Sam says: This is a very simple idea this time. I thought about letting tally mark numbers tell the time and instantly wanted it to be on an e-paper display – thin, white, simple. I’m not sure about how the watch should look like. There shoudn’t be too much details to leave space for own associations, it should be elegant and unisex of course. The numbers could appear through an animation that looks like counting up to the current time. The time could refresh every minute or just stay until a button is pressed. Then there would mostly be a confusing amount of tally marks on the display just making people think “well that’s not the time on his wrist, so why are there numbers?”. Pressing the button would erase the numbers, also through an animation, and rewrite the actual ones. I called the watch Yunari, which is a Japanized version of the word unary, the basic numbering system behind this concept.
