Design submitted by Lewis from the UK.
Lewis says: The idea was to create something interactive. A device that offered more than just digital features. Having a physical twisting action affect the digital display in the forms of animation or function goes beyond pressing a button.
I tried to make the design simple in terms of manufacture but offer different levels of difficulty in the display to appeal to a greater market audience. The cryptic Mode shows the time in the 12:6:9 configuration. The 60th minute marker is ultimately useless but completes the aesthetics. I’d like to open this up to the blog members to discuss a better solution of showing the 10’s of minutes on a watch with 3 sections
The watch was designed to cater for new followers of Tokyo Flash looking for a beginners watch whilst keeping the traditional cryptic fans happy with the optional modes. The rotating screen adds a new level of interactivity which adds a separate unique selling point to the design, display and animations.
Using the watch to twist through setting the time/alarms/date is the first of its kind i believe. I’m a new member so don’t hold me to that. The shape again is unique. its been difficult to cater for a 3 section display but its certainly possible. The triangular display offers a bespoke typeface which compliments the design.
