Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
This is “Hypercube Analogue” an analogue version of the original Hypercube design that featured on the blog back in July 2012.
Peter says: I wanted to keep the same kind of faceted geometric cube shape that looks somewhere between architecture and jewelry, but this time with an conventional analogue time telling format.
This design would use a conventional analogue movement to power two faceted watch “hands”. The lower hand displays the hours and the upper displays the minutes. I imagine the hands to be make of coloured transparent plastic with a coating or capping moulding over the top, this allows them to be illuminated by an LED mounted in the watch face underneath them, this light would shine out from one of the corners of the faceted hands to help highlight the time. The facets around the outside of the display have this time been divided into 60 markers. The hour markers are highligted to aid time telling.
The form of this watch is inspired by the simple geometry of a cube, using 3D facets to display the time giving the watch a jewelry look. The proportions should suite all wrist sizes and are aimed at the unisex market. This design suites a multitude of LED colours and materials giving this watch a mass appeal.
