Design submitted by Stefano from Italy.
Stefano says “divide a square into 29 triangles and this is the ideal number to represent the time.” A geometric concept that divides the time into hour and minute segments using triangles. Quite a simple design that needs a little calculation to read, but we’re sure this wouldn’t take long once you get the hang of it. It appears that the display would be made up of either LCD cubes or digital tube LEDs with a silk screen over the top to show the triangular effect. Let Stefan know what you think about his design and whether you’d wear it. Read the rest of this entry »

A concept design from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.
A revision on the 3D Unlimited concept sees the interface transferred into a round case and a hexagonal case. This design could have a colored LCD panel, to ensure that the time is “always on” and readable at a glance. 4 digits of time are simply woven into the display in a 3D effect.
The question is, which would you rather wear: ”A”: a hexagonal case design or “B”: a round case design? Let us know A or B in the comments section below and don’t forget to check “yes or no” to let us know if you would buy this design. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam came up with the idea of stock market graph as a cool contemporary watch design representing the end of the financial crisis. There are two graphs which continuously move from right to left. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Kevin from the USA.
Kevin says that the idea for this concept came to him when he was thinking about the “tunnel” from a retro TV show called Time Machine. Quite a minimal design but with an interesting tunnel effect display with green LED lines moving in from the outside edges. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Stefano from Italy.
numbER is a digital watch design with a difference. The time can be read instantly and does not have to be calculated in any way. Stefano says “numbER is a simple way to read the time – in the best fashion way”, the point being, simple is best but can be displayed in an interesting format. Read the rest of this entry »

Submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.
Another beautiful concept from Laszlo here. He explains it as a “circular view of time”. There are two variations; a silver version for day time which uses LCD to show the time and a black version for night time that uses LEDs to display the time. As you can see, this design is clear and intuitive to read; 12 hours, 5 groups of 10 minutes and 9 single minutes in three separate segments make up the time. The pattern on the display changes constantly as time progresses. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.
A simple time way to read the time, integrated into a simple case design. Laszlo suggests this design would use OLED to display the time but could alternatively use LCD blocks and then, like the Tokyoflash Rogue watch, could light up to highlight the time in green as on the example picture.

A concept that is quite different from other watch designs from the Tokyoflash Product Design Studio so far. A simple metallic bracelet that could be made in a variety of colors – and would be suitable for both guys and girls. The time display is integrated beneath the deep, curved lens and shows the time in a simple layout of shapes. Would you wear a bracelet style watch like this?

Design submitted by Lorenzo Gi from Sweden.
Lorenzo says: “As graphic designer I play with shapes and colors every day. The concept of this watch is intended to create abstract shapes with numbers and fonts. There is just a grid where hours and minutes are merged. It’s a minimal design in its shape, layout and functionality, in fact there is no AM and PM, just two colors, no date.”
Tokyoflash says: Here is a perfect example of how to make the display look unreadable to the untrained eye giving the appearance of something quite alien. We really like the 45 cuts on the corners creating a futuristic look. I think it would work best as an LCD watch as there are many segments and need to be close together to keep it’s appeal.
