Alternative Digital Display watch

September 28th, 2010

Design Submitted by Heather Sable from USA.

The idea came from thinking about a new way to display time as “digital”.  I designed “digits” that can be used to represent 1 through 12, or 0-9 as needed.  The new “digits” are based on analog number placement, which is familiar to many.

Which Way? Unique LED watch design.

September 28th, 2010

Submitted by Heather from USA.

Since people are familiar with number placement on an analog clock, it is simple to work from there.

The design is called “Which Way?”  The arrows on the face accentuate this concept.  To read it, the main numbers we look for are 12, 3, 6, and 9.  The watch points which way from there the hours (big arrow) or minutes (small arrow) appear. i.e. up from the 3 hour position would be 2, or left from the 6 (30 min) position would be 7 (35 min). There are 4 triangles in the center that light up as single minutes.

Moebius Ring Watch Design Concept

September 28th, 2010

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Designed as a moebius ring, this watch design has two rings – the hour ring and the minute ring.  The hour ring is divided into two helix shapes, each with twelve sections.  The minute ring is divided into three shapes with ten sections each.

Screens light up when one button on the hinge is pressed.  Pressing both opens the watch.  Hours are in blue LEDs for 18:00-05:00, yellow for 06:00-17:00.  Minutes are shown in three groups of ten, yellow equals one minute, blue two minutes.  A ‘full’ group turns yellow.

ixtrio watch concept

September 27th, 2010

Submitted by Augustin from Switzerland

The idea of the X shape comes from a traffic light’s sign (the red one) I was staring at this sign for long minutes, highly concentrated, to make it become green… my thinking slowly derivated far from the goal, but reached an unexpected idea…

The result of the 3 X and the other digits is nicely geometrical and lets many possibilities to display time, date, chrono and may be other functions. Despite a completely different way of displaying time than the classic hands, I think it is still easy to read. With training, it even must be quite quick to get it. Isn’t it the spirit of Tokyoflash ?

September 27th, 2010

This is an extraordinary watch concept from Pasquale.  It is like a time experiment where liquid is pumped to the transparent tubes to display time in three quadrants.  The clear glassy exterior of the watch including the strap presents this design in a delicate and fragile finish.  It also has a dangerous feel in it that makes it an overall exciting watch design.  Absolutely for those wanting to be different.

Buckled LED Watch Design

September 24th, 2010

Design submitted by Devindh from UK.

This design is partly inspired by the ‘Tokyoflash Waku’ range and partly inspired by Apple’s integration of LEDs into their products. Devindh says, “I like the way Apple has created micro holes that are very unobtrusive, but allow the LEDs to draw attention once they are lit”.

This concept bridges the gap between jewelry and timepieces in a “buckle style” watch. The hour indicators are micro drilled to form a central focus of the watch. The outer rim divides the minutes into two sets of 30 that are visible through pierced slots. The minutes are etched onto the casing. Read the rest of this entry »
