Firdaus & Heather say: The display for this LCD watch concept, Codex Cube, was inspired by the Kisai 3D Unlimited display. By using triangular digits (originally developed for our previous Codex submission) instead of rectangular ones, we can display two digits on each “face”, allowing room for hours, minutes, and alas, the ever-changing seconds.
This sporty, yet fashionable unisex watch has a two-tone hexagonal case with a two-tone strap. The colored part of the two-tone case highlights the hours, whose digits are shown in the negative, while the minutes and seconds are shown in the positive.
The digits of the time are read in the same fashion as those in the Kisai 3D Unlimited watch – top, left side, right side. The size of the Codex Cube watch is intended to be similar to that of the 3D Unlimited as well.
The dynamic display is cryptic looking, yet quite readable. Though there have been other submissions featuring a positive and negative display, this one stands out as it highlights this quirky feature in a unique two-tone case.
