Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Trylon” a 12-5-9 format LED watch.

In the development stage I had more of a Cylon image in my head and ended up with something between a Cylon and the robot spaceships from the first star-wars films which had a “Y” shape face. The name “Trylon” came from the combination of the “Y” shape face and Cylon like lights.
