4cross watch: futuristic, minimal and complex.

January 3rd, 2012
6colors grey

Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.

Ignacio says: The original idea came from my brother Jose. He showed me a sketch with 4 crosses and I helped to develop it and made the renders.

We thought at the moment it had to be a touchscreen. We also think that the screen is made of black mineral crystal lens (just like your watch Oberon), which can’t see anything until it is turned on. Read the rest of this entry »

Tricircle 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was visiting the gym and noticed various posters promoting the 2012 olympic games. The main image associated with the olympics are the olympic rings, a set of interlinked coloured rings. I started thinking that it would be nice to use interlinked rings to tell the time. The result looks similar to the trinity symbol.

EOBOT watch re-animates classic sci-fi on your wristzzz

December 23rd, 2011

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “EOBOT” and was inspired by the robot I had as a kid and those that appeared in classic sci-fi movies like the The Day The Earth Stood Still and Forbidden Planet. It’s called “EOBOT” because the display uses different coloured lights to indicate even (E) and odd (O) digits and the pattern of lights together with a circular head forms the shape of a robot.

December 22nd, 2011

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

Laszlo says: It’s a simple LCD watch design. The time is always on display.

Massive, stylish case and strap. The position of dots on the display than the traditional numbers, except for the middle four spots. These are just a one-minute show. Very easy to read the time. The display background was always lighting paint coating (20 years of continuous light output).
This highly increases the battery life. The inverted display mode is also available.

GP race watch appeals to motor sport fans

December 20th, 2011

Design Submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to think of a motor sport themed watch which showed time in recognisable but new way. I decided that I wanted to use the silhouette of GP circuits as my clock face. The facia is removable and can be swapped with a range of facias with different circuits on them. (this principle would work for other shapes too) The watch would be programmed to work with a range of these facias. Read the rest of this entry »

Out of Order watch will trick your friends.

December 19th, 2011

Design Submitted by Heather (USA) & Sam (Germany).

Sam and Heather came up with this idea together, by building upon a much simpler version that Heather initially suggested. The original concept was a digital watch that seemed to be analog. Through conversations back and forth, the idea gradually developed into what you see here. “Out of Order” appears to be a malfunctioning analog watch with mixed up numbers, whose second hand moves clockwise, while the minute hand moves backwards at ten times the speed. The hour hand does not work at all… Read the rest of this entry »

Sequence watch is both simple & complex.

December 16th, 2011

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: I designed “Sequence” to balance simplicity and complexity.  The appearance is always complex, but Mode 0 is easy and simple to read.  Mode 3, on the other hand, is logically simple to read, but difficult enough to provide mental exercise for those who want it.

X-Color Watch Design Expresses Your Mood

December 15th, 2011

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “I combined two ideas I had into this watch. The first idea came from the backlight of a car. I had this idea about the same time when I made my go-stop watch. Here again, I am using white light and cover it with colored plastic. And this is where my second idea comes in: I wanted the plastic covers to be replaceable, so everyone can create an own color layout. Read the rest of this entry »

December 13th, 2011

Design submitted by Radu from Romania.

Radu says: “The idea for this watch design came to me when I saw some Christmas lights in a department store being reflected between a glass display case and a mirror. I have wanted for some time to submit a design to the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog but nothing original enough occurred to me so this was a stroke of good luck.

An LED Wrist Watch That Has Domino FX

December 12th, 2011

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: “This watch design is based on one of my puzzle ideas and, although it looks baffling initially, is actually incredibly easy to understand. It is called “Domino FX” because of the 4 domino-like figures in the display. However, these are not really dominoes, but digital 8s with up to 7 spots arranged inside each.
