GP race watch appeals to motor sport fans

December 20th, 2011
GP06

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
heather-sable-sam-jerichow-outoforder-00-preview2

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
sequence-thumb

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
x-color_watch_design_expresses_your_mood_01

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 »

create_an_abyss_on_your_wrist_with_an_endless_tunnel_of_leds_02

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
an_led_wrist_watch_that_has_domino_fx_01

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.

Edge – A Watch Design For Bio-Mechanically Enhanced Humans

December 9th, 2011
edge_a_watch_design_for_bio-mechanically_enhanced_humans_blue_LED

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “I was driving in my car and I noticed a trend with modern cars to have strip LED tail lights and running lights (halo style lights). This got me thinking about digits being displayed in thin strip light shapes. I then imagined these forms extruded and metallic and ended up with this watch design. Read the rest of this entry »

Mechanical Watch Design Turns Time Forward

December 8th, 2011
mechanical_watch_design_turns_time_forward_preview

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

This mechanical watch design would require a large case and a reliable locking mechanism to ensure the cylinders lock on to the correct time. Three cylinders would rotate to reveal the time by digits (hours, 10 minute group and single minutes). A steampunkesque concept that would look incredible on your wrist.

A Twofold Way To See Time

December 7th, 2011
A_twofold_way_to_see_time_preview

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I was sketching digits that appeared to be folded over two faces of a cube, when it occurred to me that they would look even more interesting if one face showed a positive display of the digit, while the other showed a negative one. The display is “TWOFOLD”. Read the rest of this entry »

Tsumu watch stacks numbers to build time.

December 6th, 2011
tsumu_watch_grey

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Tsumu” after the Japanese word meaning “to stack”.

Instead of having 4 relatively small digits displayed beside each other, as with conventional digital watches, I thought it might be fun to make them much larger and of different shades, colours and thicknesses and stacked on top of each other so that, while they might still be easily recognizable to the initiated, they might just seem like a meaningless array of colourful shapes to everyone else. That said, the time and date can be displayed as an animation by pressing the appropriate button twice, so that the digits are revealed one after another in order from the bottom to the top.

Snake watch slithers onto your wrist.

December 5th, 2011
Snake 7

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: The inspiration for this concept is based on the old mobile phone game “Snake”.The premiss for the game: you control a snake, around the screen pixel blocks appear which you try to intercept. As your snake eats the blocks the snake gets longer and longer.
The game is over when you run into your own tail or the edges of the screen.

Stylux watch design uses next-gen tech

December 2nd, 2011
Stylux_1

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: This concept sprung from my thoughts on how to make a highly customisable watch with a feasible circular display. I wanted to get away from the rectangularity of LCD, TFT and the like. I came upon this idea, which evolved into something considerably more advanced than I was aiming for. Read the rest of this entry »

Arciform LCD watch uses classic 12-5-9 method.

December 1st, 2011
arciform_closeup

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: Circles are typical aspects of most timepieces. Using ovals seems more chic. I wanted to create a mirrored LCD watch with an angular case, and very futuristic, organic arc as its read out. Read the rest of this entry »

Tenji LCD digital watch design, cleverly hints at numbers

November 30th, 2011
heather-sable-sam-jerichow-tenji-01-preview

Design submitted by Heather from the USA and Sam from Germany.

Heather & Sam say: Tenji (点時) is Japanese and can be translated to “dotted time”. The basic idea is using classic digits and replacing each horizontal line segment by a dot. Sam and Heather had a collaboration before and after sharing some thoughts about the basic idea, another collaboration was born. Read the rest of this entry »
