Spiraling LED Watch Design

September 26th, 2011

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “I was sketching for a bracelet-like watch with a cornered spiral as eye-catcher.  After experimenting with the shape and the time reading layout for a bit, I continued my work in 3D.  I had this image of a staircase in my mind from the start and that’s why I let the spiral go deeper and deeper in the material”.

Segmental – Always On Digital Watch Design

September 20th, 2011

(English) Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: “I was trying to find a way to make new, interesting looking digits, and I came up with the idea of starting with a rectangle, and drawing in some line segments and dots to give the idea of the digits 0-9.  I arranged the digits into 4 quadrants, with line segments connecting them, and noticed that making them not go all the way to the edge of the display plays tricks on the eye.  Looking at the watch at first, it appears to be some line segments and dots, while in fact, if you read the background instead, it is quite easy to read the time digitally”.

Rotor Analog Watch Design

September 15th, 2011

(English) Design submitted by Peter from UK.

Peter says: “I wanted to come up with a single hand analog watch that uses 3D to display the time.  I decided that the minutes would be shown in a conventional manner and the hours would be in a vertical plane.  I looked into a means of maneuvering the single hand in both a rotational manner and up and down for the hours.  The rotor arrangement of a helicopter fitted the bill.  I then used this as a bit of a theme for the styling of this watch.” Read the rest of this entry »

Overlapped Digital LED Watch Design

September 8th, 2011

(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: “This concept was born when I toyed with the classic digital watch display, trying to make something new.  I landed on overlapping the numbers, making them partially obscure from each other.  This makes time-telling less obvious and the zig-zagging links add interest.  Auxiliary display also allow for low-tech, classic animation”.
