Design submitted by Heather from the USA and Sam from Germany.
Heather & Sam say: Tenji (点時) is Japanese and can be translated to “dotted time”. The basic idea is using classic digits and replacing each horizontal line segment by a dot. Sam and Heather had a collaboration before and after sharing some thoughts about the basic idea, another collaboration was born.
Time telling on the Tenji is pretty simple. The digits might look unusual at first, but once you know how they were made, it’s easy. They are aligned in a dynamic angle, so you may tilt your head slightly to the right to read the four digits along the diagonal of the case. It is an always on LCD display on top of a neon cyan background. Each number is embedded in a black band-like inset that wraps around the edges of the minimalistic cubic case. The slight resemblance to the Kisai Sensai was highly welcome. The soft silicone straps make a nice contrast to the metallic case.
Anyone who loves ultramodern and futuristic unisex watches and prefers an always-on, read-at-a-glance display will love this little beauty!
Tenji expresses LCD in a new stylish way and is a fresh mix of geekiness and minimalism.
