Infinity Electronic Ink Watch Design

November 17th, 2010
7-copie

(English) Design submitted by Genghis from France.

Genghis says “While looking at older entries, I realized that a lot of classical patterns or symbols were used, but not the infinity symbol. My initial idea was to use one circle for hours and the other one for minutes. But there were problem with the display in the “cross” area. The solution I found is a display with a gradient. It works for each display of time. This is easy to read and gives an unique looking to the watch. Electronic ink could be a good technology for this display and the watch is designed for both men and women. Many colors choices are possible.”
