Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “My idea comes from the code displays from the inspiring movie The Matrix. I really like these “raining” numbers and tried to make something similar for a wrist watch.

The result is a steam/cyber/retro punk pocket watch.” Read the rest of this entry »
