Design submitted by Cory from the USA.
Cory says: “I’m a big fan of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and my favorite character was always the Cheshire Cat. I don’t much care for most of the depictions of the cat in popular culture, so I thought I would make my own. Most depictions of the cat are either too playful, or too sinister. I aimed to create a work of art that depicted the cat as mischievous, playful, and a tad sinister; one that is also a timepiece. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “I saw a documentary on TV about the “fifth pocket” on a a pair of jeans. They interviewed people on the streets and asked, “What is this little pocket for?” The most people said, it is for coins, chewing gum packages or condoms. Some people knew it was originally made to carry a pocket watch. After seeing this, I wanted to revive the initial usage of the fifth pocket also known as watch pocket. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Andreas from Germany.
Andreas says: “Watching the starcraft 2 trailer I saw Arcturus looking at his pocket watch. I liked the idea of a pocket watch, because nowadays watches are again more a lifestyle object than a necessity. I don’t like the old antique design style, so i decided to build my own. The result is a steam/cyber/retro punk pocket watch.” Read the rest of this entry »

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio, this time an adaptation of the Night Vision concept. This is a great alternative to wearing a watch in the traditional manner. The image below shows the time piece attached to a key ring but this is a concept that would also look great on a key chain or worn on a chain like a pocket watch. This design has blue LEDs, rather than green in the previous design. Do you have an LED color preference?
The shape of this concept is unusual but is definitely original. As you can see, the time can be read at a glance; hours around the edge of the hexagonal shape, the gap in the lights showing the hour. Digital minutes in the center. Read the rest of this entry »

Design submitted by Garett Buttram from Canada.
Garett says: “These are two pocket watch designs. The first is a simple dartboard style design. Lights illuminate the display as time goes by. The second design is has more of a spiral display.”
I think this maybe our first submission of a pocket watch and we have two variations here; one with a more organic look, the other being more futuristic or maze like. I think the maze looking one may be a bit hard to read the hours on. Unless different colors were used or you may mistake the layer. This may be a good thing if you want the sensation of being drunk whilst looking at the time. It does look very cryptic.
The other more organic design is very easy to read the time on. It reminds me of a flower a bit, not sure how other people feel? Could make the design more directed to women perhaps. Tell us your thoughts on this LED pocket watch. Read the rest of this entry »
