Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This idea is a variation of a previous design called “supernova“. This version uses a LCD display framed by a castleated bezel that divides the face into hour zones. The centre of the display features mode indicators.
The time is told in 15 minute increments aranged in groups of 4 at the hour positions as per an analogue clock face. At the 12 o’clock position a group of 15 single minutes (+ 3 x 15 minute blocks). These groups are framed and divided by the castleated bezel. The empty centre of the display offers itself nicely to mode, am/pm, alarms, chine and date icons, aswell as branding possibilities.
This design has a technical and industrial look which will mostly appeal to guys of most ages.
That said if the proportions could be kept similar to “Blade” and was available in a range of finishes it may also appeal to the ladies too.
The time telling of this design is away from the norm but intuitive for the majority to understand. The 3D castleated bezel gives the watch a technical industrial look which should help this design stand out from others.
