Kernkraft Steampunk Globe LED Watch

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I’ve tried to design it to sit somewhere between art deco, raygun gothic and steampunk.

It is a classic analog watch where the ‘pole’ of the globe indicates the hour, the thin end of the inner orbit marks the minute, and the outer orbit the seconds.  This ensures that the display is constantly moving at a noticeable speed, giving a more dynamic impression. Continue reading

Timeline LED watch uses motion to display time

Design submitted by Zoltan from Hungary.

OctoThorpe LED watch is a digital watch with a cryptic twist.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

I sketched around for a digital display and quickly came to the double square numbers, you can see in the images. I took the name Octothorpe due to it’s emphasis on the number 8. There are 8 squares forming the time display and each of them is made of 8 segments.
