Peter says: For a long time I have had the idea in the back of my head for a watch design that you could look through rather like a gun scope, this is probably partly inspired by one of Cory’s older designs called “Lock On”
Wilhelm says: Splitting digits is nothing new here on the TF blog, so I was inspired to create another version of this idea. My brief was simple; the watch must be easy to read, easy to be manufactured, while keeping the exclusive spirit of a TF watch.
Justin says: I was browsing through a friends mathematics coursework and saw graphs, bar graphs, charts and numbers etc and I noticed how easy it would be to assign the basics of time telling to one of these simple looking forms.
Peter says: This concept is an evolution of an earlier design called “stealth” .
The original “stealth” concept featured a triangular shaped watch body with three displays showing the time in a choice of digital and digital analogue formats.This concept retains those features but with a more alien bio-engineered steathy shape.
Andrew says: The biological / sexual reproduction processes sometime refer to as the Biological clock. I thought what would happen if i based a wrist watch on Male sperm cells fertilising a female ovum / egg. This was the idea behind the Conception design constructed in either IP, White Acetate or Steel. Using one of the following display types / screen: LCD Touch, LED or E-ink / E-paper.
Peter says: Being a fan of watches its hard to believe that there are people out there that dont like them.
Some of these people are also not keen on mobile phones let alone having to look at their phones to tell the time. So it seems there is a niche for a time telling device that is neither a phone or watch but is compact to be carried on one person.
Most people carrier a wallet or purse as debit cards and credit cards are a necessary evil of modern living so I decided to come up with a credit card sized clock that is compact enough to fit into a wallet or pocket or could be worn on ones person. The creativly named “Time-Card” was born.
I have a real fondness for the digit style I used on those two concepts but neither design seemed to push the buttons of the blog voters for some reason. I noticed that the digit examples I used on “Digital Warp” for explanation purposes were actually quite nice in their own right. So I decided to give them one last outing “Quad-Warp” was born.
