Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: Since my participation in the blog I have had a few ideas for watch design inspired by cube like forms. 3D Unlimited is one of my favourite TF designs and I love the simple but cryptic looking geometry. I have often thought it would be great if it was possible to create an analogue version. “Anacube” was the result. This design also takes a few cues form the internationally recognised puzzle “Rubik” cube.
Anacube tells the time in an analogue format using two (could be three) faces of a digital cube.
The top face displays the hours in a ring of squares, the centre of the face contains an extra four squares which could be used for mode icons (PM, Alarm, Chime, Date etc).
One of the front two faces displays the minutes, the outer ring of squares of the face displays 5 minute groups, the middle four squares displays single minutes.
If the third face was utilised this could display seconds.
The faces can be illuminated using multi-coloured backlighting. These colours change intermittently to add to the “Rubik” cube look.
This design has a simple and easily recognisable analogue format which should give the watch mass appeal. The clean and clutter free geometry gives the watch a stylish and unisex appeal. This design should be suitable with old school TF fans as well as people who are new to the brand.
The cube like form combined with an intuitive analogue format displayed by a LCD with multi-coloured backlighting sets this design from others.
