Design submitted by Heather from the USA.
Heather says: I was analyzing the differences among the digits 0-9, and how some digits share common parts, or shapes. Each of the following groupings share the same bottom half: 0,6,8 – 3,5,9 – 1,4,7 – 2.
The bottom half of the HALFTIME display is engraved, and unchanging. This tactile element is a nice feature for the watch face. The four bottoms available are enough to create any digit from 0-9, when matched with the appropriate LCD top half. The widths and heights of the top halves also vary, to make it easier to identify the corresponding bottom.
This watch is a unique shape, with a cryptic element, and is futuristic and stylish.
The combination of changing and unchanging parts of digits is a relatively new concept. (Sam and I did use the idea once before on our MERGE concept.)
