(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: I like minimalistic analog watches. They are so relaxed and can look so styslish. So I sketched for a simple but still diversified pair of watch hands. For this watch concept I am using two transparent foils with cleverly placed free zones and imprinted gradients, both placed above a plain white background that could be lit up, if technically possible.
Time telling is easy if one likes it analog. The hour hand is bright in the center of the display and fades out towards the edge while expanding in width. So this hand is not precise at all, but that’s not necessary for the hour hand. The minute hand on the other hand is precise. The outer end is pointed and bright. The hand expands towards the center of the display and fades out. Both hands are the brightest in their narrow ends, which reminded me of a comet. The fading of the hands creates an interesting effect making the display look out of this world.
So this is the Komet analog watch concept.
