Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

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

“Sentinel” was the result.

Trylon Lite 07

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Trylon Lite” an simplified version of the original Trylon concept.

In the prospect that Trylon should get a second chance at development I have had a few thoughts regarding simplification. In order to reduce watch case/modual size I have taken the lid hinge and latch outside of the case cavity. I have done a few variations which have their own merits.

Design submitted by Tom from Norway.

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.

sam-jerichow-Quicksilver-01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I checked my thermometer recently (thanks to a summer flu) and and it’s one that works with quicksilver.

August 7th, 2013
KisaiNine4x Preview Ani

Design submitted by Peter from UK.

Peter says: The Kisai logo consists of 9 dots connected together with a few vertical and horizontal lines. This is a good basis for a simple LED array to create a digit . I decided to use four of these arrays to create “KisaiNine4x” (Nine meaning the number of dots per array and 4 x the number of arrays) “Strewth I can see the time from here!!”                                                                                                             Read the rest of this entry »
