2nd model_LED

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I had this idea while I was waiting for my oven element to heat.

I made 2 models with a continuous line of LCD segments/LED’s lights and 2 models with 3 unconnected “elements”. It’s an hour/minute watch with alarm and date feature. To tell the time you simply have to look for the segments/lights that are/is ON/OFF.

Smple-1

Design submitted by Chingiz from Kyrgyzstan.

Chingiz says: I sat by the river and thought why modern watches don’t tell the true time. Because all known classic and digital watches repeat everyday. But we consume our lives/time/ like water, fuel or cigarettes and we must see it being exhausted constantly.

sam-jerichow-KOMET-00

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I like minimalistic analog watches. They are so relaxed and can look so styslish. So I sketched for a simple but still diversified pair of watch hands. For this watch concept I am using two transparent foils with cleverly placed free zones and imprinted gradients, both placed above a plain white background that could be lit up, if technically possible.

Design submitted by Tom from Norway.

Tom says: I am currently at the second year of a Bachelordegree in Mediadesign. This idea came to me during a schoolproject in a class named “Informationdesign”, where we had to choose amongst different kind of topics in a mandatory exercise (we had to pass in order to get to take the exams). I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.

‘Deflection’ analog watch uses optical distortion to tell the time

January 3rd, 2014
Deflection-08

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in August 2012 I submitted a design called “Grid” which displayed the time in a very simple analogue format using a projected grid onto slightly 3D looking hands or discs. This gave the watch a retro futuristic look but would have been tricky to make due to the projection element.

This design called “Deflection” gets around this issue but retains the retro futuristic look.
