately and can even customize their watchfaces to match. The watch faces are displayed via an OLED screen and can be created and uploaded by users to their own Eclipse watches.
This design will appeal mainly young and ‘hip’ people, who want to identify themselves with style and personality. It’s the crowd that definitely doesn’t want to just go with the flow and do what everyone else is doing. It’s the crowd that wants to stand out, that wants to show the world who they are.
The fact that you can customize every aspect of the watch, and the way you can detach your watch body from the watch band, to be able to change it on the fly is pretty unique. Thanks to the overall design of the watch, it can be easily customized and would be able to fit pretty much anyone. It’s a watch designed for everybody.
