RetroSynth LED Watch Design

November 6th, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Adwin from The Netherlands.

Adwin says he I likes old synthesizers and computers so this was the inspiration for his design. The time is displayed in three stages: the red circle on the left shows hour blocks 1-12 and the green circle on the right shows 10 minute blocks and then single minutes. Read the rest of this entry »

Segment Your Time Watch Design

November 5th, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Stefano from Italy.

Stefano says “divide a square into 29 triangles and this is the ideal number to represent the time.” A geometric concept that divides the time into hour and minute segments using triangles. Quite a simple design that needs a little calculation to read, but we’re sure this wouldn’t take long once you get the hang of it. It appears that the display would be made up of either LCD cubes or digital tube LEDs with a silk screen over the top to show the triangular effect. Let Stefan know what you think about his design and whether you’d wear it. Read the rest of this entry »

(English) Design submitted by Kevin from the USA.

A Watch Design With A Circular View Of Time

October 23rd, 2010

(English) Submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

Another beautiful concept from Laszlo here. He explains it as a “circular view of time”. There are two variations; a silver version for day time which uses LCD to show the time and a black version for night time that uses LEDs to display the time. As you can see, this design is clear and intuitive to read; 12 hours, 5 groups of 10 minutes and 9 single minutes in three separate segments make up the time. The pattern on the display changes constantly as time progresses. Read the rest of this entry »

A Watch Design That Is Dotty But Makes Sense

October 23rd, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: “I was inspired by the recent minimalist watch posted on the blog, as well as the R75 watch from Tokyoflash Design Studio.

“The display is simply dots arranged in a rectangular array, but using different colors. The large digits for hours (in blue) can be easily distinguished from the smaller digits (in green) for minutes. This design will most likely be rather large, and therefore will be more appropriate for men. The display of digits inside of other digits is different from many other designs posted so far.” Read the rest of this entry »

Is it an Alien? No, it’s a Watch Design!

October 23rd, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick says “this is a response to my “Minimalist Watch” that was not, at that time on the blog (I thought it was really too simple). I had already sketched this “Alien Watch” in pencil, and I dared not to create a rendering on my computer. It’s completely out of tune with its exuberance of complex shapes.” Read the rest of this entry »

An LCD Watch Design For Squares

October 17th, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Laszlo from Hungary.

A simple time way to read the time, integrated into a simple case design. Laszlo suggests this design would use OLED to display the time but could alternatively use LCD blocks and then, like the Tokyoflash Rogue watch, could light up to highlight the time in green as on the example picture.

Flying Watch – LEDs in Orbit

October 4th, 2010

(English) Design submitted by Patrick from France.

The innovation in this concept LED watch is the “Free Push” which enables the LEDs to illuminate with the push of a finger or other body part without using the other hand, with a”beep” sound when pressed on the half-sphere center (see figure below). “If you have one hand occupied, you can turn the clock on against the cheek or on the hip!” Read the rest of this entry »
