Razor LED watch reflects iconic phone design

July 15th, 2013
Razor 010

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: A few years ago before the advent of the modern smart phone, mobile phones were far more varied and styled. They weren’t dominated by a huge screen so had to be sleek and interesting in their own right. My favourite phone of this era was the Motorola Razr, it was a sleek thin clam shell style phone with two separate screens and a super sexy metallic key pad. The key pad looked uber futuristic (at the time) with its metallic finish, illuminated numbers and dividing lines and tactile feel. This is what inspired my “Razor” watch.

Orbit LED watch with unusual analog style

July 11th, 2013
2

Design submitted by Timur from Kyrgyzstan.

Timur says: I called this new watch design “Orbit” because when you look at it – you get the impression as planets going around the sun. In the very center of the dial-plate we can see the seconds which look like the sun.

Halftime seeks out digital patterns

July 9th, 2013
halftime0918

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I was analyzing the differences among the digits 0-9, and how some digits share common parts, or shapes. Each of the following groupings share the same bottom half: 0,6,8 – 3,5,9 – 1,4,7 – 2.

Phi-Ocular could be watching YOU.

June 27th, 2013
Preview-Ani_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to think of a really intuitive analogue style time telling method that could be easily made using an LCD display. I have played around on previous designs with rings that describe the hours (orbital decay) and others that use dots to highlight the analogue positions on a watch face (Tri-Ripple) so I decided to combine both of these elements.

sam-jerichow-RA-01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The RA is a distant relative of Cypher and CLB – also analog watch concepts. The basic idea this time was using simple things to create a complex looking sci-fi eye candy that’s actually easy to read.

Insular LED watch has robotic column of lights

June 14th, 2013
Preview-Ani-1_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I had an image in my head for a semi-organic shaped watch with a narrow LED display. The image had a alien robot kind of look which was industrial but not too aggressive in its language. ”Insular” was the outcome.

Vertebrae: If Aliens wore watches

June 14th, 2013
Vertebrae 07

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Ever since I started submitting designs for the blog I have been trying to think of a nice design based on Armour, Exoskeletons, and Mecha. This design is inspired by those things to achieve an bio-mechanical look. I wanted an industrial feel with a technical detailed look. “Vertebrae” is the result.  This one probably isn’t for the ladies.

Helicoil watch spirals up your wrist

June 10th, 2013
Helicoil MkII 6

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: From the beginning of my involvement with this blog I have had a fascination with trying to show the time in 3D. One of my early design that did this was called “Rotor” which had an analogue watch hand that showed the minutes like a conventional analogue watch but the hours were shown in the vertical plane. This works and makes for an interesting concept, trouble is of course that this makes for a clunky form and would be difficult to make.

‘Tentacle’ bio-mechanical alien watch

June 10th, 2013
Tentacle-01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This design is inspired by a combination of sci-fi and the natural world. I wanted to come up with a design that has a simple clutter free bio-mechanical look with a retro feel that could be worn as a piece of jewellery that happens to also tell the time. “Tentacle” was the result which looks like a cross between an arm from a “War of the worlds” tripod and a crustacean.

RESET watch tilts time to your wrist movement.

June 7th, 2013
sam-jerichow-reset-00_opt

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.

Equality e-paper watch with digits based on the ‘equals’ sign

May 29th, 2013
sam-jerichow-Equality-00

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I was experimenting with minimalistic numbers that were based on the equality sign. I ended up giving some segments angled ends to make the numbers better recognizable while staying futuristically minimalistic.

Kuantos3D

Design submitted by Clarence-Junius from the USA.

Clarence-Junius says: I got the idea for the Kuantos while watching my collector’s edition of Stargate: Atlantis. I wanted to use the stargate theme as a base for this design without stepping on any toes. Close attention to details help me keep this design original.

‘Part-Time’ LCD watch is futuristic, semi-transparent

May 24th, 2013
NEW-part-time2-1248

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: My brother actually came up with the idea for a watch called PART TIME, and originally designed the digits for it.  I submitted these digits back then, but did not have a good presentation for it, so it never showed up on the blog.  Now that my 3D skills have improved, I decided it is time for me to resubmit.
