Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing. The strap is like gray ribbon cables. The square shape — a CPU. Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience. Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.
Tom says: I am currently at the second year of a Bachelordegree in Mediadesign. This idea came to me during a schoolproject in a class named “Informationdesign”, where we had to choose amongst different kind of topics in a mandatory exercise (we had to pass in order to get to take the exams). I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.
Bryce says: I’m a fan a geek vintage: pager, old computers, science fiction movie from the seventies/eighties, etc.
Since a long time, I dream about a watch with a vintage leather strap that is able to display time like a fictional computer in a (old) science fiction movie. I want a watch with a clean and simple design and a leather strap a little bit “handmade”.
Andrew says: Whilst trying to think of a new concept for a wristwatch I though how a Mobius infinity symbol also looks like a number eight. Furthermore I that their not many Solar powered wristwatch added to the tokyo flash design concept blog.
Firdaus says: A fusion of two couple of elements; usability and style, cryptic and futuristic, bars and numbers, presented in fusion of two material, stainless steel and silicon, opaque and transparent, this is the Kisai Fused, concept design.
