May 9th, 2013
Excelsior-01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have submitted a few analogue designs in the past and most were perhaps a little too imaginative. They tended to be technically un-feasible and required expensive bespoke mechanisms to allow them to work. For this concept I decided to go back to basics and use a traditional disc style analogue time telling using similar construction to “Uzumaki”

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I was sketching for an analog based sci-fi E-paper display based on half circles. I took the advantage of E-paper towards LCD to hide and create display gaps whenever pleasing. So I created these half circle segments whose repetition, the echoing, has a deeper meaning for the time telling. Read the rest of this entry »

(English) Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.

Ignacio says: This is a redesign of my first idea published on tokyoflash blog, Ronu. I always loved my first idea, but in 2011 (the year I designed it), I had no idea of 3D, as you can see. It’s some ugly the design I did, isn’t?

That’s why I redesign it, trying to do the best I know to date, trying to refresh it, to upgrade it.

(English) Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: GAMERZ watch design is inspired by gaming rigs; those gaming PC case, gaming notebook, gaming mouse & keyboard etc. It is a combination of LCD and LED time telling in a watch. On idle (LCD) mode, user can tell the time without pressing a button as the time is always on. This is very useful when on driving or during outdoor under direct sunlight. Indoor and during night time, the hybrid (LCD+LED) mode will make the watch more appealing to enjoy.

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: A lot of watches have a bezel, some have it for practical reasons like for measuring a set period of time. Most however are just a styling element. The nice thing with most is that they often add a little detail and a tactile quality. I decided to use the bezel as the time telling feature of this design.

Anacube 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Since my participation in the blog I have had a few ideas for watch design inspired by cube like forms. 3D Unlimited is one of my favourite TF designs and I love the simple but cryptic looking geometry. I have often thought it would be great if it was possible to create an analogue version. “Anacube” was the result. This design also takes a few cues form the internationally recognised puzzle “Rubik” cube.
