Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I was doing some sketching and scribbled a simple 12/5/9 display layout made up of three ellipses. This simple layout had a slightly alien look to it that could interpreted as some kind of unidentified flying object, or some yet undiscovered creature from the deepest and darkest parts of the oceans. Hence the name “Batiodea” (Batoidea is a superorder of cartilaginous fish commonly known as rays)
The time telling is s straight forward 12/5/9 format made up of three semi-eliptical displays containing 12 LEDs each. The reason for 12 LEDs in each is this allows the wearer to change the order of the hours and minutes to there prefered layout. It also allows for a a phased digits mode.
This design has an alien and organic look which may appeal to sci-fi junkies and/or people with an interest in the natural world, or people who just like string-ray-space-ship shaped products 🙂
This design stands out from others due to its unusal shape and bold display.
