rotor_analog_watch_design

Design submitted by Peter from UK.

Peter says: “I wanted to come up with a single hand analog watch that uses 3D to display the time.  I decided that the minutes would be shown in a conventional manner and the hours would be in a vertical plane.  I looked into a means of maneuvering the single hand in both a rotational manner and up and down for the hours.  The rotor arrangement of a helicopter fitted the bill.  I then used this as a bit of a theme for the styling of this watch.” Read the rest of this entry »

overlapped_digital_led_watch_design_silver

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: “This concept was born when I toyed with the classic digital watch display, trying to make something new.  I landed on overlapping the numbers, making them partially obscure from each other.  This makes time-telling less obvious and the zig-zagging links add interest.  Auxiliary display also allow for low-tech, classic animation”.
