Insular LED watch has robotic column of lights

June 14th, 2013
Preview-Ani-1_opt

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I had an image in my head for a semi-organic shaped watch with a narrow LED display. The image had a alien robot kind of look which was industrial but not too aggressive in its language. ”Insular” was the outcome.

Vertebrae: If Aliens wore watches

June 14th, 2013
Vertebrae 07

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Ever since I started submitting designs for the blog I have been trying to think of a nice design based on Armour, Exoskeletons, and Mecha. This design is inspired by those things to achieve an bio-mechanical look. I wanted an industrial feel with a technical detailed look. “Vertebrae” is the result.  This one probably isn’t for the ladies.

CODE watch uses alien binary symbols

June 11th, 2013
CODE-Stainless-Steel-LED-watch-1

Design submitted by Wilhelm from South Africa.

Wilhelm says: The CODE: Inspired by the combination of my love for binary LED watches, industrial art and stainless steel, the idea came up for a watch with a cryptic code in its display that stands out to be interesting and eye catching all the time, whether the LEDs are on or off, something many LED watches are lacking.

Helicoil watch spirals up your wrist

June 10th, 2013
Helicoil MkII 6

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: From the beginning of my involvement with this blog I have had a fascination with trying to show the time in 3D. One of my early design that did this was called “Rotor” which had an analogue watch hand that showed the minutes like a conventional analogue watch but the hours were shown in the vertical plane. This works and makes for an interesting concept, trouble is of course that this makes for a clunky form and would be difficult to make.

‘Tentacle’ bio-mechanical alien watch

June 10th, 2013
Tentacle-01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This design is inspired by a combination of sci-fi and the natural world. I wanted to come up with a design that has a simple clutter free bio-mechanical look with a retro feel that could be worn as a piece of jewellery that happens to also tell the time. “Tentacle” was the result which looks like a cross between an arm from a “War of the worlds” tripod and a crustacean.

RESET watch tilts time to your wrist movement.

June 7th, 2013
sam-jerichow-reset-00_opt

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This watch concept is a proposal for the usage of an accelerometer. The tilting angle of the watch could define the look of the display. Only one special angle lets the watch show the time in a readable fashion. The wearer could define this angle by pressing a button when facing the display. Doing so would RESET the display. Any other angle different from the defined one, causes the numbers to dissolve. The bigger the tilting angle, the stronger the effect.

Kuantos3D

Design submitted by Clarence-Junius from the USA.

Clarence-Junius says: I got the idea for the Kuantos while watching my collector’s edition of Stargate: Atlantis. I wanted to use the stargate theme as a base for this design without stepping on any toes. Close attention to details help me keep this design original.

May 24th, 2013
NEW-part-time2-1248

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: My brother actually came up with the idea for a watch called PART TIME, and originally designed the digits for it.  I submitted these digits back then, but did not have a good presentation for it, so it never showed up on the blog.  Now that my 3D skills have improved, I decided it is time for me to resubmit.

Discus Analogue watch with LED

May 15th, 2013
Discus 04

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: This is Discus, a back-to-basics disc style analogue watch. The styling is influenced by retro sci-fi as well as more modern sci-fi films.  I wanted to design a disc analogue watch that was in theory easy to make but still looked exciting.

To boldly go where no other watch has gone before!

May 9th, 2013
Excelsior-01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have submitted a few analogue designs in the past and most were perhaps a little too imaginative. They tended to be technically un-feasible and required expensive bespoke mechanisms to allow them to work. For this concept I decided to go back to basics and use a traditional disc style analogue time telling using similar construction to “Uzumaki”

Echo E-paper LCD analog watch display

May 2nd, 2013
1

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I was sketching for an analog based sci-fi E-paper display based on half circles. I took the advantage of E-paper towards LCD to hide and create display gaps whenever pleasing. So I created these half circle segments whose repetition, the echoing, has a deeper meaning for the time telling. Read the rest of this entry »

Astrolabe watch helps navigate though the space–time continuum

April 19th, 2013
astrolabe_2

Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.

Anders says: Scribbling away one day, I sketched a display with curving lines across it. It looked to me like some sort of scanner display as seen in countless SF films. A few more lines and I had a concept; Astrolabe. The always-on OLED display adds visual punch.

Retrograde LCD watch with 24hr time.

3D view

Design submitted by Matt from Canada.

Matt says: I love retrograde, & bi-retrograde, watches for their time-telling clarity. So I made a few sketches & convert one of them into an LCD watch.
