Centrifuge watch accelerates LED’s into time vectors

June 16th, 2014
Centrifuge-Solo-Black_LED_WATCH

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was doing the usual search on the internet for inspiration, logos, weird shapes or scientific influences and I saw the Cern logo (The LHC or Large Hadron Collider) and I was intrigued by the swirl effect and how lines ran off of it. That simple shape gave the impression of movement and velocity…thus, Centrifuge was born.

June 13th, 2014
Asymmetric 05

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a simple LED watch that could display digits using as few LEDs as possible. I wanted the design to have a detailed industrial look, which would suit various finishes, materials and colours. I then decided with a couple of tweaks that a second time telling method was also possible.

sam+pete_Fingerprint_06

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.

New-Depth-4

Design submitted by Justin from the UK.

Justin says: I was toying with different shapes and decided that a square would be easier to work with this time. For those who know my work (few though they may be) you may have seen my “Mad Scientist Sketch-Pad”…this is a Frankensteins monster of that pad…

May 28th, 2014
Type X 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

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.

May 19th, 2014
Hadron-Ace-(706x487)

Design submitted by Andrew from the UK.

Andrew says: Hadron is a Torus analogue wrist watch is inspired by the large Hadron collider at CERN. The Hadron Collider uses high powered electromagnets to pull atoms / electrons around a giant loop of Vacuum tube to close the speed of light before smashing them together to reveal the sub-atomic structure of the universe. This lead to the discover of the Higgs boson Particle. (Materials: See Diagrams)

Sentinel watch keeps a robotic eye on you

May 14th, 2014
Sentinel-Preview-Ani_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Pater says: This design is inspired by the modern trend in car design for LED head lights.

These new lights are becoming far more futuristic, detailed and elaborate than the more traditional bulb and reflector type that they replace. Its this futuristic elaborate look that made me think of watch displays and how this could be incorporated.

“Sentinel” was the result.

Tri-Sector-6

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: In recent months I have had a bit of a thing for triangular watches, sporting 12/5/9 time telling formats. For some reason (in my eyes) these two things seem to go togther very nicely. So here is another version called “Tri-Sector”.
