Halftone – Analog Artprint Watch Design

October 24th, 2011
halftone_led_watch_design_preview

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam’s initial idea was to create an ever changing display which works with interference (short term change coming from the second hand) and color change (long term change coming from the hour and minute hands).  Halftone is actually a technique used in printing.  It works like an LED screen – it simulates any color by just using a few.  The difference from a LED screen is that it’s not limited to a rectangular grid.  The few colors of cyan, magenta, yellow (and black too) are applied in tiny dots.  From a certain distance, this dot pattern cannot be seen anymore and the basic colors seem to mix to the final motif.

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “I was sketching for a bracelet-like watch with a cornered spiral as eye-catcher.  After experimenting with the shape and the time reading layout for a bit, I continued my work in 3D.  I had this image of a staircase in my mind from the start and that’s why I let the spiral go deeper and deeper in the material”.

(English) Design submitted by Peter from UK.

Peter says: “I wanted to come up with a single hand analog watch that uses 3D to display the time.  I decided that the minutes would be shown in a conventional manner and the hours would be in a vertical plane.  I looked into a means of maneuvering the single hand in both a rotational manner and up and down for the hours.  The rotor arrangement of a helicopter fitted the bill.  I then used this as a bit of a theme for the styling of this watch.” Read the rest of this entry »
