Gridline watch graphs out time

Design submitted by Vincent from the USA.

Vincent says: Once, I was doing my algebra homework and thought about the beautiful simplicity of graph planes. Then, I looked at my watch. And back at the homework.

The grid lines going Vertically tell the 5 minute marks, the horizontal lines tell the hour, and the LED’s at the bottom signify the single minute. In date mode, they are  5 day, month, and day respectively. The color signifies AM, PM and Date. It is a anodized aluminium body that is a rounded cube, with a stripe of aluminum going through the screen where the dot and stripe sections meet. Two buttons toggle the modes.

Anyone with a thirst for simplicity and a love for elegance, and people who like to stand out.

Many watches are over thought, with stopwatches, alarms, timers, and more. My design aims to bring back simplicity to time.

    This looks good. I like the simplicity of the design. My only concern is how easy it will be to tell the time with larger numbers (e.g. 10:50). Maybe it would be easier if you had slightly larger gaps after every third line. Anyway, good luck with this, 5*/Y.

    Minimalism is a nice way for a display, but there has to be a stylish twist to make it appealing. The display would be a cool addition to a Pebble or an iPod. Good luck anyway Vincent!!

    I like that the lights are using a simple 3 colors code. I would prefer if the graph would start at the bottom/left corner & go toward the top/right corner. I like that multiple lines are on. A while back, I saw a similar watch that had a single line on per side & the 4 “1 min/day” lights where at the the top/right corner (where the buttons are here). I like the 4 single min/day lights position. (I would have like to see a pic with the 4 on)

    I would buy.
