Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: “I have recently done a couple of designs that looked a little like an eye which made me think more about Irises.
This design is very much inspired by a camera iris or shutter, which works in a similar way to the iris of a human eye but is much simpler. I found that the iris/shutter look not only looked dynamic but also lent itself to some unusual looking digits, “Aperture” was born.
The time or date is displayed in a phased digital style, each number is shown in sequence to make up the time. The digits are created by the iris shaped segments (this could be either backlit LCD or LED).
When the time is not being told the display could be animated or show the seconds constantly ticking away (LCD always on).
The iconic iris/shutter shape combined with an embossed lens gives the watch an unusual but dynamic look. This may appeal to those who like naturally inspired designs or techies alike.
This design may be a perfect gift for those with interest in photography for example.
The constantly animated display should also appeal to those with a playful disposition. Continue down the page to see these.
This design stands out due to its Iris/shutter ispired display, 3D looking lens and unusual digits.
The case and strap are subtle enough for the majority and the face is interesting enough for the hardcore Tokyoflash fans.”
