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.
Wilhelm says: The Taiko LED concept is an inspiration of a combination of Dieter Ram’s work and the analogue dialS of classic radio receivers to create a minimalistic watch with a retro sci-fi aviation appearance.
Peter says: I was thinking about a design based on a round dial for hours in an analogue format and two separate displays for mins. I quickly realised that this layout reminded me of certain iconic sci-fi imagery. Excelsior LCD was born.
Peter says: This idea is a variation of a previous design called “supernova“. This version uses a LCD display framed by a castleated bezel that divides the face into hour zones. The centre of the display features mode indicators.
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)
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.
