Crimson watch tells time in a mysterious way

Design submitted by Firdaus from Malaysia.

Firdaus says: A mysterious way of time telling with eclipse code; this is Crimson watch design.

Despite its cryptic look, the time telling on Crimson is relatively easy to read. The eclipse ring indicates current hour and extended lights indicate current minute, all in analog +4 format. The watch material can be made in acetate (as depicted – black acetate) or stainless steel body and strap.                                                                                              Continue reading

Single hand analog watch

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: A few weeks ago, I misread the wall clock at work. A colleague remarked that this blog has made me incapable of reading ordinary clocks, and I made some jokes about how weird a watch needs to be for me to be able to tell the time. One joke was that it can’t have two hands. That thought stayed, and I decided to make something of it.

Unary version of telling time

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This is a very simple idea this time. I thought about letting tally mark numbers tell the time and instantly wanted it to be on an e-paper display – thin, white, simple. I’m not sure about how the watch should look like. There shoudn’t be too much details to leave space for own associations, it should be elegant and unisex of course. Continue reading

Dual-screen lozenge design LED watch

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: In my sketchbook I had a drawing of 12 circles arrange in a lozenge but no note if it was suppose to be arrange as a circle or a lozenge. Then I realize that I could place a lozenge inside a circle and place a + sign in the center, linking the 4 corners of the lozenge. Then, I’ve cut the circle, lozenge and + in multiple segments.

Icon LED watch with customizable palettes

Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.

Gordon says: This is ICON. A watch that can be customized by choosing from a palette of materials to fit the wearer’s style.  I was going for a minimalistic style that was rugged and modern, but not too rugged.  I think this watch is unique because it uses what i like to call a 11-4-11 method of telling time.  That is to say 11 lights for the hours, 11 lights for the 5 minute intervals and 4 lights for the single minutes.
