January 31st, 2014

Design Submitted by Logan from the USA.

Logan says: The watch colors are inspired by the amber, green, and white monochrome monitors from the early days of personal computing.  The strap is like gray ribbon cables.  The square shape — a CPU.  Overall, the design is meant to evoke nostalgia for the vintage computing experience.  Even people who did not live through it have seen it in countless movies and TV shows, and associate that imagery with classic computer cool.

Design submitted by Tom from Norway.

Tom says: I am currently at the second year of a Bachelordegree in Mediadesign. This idea came to me during a schoolproject in a class named “Informationdesign”, where we had to choose amongst different kind of topics in a mandatory exercise (we had to pass in order to get to take the exams). I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.

Play_2-37

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: The watch is a Touch screen LCD/LED hybrid. It uses a dot matrix composed of Triangles instead of squares. I made this design very music friendly, when a track from your playlist comes up, you can swipe right for next, left for previous. The outer ring is not dissimilar to Rogue Touch and On Air, so the functionality will be familiar to Tokyoflash fans.

Dark Star 08

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Christmas is always a time of inspiration, for some its a time for religious inspiration, for others it might be a time of inspiration to spend more time with friends and family. For me being a watch designing geek I find it a source of inspiration for a concept. In this case the focus of inspiration was a star shaped christmas tree decoration. The points of which were 3d and faceted. This form inspired the display of this design, aptly name “Dark Star”

They are still amazing that they are simple enough for children to be able to make reasonable models of them, yet then can be quite elaborate at times and all can be very accurate. This is a concept to bring that time keeping method with you at all times and available, sunshine or not.

‘Deflection’ analog watch uses optical distortion to tell the time

January 3rd, 2014
Deflection-08

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: Back in August 2012 I submitted a design called “Grid” which displayed the time in a very simple analogue format using a projected grid onto slightly 3D looking hands or discs. This gave the watch a retro futuristic look but would have been tricky to make due to the projection element.

This design called “Deflection” gets around this issue but retains the retro futuristic look.
