Design submitted by Ignacio from Spain.
Ignacio says: This is a redesign of my first idea published on tokyoflash blog, Ronu. I always loved my first idea, but in 2011 (the year I designed it), I had no idea of 3D, as you can see. It’s some ugly the design I did, isn’t?
That’s why I redesign it, trying to do the best I know to date, trying to refresh it, to upgrade it.
This time, trying to adapt it to the present day, I thought it will incorporate a e-paper screen, which fits so well to the design.
The read is simple. The horizontal mark facilitates where the exact hour is showed, to the far right (where would be the number 3 on a classic watch).
From right to left (or inner ring to outer), hours, minutes, and seconds (in date mode, it would be month, day, and year).
As new features over the previous design, this includes the seconds, an alarm, display date, and touch sensitive screen (with a simple configuration to make it easy to change the time or date, set an alarm, turn the backlight on or switch between modes).
It’s a modern, futuristic, cool, strange but striking watch. I see normal people who likes minimalism, strangeness, functionalism, simple but effective.
Though technically I don’t know if e-paper refresh fast enough to my idea, its display. The idea of see every hour, every minute and second in the screen and see the time is continuously moving, flowing.
It is exactly the opposite of an analog clock. Is stop the needles and move the time.
It is a watch where needles are stopped but time goes on, and you can only see how the future is coming to the present moment. <(possible future watch slogan? hehehe)>
