Gabriel says: I do not have a particular inspiration for this concept but as the clock display resembles a spider web, I thought to name it “web”. The watch has 60 segments that light up and in center a digital numeric display.
Gordon says: I wanted to make a watch inspired by modern custom interiors. I was hoping to come up with a unique method of time telling but more importantly i was hoping it would compliment the overall design.
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! No other fingerprint concept has been made since then (2011!) so I took my drafts and showed them to Pete. I thought, if there is a new fingerprint watch concept, he should be involved. Pete said yes in perfect english so he and I came up with some ideas for a watch.
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.
Peter says: This is “Kisai Type-X” a back to basics 12-5-9 design.
I didn’t have a particular inspiration in mind when I decided on an “X” shaped LCD display, but in retro-spec I wonder if I was subconsiously influnced by the “microsoft x-box” logo or the drones in the “Oblivion” film.
Delphine says: I was looking at a rotating sky map and I thought it would be great to have one small everywhere I go. Date and time are already on it so why not a watch? And this is how Constellation was born.
