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…
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)
