Design submitted by Nev from the UK.
Nev says: My fascination with images of distant stars and galaxies has meant I have always wanted a watch containing a starfield with star flares showing the time, so here’s ‘STARS’.
This would be best using a real starfield image (e.g. from Hubble), but here showing stylised stars.
‘STARS’ has time and alarm modes.
Star flares in 12/12/4 format: hours / 5-minutes in roughly traditional positions and additional 4 minutes in the centre.
- Central nebula for PM
- White star flares for Alarm mode
- Starfield density levels: 1 (easy: just time telling stars) to 4 (hard: densely packed).
This should appeal to anyone interested in the night sky or images of the distant universe.
Images shown here are all stylised, and limited by my skills with the software packages used – they would definitely be better in real life
I believe stars within a starfield have not been used to show the time on a watch before.
Showing the star flares as brighter (LED) stars, rather than the large stars shown here, would be better and definitely needed if a real star field image was used.
