(English) Design submitted by Wilhelm from South Africa.
Wilhelm says: The Taiko LED concept is an inspiration of a combination of Dieter Ram’s work and the analogue dialS of classic radio receivers to create a minimalistic watch with a retro sci-fi aviation appearance.
The watch casing is aluminium, housing a LED module with 16 LEDs, 4 LEDs underneath each of the 4 dark acrylic displays. Reading the time is by means of a combination of 2 binary methods.
The battery is rechargeable with a clip-on cradle type of charger.
It is for those who prefer a stylish retro styled LED binary watch which also compliments Dieter Ram’s design philosophy.
The Taiko’s lightweight rectangular shape will complement smaller wrists and it is easier to read than most binary watches, yet it still has that modern clean retro styled mysterious appearance.
