Sphere watch rotates the time in 3D

January 24th, 2012
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. I decided to use a sphere as it is about as 3D as it gets, also a sphere is omni-directional which lends it self to telling the time using more than one axis. Read the rest of this entry »

December 21st, 2011
Stylux2_1

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Earlier this month we saw the imaginative Stylux watch from Anders that used a combination of laser & phosphorescent ink to ‘draw’ the time. He has updated the design using less advanced technology, which could be more realistic to produce. Read the rest of this entry »

December 8th, 2011
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. Three cylinders would rotate to reveal the time by digits (hours, 10 minute group and single minutes). A steampunkesque concept that would look incredible on your wrist.

Magnetic INCH watch: Customise your own design.

November 29th, 2011
sam-jerichow-INCH-01-preview

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 »

Trio watch design puts time-telling into gear.

November 7th, 2011
trio_full_1

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was trying to find something new, thinking about ratios of rotation for each hand. An image of three sprockets came to mind, each with a ratio of 60:61 relative to the one before. Thus the minute hand rotates one revolution more than the second hand every minute. Read the rest of this entry »

Retro Flip watch adds some 70s charm to your wrist.

November 4th, 2011
orange-retro

Design Submitted by Gordon from the USA.

A very pleasing atheistic to this watch we felt. Although not the norm for TF designs, we couldn’t resist the satisfying feeling that flip action would give as the minutes topple over.

Plenty of style variations to see in this submission. Read the rest of this entry »

Arcane Orbit watch uses symbols to tell the time

November 3rd, 2011
Arcane Orbit 03

Design Submitted by Peter from the UK.

Halftone – Analog Artprint Watch Design

October 24th, 2011
halftone_led_watch_design_preview

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.

no_sun_dial_watch_design_preview

Design submitted by Peter from UK.

The idea for this watch design was based on traditional sundials and the lack of sun in the UK.   Peter thought that it would be novel to replace the light source but use the traditional method of telling the time using shadows. Read the rest of this entry »
