Andrew says: The following six digit multiple color LED wristwatch is inspired by Cam Alien a multiple Color LED that uses a built in camera to change color. Design submitted by Peter (UK) & Sam (Germany)
Karmalien: however responds to the wearers emotional / physical state.
Peter says: For a long time I have had the idea in the back of my head for a watch design that you could look through rather like a gun scope, this is probably partly inspired by one of Cory’s older designs called “Lock On”
Peter says: I could go into a long winded story about my interests in all things car and motorbike related but by now you have all guessed that I am a petrol head. So I decided to do yet another motorcyle inspired design because it floated my boat :)
One of the things I like about motorcyles is the fact that a lot of the components are visible and they have a very pruposeful engineered look. I wanted to transmit that ethos into a watch deisgn.
Wilhelm says: Splitting digits is nothing new here on the TF blog, so I was inspired to create another version of this idea. My brief was simple; the watch must be easy to read, easy to be manufactured, while keeping the exclusive spirit of a TF watch.
Sam says: I was scribbling around for a time display, that would be cool as tattoo or graffiti, some sort of iconic symbol that would draw it’s justification from the look first, then by the hidden meaning.
The idea of stacking numbers isn’t new, but there are many ways how to do it. I chose a 12-5-9 time format and gave the numbers of each category different proportions. This is where the name PLUS comes from, because the first and the last digit have the opposite proportions and form a cross.
