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.

Preview-Ani-1_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

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-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.

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.
