Design submitted by Henry from the USA.
Henry says: I wanted something unique than a traditional round or square watch. Watching some sci-fi movies I liked the idea of a stretch/oblong face. Afterwards I tried to make it simple to read and design while having a futuristic look and have the face able to flip for right wrist wearing.

Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.
Firdaus says: Dated back in 2011, I designed this watch but hesitated to submit it to the TFJDS blog. I was afraid it might look quite similar to Uzumaki concept design. Recently during digging some old files in my computer, I stumbled upon this design and thought to give it a chance and submit it this time considering it doesn’t actually look similar to realized version of Uzumaki.

Kolora says: Looking at photos of the star sky we reflected that here doesn’t suffice? This idea so instantly was born. And why not to make our planet? A subject very interesting reflecting Earth breath.
Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.
Gordon says: My friend told me I should make a large format watch so I did. Time telling is pretty obvious, I think people with pinky rings and those who want pinky rings will wear this watch.
This design is unique because it doesnt try to be different.

Design submitted by Heather (USA) & Laszlo (Hungary)
Heather & Laszlo say: Most, if not all, ladies’ fashion watches on the market right now are analog. The digital watches available are generally sporty and made of plastic or rubber with boring monochrome displays. Ladies’ watches have seldom been tackled on the Tokyoflash blog, so we decided to create a digital LCD ladies’ fashion watch.
Design submitted by Eivind from Norway.
Eivind says: I got my inspiration from classic science fiction, like 2001: A Space Odyssey and games like Mass effect and Deus EX. I liked the minimalistic design of the equipment and different tools. The style is simple, but it stands out. I also got inspiration from the popular products on the market today, like an iPhone or a pair of beats by Dr.Dre headphones.
Design submitted by Paolo from Canada.
Paolo says: I’ve always wanted a device like the one the Predator wears on his wrist. Illegible graphics count down some sort of time. Alien numbers… It just looks so cool.
So I decided to design a watch that resembles that device loosely and counts down in the same fashion every minute.
