junction_watch_maps_digital_time_01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

This watch concept is inspired by the interlocking fluent mandala-like shapes of motorway junctions. The time is told by four digital numbers which are like four motorways that meet in the display section. Each motorway comes from outside, goes through one or more curves, forming a number and then leaves the display again. Read the rest of this entry »

Heather says:

“I wanted to make an LCD design that would include seconds, as that is a desirable feature that few currently available watches have. I was also inspired by Sam’s Online watch concept, which uses just the outlines of digits on both sides.  I extended the concept by letting the digits be read in the negative space, between changing n-sided polygons (n-gons).

Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.

Ignacio says: “The inspiration for this watch design came from my previous submission, 4Cross. It’s practically the same idea, but much more simple and with another aspect. I searched for some inspiration in the Tokyoflash Watch Museum, the Tibida and Pimp Pusher watches inspiring me the most.

December 19th, 2011

Design Submitted by Heather (USA) & Sam (Germany).

Sam and Heather came up with this idea together, by building upon a much simpler version that Heather initially suggested. The original concept was a digital watch that seemed to be analog. Through conversations back and forth, the idea gradually developed into what you see here. “Out of Order” appears to be a malfunctioning analog watch with mixed up numbers, whose second hand moves clockwise, while the minute hand moves backwards at ten times the speed. The hour hand does not work at all… Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: I designed “Sequence” to balance simplicity and complexity.  The appearance is always complex, but Mode 0 is easy and simple to read.  Mode 3, on the other hand, is logically simple to read, but difficult enough to provide mental exercise for those who want it.

x-color_watch_design_expresses_your_mood_01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “I combined two ideas I had into this watch. The first idea came from the backlight of a car. I had this idea about the same time when I made my go-stop watch. Here again, I am using white light and cover it with colored plastic. And this is where my second idea comes in: I wanted the plastic covers to be replaceable, so everyone can create an own color layout. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Radu from Romania.

Radu says: “The idea for this watch design came to me when I saw some Christmas lights in a department store being reflected between a glass display case and a mirror.

edge_a_watch_design_for_bio-mechanically_enhanced_humans_blue_LED

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “I was driving in my car and I noticed a trend with modern cars to have strip LED tail lights and running lights (halo style lights). This got me thinking about digits being displayed in thin strip light shapes. I then imagined these forms extruded and metallic and ended up with this watch design. Read the rest of this entry »

Mechanical Watch Design Turns Time Forward

December 8th, 2011
mechanical_watch_design_turns_time_forward_preview

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

This mechanical watch design would require a large case and a reliable locking mechanism to ensure the cylinders lock on to the correct time. Three cylinders would rotate to reveal the time by digits (hours, 10 minute group and single minutes). A steampunkesque concept that would look incredible on your wrist.
