(English) Design submitted by Robert from Hungary.
Robert says: I wanted to create an analog-like 24 hour watch with hour hand and minute hands with sub-dials, but using the popular 12-11-4 digital time form. And I absolutely wanted to avoid the overlaps of the hands! The challenge was complex. The two-sided hour hand was the key.
The hour hand reads 24 hours, using only the two top quarters of the full circle. When the hour hand is in the red (AM) quarter, you should read the two red sub-dials counting the minutes (11-4 time form). The blue (PM) quarter works on similar way.
This hybrid watch has an analog style but uses digital time-reading. A lot of people like watches with sub-dials. This watch is conservative and modern at the same time. It is a typical „four-quadrant product” (like a movie) for men, for women, for youngsters and for aged persons.
I have never seen this kind of 24-11-4 digital-analog watch concept before. This symmetrical watch is simple and progressive, practical and tricky at the same time. This watch uses some twists when it reads the time. It can be made as an analog or a digital watch.
