Design submitted by Matt from Canada.
Matt says: I wanted a watch that was using 3-4 blocks for the hour/month and color changing LED’s for when the blocks are used for the 2nd/3rd/etc series of numbers. For the minute, I wanted 2 big digits for the minute/day.
I wanted to use a 1 piece lens & add a grid over it. The best size is a challenge. This is why I did 3 pictures/2 3D models. Engraving the lens was another option.
The result is: A black lens covers the LED’s. A grid, that divide a block in 4, pass over it. (Or go around them & etched lines divide them in 4.)
The band is a little bit over 1/3 of the width of the case. It has inlays matching the grid. The sides of the band and case could have matching inlays.
How to tell the time:
Hour = The 3 blocks on the left.
Reading order = bottom to top.
1-3 = red lights
4-6 = green lights
7-9 = blue lights
10-12 = white lights
Minute = The 2 big digits at the center. (The 1 use the central column.)
Features (PM/Alarm/Date) = The 3 blocks on the right.
Reading order = PM at the top; Alarm at the center; Date at the bottom. (Or bottom to top.)
The color of all the LED’s matches the color of the current hour.
Any 4 colors sequences can be used. It’s possible to add animations like chequered sequences with 1 to 4 color(s), or line by line. Big/small blocks & any direction are possible.
