OctoThorpe LED watch is a digital watch with a cryptic twist.

June 1st, 2012

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: The inspiration for this watch came from the number sign (hash, pound sign, rarely octothorp in different variations). This symbol divides an area into nine squares.

I sketched around for a digital display and quickly came to the double square numbers, you can see in the images. I took the name Octothorpe due to it’s emphasis on the number 8. There are 8 squares forming the time display and each of them is made of 8 segments.

CRAX watch breaks up time into fragments.

May 28th, 2012

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says : I was looking at a digital clock whose traditional 7-segment digits were mostly trapezoidal, with a visible gap between the segments.  I thought, “Why do the segments need to be trapezoids?”  I sketched some digit layouts using various arrangements of seven polygon segments with pronounced spaces between them, until I came up with the CRAX digits.

Division Preview Animation

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have noticed a trend with the latest releases of new watches that TF prefer designs that are simple/feasible and predominately LCD.

So I decided to create a watch which fitted this criteria. I had two designs in mind, one was a four dialled lcd analogue design that shared the same time telling method a “hunter time killer” and a new time telling method which involves lines dissecting a shape to create numbers of segments. I decided to merge these designs to create a very simple time telling method that would be very easy to implement. Division was born. Read the rest of this entry »

May 23rd, 2012

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: There is this quote: “Time is a predator that stalks us all of our lives.” It made me think if that’s true.
