Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia.
Lloyd says: This LCD concept watch design is named “Keiro” after the Japanese word meaning pathway.
The time and date are displayed in a cryptic way, but are very simple to read once you know how. All you have to do is look at the ends of the 2 large digits, each of which is always either a ‘2’ or a ‘5’, and see which four small digits they are pointing to. Each of these large numbers forms a pathway connecting the first two digits and the last two digits in the time and date, hence the watch’s name. There is an additional non-cryptic mode that enables you to display the time (with seconds) and the date at the same time.
“Keiro” has an alarm and is USB rechargeable via a computer. It also has an EL backlight which makes the display easier to read at night. The watch’s case and strap are made from stainless steel and are available in silver or black. The LCD display is available in different colours and is “always on”.
This design would appeal to anyone who likes cool modern gadgets, puzzles, creativity and thinking “outside the box”.
It stands out because of its unique, quirky and easy-to-read cryptic display.
