Single hand analog watch

November 20th, 2013

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: A few weeks ago, I misread the wall clock at work. A colleague remarked that this blog has made me incapable of reading ordinary clocks, and I made some jokes about how weird a watch needs to be for me to be able to tell the time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Icon LED watch with customizable palettes

November 14th, 2013

Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.

Gordon says: This is ICON. A watch that can be customized by choosing from a palette of materials to fit the wearer’s style.  I was going for a minimalistic style that was rugged and modern, but not too rugged.  I think this watch is unique because it uses what i like to call a 11-4-11 method of telling time.  That is to say 11 lights for the hours, 11 lights for the 5 minute intervals and 4 lights for the single minutes.
