Laszlo says: This watch keeps its LCD screen always on. The built in light sensor is activate the backlight in dark environment. The upper two digits is the hours the two of the middle is the minutes and the lower two digits is the seconds.
Take a walk between the signs and explore the numbers!
Peter says: I was trying to think of a very simple and intuitive way of showing the time with essential a digital “one handed analogue” type of time telling format. The easiest way it seemed to do this is to have a hand moving in two directions, rotationally for one part of the time telling and towards and away from the pivot for the other. I soon realised after looking at one of my older designs “Tri-Ripple” that the most intuitive way of doing this is an expanding orbit around the pivot point. Like a satellite slowly moving slowly away from the object its orbiting.
Matt says: “This idea came while I was working on another design (the AD 1224). It’s a combination of an analog hour display with digitally displayed minutes and second (or month and day ). Continue reading →
Laszlo says: What sort of watch display would make heads turn? Perhaps one that looks like only half a watch. The hexagonal case of the “HALF WATCH” is split vertically so that the LCD display screen takes up only the right-hand portion of the hexagon.
Peter says: This is “Raptor”. I didnt really have a preconception for this design. I simply wanted to create an organic design with a simple time telling method. I started off sketching simple organic snake like forms which subconsciously became more engineered.
Pawel says: I have been a fan of your watches for several years now. After I discovered the blog I was excited by the idea that a design of mine may come to life! So I started developing a design that would be entirely new while appropriate to your brand and technically easy to implement.
