Sam says: This is a parallel development of a more feasible version of the ITO idea next to the ITO•E. I called this version ZION.
ZION uses colored segmented e-paper to display sharp numbers, aligning them vertically. The number style is reflected in the watch geometry – some sharp angles here and there, some small decent details, and looking generally simple.
I suggest acetate case and straps not to only have black watches but colorful ones. The all-around-the-wrist line is a little cheeky this time. It penetrates the case where the display line would do so if being continued. Letting the line perform this way, creates another sort of continuity compared to a line that has to “climb” over the display border.
The combination of always-on e-paper and a similar looking element outside the display and the mixture of simplicity with humble details makes ZION an interesting piece or wristwear.
