Design submitted by Sam from Germany.
Sam says: Searching for a cryptic but at the same time simple way to tell the time, I came up with horizontal lines, that seem elevated whenever a number has to be shown.
The lines are divided into segments and all the segments that are out of line tell the time. This looks really cryptic at first, takes a little time to recognize and is really simple after a while.
I suggest a reveal mode that shows the clean time when needed and that trains the eyes by the repeated comparison with the cryptic mode display.
As for the watch, I chose a black glass block between two metal plates. The adjacent case components look like bigger strap segments, making the glass block look like an unusually slim case.
Display and case fit together well. This and the transition into the straps make a geeky and stylish watch.
