August 15th, 2012
spectrum_1

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: SPECTRUM is a stylish fun watch with a scientific background. It started as binary idea. 1 is an activated LED and 0 is a deactivated LED. Or you can say, one is white and 0 is black. I had the basic shades for the basic numbers and thought it would be cool to give all the other numbers parts of the color spectrum. The cool thing is, the spectrum can be divided into 8 distinguishable colors! I’m using four long bars to tell the time. This is inspired by emission spectra of elements that get passed by light (Thank you, my astronomy teacher). Read the rest of this entry »
