Design submitted by Anders from Sweden.
Anders says: I was looking at animations of some ultra high-end watches and inspiration struck to make something with a similar feel, but less complicated and more affordable. I wanted to use a standard analog movement, but that soon proved impossible. Hopefully the visual impact of the display exceeds the increased complexity.
Time telling should be easy: the outer ring of numbers tell the hour by the only digit which isn’t scrambled, and single minutes are told by the inner digits. The current 5-minute group is indicated by the lines between the numbers: the two lines that match up mark the spot.
The display is made up of stacked discs which rotate a certain amount each hour/minute to reveal the next number. The watch itself should be metal to give a solid, quality feel. In its current form it probably appeals more to men, but a feminine version should not be impossible.
Backlighting the display should be a given. I came up with some options when I was working on it; most obviously to have three numbers instead of two, to ease readability. Colour and material options are almost endless. Its unusual technical solutions should ensure it has a considerable wow-factor.
