Type X 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

“Sentinel” was the result.

(English) Splinter LED watch with vertical animating display

April 21st, 2014
Splinter 08

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This design is a back to basics LED (could be LCD) watch which features a narrow column of lights to describe the time. This narrow column of lights gives the watch a minimalistic – futuristic and mysterious look.

The narrow dimension of the display allows for the material and finishes to do the talking.
