The Koi – LED watch design with a touch of Japanese

September 21st, 2010

Design submitted by Anna from Australia.

Anna has appealingly incorporated the koi fish to this simple and beautiful design.  She says “I wanted to incorporate a symbol that I believe epitomizes something inherently iconic within Japanese culture”.

The image is embossed on a silver watch face and scales will light up on each fish indicating the relevant time.  The minimalistic design will surely appeal to a variety of people and Anna believes that such design will allow the watch to be worn in all situations, from everyday to evening wear.

Cinematic Zoom LED Watch

September 21st, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan continues to surprise us with his big ideas and here’s another one inspired by cinematic zooms.  He describes it as his most conventional design with the segmented display pulsating to reveal each digit.  Asked why this design stands out from other designs, he says “It is so easy to read that it could have broad appeal, but still an interesting showcase for the beauty of the LED”.

Madrix – LED watch in black

September 20th, 2010

Design submitted by Adriano from France.

Adriano envisions this watch in black metal with white LEDs.  He wants to create a simple design that is both sophisticated and discreet, and he manages to attain this with the clean lines and conventional look of this watch.  The star-shaped arrangement of the LEDs is very unique and how Adriano designated the hours and minutes on each LED is quite impressive, with the middle circles showing 6-hour and 30-minute timings.

Broken Digital LED Watch

September 20th, 2010

Design submitted by Mattia from Italy.

We are simply awestruck with Mattia’s bizarre idea for time telling.  He tells us this idea came up when he noticed that the numbers of lines used in classic digital clocks matches perfectly to the 12+11+4 system used in some Tokyoflash watches.

Reading time may not be as easy as digital clocks but it’s far from complicated.  The upper section tells the number of hours and single minutes, lower section tells the minutes in groups of five and indicates am/pm; and is also separated in groups of 15 minutes.  It’s an easy read!

LED Bracelet Watch Design For The Futurist

September 17th, 2010

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.

At first glance, this watch shouts ‘You can never tell time’, but it is in fact child’s play.  The outside lines show hours based on regular clock position and inside these lines, the minutes are displayed in digits!  How much easier can that be! Read the rest of this entry »

2000200202 LED Watch – The future of 1000100101

September 16th, 2010

Design submitted by Francisco from Chile.

Francisco’s reinterpretation of one of his favorite Tokyoflash watches, the 100100101, is a unique art piece with its shaped surface and elegant form.  He describes it as being made from a solid aluminum block which is carefully perforated creating different models of holes with only some of them lighted up to show the time and date.  It keeps the solid block, leather strap, and multicolor LEDs of the 1000100101.

Snap Ring – A Watch Design From Another Galaxy

September 16th, 2010

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

A very futuristic design, it almost reminds us of a Star Trek spaceship.  The design is very sleek with its glassy and smooth surface, and the snap ring strap is perfect for the whole concept.  The single-colored LEDs on its plain exterior make the watch simple yet catchy.  Red LED on a black casing would definitely stand out for this design.

An LED Watch Design For Steampunk Hypnotists

September 15th, 2010

Design submitted by Logan from the USA.

Another inspiring concept from Logan here. It’s so simple, when we first saw it, we weren’t sure if it had enough elements to display the time – it appears to be one long spiral. But read on! Read the rest of this entry »

Watch The LED Flower Watch Design Bloom

September 15th, 2010

Design submitted by Christophe from France.

This is far out man! We’ve definitely not seen anything quite like this on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog yet but we like the fun, playful vibe. It’s colors are psychadelic and kaleidoscopic – do you dig this design?

Christophe says: “Use the flowers to read the time. It’s a flower watch and we can read the hours with two flowers but a litle draw is better than a long text. Finally a watch more feminine.” Read the rest of this entry »

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.
