(English) Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: Vortex was the result of two minds coming together, both mine and my good friend Simon. We discussed and doodled one day and then once he had left I sat down at my PC and got busy with the CAD part and tweaking the aesthetics and minor details.
This design is an analog watch but uses a spiral rather than a complete circle to indicate the numbers. The hours begin at the outer most LED and count inwards in the usual manner. The 5 X Mins follow on from the hour LEDs and then the single minutes are found in the center of the watch ending the spiral.
Each section (Hours, 5 X Mins & single mins) are allocated a separate colour as not to clash for easy reading.
This design is one for the usual TokyoFlash bunch who like the easy yet cryptic display and bright eye-catching colours. The big chunky face and strap might make it lean towards a more male orientated customer base but given a slender strap it could be for the ladies too.
The unique display and easy time telling method could make this a popular watch. Rather than having A & B buttons there is a winding mechanism located on the side of the watch which could be used to set the time, keeping with the turning/spiral/spinning theme and also act as a push button to activate the LEDs.
Thanks for reading and both me and Simon hope you like Vortex.
