Watch design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Arashi” after the Japanese word meaning “storm”. It was inspired by a number of things, including the phrase “Time is an abstract concept”, modern art and, of course, thunderstorms!
The strap is made from a man-made material and there are 2 buttons for displaying the time, date and thunderstorm animation. The watch is USB rechargeable via a computer.
The time and date are displayed in a simple but slightly unusual way. The 4 lightning bolts in the display are made up from straight lines that can be illuminated individually. The number of illuminated lines in each lightning bolt gives the corresponding digit in the 4-digit time or date. In addition, when the watch is in “time mode” one of the 5 circles, which serve to simulate raindrops hitting the ground, is illuminated every 10 seconds until all of them are lit. When exactly 60 seconds has elapsed the 5 illuminated circles go out.
A fun thunderstorm animation can be played by pressing both buttons together once.
Anyone who likes art, nature and fun gadgets.
It’s original, colourful and eye-catching.
