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)
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.
Peter says: I have recently created a couple concepts that featured helix shapes in their time telling in various guises. This is a 12/5/9 format LED watch which uses the helical forms to show the time in three columns that look like exposed cables, hence the name “LiveWire”
Peter says: For a long time I have had the idea in the back of my head for a watch design that you could look through rather like a gun scope, this is probably partly inspired by one of Cory’s older designs called “Lock On”
Wilhelm says: Splitting digits is nothing new here on the TF blog, so I was inspired to create another version of this idea. My brief was simple; the watch must be easy to read, easy to be manufactured, while keeping the exclusive spirit of a TF watch.
