Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: Ive had this design in my Sketch-Pad for a while & cant remember how it originated, it probably started off as a hexagon and evolved from that. I may have been watching something on TV about germs or Micro-Organisms which influenced the design.
Microbe is a simple analogue watch at heart. The hours are found around the outer edge, moving clockwise…12 at the top, 1 at the corner, 2 on the straight edge, 3 on the corner etc…
The organism hatches from the center where the single minutes are, and it worms its way across the watch face until it finds or points to the relevant hour.
Where it hatches from is an indicator of the 10 x Mins too…depending on which edge of the inner hexagon it pops out from.
People who work in labs might find this one amusing although id hope its appeal would reach further than that due to its futuristic looks, sleek metal strap & mirrored watch face.
Ive never seen an organic take on time telling done in such a way. The always on LCD display would mean that as each second passes the “Microbe” could wriggle and slither about whilst still pointing to the correct time. The mirrored screen would also add to the flashy look which is typical of TokyoFlash wrist-wear.
Get infected with a Microbe!
UPDATE: Some additional images exploring alternative time telling methods.
