Perimeter LCD watch with a digital hour hand

April 14th, 2014
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.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I like minimalistic analog watches. They are so relaxed and can look so styslish. So I sketched for a simple but still diversified pair of watch hands. For this watch concept I am using two transparent foils with cleverly placed free zones and imprinted gradients, both placed above a plain white background that could be lit up, if technically possible.

January 28th, 2014
Venturi 08

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: As blog regulars know I have a thing for industrial and mechanical designs. Im also a bit of a film buff and gamer and like futuristic cars and planes that often feature.

This design I guess is inspired by futuristic planes from film and games and has a little DNA from earlier designs like “hunter killer” and “drone”.  This design is called “vtol” (vertical take off and landing) and features two jet engine like displays.

‘Deflection’ analog watch uses optical distortion to tell the time

January 3rd, 2014
Deflection-08

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in August 2012 I submitted a design called “Grid” which displayed the time in a very simple analogue format using a projected grid onto slightly 3D looking hands or discs. This gave the watch a retro futuristic look but would have been tricky to make due to the projection element.

This design called “Deflection” gets around this issue but retains the retro futuristic look.

Swirl 003

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to come up with a simple but unusual time display using a bar graph like layout.

It would have been very easy and maybe a little predictable to use LEDs or LCD blocks to do this when I had a little Eureka moment and realised that it could be very easy to achieve with a standard analogue movement.

Drsign submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The idea of the NU watch concept is using a simple geometric twist to create a minimalistic analog watch display. I was playing around with positive and negative space that’s been taken away from or added to the watch face.
