Sphere 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Traditional wrist watches tend to tell the time in a very 2D format, I am fascinated by the idea of using 3D to tell the time.

mechanical_watch_design_turns_time_forward_preview

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

This mechanical watch design would require a large case and a reliable locking mechanism to ensure the cylinders lock on to the correct time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This project ran under the working title “chameleon” just like my Canvas watch concept did. I have fun, creating adaptable concepts. It’s a contemporary feature because it’s fun to customise. Canvas was a relatively high tech version of the chameleon idea. This watch – Inch – is a haptical and simple version. One inch, that is the width of a strap in any flexible material which you can stick into the watch and therefore adapting it to your taste. Read the rest of this entry »
