(English) Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: This is a redesign of a previous submission of mine under the same name.
Although it was liked by many, some deemed the analogue mode a little on the rough side and I really wanted this to be realised for its full potential and I simply couldnt rest until I had made things right.
I hope you guys like the new and improved Duo.
Duo has 2 modes for time telling, a simple digital mode (Hours at the top & Mins at the bottom), this really needs no explanation as it is pretty straightforward.
The analogue mode has had a revamp and I have done away with the awkward, lined, segmented 00-55 LED readout and instead opted for a more traditional method.
In keeping with true analogue tradition, the hour “hand” is set closer to the center of the watch face and the 00-55 Minute “hand” is furthest away adjacent to the edge of the display. Both hands are displayed as slightly curved LED’s, with the exception of the 12-3-6-9 hours, these are displayed as straight lines, utilising the LED readout to its fullest. Single minutes are located in the middle as 4 small straight LED’s.
Duo’s unisex design should have a market for both men & women. Its bright and bold LED’s would befit anyones wrist and coupled with the choice of easy & cryptic time telling, there is something there for true Tokyoflash fans who like a challenge and those who simply like to glance downwards for an easy tell.
Duo not only includes 2 ways to tell the time (both have the abilty for 12/24Hr), it also has the ability to tell the date, an alarm function complete with audible & silent alarm notifications (Silent alarm displays an animation) it also has a stopwatch which can count all the way up to 1 hour!
Tiny LED indicators help to keep track of whatever function you may be using. These unobtrusive quarter circle markers are located close to the center of the display. Reading from the top left number (going in a clockwise direction) these are…Date – Alarm – PM – StopWatch…or D.A.P.S for an easier way of remembering them.
Hope you like the improvements.
