Trinary 01

Trinary watch combines LED, LCD & different time methods for ultra customisation.

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I seem to have developed a bit of a fondness for the 12/5/9 time telling method, which for me always suggest that the display should be split into three areas/segments (seems intuitive to do so)

I originally had an image in my head that was kind of performance car exhaust esc (think Pagani Zonda) but as I drew it up I realised that it resembled the warning sign for radiation.

Fingerprint e-paper watch exposes digital time.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany & Peter from the UK.

Sam & Peter say: When Pete’s Bio-Metric fingerprint watch concept showed up in the blog, I was like nooooooooo because I had some display tests ready by then – great minds think alike!

Pete said yes in perfect english so he and I came up with some ideas for a watch.

Feasibility was one of the stumbling blocks for that design. Since that design, I have a had a few thoughts on how to make a drivers watch with a similar look but much easier to make.

I then had a eureka moment and realised that it could be done relatively easily using an off the shelf analogue movement.

Minimalist ‘EInked’ ring-watch and companion wristwatch

Design submitted by Clement from Singapore.

Clement says: I have been looking at watches with eink screens but i have not seen any pretty ones yet. Eink screens consume little power and should last long if used in a normal watch.(Current smartwatches have too many functions that consume power). Hence i’ll try my hand at designing a watch that suits my fancy. I also realized that ring-watches are quite cool but not many people wear them.
