Anders says: I wanted to design something simple, both with regards to the display and the hardware. I call the result ‘Link’. Partly for the strap which is the design’s signature feature, but also for the morse code-esque display of bars and circles.
Heather says: I thought about digits that are slashed through, but can still be read easily, and came up with the Sliced LED watch concept. The digits are fairly basic 7-segment digits, with some parallel slashes sliced through some unnecessary pieces, causing these new digits to require more than 7 LEDs each.
Peter says: This is “Infrared MkII” a digital LED watch. I am a big fan of the Predator movies and was always fascinated by the Predator’s vision modes. I decided to design a watch inspired by the Infrared theme.
Kyle says: I was inspired when looking at symbols from different languages, when I started to sketch some interlocking lines similar to letters of different cultures I came to the formation of these three ‘Linked’ lines.
Paolo says: I wanted to design something totally different this time and I’ve always wanted a watch that allowed me to see the time naturally without having to pivot my wrist. This is that watch. The Bullet Time Watch.
Design submitted by Heather & Matthew from the USA.
Heather & Matthew say: The original idea was to put the digits into four quadrants, cutting each digit off down the middle and along the edges of the case in such a way that you can still determine what the digit would be.
