Crimson watch tells time in a mysterious way

(English) Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: A mysterious way of time telling with eclipse code; this is Crimson watch design.

Despite its cryptic look, the time telling on Crimson is relatively easy to read. The eclipse ring indicates current hour and extended lights indicate current minute, all in analog +4 format. The watch material can be made in acetate (as depicted – black acetate) or stainless steel body and strap.                                                                                             

People who have interest in cryptic symbolism, mystery and art would  love this design.

This design can be achieved using LED technology and I believe it is suitable to fit in TF product line.

    Wow your design looks absolutely gorgeous. It brings both class and style to one piece and looks ready to be made.

    Cool! It’s a nifty little design; easy enough to read, but unique enough to attract a little attention. But what happens when minutes == hours? Such as at 12:00, 1:05, 9:45, etc.

      Hello injust thank you for your time commenting. At time such as 12:00 and 1:05 etc, it would look almost exactly as depicted in silver+blue LEDs version on cover page, which shows 2:10pm. I think it is still cool! Please let me know if you need more example. Cheers and have a nice day!

    Hi Firdaus, very beautiful watch, superb design, one would say that it is already with the sale.
    5* and large Yes!

    Mmmm a yummy creamsun! I love this one! I might have to change a concept I’m working on :P But I would really like to have this beauty. The time display looks fantastic! I would like to see times like 3:15 or 6:27 and hope it still looks great, when the big beam hits the gap. I think so. 5*/YES

    Thanks Toky for posting this design. Also thanks to voters and haters, I’m in positive mood, so all is okay!

    For those who interested, I have an ultra short video animation of the display. YOU CAN WATCH IT HERE .

    Cheers and have a great day everyone!

    Stellar (hehe) work there, Firdaus. It looks like you’ve hit the sweet spot between readable, cryptic and make-able. Plus it looks really very nice indeed. =) Good luck!

    Very Nice Fir!
    For me like Anders says it really strikes the right balance between crypticness, readibility, makeability and wantability! 5ability and Yesability! :D

    It still looks good when the “minutes” are in the gap, like your 2:10 and 6:27 examples, but is even better when they don’t, which is a lot of the time (55 minutes out of every hour).
    I would definitely want to add one of these to my watch collection, the problem being deciding which colour combination to buy. An easy 5*/Y

    • avatar Firdaus-kun より:

      Hi Nev thanks for that insight. Yup would agree, perhaps that gap would look like special event is the series of cryptography or special message in the crop circle (such as missing link)… Cheers for the wish and have a nice day or night!

  14. avatar Pete より:

    Nice to see a Fir design getting a well deserved decent rating for a change! Best of luck sir! ;)

    Simply Stunning, I would buy 2 in multiple colors. Best of luck to FK.

    I like the idea. The display would always be interesting. (It remind me of a concept I did, which was using a similar display, with e-paper tech, for the hour & hands for the minutes/seconds. In the near future, I’ll redo it with LCD screen)
