Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I was trying to come up with a simple but unusual time display using a bar graph like layout.
It would have been very easy and maybe a little predictable to use LEDs or LCD blocks to do this when I had a little Eureka moment and realised that it could be very easy to achieve with a standard analogue movement.
The basic premiss for this design is that there are 3 hands or printed discs in the shape of a spiral. The spirals originate in the center of the display and terminate 360degrees later at the perimeter of the display. These spirals when viewed through a window on the face of the watch look like a bar climbing its way upwards when they rotate. This is uber simple but very affective. The seconds hand/disc could have a coloured or mono-chrome pattern in the style of the spirals to give the watch a sense of animation and movement.
This concept could be styled very classically or very futuristic, allowing it to be aimed at specific markets. The simple and elegant time telling method should appeal to traditionalists and TF fans alike.
The simple analogue movement combined with spirally goodness separates this design from others! 😀
