Matt says: I wanted to do a watch with 2 vertical scales & give it a futuristic look.
Both side of the case are angled at around 26 degrees, or at 45 degrees where the buttons are and flat under. I made a picture (diagram/buttons options) explaining different possibility for the buttons. My 1st idea was to use a touch screen with 4 decorative, clickable, buttons, to give it the futuristic touch of combining current tech with decorative elements from the past.
Now the time telling: The reading method is the 12-11-4. The left column is the hour and pm/alarm/date, on top. The right column is the minute: 11 x 5 min under and the +1 to +4 over. Each column is composed of 13 rows and each row is divided in 5 areas. As the time passes, the scales are filled up from the bottom toward the top.
This example use the LED version: Each 3rd hour / 15 minutes have the 2nd or 4th light off. They look like exclamation point, with the point toward the outside. The single minute are divided as 1 & 2 on the bottom row and 3 & 4 on the top row. They each use 2 lights and the one in the center is off at 2 & 4. The “feature” line alternate between 1 on and 1 off. The “feature” line and the single minutes are always immediately on top of the hour/5 minutes. (The same principles applies to the LCD)
Fans of sci-fi and peoples who like scales reading or who use scales measurements in their work would wear it.
