(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I really have a fondness for LED watches and the sense of depth and mystery the displays can give you. LCD or TFT rely on the graphics or shapes of the blocks to create a feeling of depth. The trouble with deep looking displays is they tend to make for a deep watch which isn’t always appealing to all.
So I started thinking about a “Driver” style watch that would make enough room for the electronics and deep looking display but keep a relatively low profile. I decided I wanted to make a futuristic watch with a triangular display which looked somewhere between a robot’s face, a spaceship and a cryogenic pod…..”Stasis Module” was born.
The time is told by a triangular shaped array of LEDs at the front of the watch framed by a chunky looking triangular bezel. The array of LEDs could describe the time in either 12-5-9 format of in phased cryptic looking digits. The LEDs would also be able to perform a selection of funky animations and occasionally blink as if it were alive. Ideally these LEDs would be multi-coloured allowing the wearer to choose their favourite. The case also features decorative LEDs which come on when the display is in use.
This design has a futuristic look and an engineered feel. It is chunky in its design language but small enough to fit the majority of wrists. The display has a deep and mystical look which uses recognisable formats that should make it accessible to a wider audience.
The “Driver” style layout and futuristic looks sets this design from others. The two time displaying styles combined with customisable LED colours helps the wearer stand out from the crowd.
