Devindh says: I called this design ‘Ebi’ because the eventual design reminded me of a lobster. The idea stemmed from my exploration of e-paper. I wanted to incorporate laser cut pieces of e-paper into a design, as this display technology lends itself to custom shapes.
Peter says: This is “Digit Stacked MKIII” cryptic LED watch.
The original idea consisted of digits made up of LEDs, the digits were arranged one inside the other in a russian doll style. This allowed the quite regular digits to become cryptic, artistic and abstract.
Sam says: There is this wrist surrounding line (ito in japanese) which adapts in the case region to show the four digits of the time display. The line itself can always be seen completely, but it is not illuminated.
Peter says: This is “Trylon” a 12-5-9 format LED watch.
I had an idea to design a watch based on the image of the “flux capacitor” from the time traveling Delorean from the “back to the future” movies. In the development stage I had more of a Cylon image in my head and ended up with something between a Cylon and the robot spaceships from the first star-wars films which had a “Y” shape face. The name “Trylon” came from the combination of the “Y” shape face and Cylon like lights.
