Mercury analogue watch with liquid metal time telling

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a back to basics analogue design with a hint of sci-fi which would be easy to make and traditional in its time telling. “Mercury” was born.

The time telling is traditional analogue using off the shelf movements. This twist in this case is that the hands and markers are organic in form and look like that they are a splat or splash of liquid metal or some kind of gelatinous alien lifeform.

3Delix futuristic watch uses a helix to gauge time

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is 3Delix an evolution of an older design called “Swirl”

Swirl worked by using spiral shaped hands connected to an analogue movement which converted radial movement to linia movement. Allowing the time to be display in a column like window. 3Delix takes this concept into the third dimension.

Conception watch mimics the biological process

Discreet & minimal watch with natural materials

Design submitted by Jacques from The Netherlands.

Jacques says: In a quest for a minimalistic watch I excluded all time reading functionality from the front of the watch and placed it on the side.

It’s actually just a very minimalistic watch on where the time can be read on the side. The dot light represents the hour hand and the ring light the minute hand. The time can be read rather easy but this of course also depends on the hour of the day.

The time reading functionality on the side leaving the front blank, creates a surprising effect, compared to the many watches that have frontal displays with numerous clocks and pointers etc.
