veer_2

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

The basic idea for this watch is “changing the classic numbers with a simple operation to let it look cryptic but easy to decypher”.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: First there has been the sun dial. That has been mechanized and so it became independent from the sun. Then only the relevant numbers have been taken and time telling became digital. Later, these numbers have been represented by shapes and colors and so time telling became artistic. It’s time for another step, a watch that fuses all information into a compact display.

Tripod Preview Animation

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have allways been interested in sci-fi films and wanted to design an unusual alien looking watch.

At least since the 20th century, many artists and architects have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio (phi φ) — especially in the form of the golden rectangle — believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing. While the Golden Ratio is often used in arts and design, the Fibonacci Spiral is a pattern that can be found in nature. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Dietrich from Australia.

Dietrich says: This idea was inspired by my inaccurate memory of a 1980s video game called Qix, and also by sun-dials. I originally had two watch ideas – one for the outer triangles and for an inner triangle, so I merged the two. Read the rest of this entry »

wire_2

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: My inspiration for this watch is the wireframe based visualisation of 3D models in the computer.

I wanted a similar looking minimalistic watch with emphasized edges which define its outline and necessary details.
