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.

Design submitted by Gordon from the USA.

Gordon says: This is ICON. A watch that can be customized by choosing from a palette of materials to fit the wearer’s style.  I was going for a minimalistic style that was rugged and modern, but not too rugged.  I think this watch is unique because it uses what i like to call a 11-4-11 method of telling time.  That is to say 11 lights for the hours, 11 lights for the 5 minute intervals and 4 lights for the single minutes.
