Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This design is a back to basics LED (could be LCD) watch which features a narrow column of lights to describe the time. This narrow column of lights gives the watch a minimalistic – futuristic and mysterious look. Ideally this column would be semi transparent both front and back to show a hint of the internals and let light glow thru even when the display is off. The narrow dimension of the display allows for the material and finishes to do the talking.
The narrow array of lights would have the flexibility to describe the time in a variety of different styles, from vertical digits to 12/5/9 formats and many more inbetween.
I have shown the vertical digits and two 12/5/9 formats in my examples.
This arrangement would also allow for weird and wonderful animations.
The display could be all one colour or rows of different colour, ideally colour changing LEDs could be used so the wear could decide the combinations.
The simple time telling methods allows this watch to appeal to mass markets, the minimalistic and futuristic looks should keep the hard-core TF fans happy. The large un-cluttered surfaces give the watch a grown-up feel that should help it appeal to the more traditionalists.
The sci-fi looks, combined with expensive looking finishes and the minimalistic LED array allow this design to stand out in the crowd
