sam-jerichow-betadecay-00-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam Says: I was experimenting with hexagon based numbers that are derived from the classic 7-segment-digits everybody knows. There were many ways to do it and one of them strongly resembled the radioactive sign. I played around with the time display and saw, displaying all four numbers next to each other doesn’t look good and would take the iconic expression away from them. So I decided to use a phased display like the Denshoku, displaying one number at a time. That way, each number comes into it’s own.

May 9th, 2012
sam-jerichow-peter-fletcher-camalien-00-preview

Design submitted by Peter (UK) & Sam (Germany)

Peter & Sam say: The initial idea for Camalien was a watch that changes its colour with the mood of the wearer. But mood is an abstract thing that could be dozens of measurable things in reality. We kept the colour changing aspect and gave the watch a camera.
The display of Camalien reacts to the environment like a chameleon. Read the rest of this entry »

May 7th, 2012
inside-out_preview

Design submitted by Heather from the USA

Heather says: After designing the digits for my n-gon display concept, I found that I could make digits similar to those that would stack well, since they have no middle.

I thought it would be fun to have the time read from the inside-out, since it allows a changing look to the display every minute, and because it allows for a descriptive and catchy name, “Inside-out”. Read the rest of this entry »

sam-jerichow-gravitiy-00-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Design submitted by Ron from the Netherlands.

Ron says: I wanted a cool bracelet which at first doesn’t look like a watch. It should off course also be a watch, but if you see the bracelet nothing would make it look like a watch. So no circular shapes and no watch-like band. Read the rest of this entry »
