Type X 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Kisai Type-X” a back to basics 12-5-9 design.

I didn’t have a particular inspiration in mind when I decided on an “X” shaped LCD display, but in retro-spec I wonder if  I was subconsiously influnced by the “microsoft x-box” logo or the drones in the “Oblivion” film.

Tri-Sector-6

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: In recent months I have had a bit of a thing for triangular watches, sporting 12/5/9 time telling formats. For some reason (in my eyes) these two things seem to go togther very nicely. So here is another version called “Tri-Sector”.

Incognito 05

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: It may come to a surprise to TF fans and blog submitters alike, but believe it or not not everyone wears watches. Many don’t particularly like them and prefer to wear jewellery or leather bracelets etc. For that reason I decided to design a simple concept based on a cuff style leather bracelet that looks and feels like a leather bracelet but has a covert LED watch built in, “Incognito” was born

(English) Splinter LED watch with vertical animating display

April 21st, 2014
Splinter 08

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This design is a back to basics LED (could be LCD) watch which features a narrow column of lights to describe the time. This narrow column of lights gives the watch a minimalistic – futuristic and mysterious look. Ideally this column would be semi transparent both front and back to show a hint of the internals and let light glow thru even when the display is off. The narrow dimension of the display allows for the material and finishes to do the talking.

skyline_3

(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was on the tram about six months ago when I caught sight of a concrete buttress of some sort, which was shaped like a number of intersecting blocks. It was an interesting shape that I thought might make an interesting watch face, so I sketched out a few ideas. None of them worked, however, but I kept coming back to it.

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Tri/5/9″ a back to basics 12/5/9 LED design.

I was trying to think of a simple and intuitive 12/5/9 watch and the most logical format I could think of was a triangular layout. One side for hours, one for tens of minutes and one for single minutes.

(English) Design submitted by Lewis from the UK.

Lewis says: The idea was to combine a simple, functional display with futuristic weapon grade design.

Tokyosky Skyline White

Lukas says: There is something magical about a big city skyline, something that makes you feel free… During the day you can see the ivory skyscrapers basking in the sun, reflecting its rays.

Trylon Lite 07

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Trylon Lite” an simplified version of the original Trylon concept.

In the prospect that Trylon should get a second chance at development I have had a few thoughts regarding simplification. In order to reduce watch case/modual size I have taken the lid hinge and latch outside of the case cavity. I have done a few variations which have their own merits.

Tokyo-Flash-01

(English) Design submitted by Jonathan from the USA.

2nd model_LED

(English) Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I had this idea while I was waiting for my oven element to heat.

I made 2 models with a continuous line of LCD segments/LED’s lights and 2 models with 3 unconnected “elements”. It’s an hour/minute watch with alarm and date feature. To tell the time you simply have to look for the segments/lights that are/is ON/OFF.
