(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.
Anders says: A few weeks ago, I misread the wall clock at work. A colleague remarked that this blog has made me incapable of reading ordinary clocks, and I made some jokes about how weird a watch needs to be for me to be able to tell the time. One joke was that it can’t have two hands. That thought stayed, and I decided to make something of it.
This concept has a single, two-pointed hand. The short end tells the minutes just like a standard analog watch, and the long, thinner end shows the minutes against a ring which rotates to match the current minute indicator against the hand.
This design probably appeals more to a slightly older professional, with its metal body, understated but quirky, offset styling. More funky colours and more modern materials could very well broaden the appeal.
The almost-but-not-quite-analogue time telling of this design is without a doubt its main selling point. From a distance it looks rather ordinary, but once you look closer there’s more to see.
