3kleinB

(English) Design submitted by Jacques from The Netherlands.

Jacques says: The watch is a redesign of the watch I posted earlier. Although the watch looks quite different from the first one, the principle actually is the same. A minimalistic watch with a completely blank front and time reading functionality on the side, which creates a surprising effect compared to the many watches with frontal displays and numerous clocks/pointers etc.

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I was scribbling around for a time display, that would be cool as tattoo or graffiti, some sort of iconic symbol that would draw it’s justification from the look first, then by the hidden meaning.

The idea of stacking numbers isn’t new, but there are many ways how to do it. I chose a 12-5-9 time format and gave the numbers of each category different proportions. This is where the name PLUS comes from, because the first and the last digit have the opposite proportions and form a cross.

color by color_for the blog main page

(English) Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I wanted a watch that was using 3-4 blocks for the hour/month and color changing LED’s for when the blocks are used for the 2nd/3rd/etc series of numbers. For the minute, I wanted 2 big digits for the minute/day.

I wanted to use a 1 piece lens & add a grid over it. The best size is a challenge. This is why I did 3 pictures/2 3D models. Engraving the lens was another option.

Quad-Warp 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was looking back at some of my older concepts, namely “Digicoil” and “Digital Warp“.

I have a real fondness for the digit style I used on those two concepts but neither design seemed to push the buttons of the blog voters for some reason. I noticed that the digit examples I used on “Digital Warp” for explanation purposes were actually quite nice in their own right. So I decided to give them one last outing “Quad-Warp” was born.
