(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Perter says: This is “Hexcell”, a variation/evolution on a earlier concept of mine called “Honeycomb“. Both designs are/were inspired by the natural hexagon shaped structures found in nature.
The “Honeycomb” design was a single LCD display divided into smaller hexagon shapes by a rubber like cover. This version uses a aluminium extruded body with many hexagon holes in it which allows small individual moduals or cells which tell part of the time to be inserted into it.
This allows for simple idividual components and a simple watch body which can be customised by the wearer.
The time is very simply told by a selection of idividual displays. These displays tell a small part of the overall time and can be bought seperately or as a kit as per the wearers preference. This means that they can add extra displays if they wanted more info at one time, ie they could have seconds or date, am/pm, world times etc etc. The individual displays could also be a variety of styles, which could include LCD or LED and maybe analogue. Each display could be set individually or synced via a small cable. These displays simple clip into the apropiately sized hexegon holes in the body (these holes could be a consistant size or random like my example). Other charms could also be available for extra individuality.
This design has the possibility of being very masculin or very feminine depending on the material finish and/or selected displays and charms. This gives the design a potentially wide market. The type of display could be selected by the customer again allowing them to have their preference. So no-one should be put off.
The potentially simple and cost effective parts should allow this design to be financially viable, the customisational quality should allow each watch to be as unique as the wearer. So both it and the wearer will stand out in the crowd.
