Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Tri/5/9” a back to basics 12/5/9 LED design.
I was trying to think of a simple and intuitive 12/5/9 watch and the most logical format I could think of was a triangular layout. One side for hours, one for tens of minutes and one for single minutes.
The time is told by three rows of LEDs arranged around the three sides of the triangular shaped watch body. The left hand row describes the hours, the bottom row describes groups of ten minutes and the right hand row describes single minutes. The remaining areas of the triangular layout can be illuminated which allows for interesting animations and also allows the display to be inverted.
This design is simple and intuitive so should appeal to old school TF customers, the triangular shape gives the watch an unusual look that should appeal to the more adventurous.
The simple layout and glowing display should combined with opportunity of striking animations sets this design apart from others.
