(English) Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: I wanted to strip away as much as possible when it came to designing this watch. Hexagons seem popular, so I began with that. Then I gradually took it down to the minimum amount of LED’s whilst still retaining that ever so crucial “ease of use”.
The hexagonal shape of the watch-face is perfect for the traditional analogue number positioning. 12-Top…3-Right corner…6-Bottom etc. Each hour number “rests” on a certain edge or corner of the hexagons border and this enables the lines of LED’s to mimic the shape or straight line which the hour sits on. See animations for a more in-depth explanation.
This is a design for both men and women. The simple yet elegant styling can fit any occasion. It has a very subtle yet sleek look about it yet still retains certain out-there characteristics found in all the TokyoFlash product range. It tries not to style itself into a corner and thus leave itself bound to a limited customer group.
Its simplicity will be what draws attention first, confusion at how so few lines can tell so much information. Beyond that, the sleek, minimalistic curves and bold LED’s will hopefully keep eyes fixated and hearts wanting.
BorderLine…on the edge.
