Sam says: First there has been the sun dial. That has been mechanized and so it became independent from the sun. Then only the relevant numbers have been taken and time telling became digital. Later, these numbers have been represented by shapes and colors and so time telling became artistic. It’s time for another step, a watch that fuses all information into a compact display.

Peter says: I have allways been interested in sci-fi films and wanted to design an unusual alien looking watch. I didn’t have a specific image in mind but the watch evolved into something that resembles a cross between the “Tripods” of “the war of the world” films, the little spacecraft/aliens from “batteries not included” and a mechanised turret.

Heather says: I was sketching square digits, and when I came up with these 3×3 digits, I realized that it would be possible to use the Kisai logo as an animated LED display, showing one digit at a time.
Erik says: I was trying to find a way to tell the time that is fast and easy. I thought the best way was to give hours a “cake”shape, form so anyone could just see it and know what is the time. With regards to the minutes I prefer ten minutes division at the bottom of the watch.
Sam says: The inspiration for this watch comes from the multiverse hypothesis. It says, that there are parallel universes that represent alternative timelines. So everytime a decision has to be made, there are many options, many possibilities of how your path continues. One decision can lead to many ways as well as many ways can conclude into one decision. This relationship can be shown with parallel graphs that sometimes have connections. Continue reading →
