Glyph Buckle Watch Concept

October 8th, 2010
GB

(English) Design submitted by Devindh from UK.

The idea for this watch design is mainly inspired by current fashion trends and Sci-Fi.  It is also an indirect homage to “jump hour” style watches.

The main case is in the form of a buckle that has 2 straps from the main cuff feeding through it.  60 raised dots denote seconds and 12 raised bars represent hours.  The arrow that points to the seconds has 5 divisions, one for each dot in the row of 5.  The bars illuminate one by one until 15 minutes have past then it ‘jumps’ to the next row.

(English)

Design submitted by Scott from UK.

This concept was voted as one of the most popular designs by fans on the blog and thanks to your votes has become reality and is now available to buy here exclusively at Tokyoflash Japan.

This watch design takes its inspiration from one of Scott’s favorite films as a kid, TRON, and from his Pimp Pimpin Ain’t Easy watch.  He wants something that will get noticed when it lights up and that’s why he came up with an electroluminescence strip around the whole watch strap.

(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

grid-s watch

(English) Design submitted by Maciej from Poland.

Maciej says of his watch design – “My idea was to keep things simple, clean, efficient as possible, but still innovative and has a Tokyoflash style.  I wanted to create something that has one simple shape and pattern which goes around the watch without any crazy colors or shapes.  Something that is modest and outstanding at the same time”.

Solar-powered Watch Design

October 6th, 2010
sam-jerichow-Image-02-ito-teaser2 A

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

This solar watch uses its free energy to light up a twine on a transparent LED membrane.  The single vertical line goes through curves and ribbons, and forms the four numbers to show time.  A solar cell saves up energy to the battery and ensures continuous function.  Case and straps blend together making the watch look like it’s made in one metal piece.  The smooth strap ends are magnetic so there is no need for any lock mechanism.

This design is like a piece of electronic bracelet jewelry.  The use of randomly lit LEDs instead of precious stones plays with the concept of uniqueness and individuality, and the LED mixed with the aluminum case and leather watch strap gives the watch a cyberpunk characteristic.

(English) Submitted by Heather from the USA.

I was thinking it would be neat to come up with a concept that includes a play on words.  The display will say “WATCH THIS” – which is meant to grab your attention – especially on a WATCH!  Then a press of the button will display the time in an interesting way, which certainly is something to watch.

The innovation in this concept LED watch is the “Free Push” which enables the LEDs to illuminate with the push of a finger or other body part without using the other hand, with a”beep” sound when pressed on the half-sphere center (see figure below). “If you have one hand occupied, you can turn the clock on against the cheek or on the hip!” Read the rest of this entry »
