Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I was thinking about a design based on a round dial for hours in an analogue format and two separate displays for mins. I quickly realised that this layout reminded me of certain iconic sci-fi imagery. Excelsior LCD was born.
Excelsior LCD tells the time with a combination of analogue hours and digital minutes.
The hours are displayed in a round saucer like shape and the two digital displays below that look like engine nacells. The two nacelles also contain extra markers like am/pm, alarm, date etc. If seconds were deemed an important detail they could be displayed by the windows on the saucer section.
This design should appeal to sci-fi lovers due to its inspiration but is subtle enough to be suitable for the masses. The time telling is easy enough for the average Joe but different enough to be TF appropiate. The shape and constuction allow for a multitude of colour and finish combinations.
The sci-fi inspiration, easy time telling and ability to suit different materials and finishes helps this design to stand out from others.
UPDATE: Version without the bulkheads for those who prefer a more streamlined look.
