Tokyo Groove LED Watch Design with ‘Quick Read’

September 15th, 2010

Design submitted by Devindh from the UK.

Devindh says: “I studied your existing catalogue of watches and looked at the media coverage (fashion magazines). I combined some of the linear design elements with a bit of glamour, hence the name ‘Tokyo Groove’. Reading the time is easy compared to most of the ideas that have been submitted so far. The watch features a red duotone digital display indicating minutes. 12 ‘cross bars’ are tipped with LED indicators showing the hour numerals. The version shown in the main render is ‘quick read’. A second version replaces the conventional numerals with pure coloured tiles. A different colour is displayed for each hour. This is a design for anybody who likes to be different/unusual. It combines modern styling with some conventional elements giving it a broad appeal.Read the rest of this entry »

Warsaw – Inspired by Waclaw Sierpinsk

September 15th, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

This is another unique and intriguing design from Logan.  The concept was inspired by Waclaw Sierpinsk and Logan describes it as “12 triangular segments inside a triangular watch face, as 3 triangular groups of 4 segments.   Top group indicates hours, bottom left group indicates 10-minute groups, bottom right group indicates single minutes”.

Helix – The Ideal Watch Design For The Geneticist

September 14th, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

A fascinatingly beautiful and biological looking concept from Logan here. He says: “This idea is surprisingly simple to read; there are three segments; hours, 10-minute groups, and single-minutes and one segment of the single-minute shape is used for AM/PM.”

The display is like the structure of DNA with the blue lines showing hours 1-12, groups of 5 minutes in yellow and single minutes with green dots. It would look really bright and energetic with colored LEDs against the black screen. This method of telling the time is particularly logical as the time progresses in one direction and as the time increases the number of lights increases. Read the rest of this entry »

Squares – An Artistic Minimal LED Watch Design

September 14th, 2010

Design submitted by Kevin from the UK.

Kevin says: “This design is based on a watch I bought from Tokyoflash a few years ago. It’s all about minimalism. The time can be worked out from the bare minimum number of 25 lit or unlit squares arranged into a perfectly square grid.”

This is indeed a beautiful, clean and minimal concept from Kevin. The display looks like a piece of modern art – that would constantly change color as time progresses. With added LED colors, this design could have the appearance of a 70′s dance floor. Which theme do you prefer? Read the rest of this entry »

Arctime Challenges Your Pattern Recognition Skills

September 13th, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan describes his “Arctime” watch design as a “Dissection of the clock into 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 arcs, fit compactly into a square.  Each arc has three segments not shared by other arcs, which are blue to indicate hours, yellow to indicate groups of 5 minutes, or green when an overlap is necessary to tell the time.  The four small segments where the arcs intersect indicate single minutes, and their color can always be chosen (blue, green, or yellow) to be different than the hour and 5-minute segments.” Read the rest of this entry »

Watch Design Inspired by Nature

September 13th, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: “A design inspired by nature. A hexagonal arrangement of circles with intersections defining segments (innermost segments slightly modified).  12 outermost segments indicate hours, 11 middle segments indicate 5-minute groups, 4 inner segments indicate single minutes.  1 middle segment free for alarm or AM/PM.”

Tokyoflash says: By using a repeated layout of circles the time has been easily divided into a unique time telling layout that looks both mesmerizing as well artistic. Note the segments line up perfectly to where the time would be found on a regular watch. I am sure after a day you would be able to blast off the time in a jiffy. The combination of blue, green and a touch of yellow also goes well in a black case design. This design would be ideal with digital tube LEDs which would create a really vivid look.

Code Breaker LED Watch Design

September 10th, 2010

A new wrist watch concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio. With a square case and circular display, this concept would be ideal for people who like both square and round watches. The face of the watch has what looks like a bezel with embossed digits – reminiscent of a combination lock. Maybe if the bezel worked, it could perform a unique function!

The stainless steel design features green LEDs and the time can be read simply – hours across the upper window, groups of five minutes and four single minutes in the lower window. The spaces showing the current units of time. How do you feel about this concept design? Do you like the color combination and the shape? Read the rest of this entry »

A Unisex Concept Watch With Cryptic Etching

September 10th, 2010

Design submitted by Heather Sable from the USA.

Heather says: “This is a unisex design for a wrist watch. It is called “Boxed In”. When the time is not displayed, the etched design is still pleasing to the eye. The button in the center will activate the time display through LEDs. The center design determines the hour. The boxes at the top and bottom determine the minutes.”

The concept designs we’re receiving are really creative! Heather’s concept is designed for guys and girls and uses simple lines and squares to show the time. The layout of the shapes on the screen are very cool – like a birds eye view of a pyramid perhaps. It looks as difficult to read as hieroglyphs but like most concepts here, when you know how and have had a bit of practice you can read the time instantly. Just take a look at the explanation below.

Night Vision Key Chain Concept

September 9th, 2010

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio, this time an adaptation of the Night Vision concept. This is a great alternative to wearing a watch in the traditional manner. The image below shows the time piece attached to a key ring but this is a concept that would also look great on a key chain or worn on a chain like a pocket watch. This design has blue LEDs, rather than green in the previous design. Do you have an LED color preference?

The shape of this concept is unusual but is definitely original. As you can see, the time can be read at a glance; hours around the edge of the hexagonal shape, the gap in the lights showing the hour. Digital minutes in the center. Read the rest of this entry »

Two Sided Triangle LED Watch

September 9th, 2010

Design submitted by Leuenberger Stéphane from Switzerland.

Stéphane says: “12 and 9 are multiples of 3 which is why i’m going for the triangular shape. I’m going more for fashion appeal rather than for technical appeal. I’ve tried to respect the symmetry of the watch.”

This two sided LED watch looks very different and is focussed on being more of a fashion accessory – that’s what this design is about. Having fun with the shape and allowing the consumer to add fashion accessories will the give this design a personalized look. Love it or hate it you be the judge. We think it’s just plain fun, and that is what this design is all about! Read the rest of this entry »

Asymmetrical Alien Communicator Concept Watch

September 8th, 2010

Design submitted by Maciej Mandrysz from Poland.

Here’s what Maciej says about his unique concept: “An asymmetric watch design that is simple, modern & clean. Inspired by a sci-fi computer interface. 12 LEDs on left represent hours, 10 LEDs in the center represent 10 minute group, and 9 LEDs on the right represent single minutes.”

A very striking look to this watch design by Maciej. Black and green together just have to be alien don’t they? Could be a countdown device for self-destruct, a cryptic communicator, some kind of analysing device – my last guess would be a wrist watch. It’s nice to see all these community designs pouring in: people getting involved & enjoying the creativity! What are your thoughts on this watch design?

A Watch Design That Uses Words Instead of Numbers

September 7th, 2010
kisai_kaidoku_tynan_mayhew_concept_design_original_concept

Design submitted by Tynan Mayhew from Canada. (14 years old)

Tokyoflash Says: This watch design is in fact very simple to read at a glance – when you know how. We like that the LEDs light up the individual words in order so that you can follow the written numbers to calculate the time. Maybe it would be fun to have some different typefaces or even different LED colors to indicate hours, groups of 10 minutes and single minutes.

This concept has now become reality. Kisai Kaidoku is available to buy here. Read the rest of this entry »

A concept design with a strong, rugged stainless steel case connected with a timing interface that shows hours, groups of 5 minutes and single minutes 1-4 in three distinct circles. Hours in the upper circle and 5 minute intervals in the bottom left circle are shown at the same points as hours and minutes on a clock face so the approximate time can be read at a glance. Four single minutes are shown in the bottom right circle.
