Global watch revives retro sci-fi

Design submitted by Bryce from Belgium.

Bryce says: I’m a fan a geek vintage: pager, old computers, science fiction movie from the seventies/eighties, etc.

Since a long time, I dream about a watch with a vintage leather strap that is able to display time like a fictional computer in a (old) science fiction movie. I want a watch with a clean and simple design and a leather strap a little bit “handmade”.

I was fed up to wait for THE watch, so I designed it.

To keep the vintage spirit, I did it on a Pentium 2, with Windows 95 and Paint!

To tell the time, you just need to practice! Have a look at the example: it’s not that difficult. You just need to complete the police and you can see the numbers.

The real difficulty is the second indicator. It’s a point that goes all the time from left to right (30 steps for 30 seconds) and then from right to left. It’s in memory of the red light in front of K2000 in the Knight Rider (have a look at:

Geeks, nerds, ICT lovers, vintage addicts, fashion fellows, who want a watch with clock, date, chronometer and alarm.

Added values of my watch are the mix between vintage and design, and those really nice numbers.

  1. Hello Bryce, welcome to the blog.
    It’s nice to see one persons specific dream of “the” watch. I love the fact that you drew it up on a old computer to go with the retro theme, very artistic/poetic. I like this, it’s very tricky coming up with new digits that are like nothing seen before yet are still recognisable as numbers. They look good to me! My only tweak would be to either make the background slightly red or have red tinted glass to add to the retro feel. 5/Y best of luck! 😀


    • Hello Pete.

      Thx a lot for your feedback.

      I hope a lot of people will like my concept like you did (^_^)

      I love the idea to create something retro with retro tools. It was not easy to repair and install the laptop pentium 2! But, as you understand, it was important for me to respect the concept 🙂

      Have a nice day and thx again.



  2. Je collectionne les montres et j’avoue que j’aimerais ajouter celle-ci à ma collection car je la trouve originale avec son design très réussi!


  3. Très beau modèle, le mariage entre le moderne et l’ancien est vraiment très bien pensé!
    J’ai hâte de découvrir la collection complète!!!


    • Merci Bérénice! Pour une collection complète, il faudra petiente, même si j’ai déjà un deuxième modèle qui est dessiné.

  4. Extra, très bon concept, cela ne m’étonne pas de Brice au sommet de son art 😉
    NB : le temps n’existe pas !


  5. It’s very interesting indeed! It’s a happy combination of elegant and sophisticated in a classical way! I love it; 5 points without any doubt!

  8. Salut Bryce, 5 étoiles et Oui, en solidarité avec les personnes qui disent “septante” et qui comprennent ce que signifie une “Musique à bouche”.
    Bonne chance !


  9. I love it! 5 points! I really hope they will pass it in production 🙂 and I can wait to see a version for women!

    good luck Brice


    • Women version ? You are not the first woman who makes me this comment. It’s true that Tokyoflash doens’t sale watch for woman… They have to think about it… A smaller watch… more… like… girls power 😉 I already see it in my mind! Thx for your comment and have a nice w-end.


  10. Even though I’m always late, I’ll be glad to buy you one!

    Nice and catchy design this is all I need. Yes, N E E D! 🙂


  11. I’m agree with teh point of view of Jan: it’s perhaps to big but it’s a project so you can modifty it.

    In a way I had a look at your pic on Instagram and your prototypes are a really good argument to 😉

    So: 5***** for the vintage spirit and those amazing numbers.

    Good luck.



    • Hello Patrick22: well you have to be patient 😉 It’s a conquest. So the jury of TokyoFlash has to decide if my watch will be produced or not 😉 So, come back time to time to the website and cross your fingers for me :))))))
