Justin says: I wanted to strip away as much as possible when it came to designing this watch. Hexagons seem popular, so I began with that. Then I gradually took it down to the minimum amount of LED’s whilst still retaining that ever so crucial “ease of use”.
Patrick says: Seeking a reading with concentric circles, I arrived on a pattern approaching darts or share a cake. With technology “e-paper”, that allows the use of an extremely flat case and contrasted drawings for reading.
Lukas says: There is something magical about a big city skyline, something that makes you feel free… During the day you can see the ivory skyscrapers basking in the sun, reflecting its rays. At nightfall, when the lights and neons start shining, you can feel a chill breeze on your face. This is what Tokyosky is all about.
Justin says: This design originally started off life as a concept called Diced. The idea came to me all of a sudden and i began doodling, the rest, is history. I wanted a simple yet effective watch face so i stuck with the good old tried and tested analogue format.
Peter says: The name is “Borgy” in origin, as the watch will be linked to a smart phone creating a small collective. The phone will be “1 of TWO”
The basic premise for my design is that the borders of the icons tell the time in an always-on column on the display. This column is easily seen as it is displayed inverted to the rest of the display and continues a contrasting stripe that runs through the strap. (I have used a metallic LCD with black background for my examples. This used in conjunction will coloured glass gives a nice contrast)
Sam says: The inspiration for this watch is a particle collider. The basic idea is to have two different types of particles coming from the straps and colliding in the case and explode in a pattern that tells the time.
