Design submitted by Valentin from the USA.

Valentin says: I was going through my many designs that haven’t submitted and found this one I designed a while ago. I came up with this one when I was more into vintage video games and stuff. don’t really know what to call it. I though maybe something like “arcade” “perspective” or “emulator”? I don’t know since it really just is all that at once.

September 4th, 2014
Batoidea 02

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was doing some sketching and scribbled a simple 12/5/9 display layout made up of three ellipses. This simple layout had a slightly alien look to it that could interpreted as some kind of unidentified flying object, or some yet undiscovered creature from the deepest and darkest parts of the oceans. Hence the name “Batiodea” (Batoidea is a superorder of cartilaginous fish commonly known as rays)

Invader 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is the third and final instalment….or is it a prequel? of the model used to create “Stealth II” and “3Delix” a long long time ago in a galaxy near the west midlands in good old blighty. It occurred to me that the chevron shaped segmentation on this model was slightly reminiscent of the arches of the Sydney Opera House. So I decided to create this 12-5-9 format watch based on this inspiration.

PLUS watch is an electronic tattoo for your wrist.

sam-jerichow-PLUS-01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I was scribbling around for a time display, that would be cool as tattoo or graffiti, some sort of iconic symbol that would draw it’s justification from the look first, then by the hidden meaning.

The idea of stacking numbers isn’t new, but there are many ways how to do it. I chose a 12-5-9 time format and gave the numbers of each category different proportions. This is where the name PLUS comes from, because the first and the last digit have the opposite proportions and form a cross.

color by color_for the blog main page

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I wanted a watch that was using 3-4 blocks for the hour/month and color changing LED’s for when the blocks are used for the 2nd/3rd/etc series of numbers. For the minute, I wanted 2 big digits for the minute/day.

I wanted to use a 1 piece lens & add a grid over it. The best size is a challenge. This is why I did 3 pictures/2 3D models. Engraving the lens was another option.
