Like the original design this watch is inspired by the image of the “flux capacitor” from the time traveling Delorean from the “back to the future” movies combined with a hint of Cylon. The name “Trylon” came from the combination of the “Y” shape face and Cylon like display.
Sam says: This is a project, I couldn’t properly sketch for on paper. I imagined a pattern that consists of LCD lines with different thicknesses. I wanted to create a cascaded gradient from dark to bright (or vice versa) that contains the time telling numbers. The lines of the backgrounds and the adjacent numbers should be interlocking and create a black and white mesh.
Valentin says: I was taking a test at school the other day and i noticed that the answer sheet was pretty cool especially if i could use it to design a watch, so i got home, made plans and sketches and started making it.
Heather says: I was actually inspired when I tried to read a watch display concept by Lloyd from Australia. I was reading it incorrectly at first, looking for digits that weren’t there to find. But then I thought, that would work. So I developed this LED concept with animation that is basically an LED version of Kisai Stencil. Because the only LEDs necessary create a somewhat wave-like layout, I decided to give it a wave-like animation and entitle it WAVE. The animation can be set to automatically turn on at various intervals.
