Design submitted by Justin from the UK.
Justin says: This watch is taken from my Smart-Watch design submitted a little while ago.
Part of that design was of a time-telling mode called “Shattered”…this seemed to be something that people liked the look of…so here it is…Brkn.
Brkn (Broken) is an analogue watch at heart. Hidden amongst the broken glass are two shards which have little lines across them, these are the hands…the biggest indicates the 10 x Mins, the smaller, the hours. Single mins 0-9 are displayed in the centre, shown in this design as a cracked hole.
The E-paper would also be beneficial in displaying new time modes. “Easy” (little cracks zig-zagging off to the hour & Min points) all the way up to “Hard” (A completely obliterated screen).
Its hard to say who would wear it as nowadays you cant be too sure. Maybe those who enjoy a prank now and then would find it entertaining due to its broken look and its ability to fool others into thinking its smashed. 8)
Id hope it goes further than that though as there is a beauty in its randomness when activated.
Speaking of which, to activate this watch there is a touch sensor in the centre of the screen! Upon pressing the screen, it would break and then the time would become visible. I personally would love to see this happen in reality as im sure if done right it would be a very exciting thing to behold!
It would also be a great talking point and would probably be something you would want to see again and again. Going back to the prank thing, it would be great to see someones face when you asked them to press it and watch their reaction.
Maybe if its possible to add a mirrored screen ontop of the E-Paper display then this would enhance the effect greatly!!
Lastly, a touch sensor strip on the side would be used rather than the usual A&B buttons.
Setting the time – slide finger up to move hands anti-clockwise or slide finger down to move hands clockwise.
I hope you like this one guys…justin
UPDATE: Version using centre digit for hours, dark crack for 5 min intervals & cracked shards for single mins 1-4
