Fragments – Stacked Discs Tells Time

July 29th, 2013
Fragment_1

(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was looking at animations of some ultra high-end watches and inspiration struck to make something with a similar feel, but less complicated and more affordable. I wanted to use a standard analog movement, but that soon proved impossible. Hopefully the visual impact of the display exceeds the increased complexity. Read the rest of this entry »

(English) Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I recently found this half-finished concept rattling about on my hard drive. I’d left it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth submitting, but when I found it there was a cry of ‘let the public decide’, so I finished it and here it is!

(English) Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The RA is a distant relative of Cypher and CLB – also analog watch concepts. The basic idea this time was using simple things to create a complex looking sci-fi eye candy that’s actually easy to read.

(English) To boldly go where no other watch has gone before!

May 9th, 2013
Excelsior-01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have submitted a few analogue designs in the past and most were perhaps a little too imaginative. They tended to be technically un-feasible and required expensive bespoke mechanisms to allow them to work. For this concept I decided to go back to basics and use a traditional disc style analogue time telling using similar construction to “Uzumaki”

(English) Ronu V2 e-paper watch (update)

April 23rd, 2013
2

(English) Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.

Ignacio says: This is a redesign of my first idea published on tokyoflash blog, Ronu. I always loved my first idea, but in 2011 (the year I designed it), I had no idea of 3D, as you can see. It’s some ugly the design I did, isn’t?

That’s why I redesign it, trying to do the best I know to date, trying to refresh it, to upgrade it.

(English) Mesh watch inspired by classic sci-fi

December 5th, 2012
Mesh 05

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Mesh” a back to basics disc type analogue watch.

The inspiration for this concept is the old “mysteron” UFOs from the “Captain Scarlett” animated tv show from yesteryear. The UFO spun as it flew and had a metallic wire frame look to it which really caught the light.  I have tried to get a similar feel without being too literal.

Turbofan 04

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Turbofan” a remake of an earlier design called “Fan”.

The face of the watch is inspired by the blades of a fan. This inspiration makes for a technical looking dial that kind of looks like armour plating that constantly animates with the movement of the hands.
