Design submitted by Peter from the UK.
Peter says: This is “Geoglyph” a watch inspired by the phenomenon of crop circles. These elaborate geometric patterns (however created) can be as beautiful as they are mysterious. They also lend themselves to an unusual watch display.
The time is told in a variation of a 12/12/4 format arranged around an analogue shaped display. The circles placed at the hour positions are made up of a rings of 12 x 5min blocks and 4 single minute blocks. The display fills up in a kinda of analogue fashion, when a ring is complete it denotes a complete hour and it continues to the next. I have varied the size of the circles which also alows for extra makers in some of the centres, they could denote modes, notifications or alarms and chimes etc, and there is a PM indicator in the centre of the display.
I have chosen just to show the basic time, but if a more complicated look was deemed attractive, other information like seconds and date could be displayed (like Rogue touch)
This display layout would also suit the time telling method as per my “Supernova” and “Vector” concepts using the rings to show 15 single min blocks and the 4 blocks inside being groups of 15 mins.
This design would suit most display types like LCD, LED or e-paper as my examples hopefully show.
Although the inspiration for this design has paranormal or spacey connotations the watch has a modern and geometric feel. So hopefully it will appeal to a wide range of people from UFO spotters to arty types and everyone in between.
The crop circle like layout and unusual time telling format sets this design apart form others 🙂
