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.
Pater says: Some time ago I did a couple of co-ops with Sam called “Origami” and “Mugen-Kido” which both shared a body and strap consisting of folded strip material. I wanted to re-use that principle in a more subtle futuristic manner than would have a TF old school feel.
Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing. The strap is like gray ribbon cables. The square shape — a CPU. Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience. Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.
Cory says: The watch is a Touch screen LCD/LED hybrid. It uses a dot matrix composed of Triangles instead of squares. I made this design very music friendly, when a track from your playlist comes up, you can swipe right for next, left for previous. The outer ring is not dissimilar to Rogue Touch and On Air, so the functionality will be familiar to Tokyoflash fans.
Jose says: Always caught my eye, analog watches particularly that do not use hands to tell time.
Furthermore, as a personal choice, I’m very interested in a watch with basic features accurate in the measure of time and datary. This is the basis for the development of this new concept which I share with you: BASIK.
