Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Exoskeleton” a variation on a theme of an earlier design called “Vertebrae“.
Like Vertebrae this design is inspired by armour and exoskeletons and features armour like plates that make up the body of the watch. The gaps between these plates supplies the time telling display.
The time is told in either a digital or 12/5/9 format by stripes of LEDs between the armour plates. This gives the watch an easily read but cryptic looking display which is visually interesting and tactile. The stripes of LEDs also allow for a range of animations and colour combinations.
This design has a bio-engineered futuristic look which should appeal to fans of anime, mecha and gaming. I imagine this would generally appeal more to guys but in the right finishes could have a jewelry like quality which may also entice the ladies.
The armoured look in combination with two intuitive time telling methods sets this design apart from others.
