Peter says: This is “Mesh” a back to basics disc type analogue watch.
The inspiration for this concept is the old “mysteron” UFOs from the “Captain Scarlett” animated tv show from yesteryear. The UFO spun as it flew and had a metallic wire frame look to it which really caught the light. I have tried to get a similar feel without being too literal.
Andrew says: BLINK: is a LCD digital watch that takes it inspiration from a human / animal Eye.This watch can constructed from various materials: See the Diagrams provided. This watch has an always on display, but after a certain period of inactivity say 1 minute, the Screen’s Eyelids Close & the digits become hidden from View.
Sam says: I was trying to find a minimalistic style for an analog watch without losing reading comfort.
The idea is simple. So simple that I’m still not sure, if this hasn’t been thought of before. There is a ring with a gap that tells the hour. The part of the ring, that’s missing, wanders around it and tells the minutes. Done.
Nico says: I like Tokyoflash watches ever since I read gizmag articles about Tokyoflash. In particular, I like the Kisai Rogue Touch Pocket Watch, how the twelve large blocks on the outer ring tells the time.
I then think how else I can tell time with a similar concept but adding additional information and not make it more complex. That is how I come up with a pie chart style that divides the watch into two parts: dark and bright/day and night.
Heather says: I was playing around with the idea of having a 3D sort of feel to the display, when I noticed that if I use different heights for LEDs, I could make a pretty readable digit-inside-digit display, and the watch would still have a really cool look when LEDs are off. I call this design Relief.
