Design submitted by Brad from the USA.
Brad says: Sundials were brilliant in their day. They are still amazing that they are simple enough for children to be able to make reasonable models of them, yet then can be quite elaborate at times and all can be very accurate. This is a concept to bring that time keeping method with you at all times and available, sunshine or not.
This watch uses a gnomon on the face to simulate casting “shadows” that point to the hour. The minutes are shown at the bottom in either a sun or moon. Sundials do not recognize AM or PM, only daylight or night. At 0630 and 1830 the sun and moon switch. I chose an E-paper display, bringing together the oldest and newest technology together and due to overlapping in the symbols.
This watch is easy for anyone to read when you understand what you’re looking at. It is designed to be worn by any and all that wish to have a unique look.
This design is unique in its face cover with the gnomon on top. The sundial look is recognizable but has rarely ever been useful as a watch. It is also unusual in that it does not use AM/PM or the regular 24 hour method to display the time. Gotta use your head a bit with it.
