Talgat says: I wanted to create hours with the Roman figures, to connect it modern design. that is two times (past and future)
Design submitted by Peter (UK) & Sam (Germany).
Peter and Sam says: For this concept, we both had a rough image in mind, how an Origami watch could look like. We combined our ideas and the result is a snap-on bracelet e-paper watch. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: This concept began experimentally with sketching for hexagon based numbers. After a while, the numbers developed into these round ones, that consist of six circle segments and a center dot. I played with the number layout and soon everything reminded me of some sci-fi technology.
I continued with this theme and so SuujiMaru was born. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I have noticed a trend with the latest releases of new watches that TF prefer designs that are simple/feasible and predominately LCD.
So I decided to create a watch which fitted this criteria. I had two designs in mind, one was a four dialled lcd analogue design that shared the same time telling method a “hunter time killer” and a new time telling method which involves lines dissecting a shape to create numbers of segments. I decided to merge these designs to create a very simple time telling method that would be very easy to implement. Division was born. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Dietrich from Australia.
Dietrich says : This idea was inspired by my inaccurate memory of a 1980s video game called Qix, and also by sun-dials. I originally had two watch ideas – one for the outer triangles and for an inner triangle, so I merged the two.
Design submitted by Ron from The Netherlands.
Ron says: I was playing around withe the iPad tilt function and wondered if I could make it work into a watch.
The watch should be sleek, sophisticated and simple. You see a lot of tiny cubes. By changing the tilt of the watch you change direction the light shines on the cubes. The numbers also consists of the same cubes but they stay the same so you can see them by changing the rest of the cubes by tilting the watch. Sounds hard but it is simple.
Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.
Laszlo says: This LCD watch concept use Lenticular FX to present the time.
Lenticular: as specially prepared graphics that are designed to work together with a lenticular lens to allow the viewer to see different images depending on the angle at which they view it.
Design submitted by Heather from the USA
Heather says: After designing the digits for my n-gon display concept, I found that I could make digits similar to those that would stack well, since they have no middle.
I thought it would be fun to have the time read from the inside-out, since it allows a changing look to the display every minute, and because it allows for a descriptive and catchy name, “Inside-out”. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This concept watch design is called “Kazu” after the Japanese word meaning ‘numbers’. I thought it would be fun to create a watch that uses the letters that make up the numbers 0 to 9 instead of the digits themselves and present them in a puzzling way.
Design submitted by Devindh from the UK.
Devindh says: Project ‘ripple’. I watched a presentation on youtube from CES 2012 about the current state of e-paper devices (mainly from e-ink). One aspect of this technology that stood out for me is its ability to maintain curvature and still be legible/functional. I decided to create a design with this as the main focus.

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.
Cory says: Wordclouds are a new phenomenon that has shown up in internet culture. It seems that a watch using E-ink that displays a wordcloud of the current time or date in interesting fonts would be a cool thing to have on your wrist. From this idea Clouds emerged. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: The idea for a pixely display came while working on another watch. I like pixels so I developed a display, that shows time and date with low resolution numbers. Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.
Ignacio says: Curiously, I had a pencil which projected three shadows. That inspired me for a design that, after modification, resulted in this design (which is quite different, the original design consisting of circles). Read the rest of this entry »
Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.
Anders says: I was trying to find something new, thinking about ratios of rotation for each hand. An image of three sprockets came to mind, each with a ratio of 60:61 relative to the one before. Thus the minute hand rotates one revolution more than the second hand every minute. Read the rest of this entry »
Design Submitted by Ron from USA
At Tokyoflash this design got us thinking. Its a simple idea, but we think it would be popular with anyone studying science especially Chemistry of course. In the past we have had a few watches that really grabbed the attention of a certain group. For example, the Morse Code watch was very popular with Radio enthusiasts. Read the rest of this entry »
