(English) Design submitted by Lance from Australia.

Lance says: One night after a long day at work I parked my car in the city street and then proceeded to try and read the parking meter in the dark.  I pulled out my trusty phone to use the LED flash as a torch so I could read the meter.  Sure enough I dropped my phone on the concrete (smashing its screen in the process!).  After I got over the anger, the idea came to me.  Why not have a flash light built into a watch!  I’ve never seen someone drop their watch!

(English) Mercury analogue watch with liquid metal time telling

July 24th, 2014
Mercury 03

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a back to basics analogue design with a hint of sci-fi which would be easy to make and traditional in its time telling. “Mercury” was born.

The time telling is traditional analogue using off the shelf movements. This twist in this case is that the hands and markers are organic in form and look like that they are a splat or splash of liquid metal or some kind of gelatinous alien lifeform.

Swirl II 01

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

(English) Discreet & minimal watch with natural materials

July 8th, 2014
watch-concept-1

(English) Design submitted by Jacques from The Netherlands.

Jacques says: In a quest for a minimalistic watch I excluded all time reading functionality from the front of the watch and placed it on the side.

It’s actually just a very minimalistic watch on where the time can be read on the side. The dot light represents the hour hand and the ring light the minute hand. The time can be read rather easy but this of course also depends on the hour of the day.

The time reading functionality on the side leaving the front blank, creates a surprising effect, compared to the many watches that have frontal displays with numerous clocks and pointers etc.

(English) “Inverse” Drivers style analogue watch with mirror system.

June 3rd, 2014
Inverse 05

(English) Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in the day I did a design called “UFO” which featured a wrap around display that went around the perimeter of the watch and would have been useful as a driver’s watch.

Feasibility was one of the stumbling blocks for that design. Since that design, I have a had a few thoughts on how to make a drivers watch with a similar look but much easier to make.

I then had a eureka moment and realised that it could be done relatively easily using an off the shelf analogue movement.

(English) Minimalist ‘EInked’ ring-watch and companion wristwatch

June 2nd, 2014
front

(English) Design submitted by Clement from Singapore.

Clement says: I have been looking at watches with eink screens but i have not seen any pretty ones yet. Eink screens consume little power and should last long if used in a normal watch.(Current smartwatches have too many functions that consume power). Hence i’ll try my hand at designing a watch that suits my fancy. I also realized that ring-watches are quite cool but not many people wear them.
