Sam says: KAKU is a 12-5-9 concept that uses kanji with different stroke counts instead of numbers. The inspiration came when looking up a kanji in a dictionary. The kanji were sorted by components, reading and also the amount of stokes, that are required to write them.
Kyle says: I was inspired when looking at symbols from different languages, when I started to sketch some interlocking lines similar to letters of different cultures I came to the formation of these three ‘Linked’ lines.
Peter says: This is “Digital Warp” an always on LCD watch. This design just came from an image that popped into my head. The image was digits that were distorted around a circle “warped” if you like. So I just made four digits concentric wrapped around each other as if they were being sucked into a black hole in the centre of the display.
Paolo says: I wanted to design something totally different this time and I’ve always wanted a watch that allowed me to see the time naturally without having to pivot my wrist. This is that watch. The Bullet Time Watch.
Design submitted by Heather & Matthew from the USA.
Heather & Matthew say: The original idea was to put the digits into four quadrants, cutting each digit off down the middle and along the edges of the case in such a way that you can still determine what the digit would be.
