Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says : The inspiration for this watch comes from the infinite tunnel you can create with two mirrors and from the way, the Kisai 3D Unlimited handles LCD. My idea is to combine the tunnel effect with a colored LCD display and an interesint way to show numbers.
There are four rhombically aligned numbers of which the two top ones show the current hour and the two bottom ones the current minute. The seconds are shown by crosswise positioned numbers in the center. All six numbers form a display that looks like alien hieroglyphs or a circuitry – cryptically looking but actually simple. By placing a mirror below and above the display, it gets visually repeated and forms a vertical tunnel, “Schacht” in german. The top mirror is transparent on its backside and allows us to see the display.
It’s a watch for anyone with a geeky side and a sense for cryptical ornament.
The watch looks confusing at first but isn’t hard to read, once you get used to it. The tunnel effect gives the display an interesting and eye-catching depth.
