Heather says: I decided to try a new version of Relief that has a rectangular display, rather than square, and perhaps is more feasible and readable that my original creation – RELIEF v2. I am still using the concept of having a 3D sort of feel to a digit-inside-digit display, allowing the watch to have a really cool look when LEDs are off.
Wilhelm says: The CODE: Inspired by the combination of my love for binary LED watches, industrial art and stainless steel, the idea came up for a watch with a cryptic code in its display that stands out to be interesting and eye catching all the time, whether the LEDs are on or off, something many LED watches are lacking.
Peter says: From the beginning of my involvement with this blog I have had a fascination with trying to show the time in 3D. One of my early design that did this was called “Rotor” which had an analogue watch hand that showed the minutes like a conventional analogue watch but the hours were shown in the vertical plane. This works and makes for an interesting concept, trouble is of course that this makes for a clunky form and would be difficult to make.
Peter says: This design is inspired by a combination of sci-fi and the natural world. I wanted to come up with a design that has a simple clutter free bio-mechanical look with a retro feel that could be worn as a piece of jewellery that happens to also tell the time. “Tentacle” was the result which looks like a cross between an arm from a “War of the worlds” tripod and a crustacean.
Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.
Laszlo says: Blur effect optimized for an LCD display. Minimal design with huge signs, interesting effect. The effects speed can be adjusted. This is my BLUR concept. The upper two digits is indicates the hours and the lower two is the minutes. Very simple to read. I suggest this watch to anybody who like the wristwatch with big screen.
