Crimson watch tells time in a mysterious way

Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: A mysterious way of time telling with eclipse code; this is Crimson watch design.

Despite its cryptic look, the time telling on Crimson is relatively easy to read. The eclipse ring indicates current hour and extended lights indicate current minute, all in analog +4 format. The watch material can be made in acetate (as depicted – black acetate) or stainless steel body and strap.                                                                                              Continue reading

Swirl 003

Swirl watch uses vertical gauge for analogue time.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to come up with a simple but unusual time display using a bar graph like layout.

It would have been very easy and maybe a little predictable to use LEDs or LCD blocks to do this when I had a little Eureka moment and realised that it could be very easy to achieve with a standard analogue movement.
