Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Decypher”. The display may look mysterious at first, but is actually very easy to decipher once you know the trick behind it.
Decypher has both a time and date mode. To see the digits in either mode, all you have to do is ignore the triangles and you’ll see that the remaining lines form digits. A cool feature of the display is that every digit, apart from the 8, can be displayed in more than one way by simply displaying different combinations of triangles. There is an explanatory diagram below.
This watch is USB rechargeable via a computer and the band is made from a man-made material that is animal friendly. The watch comes with a choice of several different coloured bands and the display is available in different colours too.
I feel this design would appeal to puzzle, game and sci-fi lovers in particular. It would also suit geeks and anyone who likes quirky modern things as well as thinking “outside the box”.
This design stands out because of its unique and original cryptic display which is also modern-looking and very simple to read. The fact that the same digit can be displayed in different ways also makes the display more interesting.
