Swirl II re-invents the analogue watch

July 9th, 2014
Swirl II 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was making a working clock of my original SWIRL watch concept as a little project and realised that the concept could be made easier to read by dividing the time telling into two or three displays rather than the single one on the original version, SWIRL II was born.

Saturn II 07

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is Saturn II, a re-design of my original Saturn concept. Saturn was one of my first concepts submitted to the blog. It never made it onto the blog presumably due to being a little adventurous from a technical perspective.

This version is a lot simpler than the original but still retains the original’s feel.

Centrifuge-Solo-Black_LED_WATCH

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was doing the usual search on the internet for inspiration, logos, weird shapes or scientific influences and I saw the Cern logo (The LHC or Large Hadron Collider) and I was intrigued by the swirl effect and how lines ran off of it. That simple shape gave the impression of movement and velocity…thus, Centrifuge was born.

“Inverse” Drivers style analogue watch with mirror system.

June 3rd, 2014
Inverse 05

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in the day I did a design called “UFO” which featured a wrap around display that went around the perimeter of the watch and would have been useful as a driver’s watch.

Feasibility was one of the stumbling blocks for that design. Since that design, I have a had a few thoughts on how to make a drivers watch with a similar look but much easier to make.

I then had a eureka moment and realised that it could be done relatively easily using an off the shelf analogue movement.

Hadron watch accelerates time particles

May 19th, 2014
Hadron-Ace-(706x487)

Design submitted by Andrew from the UK.

Andrew says: Hadron is a Torus analogue wrist watch is inspired by the large Hadron collider at CERN. The Hadron Collider uses high powered electromagnets to pull atoms / electrons around a giant loop of Vacuum tube to close the speed of light before smashing them together to reveal the sub-atomic structure of the universe. This lead to the discover of the Higgs boson Particle. (Materials: See Diagrams)

Perimeter 09

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: The idea for this design is a back to basics LED or LCD watch with a digital/analogue time telling method.

The time is told in an analogue format using digits to act as the marker in a similar way to “On Air” but in this case the digits live in a perimeter around the outside of the display.
