Wheels watch with automotive theme

Design submitted by Clark from Belgium.

Clark says:  The design of the watch is based on the wheels of my own car.

The strap is from rubber and it represents the tires of a car. The strap also has the grooves that simulate the real tires of a car. I think this design should attract car lovers and sportive people.

The time telling is quite simple, once you know how to.

The star of the wheel has six arms, which are divided in 2 parts that lid up.

These parts display the hours. On the left side of the wheel the minutes x10 are displayed,

while the right side represent the minutes.

  1. Very good, I like the mix of digital & 12-5-9 in the time telling & the tyre effect. You could of course have the option to show it the other way around too. Hours as digits & lines as 5, 10, 15 etc.

    It does remind me of of the P-Zero design on this blog, but cars/bikes often do form the inspiration of a design.

  2. As regular blog peeps will know I’m a bit of a petrol head so any car or motorcycle inspired designs will appeal to me. This design is right down my street. Some folks may says its a bit literal. My only issue is it might be a little too similar to p-zero but I would still love to see a tyre tread strap on the watches page. Best of luck! 🙂


  3. Another petrol head checking in. This does seem similar to PZero, and even Blade and its precursors, not that that’s a bad thing. I like how you’re not using just the spokes to tell time, it gives it a bit of distance from Blade, PZero et al. Just a thought, but perhaps putting a cross drilled rotor behind the wheel would open up some options for time telling. LEDs could show through the holes. Just a thought.
    I love the idea for the band. I think a more aggressive tread pattern, like a Pirelli PZero Rosso or PZero Corsa might give it an extra little punch.
    I think you’re definitely heading in the right direction. Your concept is great, I just think it needs a little something to set it apart.


  4. Cool theme nicely executed. I like the shape of the spokes. The face could be a little less flat… like the middle has another height, the frsming circle could have too. I really like the light on the bottom side. As I’m not a petrol head, I’d stick with a leather strap. Good luck Clark!


  5. I like the way the hours are divided. Sometime I feel like the hour should start over the digit on the right side. It would be nice if it was possible to choose where it’s starting.
    I like that it combine a modified analog & digital.
    I like the design on the strap. Sadly, I hate rubber/silicone straps, because it’s easy to break them.
    At least, here it would be easy to replace, which is also an issue.
