Anders says: I sketched an LED layout which would fit a sober, angular case. To add a bit of elegance (and hopefully some feminine appeal) I had the additional idea of letting the display shine through a panel of contrasting material, which could also be repeated in the links of the strap.
Peter says: As regular blog visitors will know I’m a bit of a petrol-head (gear-head) and like the industrial engineered look. This design takes its visual inspiration from RC car nitro engines. The time telling method is a variation of a previous design “Hybrid” hence the name “Hybrid – Nitro”
Laszlo says: The Sonar watch is ultimate minimalist expression of time keeping – TheSonar is intuitive to read. The concept, while appearing mysterious, is quite simple once understood. This unique and distinctive timepiece features printed patterns to represent the passing of time. The outer gradient displays the minutes and the inner gradient shows the hours. The gradients interact to create an ever-changing pattern that is both functional and beautiful.
Timur says: I called this new watch design “Orbit” because when you look at it – you get the impression as planets going around the sun. In the very center of the dial-plate we can see the seconds which look like the sun.
Matt says: One day I saw a Tian Harlan’s Chromachron (which date from early 1970’s). The dial is divided in 12 colors which are almost blocked by a smaller disk with a 1/12 portion cut out. The disk rotates and shows an approximated time because the bezel has no markers.
Anders says: I recently found this half-finished concept rattling about on my hard drive. I’d left it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth submitting, but when I found it there was a cry of ‘let the public decide’, so I finished it and here it is!
Peter says: I was trying to think of a really intuitive analogue style time telling method that could be easily made using an LCD display. I have played around on previous designs with rings that describe the hours (orbital decay) and others that use dots to highlight the analogue positions on a watch face (Tri-Ripple) so I decided to combine both of these elements.
