Time-Card is your futuristic pocket watch.

July 4th, 2014
Time Card 2

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Being a fan of watches its hard to believe that there are people out there that dont like them.

Some of these people are also not keen on mobile phones let alone having to look at their phones to tell the time. So it seems there is a niche for a time telling device that is neither a phone or watch but is compact to be carried on one person.

Most people carrier a wallet or purse as debit cards and credit cards are a necessary evil of modern living so I decided to come up with a credit card sized clock that is compact enough to fit into a wallet or pocket or could be worn on ones person. The creativly named “Time-Card” was born.

Switch watch activated by brute force!

July 2nd, 2014
1-Asymmetrical

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick says: When I had presented my “Kuranku-Watch”, comments are deferred mainly on brittleness of crank (even if it activates only LEDs), thus for the “Switch-Watch”, the handle is much more “muscular”.

Quad-Warp : A twisted digital watch

July 1st, 2014
Quad-Warp 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was looking back at some of my older concepts, namely “Digicoil” and “Digital Warp“.

I have a real fondness for the digit style I used on those two concepts but neither design seemed to push the buttons of the blog voters for some reason. I noticed that the digit examples I used on “Digital Warp” for explanation purposes were actually quite nice in their own right. So I decided to give them one last outing “Quad-Warp” was born.

Trinary watch combines LED, LCD & different time methods for ultra customisation.

June 23rd, 2014
Trinary 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I seem to have developed a bit of a fondness for the 12/5/9 time telling method, which for me always suggest that the display should be split into three areas/segments (seems intuitive to do so)

I originally had an image in my head that was kind of performance car exhaust esc (think Pagani Zonda) but as I drew it up I realised that it resembled the warning sign for radiation.

Asymmetric LED watch is a cryptic fusion of analogue & digital (update)

June 13th, 2014
Asymmetric 05

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I wanted to come up with a simple LED watch that could display digits using as few LEDs as possible. I wanted the design to have a detailed industrial look, which would suit various finishes, materials and colours. I then decided with a couple of tweaks that a second time telling method was also possible.

Change your view with the twistable ASPECT watch

June 12th, 2014
aspect5

Design submitted by Lewis from the UK.

Lewis says: The idea was to create something interactive. A device that offered more than just digital features. Having a physical twisting action affect the digital display in the forms of animation or function goes beyond pressing a button.

Fingerprint e-paper watch exposes digital time.

June 9th, 2014
sam+pete_Fingerprint_06

Design submitted by Sam from Germany & Peter from the UK.

Sam & Peter say: When Pete’s Bio-Metric fingerprint watch concept showed up in the blog, I was like nooooooooo because I had some display tests ready by then – great minds think alike! No other fingerprint concept has been made since then (2011!) so I took my drafts and showed them to Pete. I thought, if there is a new fingerprint watch concept, he should be involved. Pete said yes in perfect english so he and I came up with some ideas for a watch.

Exoskeleton watch doubles as wrist armour.

June 6th, 2014
Exo 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is “Exoskeleton” a variation on a theme of an earlier design called “Vertebrae“.

Like Vertebrae this design is inspired by armour and exoskeletons and features armour like plates that make up the body of the watch. The gaps between these plates supplies the time telling display.

Excelsior LCD 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I was thinking about a design based on a round dial for hours in an analogue format and two separate displays for mins. I quickly realised that this layout reminded me of certain iconic sci-fi imagery. Excelsior LCD was born.

sam-jerichow-invasion-00

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The idea for Invasion came at the time when I worked on Vein. Both concepts share the idea of letting the end of a line represent an analog watch display number.

Sentinel watch keeps a robotic eye on you

May 14th, 2014
Sentinel-Preview-Ani_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Pater says: This design is inspired by the modern trend in car design for LED head lights.

These new lights are becoming far more futuristic, detailed and elaborate than the more traditional bulb and reflector type that they replace. Its this futuristic elaborate look that made me think of watch displays and how this could be incorporated.

“Sentinel” was the result.

Tri-Sector watch is a 3-sided alien timepiece.

May 7th, 2014
Tri-Sector-6

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: In recent months I have had a bit of a thing for triangular watches, sporting 12/5/9 time telling formats. For some reason (in my eyes) these two things seem to go togther very nicely. So here is another version called “Tri-Sector”.
