Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: “I had the idea to connect all watch hands in a row and giving “the analog watch” a new interpretation. The result is a polyline which crosses the display and bends in different ways. This gives the watch design a unique looking face.
The polyline is framed by a circle and touches it with its two ends. The longer part represents the seconds. Since they move quickly, one can easily see it’s the seconds. The other, shorter end is the minute hand. So the two watch hands which go from 0 to 60 touch the framing circle. The hours are shown by a short hand starting in the center of the display. To complete the polyline, the hour hand is connected to the minute hand by another segment. This segment seems to grow and shrink while the watch hands move along the day.
All this can be done with a bit tricky mechanism which is based upon traditional analog watch mechanisms. To emphasize the magic, the display is covered by a matte watch glass. So the different watch hands and the circle get blurred and melt together into a single image. I decided to let indicators away from the watch to not disturb that image.
This wrist watch design is for men and women who like, what I call difficult simplicity. If you like analog watches and arts, this is your watch. If you need to know the exact time, it’s not the right watch (except you can estimate angles really well).
It’s a sober watch with a funky analog display. It’s magically simple.”
