(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Pater says: This design is inspired by the modern trend in car design for LED head lights.
These new lights are becoming far more futuristic, detailed and elaborate than the more traditional bulb and reflector type that they replace. Its this futuristic elaborate look that made me think of watch displays and how this could be incorporated.
“Sentinel” was the result.
This design tells the time in a very familiar 12/11/4 format in an analogue layout.
The front of the watch sports 12 ring LED lenses to display the hours, in the centre of the these rings are 11 small dot shaped lenses displaying the 5 min groups.
In the centre of the array is a fish-eye lens with ring around that for am/pm.
Above this are a further 4 ring lenses for the single minutes plus one single one for time/date mode.
The headlight inspiration and driver’s watch layout combined with LED lighting gives this watch a futuristic robot alien look. The watch is streamlined and slick so should appeal to techies and gamers.
The unusual futuristic look combines with cryptic looking but intuative LED display allows this design and it’s wearer stand out in the crowd.
