Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Trylon” a 12-5-9 format LED watch.
I had an idea to design a watch based on the image of the “flux capacitor” from the time traveling Delorean from the “back to the future” movies. In the development stage I had more of a Cylon image in my head and ended up with something between a Cylon and the robot spaceships from the first star-wars films which had a “Y” shape face. The name “Trylon” came from the combination of the “Y” shape face and Cylon like lights.
The watch consists of three rows of LEDs in a “Y” shaped array using a 12-5-9 format. Between the three rows of lights there are three flush buttons for the various controls. The vertical row of lights describes 12 x hour blocks, the left lower row of lights describes 5 x 10 minutes blocks and the lower right displays 9 x single minutes.
The design has a very industrial sci-fi feel which will appeal to those who like engineered products and mechanical gadgets. The 12-5-9 time telling method will keep the interest of existing Tokyoflash customers who are comfortable with that method of time telling.
The geometric form combined with the the “Y” shaped array of LEDs makes this design stand out from others. The inner layer of the strap matches the colour of the LEDs which gives the watch a fun perspective.
