Sam says: The inspiration for this watch is a particle collider. The basic idea is to have two different types of particles coming from the straps and colliding in the case and explode in a pattern that tells the time.
Jonathan says: I imagined how time would flow through wrist watches of the future. How would the cycle of time be depicted visually with both the straps and the case? I had the entire watch interact with all of its components in a balanced way that creates the illusion of motion. (Motion of time)
