Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: I had an idea for a simple LED watch using inspiration from the rear diffusers sported by modern performance cars. These diffusers are often elaborate looking extruded forms with various fins and facets. I decided this inspiration could create a nice display frame. “Exostrusion” was the result.
The time is told by LEDs arranged in four quadrants, the top two quadrants display the hours and the lower two the minutes. The quadrants are divided into the appropriate number of segments by an extruded form. The time can be displayed in 12hr and 24hr formats with the centre segment acting as a AM/PM indicator. This display layout would also allow for a phased digital time telling mode. The time and modes are controlled by subtle soft touch controls mounted in the strap, highlighted by two indents.
This design has a retro sci-fi industrial look that may appeal to people who are fans of games and film. It may also appeal to petrol heads who can relate to the original inspiration.
The almost waffle like extruded form that frames and divides the LEDs separates this design from others.
