Anacube: A geometric, analogue style LCD watch.

March 13th, 2013
Anacube 01

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Since my participation in the blog I have had a few ideas for watch design inspired by cube like forms. 3D Unlimited is one of my favourite TF designs and I love the simple but cryptic looking geometry. I have often thought it would be great if it was possible to create an analogue version. “Anacube” was the result. This design also takes a few cues form the internationally recognised puzzle “Rubik” cube.

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

4-Talking-Watch-OK

Design submitted by Patrick from France.

Patrick says: Often my friends tell me that at Tokyoflash watches are very beautiful, but they are complicated to decipher. So for once (the exception proves the rule), I reflected on a watch very easy to read, so that as many can benefit from advanced technology and unique know-how of the team Tokyoflash.

Design submitted by Sam from Gemany.

March 1st, 2013
zoom_watch0957

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I started to think about a cool way to show numbers by making use of the negative space.  So I tilted the digits, and zoomed in, cutting off the upper left and bottom right corner of each digit, which surprisingly does not affect the ability to identify them.

VISE watch using Electroluminescent sheet technology

February 7th, 2013
vise_men_1259

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: The last TF Blog Progress Report expressed interest in new technologies, such as EL sheet, which is somewhere between LCD and LED. At first, I just wanted to make a cool looking unisex design with vertically stretched always on glowing numbers. When I designed the numbers, they appeared to me like they were being squeezed together from the sides, like they were in a vise.  So I named the concept VISE.  Then I thought about what a vise actually does, and I realized that this concept can go further.  I can solve the problem of watches being too big/clunky for ladies.

January 31st, 2013
sam-jerichow-transition-01-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: This is a project, I couldn’t properly sketch for on paper. I imagined a pattern that consists of LCD lines with different thicknesses. I wanted to create a cascaded gradient from dark to bright (or vice versa) that contains the time telling numbers. The lines of the backgrounds and the adjacent numbers should be interlocking and create a black and white mesh.
