(English) Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: Hidden is an LCD concept watch design with a seemingly baffling display of digits and horizontal bars that conceal the time in a new way.
To read the time, all you have to do is concentrate on the rectangular spaces inside the digits and the rectangular bar shapes displayed between them and you’ll be able to see that they form 6 digits, each made up of 7 segments. The date is read in the same way and there’s a “quick reveal” mode if you’re in a hurry.
Hidden is USB rechargeable via a computer. It also has an alarm and an EL backlight which makes the display easier to read at night. The watch’s case and strap are made from stainless steel and the display is “always on”.
This design would appeal to anyone who loves quirky modern gadgets, puzzles, enigmas, creativity and thinking “outside the box”.
It stands out because of its uniquely concealed cryptic digits and its unusually busy and mystifying display which is sure to catch people’s attention.
