Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Y2Z” (Y two Z) I wanted to come up with a simple belt orientated design that looks really technical and Sci-fi but was ultimately makeable.
I decided to use a conventional analogue movement to power the belts which in turn would rotate around dolly wheels in a different orientation, hence the name “Y2Z”
The time is told by the three belts driven by wheels where the hands would normally be, the top belt displays the hours, the lower left belt 10 min groups (could be conventional minutes) and the third lower right belt single minutes (could be seconds as per conventional analogue movement) The controls for adjustment are on the reverse of the watch to save cluttering the design. The illumination is activated by tapping on the glass.
This design has a very technical look which may interest people who like mechanical products and fine engineering. The Sci-fi feel will broaden its appeal to a wider audience.
The illumination of the wheels adds to the sci-fi look.
The three belt configuration with the change in orientation helps this design stand out from the crowd. The unusual external shape differs it from others.
