6colors grey

Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.

Ignacio says: The original idea came from my brother Jose. He showed me a sketch with 4 crosses and I helped to develop it and made the renders.

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: I was trying to find something new, thinking about ratios of rotation for each hand. An image of three sprockets came to mind, each with a ratio of 60:61 relative to the one before. Thus the minute hand rotates one revolution more than the second hand every minute. Read the rest of this entry »

plus_nine_japan_themed_analog_watch_design_01

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: “Two ideas inspired me to come up with this watch design. The first came from thinking about Japan a lot these days. I have seen people wearing the white space with the red dot (the Japanese flag) in many variations. Be it a sticker or a button or a cap. I wanted to design a wrist watch that reminds me, that there is always a future for Japan. Other people have their own thoughts about it… My second idea was to make a simple and unusual analog watch design.

Design submitted by Jordan from Canada.

Jordan says: “The simplest eye, such as one found in micro-organisms, does nothing but detect whether the surroundings are light or dark. This eye, however, doesn’t even do that. I wanted an eye-like watch face that was both minimalistic, and visually appealing. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: “Ninjas attacked me as I was walking to work. I had only my wits to save me. As everyone knows, if there is a lone Ninja, he can fight off an entire army by himself, but if there is a large group of them, they drop like flies. This is the law of the Ninja, I’m not sure why that is, but there you have it. From this encounter came the notion of a watch made of Ninja tools.
