(English) Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: The idea for this watch came to me while doodling (again). I wanted to have a watch that used simple to read numbers and that also had a cryptic mode. There seems to be a desire for both nowadays and so I began with that frame of mind.

(English) Quad-Warp : A twisted digital watch

July 1st, 2014
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.

Asymmetric 05

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a simple LED watch that could display digits using as few LEDs as possible. I wanted the design to have a detailed industrial look, which would suit various finishes, materials and colours. I then decided with a couple of tweaks that a second time telling method was also possible.

(English) Design submitted by Lewis from the UK.

sam+pete_Fingerprint_06

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany & Peter from the UK.

Sam & Peter say: When Pete’s Bio-Metric fingerprint watch concept showed up in the blog, I was like nooooooooo because I had some display tests ready by then – great minds think alike! No other fingerprint concept has been made since then (2011!) so I took my drafts and showed them to Pete. I thought, if there is a new fingerprint watch concept, he should be involved. Pete said yes in perfect english so he and I came up with some ideas for a watch.

Type X 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Kisai Type-X” a back to basics 12-5-9 design.

I didn’t have a particular inspiration in mind when I decided on an “X” shaped LCD display, but in retro-spec I wonder if  I was subconsiously influnced by the “microsoft x-box” logo or the drones in the “Oblivion” film.

(English) Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

(English) Sentinel watch keeps a robotic eye on you

Sentinel-Preview-Ani_opt

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Pater says: This design is inspired by the modern trend in car design for LED head lights.

These new lights are becoming far more futuristic, detailed and elaborate than the more traditional bulb and reflector type that they replace. Its this futuristic elaborate look that made me think of watch displays and how this could be incorporated.

“Sentinel” was the result.
