(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: It may come to a surprise to TF fans and blog submitters alike, but believe it or not not everyone wears watches. Many don’t particularly like them and prefer to wear jewellery or leather bracelets etc. For that reason I decided to design a simple concept based on a cuff style leather bracelet that looks and feels like a leather bracelet but has a covert LED watch built in, “Incognito” was born
I have created a few simple examples of what a time smuggling bracelet may look like.
My thoughts are that the bracelet could be made of leather, carbon fibre effect leather, faux leather or maybe rubber like materials. The bracelet would feature bold stitching and simple press stud fastenings. The watch modual would be hidden inside the bracelet with no obvious external signs. The LEDs would protrude through the leather to imitate the stitching so would be invisble to the un-intiated. Its only when the display is activated that all is revealed. The buttons would be on the front of the module under the leather and you would simple press malleable areas on the front of the bracelet to activate time or settings
For my examples I have illustrated two 12/5/9 style formats and an analogue format not dissimilar to “seven’s” time telling. Digital formats would also be possible with this style of concept.
This concept may appeal to people who wouldn’t normally wear a watch, people who like casual jewellery and leather products. Such a concept may also appeal to people who like out-door persuits like surfers and skateboarders etc.
The leather bracelet inspiration and covert time telling makes this design stand out from the more conventional.
