Retro-bot LED watch shows the time robo-style.

July 9th, 2012
RETRO-BOT_preview

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

I was inspired by an older blog entry posted by Tokyoflash that used two colors of LEDs to count the time: http://www.tokyoflash.com/blog/2010/02/time-to-streamline/ The Retro-bot LED watch concept is meant to be similar to the classic Tokyoflash watches, but instead of using counting to tell the time, the display shows a distorted version of the digital time.

Turbofan Mechanical watch with armour plated blades!

July 6th, 2012
Turbofan 04

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Turbofan” a remake of an earlier design called “Fan”.

The face of the watch is inspired by the blades of a fan. This inspiration makes for a technical looking dial that kind of looks like armour plating that constantly animates with the movement of the hands.

Code TFT watch emulates computer terminal.

CODE---MATRIX-GREEN

Design submitted by Scott from the UK.

Scott says: I’ve watched a fair amount of sci-fi, from Star Trek to The Matrix and of course Tron! ;-) In nearly all of these there are super hi-tech computers and interfaces that look unbelievably complex, almost impossible to understand; yet they always have someone happily pushing buttons seemingly understanding everything?!

I’ve always thought they must know something we don’t, there must be some kind of trick or some sort of ‘code’. So i decided to see if i could come up with my own interface/display that would look like gibberish to most, and obvious to others.  Kind of like the dreaded ‘Blue screen of death’ on a broken computer.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam Says: The inspiration for this watch comes from a cylinder watch I made years ago from a normal battery clockwork. I wanted to make an analog wrist watch which shows the time on the outer edge of the case, not on the top.

July 4th, 2012
encryption_4

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd Says: ”Encryption” is an LCD concept watch that displays the time and date in an enigmatic way using what appears to be Morse code.

Don’t worry you don’t need to know Morse code. If you just ignore the dots, you’ll see that the remaining dashes form 4 digits giving the time or date.

ck12_1

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

I was reading about the Swedish cold war fighter-bomber JA37 Viggen, in partiular its computer system; the Centralkalkylator 37 (or CK37). It used ferrite core memory, the principle of which I found very cool. I’ve wanted to incorporate it into a watch concept for a while, and here it is.

Neon watch takes us to an Alien future.

July 2nd, 2012
sam-jerichow-neon-00-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

I always liked neon tube displays in sci-fi movies. Back then, when CGI wasn’t used for every little thing. I liked the fact, someone actually built alien symbols of neon tubes, that really work! I was sketching for minimalistic, square based numbers that make a cool neon tube display.

Veer – Classic to Cryptic Time

June 28th, 2012
veer_2

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

The basic idea for this watch is “changing the classic numbers with a simple operation to let it look cryptic but easy to decypher”. The simple operation this time is slicing the numbers diagonally and moving the resulting parts along the slice. As reaction, different parts of the numbers create new alignments letting the new numbers look like alien symbols. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Predatime”, a watch inspired by the Predator character from the films of the same name. This is a popular inspiration, with most people choosing the self destruct mechanism as the basis for their design. I decided to use the mask image of the iconic character for my design.

LED Evolution is the next step of time telling…

June 26th, 2012
sam-jerichow-led-evolution-00-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: First there has been the sun dial. That has been mechanized and so it became independent from the sun. Then only the relevant numbers have been taken and time telling became digital. Later, these numbers have been represented by shapes and colors and so time telling became artistic. It’s time for another step, a watch that fuses all information into a compact display.
