Stylux2_1

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Earlier this month we saw the imaginative Stylux watch from Anders that used a combination of laser & phosphorescent ink to ‘draw’ the time. He has updated the design using less advanced technology, which could be more realistic to produce. Read the rest of this entry »

GP race watch appeals to motor sport fans

December 20th, 2011
GP06

Design Submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was trying to think of a motor sport themed watch which showed time in recognisable but new way. I decided that I wanted to use the silhouette of GP circuits as my clock face. The facia is removable and can be swapped with a range of facias with different circuits on them. (this principle would work for other shapes too) The watch would be programmed to work with a range of these facias. Read the rest of this entry »

Sequence watch is both simple & complex.

December 16th, 2011
sequence-thumb

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: I designed “Sequence” to balance simplicity and complexity.  The appearance is always complex, but Mode 0 is easy and simple to read.  Mode 3, on the other hand, is logically simple to read, but difficult enough to provide mental exercise for those who want it.

x-color_watch_design_expresses_your_mood_01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “I combined two ideas I had into this watch. The first idea came from the backlight of a car. I had this idea about the same time when I made my go-stop watch. Here again, I am using white light and cover it with colored plastic. And this is where my second idea comes in: I wanted the plastic covers to be replaceable, so everyone can create an own color layout. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Radu from Romania.

Radu says: “The idea for this watch design came to me when I saw some Christmas lights in a department store being reflected between a glass display case and a mirror. I have wanted for some time to submit a design to the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog but nothing original enough occurred to me so this was a stroke of good luck.

an_led_wrist_watch_that_has_domino_fx_01

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: “This watch design is based on one of my puzzle ideas and, although it looks baffling initially, is actually incredibly easy to understand. It is called “Domino FX” because of the 4 domino-like figures in the display. However, these are not really dominoes, but digital 8s with up to 7 spots arranged inside each.

edge_a_watch_design_for_bio-mechanically_enhanced_humans_blue_LED

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: “I was driving in my car and I noticed a trend with modern cars to have strip LED tail lights and running lights (halo style lights). This got me thinking about digits being displayed in thin strip light shapes. I then imagined these forms extruded and metallic and ended up with this watch design. Read the rest of this entry »

A Twofold Way To See Time

December 7th, 2011
A_twofold_way_to_see_time_preview

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I was sketching digits that appeared to be folded over two faces of a cube, when it occurred to me that they would look even more interesting if one face showed a positive display of the digit, while the other showed a negative one. The display is “TWOFOLD”. Read the rest of this entry »

Tsumu watch stacks numbers to build time.

December 6th, 2011
tsumu_watch_grey

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Tsumu” after the Japanese word meaning “to stack”.

Instead of having 4 relatively small digits displayed beside each other, as with conventional digital watches, I thought it might be fun to make them much larger and of different shades, colours and thicknesses and stacked on top of each other so that, while they might still be easily recognizable to the initiated, they might just seem like a meaningless array of colourful shapes to everyone else. That said, the time and date can be displayed as an animation by pressing the appropriate button twice, so that the digits are revealed one after another in order from the bottom to the top.

Design submitted by Yoann from France.

Yoann says: For a long time, I like to make some graphic creation in my free time and I used to put on it my little logo and “YAL” as a signature. I thought it will be cool to design a watch concept with it ! So, I took my pencil, turned on the tron music and began to create a watch with my inspiration.

November 25th, 2011
led_watch_design_glows_the_time_black_white

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Glow”, I was trying to come up with an LED watch that didn’t tell the time directly with the LEDs. So I decided it would be nice if you read the time using the light given off by the LEDs. Read the rest of this entry »

Connected watch design merges lines to tell time

2 lateral

Design submitted by Ignacio  from Spain.

Ignacio  says: Curiously, I had a pencil which projected three shadows. That inspired me for a design that, after modification, resulted in this design (which is quite different, the original design consisting of circles). Read the rest of this entry »

arashi_watch_time

Watch design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.

Ascension watch requires a different perspective to tell time.

November 17th, 2011
peter-fletcher-sam-jerichow-ascension-descension-01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK & Sam from Germany.

Peter & Sam say: The initial idea for this LED watch came from the so called Penrose Stairs. These imaginary stairs let you walk up eternally by stepping on the same steps again and again each cycle. From a certain perspective, real life models can look like the often seen images. From another perspective you can see, it wouldn’t work. This perspective dependency guided us to the display and the time reading. Read the rest of this entry »
