A colorful binary LED watch design that uses six bi-color LEDs to display the time behind a sleek smoked black lens. Red LEDs indicate hours, yellow LEDs indicate minutes. Binary is simple to understand when you know how and this format of time telling allows for a minimal but unique time display.
There are six bi-color LED lights used in this watch design. This theme was used in the popular Kisai Tenmetsu LED watch, where the color of the lights in one position change between red, yellow and green. In this unique watch design the transition is only between red and yellow which distinguishes between hours and minutes.
Binary is very simple to understand (once you know how). It’s just like going back to school and learning how to read an analog clock. In this watch design, there are six lights from the bottom to the top. These indicate 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 units of time. Therefore in the example shown in the animation below, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th lights are lit to show the hour in red (2+4+8 = 14 hours) and the 6th light is lit to show the minutes in yellow (32 = 32 minutes). So the time displayed is 14:32 or 2:32 PM.
This watch design also has a dual finish in black and silver as well as a butterfly clasp, closing the strap neatly to ensure a bracelet effect is achieved.
