Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “The idea for the TESSERAE watch concept came when looking at my previously submitted concepts. It is a mixture of my NEON IO and the MAZE.
It is basically a digital inside-out time telling but this time the digits were separated in an upper half and a lower half. Positioning the several parts inside-out occurs separately in each half of the display. I gave it a little geometric feature by recessing the segments with each step they get smaller.
I let the lights fade out before they reach a corner of the square they belong to. Doing so is creating some sort of hypnotic, maze-like look which alone is quite nice to look at I think.
So the TESSERAE is a watch for arts fans and of course again for hobby decrypters. I have to add though, that decrypting is easier than it looks. Actually you don’t have to check the lower half for every number, but often enough to justify it’s existence. Now I hope you enjoy looking at the watch.”
