Logan says: Space Engine is a subtle geometry for the 12-5-9 method of telling the time. I wanted to see how close to a traditional watch layout you could use with 12-5-9, to make it as easy to read as possible.
This is an updated take on an old submission of mine: Sliderule (hence the name; like sliderule, only more so). It’s been rattling about in my brain for ages, and I just recently found the energy to finish it.

Austin says: The hours are displayed on the left of the face, while the minutes are given on the right. The hands work from bottom to top, then start over again. The seconds are given by the top hand, and the lower hand shows the day of the week. So in the picture, the time is 07:45:40 on a Sunday.
Smart watches are the must have gadget of the moment. They have been a popular theme on the blog too, with various weird and wonderful schemes suggested. One of the main issues the blog has highlighted is that not everyone who likes these weird and wonderful schemes necessarily needs all the expensive features that come included in a smart watch, and more importantly they don’t want to pay for features they don’t need.
Sam says: I played once more with digits that got stolen the center segment and thought about emphasizing the the void on the hardware level of the watch design. This is how the two columns of LEDs were made.
When I first designed the Droplet pendant watch for Ladies, I thought about how when drawing round objects to make them look 3D, it often helps to include a reflection on the curved surface. On a long chain, it’s easy for the wearer to turn it around to see the time, yet still have a neat looking fashion accessory.
