(English) Design submitted by Nicholas from the UK.
Nicholas says: In a school project, I gave myself the task of designing something in the style of TokyoFlash. As I didn’t have the ability to make a watch (no high precision tools) I decided to design a Grandfather Clock. Taking partial inspiration from the Kisai Denshoku watch.
The clock face is split into three sections. The top section – twelve lights, representing the twelve hours. The middle section – twelve lights, representing twelve five minute chunks. The bottom section – four lights representing four individual minutes. The large dividing light represents PM or AM.
Obviously, this design would not be worn. This design would be a feature part of a modern style living room, or dining room, wherever a grandfather clock may normally reside. The function is still the same, but the modern style is vastly different to tradition.
It can be seen that there are very few, if any, light based Grandfather clocks. The concept of this design is individual and distinct from any product out there. This design takes the feel of TokyoFlash watches and places it easily into home life.
